Dearest Devious Deviants,As you've probably noticed I am a bit absent here lately. There is a reason for that. I have a bit of a news, which I wanted to post weeks ago but life and packing took over... so the big news is that I gave notice at my work and this Friday will be my last day at work after 5 years! You know my love/hate relationship with my work, so i have to say I am extremely happy this is happening!
Few weeks ago I got this magical phone call with a magical opportunity and it all seems very surreal, because it is like ten steps up in my career and great salary (so I don't have borrow cash from my parents to survive a month) and many great opportunities, meeting many interesting people from different countries. So seriously... it is pretty damn amazing.
I mean, I want to be a photographer and make a living of that but we all know how it is and I like to eat sometimes, so I need a day to day job
There is a catch though, I have to move from my beloved Ireland. You all know my story and know that I have moved here over eight years ago and that was my dream come true. I wanted to live here since I was eight or nine. Although, I'm not Irish, this is my home and I was always accepted here, most of my friends are here, my favourite Italian winery is here, my first proper photo exhibitions were here... so it is very bitter sweet situation. I am very happy and excited but every now and then I get really sad. I'm bursting in tears few times a day and now I feel quite emotional too, so excuse me for any typos.
So, this is it, I don't know what else I can write... Oh, I'm moving to Brussels. I was there for an apartmet hunt and I have to say I really liked it. I am packing for last two weeks and I can't see the end of it, so today I'm in a panic mode - I pretty much look like this -> or this -> and this ->
cause I am leaving on Sunday... ahhh wish me luck... I will keep you posted... my next journal will be from Belgium!
I'm not saying goodbye to Ireland it is just see you later... this is and always will be my home
