Friends, if you really, really care about me you may not want to read this...I am actually looking into sending out resumes to work in UAB (not University Alabama Birmingham) which is United Arab Emirates. If you don't know this - it is a VERY rich country. Lots and lots of money over there!
I had thought of it in the past, but decided not to put much effort into it. A friend of mine who works for Orkin is on a 2-year assignment over there. He is in the States for the holidays and we were IMing the other day and I asked if he is happy about his decision to go over there. He said "Absolutely. I am debt free, I have money saved, and when I get back in 1 1/2 years I am buying a house in ATL." DEBT FREE! Did you all see that? He said DEBT FREE! OMG - how I would love that.
So, I asked my parents (because they love me and would surely miss me) how they would feel about me going over there to work. They are all for it if it means positive things for me. I would certainly miss everyone if I went, but it could make a huge impact on my life if I were to do it. Plus, my step-father worked over there for a while and he says its a great place to go. He said it's the only country in that area he would recommend.
Don't forget though - I'm still just thinking about it and looking into it. There is nothing definite. Also, have met a few decent possibilities recently in the dating arena and if one of them were to sweep me off my feet - well that would seal the deal for sure!
You never know where life will take you!
