Dream job


I just want to give you some updates on my life and what I’ve been up to. I’m going to post rarer this March because I’m currently in Ireland, doing my dream job. I’ll be here for the whole month working at the guesthouse and a hostel. To get here, I had to fly twice and then take two buses. Sleeping at the airport is not something I’m unfamiliar with, but this time I had a worse experience than I did before. I kept waking up every half hour, Italians were loudly chatting on my right side and a some guy tried to fall asleep on me. Literally. He only put his lower part of the body over my lower part of the body. I understand he wanted to spend the night on seats instead of floor, but seriously? I was honestly too tired to fight, at 3am I just gave up and went through the security check. My morning flight was lovely, though.

Today was my second day. I’m so excited, every minute here feels like living my dreams. There are lovely people I hang out with all the time, my boss is very fair, the town is cute… Feel like a better version of home, if this makes any sense. I’m happy. Yesterday I had a nice talk with one of my roommates about hostels in Portugal, another country I’m very eager to visit. Who knows, maybe I’ll go there next. Right now I feel like I’m exactly where I belong.

My work depends on what hour I start and how busy that day is. Today for example we had plently of check outs, but since I started at 7am, I first had to prepare breakfast (I learnt how to cook Irish breakfast!), do the laundry, clean some dishes, tidy around the kitchen and do two rooms. Yesterday I was mainly cleaning. The rooms, kitchen, bathrooms. The best part are evenings, when we all gather and prepare some dinner. Last night we decided to go to an Irish pub after – it was so much fun!

That’s it for today, I’ll be posting more in the next few days, if my schedule allows me.
