These days aren’t easy. So many things to get done, written, filled in, delivered, corrected, said and handshaken. It is tough, confusing and stressing. It almost requires a neurotic approach to ensure that nothing falls between the chairs.
It’s so strange. No matter how hard I work to ensure a smooth transition, how much I would like to prepare for it, is simply impossible. Things cannot be solved beyond a given limit. Then, it will reach that tipping point when it all happens. You know all… At once.
It is scary but exciting, at the same time. We both have done this already of course, but not in such a massive approach. To move as ERASMUS within EU is one thing. To fetch your ass to another timezone, leave your home in someone else’s hands, fleet all your belongings in an overseas container, say bye to your city, your work, your current hobbies/routines and the language that you just started to talk fluently, is a very different event. Still a reason to celebrate, but also a way to uncertainty and slight concern.
We live a good life here which we are thankful for. No way we want to risk loosing it. Still, opportunities like this pop up just once in a lifetime. One should listen to the heart, trust the destiny and pray for everything to go as expected. Just a matter of sticking together, being positive and all hopes will become reality.
I’m turning 27 the 27th of September. My birthday wish is simple this year, actually the same as last year – though probably more realistic now: To find a new doctor who figures out what is so wrong with me, which is the root cause of all my imbalances.
…before all that comes. We need a vacation. Just 3 days to go and discover the South :_)
