Ever since January, I felt like my plans for this fall have been up in the air. I knew I have to move to Europe, but I had no idea when, or where. I love surprises, but sometimes uncertainty can be slightly nerve-racking. The question came down to, Germany or the UK?
I applied for a teaching position in Germany, which was my first choice. I loved Germany when I was there last summer, and it seemed fitting to live there, after studying the language for several years in uni, and having tons of friends in the country (and surrounding countries!).
My back-up plan to move to London didn’t seem too bad either, with my plan to pursue my art and look for gallery work in one of the world’s largest art meccas. The art scene, fashion culture, and exciting nightlife is also a plus!
Luckily, I got my answer Friday morning, when I received an e-mail announcing that I have successfully been chosen to teach at a gymnasium (German equivalent of a high school) in Ludwigshafen…
I’M MOVING TO GERMANY!!!!!!
It’s a small town, but it’s just across the river from Mannheim, and about 30 minutes away from Heidelberg! And so, in about three months, I’ll be packing my bags once more to begin the first chapter of my exciting new European life!
