I just heard the news from my US employer— my supposed start date of April 1 was moved to an earlier date, exactly a month earlier.
At the moment, I really don’t know what to feel. I’m excited about the new experience yet sad because in a few, I’ll leave the people whom I love dearly. It might be a short time, but for someone who is very attached to others, it would definitely be a big deal. I’m pretty sure I’ll cry a bucket of tears continuously for weeks before and after leaving.
I have a lot of things to fix— visa processing, my resignation, my housing there, and so much more. And the hardest part, is to condition myself.
Dad just left for an emergency work load. He’s the one supposed to fix my papers since I still have work and now, I don’t know how I would be able to juggle things. I don’t know how would I say goodbye to my office mates. I might not be happy with what I’m doing but I’ve learned to love the people here.
I worry about my Mom and my sis. They’re like kids who are dependent to me. I am too, with them, actually. It would surely be hard for all of us. But I know, they would definitely be happy for me.
And then, my partner— who is actually with me in this. It would surely be hard for both of us. But I believe in us. I’m sure love would save us from all the sadness.
I had my whole life planned. And then— I met this very special person, I forgot about everything.
I started from scratch again. I’m glad I actually didn’t felt the need for revisions— everything’s new.
And I’m more than happy that everything’s going smoothly as planned and I’m getting things one step at a time.
In 10 years, I would be managing my own restaurant. Details are already written, I just need to make it happen.
And I’m taking my first step towards making THAT dream a reality.
It would be tough but it would definitely be worth all the hard work and sacrifices.
