She shouldn’t be nervous. I’ll be at the store to buy my cd when it opens. Yes, I buy my music!!!!
Well this entry will be about the future. Just what that holds is a mystery.
I’m at a mid life point and facing a lay off from the RCMP. I feel very bitter about this. I’ve been on contract for 10 years and worked on long term project files. Very difficult to land a permanent position when you work projects.
I find it hard to just get out of bed in the morning. It’s not been an easy year so far and last year wasn’t any better. But I’m trying not to look at the past and move forward. My plans to move to England was and is still in my mind a failure. I’d still love to be able to explore that idea but I need to establish myself in something first.
I want to think of something else to do with the rest of my working life. Writing has always been something I love to do. I’d love to review music, movies and TV shows. But there’s a lot of people doing that already. Maybe I’ll start a blog and try it out anyhow.
I can be gobby and opinionated so that may be the path for me. I’d love to be my own boss. But being disciplined enough to write a lot will be an adjustment.
Well dreams have dashed and gone away. I tried my best to get a job in London and it wasn’t to be. The economy is so ravaged over there and me being an outsider wasn’t getting any luck. So I decided to stay put. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, that’s for sure. I took a vacation and became very ill from being run down.
I was accepted back at my old job but it’s not the best of circumstances. They’re great people (most of them) but it’s not a challenge I (barely) get up for in the morning.
I looked into another passion of mine. Voice over!! Doing some research on line and I found out there were workshops and courses I could take.
Well I found a company in Vancouver that does workshops in the evenings and boom I signed up. I hope it’s all cracked up to be and that I can have some fun. It’s a hard business to break into but it’s worth a shot. I’ve spent years mimicking accents and doing children’s voices and I always seem to amaze people and make them laugh.
Therefore, I am still dreaming on, keeping on and looking at other avenues in life.
If I stay stagnant I know I’ll lose it. It’s been hard giving up one dream. I went through a very bad time after my decision but we’ll see what happens.
If the voice over thing doesn’t work, writing is another avenue I would love to delve into more.
For now, I hope to keep on keeping on and have a few laughs along the way!!
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. I guess Twitter seems to keep my interest most of the time.
It’s been quite a year so far full of life decisions and big ones.
20 years in the making and dreaming and I’m finally moving to London, England!! Jolly Old, The Old Smoke. Whatever you call it I’m beside myself and scared shitless.
It’ll be the best for me and never wonder what if…. moments that I can think of doing. It means leaving a semi-secure job at the RCMP. Which I’m seriously not too sad about. The people for the most part are great but the politics and game playing is pathetic. It’s time to move on before I become a very angry and bitter person.
I’ve given the RCMP 10 years of good work and 10 years before that with the Delta Police Department. I love working Homicide files which I’ve been working for the last 12 years. Some very serious major cases has been my speciality most with serial killers. No wonder I’m a bit fucked up. I hope to remain and get back to normality after leaving and I won’t miss it too much. It’s something that sucks you in and you can’t let go of.
I hope to work in the History field in London. Well it’s a good place to do that. I love the history of London and I am a monarchist. God Bless the Queen. The Diamond Jubilee was a fantastic spectacle to watch and all the Royal Family were captivating (well except for perhaps one). I’m a Princess Diana fan. It’s something I’ll never forget watching on the telly. The next big event will be even better in person.
It’s been a year in the planning for my move to London and I’ve gotten my application for my working visa submitted, suitcases aside ready to pack. I’ve been going through all my accumulated crap and tossing and ditching a lot of it. It’s going to be a stellar of a garage sale (car boot sale) near the end of August.
Deciding what to take with me is going to be interesting. Looking at flats on line on what I think I’ll be able to afford are teeny tiny. That’s in central London but on the outskirts it’s not too easy to get around with a vehicle. So central London is where I want to be. In a safe area hopefully. I’m not too concerned in having a small place but want to be safe and close to amenities.
I don’t really know too many people in London but have met a few great people on Twitter through family in Cornwall. It’ll be great to meet them and hopefully become closer friends.
It’ll be of course really hard to leave my family and my cat Lucy behind. Well Lucy is really Mom’s cat but she’s such a doll and I’m going to miss her to bits. Mom and Dad are aging but I can’t let that stop me. I have no children (thank goodness) and nothing else really tying me down here. I really am excited to be going.
I hope to have landed a job before I leave. I’ll be working very hard and on the computer a lot to hopefully land something before I leave. So then all I’ll have to do is find a place to live when I arrive. I don’t have an executive wardrobe but am hoping to land a senior level position. No junior pay for me, I’m afraid. Can’t go backwards in life.
