Working (and moving) Somewhere Else

Friends, if you really, really care about me you may not want to read this…I am actually looking into sending out resumes to work in UAB (not University Alabama Birmingham) which is United Arab Emirates. If you don’t know this – it is a VERY rich country. Lots and lots of money over there!

I had thought of it in the past, but decided not to put much effort into it. A friend of mine who works for Orkin is on a 2-year assignment over there. He is in the States for the holidays and we were IMing the other day and I asked if he is happy about his decision to go over there. He said “Absolutely. I am debt free, I have money saved, and when I get back in 1 1/2 years I am buying a house in ATL.” DEBT FREE! Did you all see that? He said DEBT FREE! OMG – how I would love that.

So, I asked my parents (because they love me and would surely miss me) how they would feel about me going over there to work. They are all for it if it means positive things for me. I would certainly miss everyone if I went, but it could make a huge impact on my life if I were to do it. Plus, my step-father worked over there for a while and he says its a great place to go. He said it’s the only country in that area he would recommend.

Don’t forget though – I’m still just thinking about it and looking into it. There is nothing definite. Also, have met a few decent possibilities recently in the dating arena and if one of them were to sweep me off my feet – well that would seal the deal for sure!

You never know where life will take you!

About GeminiRed Creations

*cough cough* I’m over 40 and an entrepreneur at heart. I am in Corporate America, but my heart is in being an entrepreneur and supporting small business owners. Although my almost 2 year stint at owning a business was not as successful as I dreamed, it's still a passion and so I now try to put my efforts into helping other entrepreneurs such as my brother who owns Wickedly Wooden (www.wickedlywooden.net) and my friend Heather who owns Rinse Bath & Body (www.rinsesoap.com). I do enjoy my job so it makes it easier to get up and go to work every day even if it's not my own business. Maybe one day I will take a stab at it again...like right now I make handcrafted items such as hair accessories, aprons, and jewelry. In my free time, of course! In my "other" spare time I love to read - especially anything biographical or autobiographical. I also enjoying writing, but mostly for fun and I can write a pretty good “threat” letter when I need to. I’ve been known to get things done! I write about a wide variety of things from the random tomato or piece of food on the ground to the odd things I see in my daily life to politics…now if you don’t agree with my politics that’s fine, but be respectful and don’t post hateful comments.

  1. All right. So, I’d freaking TOTALLY miss you, but… I love the wanderlust and if I didn’t have the lock-down family I do, I’d go with you…
