It's Happening
Monday, March 16, 2009
I've been having some pretty serious conversations with Aussie Man lately. Before I go on, I want you to know that I've been praying a lot about this as well. Not the kind of prayer where I'm saying "God, please make this happen, find a way for us to be together." More like asking God to help me follow what He has planned for me, asking for strength to accept His will if it is not the same as my desires, and praying that I will not be tempted by fantasies and projections in this relationship.

So as I was saying, these serious conversations all have to do with who will end up moving where. I know it's a big move for me to go to Australia, considering all my family lives here, but without going into too much detail, I've decided that I want to make this work, I need to be close to him, and I want a change of scenery in my career. So yah, I told my parents about this some time ago, and yes they're a bit sad but I think they support me. Okay, that's fine. Up until today this was all just talk and ideas floating around.

Well I spoke with HR this morning. To my surprise, people here are very supportive of me making the move and in a matter of less than an hour, I've been given instructions on what I need to do to get this ball rollin. I need to a) update my resume b) get in touch with someone in the Sydney office who can meet with me while I'm out there in April c) find out what the opportunities are and d) see what my alternatives are if I can't make a transfer with the firm. Obviously I'd like to stick with the firm, so I can get sponsored with a work visa, but who knows with the economy if they even have opportunities there.

Anyway, after I got out of that meeting with HR, I felt both excited and scared. Like wow, is this really happening? I could potentially be moving to Sydney within the year, how crazy is that?
