Hi gorgeous readers!
I would love every day to be amazing but life is not like that and we experience days where things are not perfect. Today has been a day where I have been thinking a lot. As many of you guys know Johan and I have just moved to a new city. It takes time to get settled in a new city since we don’t know anyone here and everything from doctor to address must be changed from the old hometown to the new one.
I used to be a hair dresser but I had to quit because my shoulder got really ill. Norway has a good welfare system which gives you money if cannot work. I am on some kind of transition program where they pay me when I am transforming from hair dresser to another profession.
The institution in Norway who helps with these kind of things is called NAV. As in any other institution there are some skilled workers and some that should not have been working there. The quality of the help that you get depends on the supervisor you get. I am in a huge dilemma these days since I cannot decide whether I should just keep on receiving money from NAV and let them find me an internship where I get paid less than if I would find a job on my own.
Finding a job on my own is more difficult and would be more time consuming but it would pay better in the long run. I would also have to take a side job since I believe that sitting at home waiting for replies from companies would make me depressed. My boyfriend has gotten a side job and I notice that my mood has not been the best since I have to be home alone while he is at work. I am therefor considering to take a side job just as my boyfriend did to have something to do and earn some money as well. He will keep applying for jobs while he has his side job.
My head has been really busy today where I have been considering my options. I can find good things in both options but I don’t know which one that will turn out to be the best.
Johan and I went to a coffee house in Trondheim called Drommedar where they have the most amazing coffee called sweet chilli. Yep they have chilli in it and it tastes amazing. I love the way the chilli is burning together with the taste of the coffee haha.
Usually I don’t think much before I talk and that is why I can make some grammar mistakes like the ones in this video. I believe I said is instead of are and going instead of goes. Anyway I hope you are patient and that you understand that English is not my native language.
Maybe my bad mood today is because of my job situation and the fact that I did not get a good feedback from the institution I talked with today. I tried to not letting it destroy my day and we went for a walk in our new city and discovered places where we have never been.
I am hoping that you guys would give me some advice or opinions about what you would have done in my situation and helping me to solve my dilemma. Should I go for an internship or a side job first and then a full time job in the long run?
