I’m warning you now, that there will be a grand total of THREE posts today.
While I’m waiting for my first video to upload on youtube so I can write a nail art post, I decided to look into this amazing job opportunity that I saw on Facebook.
At first, I thought that it was a click-bait post. But then I actually googled it and it’s not!!
Now, let me just say right away that I love my job. I never knew I could be so happy at a job. My whole life I have had jobs that I’ve hated. I have dreaded going into work. What kind of life is that?! It sucks. SUCKS. But this nanny job, being my first nanny job ever, has been amazing. I feel so loved and accepted into this family, valued and cared for. The adults I interact with are great, the kids are (mostly) great. It truly is a fantabulous job.
But now, this job pops up! So hear me out:
- in Scotland (SCOT-FRICKEN-LAND! Ya’ll know I lost my soul there 5 summers ago and I still need to go back and find it. My Scottish DNA is begging, PLEADING, with me to go back)
- for 2 kids (5 and 7)
- live-in (private bedroom with a bathroom and kitchen attached)
- 50,000 pounds a year (aka almost $85,000 CND), 28 days vacation PLUS bank holidays
- IN SCOTLAND!!!
Now here’s the catch: the house is apparently haunted and 5 nannies have left in the past year. Also, since this thing hit the internet, the family has had over 2,000 applications.
So do I apply?! I feel like it’s a long shot, and would I even want to leave my work family? Can I really move again when I said I was finished jumping from country to country? But it’s Scotland. My heritage (or half of it at least). It’s not like I’ll be in South Korea again. Mum can’t possibly argue with Scotland. Can I live in a haunted house?
But we should be taking those jumps right?!
