You know what? I’m actually cheating by adding this now. I’ve already done it. A few months ago – back in June, in fact – I was blogging about the need to move out, and abroad. I told myself I wouldn’t make a goal to be living in Sweden by that time next year as I would be very disappointed in myself if it didn’t happen.
So, with that non-goal not-set, I’ve accomplished it, in half the time. I applied for a job which was not only in the part of Sweden I wanted to move to, but actually required the use of my languages, French and Italian. And I got it. I arrived here exactly one week ago and started my new, awesomely geeky and language-based job on Wednesday.
I actually am living and working in Sweden. It’s still not entirely sunk in. I’m currently sat on my best friend’s sofa as I don’t yet have my own place, but I’m here and that makes me so happy. 19 months ago
