Each time Will and I move to a new city we do it the same way - no house, no job. Now, don't get me wrong it is incredibly exciting. We both love doing things this way and it does always work out. However, after the novelty of a new city wears off and reality sets in you're left in this weird area of limbo. Three weeks in Edinburgh and limbo has hit - hard. I can't go out and enjoy myself because life costs money and with no job I feel guilt with every swipe of my card watching my bank account drop. During this time my self esteem joins my bank account in the action of dropping. I know I shouldn't take every rejection from a job personally, but I do - bastards. I kid mostly, I'm not that negative about it. But setting yourself up in a new city each year is a strange thing. Leaving the life that you've worked towards familiarizing, to throw yourself in the deep end and start from scratch. It is the gypsy life I chose though and one that I ultimately love.
The job hunt is still going strong and I have had a few interviews this week so here's hoping! It seems as though there are less jobs available in Edinburgh compared to New York but of course there is also less competition. The weather hasn't been ideal during this time of unemployment. Umbrella's don't even work here because the wind just shuts it down. Will and I are taking a trip to The Highlands this weekend and I can't wait to see some Scottish countryside! I will most definitely be blogging about it.
Until next time friends.
