Long story short – I was tired of being unhappy and letting everyone else dictate to me how I should feel and how to be treated so I decided to up and leave. One month prior to my new work contract, I told my work I couldn’t stay on.
I booked a one way ticket and now, I am in England. Essentially, I am homeless and jobless as I started off au pairing for 5 days and it was sheer hell. This is exactly what I was looking for, though. To be pushed so far out of my comfort zone, to be challenged, to feel alive and scared and excited. To start something new – it’s all I wanted. So, here’s to an exciting new adventure – I’ve been here just over a week and don’t know what the fuck I am doing. It’s fantastic.
