Jobs and all that...

 As I am currently jobhunting, I have given  a lot of thought to what I want to work with and the compromises I am willing to make. What I mean by compromises is that I have in the past taken jobs I really didn't want for the reason that I didn't want to commute to get a better job, for example.

I have had different jobs in my life. For a long time I worked in the travel/hospitalityindustry. It was never a conscious decision - I just dumped into it and it became my line of  work for many years.  I loved it and I hated it. I can remeber days when hoards of tourists from all corners of the world could give me a real buzz. There where other days when I just wanted the touristseason to end, right there and then - and to smile at them seemed almost impossible, but had to be done.

I have had jobs where it felt like the only task during a day was to turn up. I had worked in the travelindustry surrounded by people at all times, and it seemed like bliss to me to have such a quite job. It wasn't. I realised that I needed a challenge.

For a few years now I have worked as a teacher and with integration in a school. When this job came to an end I started to work with "normal" things in a school. I didn't like that all that much. I think I am the wrong person to work as teacher in that manner. That is not my challenge.

Over the summer holiday I have thought a lot about what I want to do and another aspect of the whole thing - you can't always choose. I have thought about going back to the travelindustry. I have thought about continuing as a teacher/substitute teacher. And then I got an offer. But that involves making some compromises. I will have to commute on a weekly basis.
 If the job had been locally, I wouldn't have thought twice about it. And I wonder if I am a bit foolish to let the commuting play such a major role.

But this will be a challenge, it will pay the mortgage and earlier I have thought that this is something I want to do. I will just have to ponder it for a while.

I always feel I need to have a photo to illustrate my posts and I have chosen this one of the harbour in Bergen. I took it from the boat when I came back from the little island community north of Bergen.

Throwback Thursday...

Moving brings things to the surface. I found this photo in a box. My mother and I in Barcelona in september 2013.

One day I took the boat to a little island community north of Bergen where I had an errand. It was an overcast and humid day. The little moscitos where everywhere. And a beautiful place.

This is what it looks like there:

Holiday time - July moments...

July has flown by...

Holidaytime and time-out...

I have now taken all the boxes out of this room and stored them in  a proper way...

Smoothie month. There was a freezer full of rasberries and blueberries that needed to be emptied.


We have had a bit of rain, but also warm weather and sun. But these two below will bathe whatever the weather does.

There are evidence that there are tourists out there somewhere.
All the things you own! I have gone through stuff that has been stored away for eight years. A lick of paint and perhaps I can use it.


Soon I will leave this view.
It sounds so harsh.

Courting - Wonder what they where talking about!

Enjoying the last of the cityflat that has ment so much to me these past few years.
