Overseas

I have itchy feet, or maybe it's spring fever. I feel like I've been in one place for too long. The same apartment. The same job. The same hair style. The same wardrobe.

I caught myself looking at jobs overseas, wondering what it would be like to just up and go somewhere, anywhere, that isn't here. Just relocate and do something different, somewhere different. A complete blank slate. A chance for new everything.

It's such an exciting prospect.
Not one that I can actually do though. A few years ago, I would have just done it. Just picked up and gone. But now? Not so much. For once, I actually have ties, a reason to stay. (Of course, if Jade Rachel was willing to relocate with me, that would be a different matter).

A change is as good as a break. Maybe I need to redecorate, or look around at different apartments. Send my resume out to a few places. Go to a hair salon and get a new hair cut and/or colour. Buy myself new clothes. Get a make over.

Or just go on holiday... somewhere that's not dreary and grey. That sounds nice. Where's nice this time of year?

Hope you're all having a wonderful few days, regardless of what you do or do not believe in/celebrate ♥

One thing that always amuses me is that despite my parents love of Irish names and basically all things Irish which I was brought up with, is the fact that I’ve never actually been to Ireland. I keep meaning to, after all, it’s not exactly very far away or at all expensive to get to. It’s also not an especially big country, is it? SO I could probably do a week-long trip with a hire car and see most of it.

I know I’d love to spend time in both Dublin and Belfast. Other than that, I have no idea what else there is to see and/or do. Part of me wonders if maybe I should look into it, put together some kind of itinerary and go. But then there’s the other half of me who’s still a rebellious teenager who wants the opposite of what my parents want.

Then there’s a whole thing between my parents and myself that’s not what this post is about. This is supposed to be about Ireland and my lack of knowledge of the country’s sites. I almost just googled ‘visit ireland’ while typing this. Almost. I’m not sure how close I came to hitting enter.

I wonder what Brody things of this whole thing. I wonder if he’s been there. I wonder if there’s a ditch to leave him in!
