23 year old from South Carolina. Graduated college and decided to take a year off by moving to Odense, Denmark to be an au pair. The adventure begins Jaruary 2014.
Such a relief that both jobs know I’m leaving. I gave them over a months notice because I wanted to leave on good terms and give them plenty of time to find replacements. My last day at Magnolias restaurant will be Dec.12th and my last day at The Francis Marion Hotel will be Dec.20th! The next month is going to fly by now.
Told my work last Friday that I was moving to Denmark!! It becomes more real everyday! I was asked to apply for the Guest Services Manager position that opened up at work. I felt like I had to tell everyone why I was turning down the opportunity to move up to a much better position. I was extremely flattered because the general manager named me specifically for who she would like to take over the position. But now everyone knows I’m moving abroad. Everyone seemed really excited for me. I was so nervous because I love everyone I work with and didn’t want to end on bad terms. Although taking a year off may not be the best career move I think it’s the best thing for me right now. I have to take this as an amazing opportunity and use it to learn more about myself and my strengths. I’m so anxious about leaving everyone but I know the people I love will always be here.
Packing to move out of our house! I’ll be subletting for two months in Charleston and then moving home to Fort Mill,SC for the holidays. Looks like I’ll be leaving for Denmark around January 15th! I’m getting so sad. My roommate Natalie and I have lived with each other for close to three years. She was the best roommate I could have asked for, we never fought. We cried together, laughed together, got weird together. I’m so sad I won’t be able to come home and watch a million episodes of gossip girl with her, take weird pictures of our cats, sit on the porch observing the oddities of our hood at night, drink way too much coffee, carpool to work, and live our ghetto lifestyle on the East side of Charleston. I love her so much. Going to miss her the most.
I haven’t posted on tumblr in years, but figured I better start back up so that I can document my next great adventure.
A couple months ago I started thinking about the possibility of leaving Charleston, SC. I never thought it would be to a whole different country. I will be an au pair in Odense, Denmark for a year starting next January, 2014. Ah! Only three months away.
I figured this was the only time, and the best time in my life to do this sort of thing. My lease is about to end, I hate my job, and I’m newly single. Nothing holding me back. So I guess my logic is that I should use this time to travel the world and “find myself”.
I leave for New York next week to go to the Danish Embassy to get my residence Visa. I can’t believe this is real. I’ve never been to New York, and I can’t believe that I’m going next week! Alone! I just hope that all of my paperwork is correct and there are no problems.
Yesterday my paperwork arrived from Denmark and the strangest thing happened… The envelope was empty! But luckily my au pair mom called the danish embassy and it’s fine if she just scans and emails it to me.
I’m absolutely terrified about what is about to happen. But I guess all the scary things in life end up being the things that change you the most as a person. Let the adventure begin!
Wrong number ho
