I try not to talk about it TOO much, but really, I'm trying to make a career change, and it's a big part of my life right now.
- My time has come to an end in the Finance Department here on the project. Expats come in, they train, they do implement what needs to be implemented, and then they hit the road. Fact of life.
- I can't remember if it's been "blogged about" yet or not... but...2-7 years ago if I had a job interview and I was asked my 5 year plans, my answer would be something like: I'd like to transition into an operational role while using my finance/compliance/internal audit background.
It's hard to explain (and I'll save that for another post...) but I truly don't believe the Malagasy section of my life is over yet.
I'm not broadcasting my job search (well....except over the internet on my blog...), but I've spoken with a few people about a few different opportunities. Nothing concrete by any means - it's all just talking right now, but it's slightly encouraging.
But the main purpose of THIS post is to to truly thank all of the people that I've had rallying around me. Obviously my family and friends, but I've also received some amazing support from people that I never would have guessed and I feel very...flattered.
Not to sound like an Academy Award Winner or anything... but here goes..
First, Thank You to my family. They have 100% supported this weird, out of the blue, crazy journey that's changed our day-to-day lives and taken me over 15000km away. Not only did they accept my decision with excitement; they have been there for the crying phone calls when I was scared or missing home; they have gone through the worrying when I've been very sick and far, far away; and even were cool when I started dating a WAY WAY older guy (that part stayed off the blog :P). Even now that I want to extend my stay here, I constantly receive words of encouragement and understanding. Ok, so technically it's your family's job to support you... but mine has gone above and beyond the call of duty.
|I only wish my family looked this cool! :P|
