I’ve been back in Ireland for 2 and a half weeks. In some ways it feels like I just got back yesterday but in others I feel like I’ve been home for months. Because I’m so fearful of slipping into a non-routine where I just stay at home and binge Netflix or video games I’m trying very hard to be pro-active.
I’ve been viewing apartments even though I have no job and interviewing for jobs even though I don’t have a place to live if I do get a job. As I said previously this is my worst fear – being unemployed with no place to live. Perhaps that’s why I can’t really sit back and enjoy my time off. Also I finished up at work over a month ago….so I’m starting to get a little lazy/crazy.
It can be very disheartening searching for a place to live, even though I haven’t been looking for that long. You show up at a place, if it’s rotten then you try and convince yourself that maybe you can fix it up. If you love it then pretty much 9 time out of 10 you’re competing with other prospective tenants who are waving deposits at the letting agent. And letting agents are the devil.
So powering on through…..hopefully I’ll have a job and a home soon.
