GIOYC stands for "Get it off your chest". At some point of your life you must have known what it's like to have words trapped within your mind.

Below is the second gioyc from Anonymous:

I'm moving to a new city soon. I don't know anyone there. I'll probably be, by far, the youngest person at my workplace. I'm going to live alone with my two cats in a tiny apartment. I have a crippling phobia of driving, meaning I won't be able to travel very far. I don't get much vacation time, and I won't have a whole lot of money left over after rent/food/utilities/etc.
Is this really what life is?

Do I really have to spend the next 40 years doing almost nothing but working?

You're meant to partake in social activities, hobbies, and fulfilling things (building family, charity, religion etc.) during your free time.

If you're putting yourself in a situation where you aren't going to have time to do those things, then that's probably your fault. Even people on the lowest minimum wage jobs manage to live fulfilling lives.

It's a wildcard, but it can be good to live in a place with roommates if you're moving to a new place. Kind of forces you to get to know some people.

It sucks if you get bad ones, but you can always find new ones when your lease is up, or just find someone to replace you on the lease if you all agree that it's a terrible fit

Pharmacist, CPHQ, CHQO, Quality Coordinator, Chemotherapy Preparation incharge. Graduated pharmacy school in 2009 I stood with my classmates as we recited the “Oath of a Pharmacist” in. There is one particular vow that stood out to me as we recited the Oath and I embrace this vow, “I will apply my knowledge, experience, and skills to the best of my ability to assure optimal outcomes for my patients.” I love being a pharmacist because it allows me to use my knowledge, abilities, and talents to improve patient outcomes in the community hospital in which I am employed as the pharmacy clinical coordinator.
