Lately, life has been kind of a whirlpool.
In the scarce past two months events happened with an awesome quickness, leaving me with hardly any energy to do anything else than mechanic survival activities: feeding, sleeping, breathing. Other than that, time was a luxury I couldn´t afford. But all things come to an end (even the worst ones, for as popular wisdom reminds us, there´s always sunshine after the storm). So here I am again, ready for some changes, a new adventure, and a little life update to share.
So, what ever happened to Baby Violette?
1. She got a great job back in late April, which incidentally happened not to be so great.
By now, I am quite sure I could write a good 1000 words about why stressful office jobs are not (and probably will never be) my natural environment. I could tell you about how introverts and big companies do not mix well together, and also quite a bit about how sometimes companies tend to forget it is important to remember trial periods are not just for them to judge new employees, but also the other way around. However, there´s no use to cry over spilt milk, and I always like to move on.
2. She found out she will move to Transylvania next Autumn!
I like to think most of the time life is all about balance, and for some reason, positive and negative events tend to balance themselves through one´s existence. As reasserting this belief, as soon as I quitted my position The Gentle One was offered the opportunity to get a new teaching contract for another university in the North of the country, which means we will live and work in the Transylvanian region for a couple of years, at least. Location is close both to Budapest and Belgrade, so new adventures are coming our way!
3. She finally accepted and understood her own talents, and started working harder to transform dreams into real future aspirations.
I am quite sure everyone has got a specific gift as much as I am sure most of them feel insecure about it. Of course I am not exception at all. For the last decade, I have cultivated my own talent, but at the same time, I have been too scared to consider it as a future professional option. Now, I know this is a topic I tend not to speak about in here (another symptom of insecurity, most certainly) which doesn´t mean it is not one of the greatest if not the only existential battle in my life. I hate being so rudely vague, but I am sure some day I will feel confident enough to tell you more about it. For now, let´s just say I am working on an ambitious project, and trying to collect the professional background support I need. Maybe some day I will use this talent for a living, who knows?
