I don’t know what the future holds for me and I’m excited to find out
Suddenly everything turned upside down. School went online, establishments closed, a lot of people lost their jobs and had to go back to their home countries.
We all know how the story goes…
And I found myself in the middle of this chaos far from home, without a job and with no clue of what to do next. I have to confess that I’m pretty fortunate to spend the quarantine here and at least I had time to see some kangaroos. Despite that, my point is: I’ve been dreaming of moving to Australia for 15 years. Is it fair to live it like this? The answer is yes. Although some of the friends I made here just went back home claiming they expected to live the full experience abroad, I think that’s exactly the opposite of what I should to do. There is a reason for me to be here. Some things in life are impossible to control and if I decided to come here now, then that’s the experience I’m supposed to have.
And to be honest, I’m can’t wait to tell my grandchildren all about it!
It is ironic but that’s just how life goes. I don’t know what the future holds for me and I’m excited to find out. And right now, things are starting to get better here, so let me go back to my resume because I might need it in a near future!
