Back Home, No Not there but Here!

Well after an long day of travel I’m back at life No.3. I have been back now for a couple of days but I have just been to disconnected from everything to update.

So, it’s hot. Mid thirties and wet. It rains really heavily for an hour then just stops. The sun then comes out for awhile and the sequence repeats. It’s good to be back. Now I have to start searching for some kid of income. I need to get my act together and start a job hunt at some point.

Home, finally

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.

Finally, home. Well England and in particular Stratford-upon-Avon and it will always be home for me. Life No.1. William Blake’s Jerusalem always brings a small tear to my eye. Especially when I get my first glimpse of the Green and pleasant land as I cross the ocean from Sweden. It’s nice to be back.

I worked hard…

Phew. This picture could have represented my fate. Fortunately I’ve been saved. No longer will be held hostage. No longer will I be discriminated against. No longer will I be asked to quit my position because it was deemed I couldn’t do my job by someone who couldn’t do theirs. No longer will it be suggested that I was only working there to have something to write on my CV. No longer will I be the dumping ground for all those tasks no one else wanted or perhaps just to make their day easier. No longer will I have someone looking down their nose at me. No longer will I be second.

This could have been my fate.

I worked hard.

Yet despite it all I enjoyed working there. My decision to leave was not easy to make. I enjoyed working with my peers. I enjoyed the diversity of my work. I enjoyed the challenges and rose to meet them. I would have stayed if I were able to take unpaid leave to visit my family in Europe as laid down in my contract.

Double Countdown

‘T minus’ 7 days and counting… Then I will be away to Europe and away from Renaissance College. It makes me both happy and sad. Sad because I feel I have been treated in a very unprofessional manor. Happy because I’m heading to Europe for six weeks to catch up with family and friends. Renaissance College will always be here. My friends and family will not so deciding to leave was an easy decision. It’s not what I wanted to do but I feel I was left with no room to negotiate which in turn left me with no choice. Its a shame but thats life.
