My word, 11 weeks have gone quickly! But tomorrow, 80 days after leaving my job in London and 55 days after leaving the UK, I finally start my new job in the EY building you can see in the photo (to the right of the squarish turquoise one). Nice location, huh?
I’m feeling a mixture of excitement, apprehension and disbelief! Moving here hasn’t really felt real throughout the whole process, and I still don’t think I’ve processed the idea of going to work in a new place, or indeed going to work at all after getting so used to being on holiday! But I’m very happy not to be living out of a suitcase any more (I’ve moved into an Airbnb flat for 4 weeks), a routine will be good, my body will be thankful for fewer calories and units of alcohol and my bank balance for a salary.
I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things, but I’ll need to turn the brain on to learn about new market, new colleagues, new company… must keep telling myself a new challenge is a good thing!
