I’ve said it before and now I am sticking to my word but i think I need your help.
I have for many years now been thinking about leaving the world of theatre and doing a proper job of sorts and my love of hiking and the outdoors along with the British heritage leads me to the conclusion that I should be wearing a green jumper with an acorn/oak tree leaf logo upon it. This is of course the symbol of the ‘National Trust‘ a very highly respected organisation and charity that protects and looks after a lot of the coastline and countryside of Britain along with maintaining many of the large country estates.
Now I have been applying for these jobs and each time have been unsuccessful. I’ve tried trainee jobs, full-time, part-time you name I have submitted an application form all with little success. So on the last letter of refusal along with the bleak forecast of my current profession and the lack of work on the horizon I thought enough was enough and turned back to my dream of going to New Zealand. The thought has once again reemerged in my consciousness and I have applied for a working holiday visa which I have been accepted. So all I need to do now is not chicken out and go travelling.
So this is where you all come in, if anyone has or are currently living in New Zealand or have also travelled this great country then please get in contact with me. I will of course be keeping you all informed on my plans. The reasons are simple. I think I may be having some sort of mid life crisis ten years early. A lot of people say when you are 30 you get a feel for what your life should be doing and at the moment I am not there. I have no house, no ties or commitments while I am making a living my career has stalled and is not where I thought it should be at. While I can I might as well take the opportunity to explore another country and what a country it is.
So who knows the next blog post may be from Auckland or Wellington. It won’t be as I am sure I will be blogging again before the week is out and I am not planning on boarding a plan till best year.
