i'm home!

and once again reunited with these two...

things got a little crazy the past few weeks.
mostly, the craziness was all in my own head,
since I just wanted to be home.
and the appeal of traveling for a couple weeks before returning died quickly.
i missed the fiance too much,
and, if i'm being honest, i really didn't want to spend anymore money.
while i know how to travel on a budget,
money is money,
and i need what I have left.

so, i flew home on sunday,
my 26th birthday,
and was met by my other half and two loving fur babies.
and was surprised by a vegan chocolate cake-
the fiance knows me so well.

home has never felt so good.

now that i am back to reality,
i will have to start looking for a job.
honestly, i have no idea what to do?
what jobs, aside from research, are out there for someone with a bachelor's in biology?
anyone in the sacramento area know of anyone hiring?

stress of job and money aside,
i am so happy to be back.
i will miss parts of germany, of course,
but, i know it was time for me to say goodbye.
it was an experience i will never forget.

no regrets. 

Pin It!

Happy belated birthday and welcome back home! There's nothing like being at home for real comfort, huh? :)

My boyfriend is in the same predicament as far as what to do with a degree in science. But good luck, I hope something will open up for you!

Casey said...

Ahh home already?! Well, I'm so happy you followed your heart and did something just for you! Kudos!! I'm sure Germany will miss you! I'll hold down the fort here while you're gone. :)

Happy belated birthday!

I can understand you so well, home is where happy memories grow... And if those happy ones are the minority --f or whatever reason, it is wise to change it... I did the same. I returned last month from the Netherlands -for good -- as I just wasn't happy there, no matter how hard I tried...

All the best for you and I hope for lots of lovely lost and found notes!

PS How about a job in writing? Starting for a bio magazine or something> ? =) good luck & best regards from Europe,
