I have my San Jose secondment offer in one hand, my plane tickets in the other and my US visa in the bag! It is exciting to say that this is happening – I head to the US on 16th September. I have counted and that is just 22 days away. So I will close my eyes and imagine the very best version of myself possible; I will become her.
It is a strange feeling to be so excited about this opportunity; to live in one of the most desired and liveable countries of the world and yet to feel so sad that my long term partner cannot join me. How different an experience it would be if he were by my side.
I can only hope that absence will make the heart grow fonder!
