As the programme comes to an end across Europe, all of the Language Assistants are looking to the future. Most are returning to their university courses to finish studying while others, like me, are now looking for new work or are celebrating another placement abroad.
One thing we can all agree on, however, is that a lot can change in one year and our adventure is coming to a close. Good things will have happened and bad things will have happened too. We will all leave with so many memories of unforgettable experiences.
For me, this year has felt like a roller-coaster. From meeting amazing people in Mallorca to losing amazing people back home. From having the opportunity to live independently on a Mediterranean island to being thousands of miles from my family and friends.
The real countdown has begun and my flight is booked for the last day in June. It really has left me torn because there are two sides to a coin: I am very excited to return home but don't really want this incredible journey to end.
I hope I can find another job soon and hopefully abroad. I would love to keep writing like this about my adventures abroad in a blog. This website really has helped me return to love writing stories in private and to pick up my pen again. I can't wait for me next adventure. Hopefully all of you are excited too!
In one year I hope to be working in a job I love abroad and writing a blog about my adventures there. I also hope that I will be able to return to the UK for a while. I am missing my family and my amazingly supportive girlfriend. Off on another adventure!
Where do you think you will be in one year?
