Firstly I want to apologise for being so away from the blogging world this last week. I went on holiday (which I’ll do a post about soon) and have been super busy since getting back.
But anyway onto the situ… I need your help.
Today was my first day back at work after being away, and what better way to get back into the swing of things then dropping a big ass bomb on my life.
One of my colleagues is due to go on maternity leave in November for 12 months. Today my manager talked to me about the possible idea of seconding the job internally which he would want me to apply for.
This job is different then what I do, it’s not something i’ve thought about doing but it’s still a fun job. Secondly it is also higher paid, in fact two grades above mine *Cha-ching*
I want/have/need to go travelling May-July 2018.
My issue is if I take this job, it will be another year until I go, and a lot can happen in a year. My plan was to go travelling then come back and move out, which i have planned would be in place by next christmas.
The way I see it, is that my life is currently on hold until I get back. I want to go away get it out my system, come back move out, be an adult and get on with my life. Yes i have all these years ahead of me bla bla but i also really want to move out and if i go away next year then i can move out shortly after returning.
This job would be great, and the money would be even better, but the thought of not going away for another…well.. it would be something like another 1 year and 8 months breaks my heart. This is my dream and at the end of the day I have the rest of my life to work.
I want to go travelling and I am not going to get stuck in a job without the chance to go away while i can. The worst part is if i go away it’s not promised there will be a job for me when i get back. I know i will not be working there for the rest of my life but for the next few years it would work great.
I know my decision, will go travelling next year even if that means I come back to no job and can’t move out. At the end of the day without sounding big-headed i am very employable, I’m young and still learning and because i don’t know what i want it opens me up to so many opportunities!
UGH give me your advice please because I’m not capable of thinking for myself! :)))
