At this point I have confirmed with my bosses that I will take a sabbatical from work for one year. Crazy??? yes but needed. Most people take sabbaticals because their in a rut or they hate their lives or jobs etc. For me its nothing like that, I have the perfect job and the perfect bosses who asked me not to resign but instead take the year off. I am taking a break from life to experience a new culture , pick up a new language and to ensure life doesn’t get too predictable. I am pretty thrilled with the idea of living in South America and working from a dainty beach office.. ” I cant seem to stop smiling as the thought is just so pleasant”.
Well the director of the script of this movie that was my holiday took some mushrooms or LSD because the next thing during the fairy tale was definitely the worst phrase of my year “I am still in love with my Ex”. This was said to me right after a pleasant night of the great Koln Christmas market. On this dark cold night, my first reaction was what the hell? then what the HELL, then What THE HELL, after a couple of this I said “I wan’t go home now” hahaha. It sounds funny now but then it wasn’t I was seriously going to cancel everything and go back home.
Girl is mad, Girl is sad, Girl hates Boy, Girl Sleeps, Boy seats in silence. its a new day and its the eve of Christmas. So we had our Christmas dinner all planned for 2 in a tiny beautiful city facing the mountain in the South of Germany. With this rather inconvenient short period of time I realized it was too late to change the Christmas plans. I can bet no one beats this Christmas dinner – 2 estranged souls, baked wild salmon, nice crackling fire, wine and Christmas movies. If it were 2 lovers this would be an ideal situation but I got to say I am one strong girl cause I did go through it and came out stronger (and by that I mean I survived 🙂
What would you do if you were in situation, would you leave and go back home, move to a different city the following day or have a Christmas dinner without killing each other as I did? Keen to hear:) Well I have 20 days to go and not sure what to do. Will be back when I figure what is next.
