That’s probably the post that better describes how I feel since I came back in June.
I thought I would have never felt that terrible feeling again, but apparently it’s like a curse that follows you everytime you come home. This beautiful curse that makes you dream a new adventure.
How’s going now? well…. It is as I am a stranger in my own house, in my own town, in my own country. I am an alien figuring how to act like a normal human being.
How is it possible?!? it is not.
First of all, although I was home, my mind and heart were still somewhere else. I misjudged the power of missing people you met and places you visited. I have been traveling for 5 years now (Can’t believe it!) and I thought I got used to go to a place and say goodbye to everything and everyboby without feeling bad. But I was wrong. Tremendously wrong. It seems that the more you travel, the more you feel blue when you leave. Or at least, that’s how I feel every time. So I had to recover first from the period I spent in England and then, just in a second time, I could enjoy my summer. It’s never simple when you started getting used to some type of habits and in a day you see them changing under your eyes.
And now, with my mind and daily life full of things to do, I manage not to rack my brain about these past experiences. Who knows, maybe one day this feeling will be considered a real disease and somebody will find a cure to it. But please, if that day came, don’t tell me anything! I want to live with this incurable illness of travelling non stop.
It is worth reading, so do it please! 🙂
Few months ago, I was overwhelmed by far too many things: objectives to reach, things to set up, lives to organise and I brilliantly thought of looking for a summer job. TERRIBLE IDEA!
Months passed and no answered filled my email box. One day magically appeared a new email apologising first for not replying earlier because they had to think of what job they could offer me. That was music for my ears! I was finally offered a summer job, whatever it was. At the beginning, as usual, I was a bit afraid of the work environment, the tasks to accomplish, the method of work ect. I was told I had to help in the promotion of a new line of Piedmontese wines, created by an association of local wineries. So far, REALLY interesting!
The starting day was last monday (it’s just been a week now that I work here) and I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this company and especially this project. I knew wine was involved (and that was the most important aspect for me at the beginning) but the actual day-to-day tasks were rather obscure.
It is quite early to give a definitive opinion on this summer job, but I think I might do it for a long time: it has been a good start, everything is wine-oriented, I have a direct and active contribution to the project, even if it is limited to accomplish some less important tasks, and time flies. So far, it is a positive impression and I really hope it will be like that till the end.
Unfortunately, it won’t last forever, as the due end is mid-september or end of the month, but it will contribute enormously to my CV and my personal growth as I think I finally found my place in the world of work.
More news? soon 🙂
