Half an hour ago the sun was shining… I promise! I did see it! It has now retreated behind the ever increasingly clouds again. Hmmm… this could be used as a really deep, profound metaphor but I am actually talking about the real, actual red-hot ball of fire that hovers above our heads in outer space. You know, the one that has been extremely shy to show its face the last month. Why didn’t I move to Australia or something when I decided to move from the land of the Vikings? Instead I ended up just a short up away in Dublinia…just as some of the aforementioned Vikings.

As much in my life, it just kind of happened. It was never planned that I was going to move to Ireland at all. It seems most of my life develops without me having much of a say in it. This is a bit odd considering that I am known to be a bit of a planner. I like to know what I am doing on a day-to-day basis and am pretty organized. I normally dislike interruption to my made-up daily schedule…sad but true. I have come to terms with that this is how I am, as boring as it may sound. The strange thing though is that all major events in my life have been spur of the moment things. No planning and quite life changing in many respects.

Even the subject I was studying in university (Sociology) was a flip the coin decision. I did love it though. Moving country was another quick decision. Within a very short period of time I decided to get rid of my (very nice) apartment and moved to Cardiff, Wales to study another year… and what a mad year that was! I then after a year and a half decided to accept a job in Dublin, Ireland from one day to the next. And here I still am now, part from a year back to the UK when I thought the grass would be greener on the other wasn’t.

I do like it here still. People are nice and you are free to be whomever you want to be. I have met some amazing friends and a partner to share my life with. Can you imagine that is has been over 10 years already? So yes, I am happy here. I just wish the sun would take up a more permanent residence here as well.

Maybe I should convince all to Australia…come on people, are you up for it?!
