Should I just start and look after a while, do both at the same time... I'm waiting for your answers...
Go ahead and start and see how it feels. If, after a few months or whatever your personal tolerance level is, it doesn't seem right to you, try something else until you find what does feel right.
In the process, keep in mind that frequently something that "feels right" is determined as much or sometimes more by the attitude you take and the effort you put into it than by the environment you've selected.
