On Thursday I had a Skype interview for a position in Abu Dhabi, twenty minutes later my flights were booked and one Saturday morning I made my way to the airport in Frankfurt to catch the 10:55am flight to Abu Dhabi with Etihad. I love flying, the longer the better and Etihad is such an amazing airline. It doesn’t compare to my favourite airlines, Virgin Atlantic, though. On Monday afternoon I returned from Abu Dhabi, I only spent 36 hours in the Emirates and I hope I can return soon. It’s beautiful. The weather, everything is clean and the architectur is all about attention to detail. At the end of the week, I know if I will move to Abu Dhabi or not. I don’t put too much hope into it, I compete with better qualified candidates with English as their mother tongue. The interview went well though and it certainly is a position I can see myself in. Unfortunately due to confidentiality I can’t talk more about this position on my blog or social networks openly.
I have been in Germany for nearly a month now and I really can’t cope any longer. I am in limbo at the moment, I don’t know where I will be next and I absolutely hate this. I have previously blogged about this, but a week in and things are even worse. I want to join the gym, but I can’t. They all require a minimum six months commitment. I don’t have health insurance at the moment and I can’t get it as I am not ‘registered’ in Germany anymore. I would be tax reliable and it’s a bit too risky for me to take that risk. Some would say my health is more important, don’t worry I am insured over my UK bank account for a little bit but it runs out soon and then I have to reconsider my options. I might have to go private for a little bit. Before anybody says I am not paying my tax. I am but in the UK and Germany wouldn’t care too much about it, I would be double taxed.
I haven’t been as active in the blogging world as I used to be and I can tell every blogger that consistency is clearly the key to being successful. I just couldn’t get up and do things. I didn’t reply to emails, I found it hard to stick to my Personal Tuesdays and I just didn’t have the motivation to sit down and write. Luckily I have a few projects now and I know that keeping busy is good. Even though I am umemployed at the moment, I will see my blog as my job and sit down daily for a few hours. Let’s see what happens – my year can only get better.
