Same May but different

Two days after I had the interview in Oslo, the hotel manager called me to say I got the job as fulltime receptionist.

I was relieved and happy, especially because I had given it a lot of thought during the long ride home, and had come to the conclusion that this was the best offer I would get right now. Everything was perfect about this job; the location, the salary, the ambiance of the hotel, the connection I had with the manager.

I’ll start in 2 weeks.

I have turned down the train job, contacted a few others I have been in touch with and stacked away my CV for a while. I can’t believe all the different plans I have had this past winter and all the different places I thought I would go, it took me exactly a year to be back in Norway.

But this time is different.
