Lately my blog posts have been rather impersonal. This being partially because I have so much else I’d like to blog about, but also because I’ve not had time to really sit down and write something serious.
That’s why I thought this post could contain a bit of information on how we are doing with the whole moving to Sweden thing.
“I wish I had some more information” I’ve been saying this over and over to myself (and others) for the last couple of months. People keep asking if I know anything more about the moving, and my reply has been “Only that we are moving in the end of August“.
However this time I know a bit more! Yesterday I received a mail from one of the people in charge of human resources at our Swedish office, asking what kind of apartment we would like. If we wanted with 2 rooms or more, how much rent we would be able to pay, and what kind of job Alina might be interested in. I hastily replied that we would love at least a 2 room apartment, with 6500,- NOK as max rent, and Alina would prefer NOT to work with cleaning, children or old people. Other then that she would be cool with more or less anything.
We are yet to receive a reply on this, but I was told they are two people working on finding us an apartment, which means we should be receiving a mail soon about the details. I’m quite excited to see what they find and if we will be able to see photos of it. What would be even better, would if someone from our office in Stockholm would be able to check the place out, and OK it for us.
As for moving our things from Trondheim. We have been informed that they will pay for a moving company to drive all our things to Stockholm. How we will get there, I’m not sure of yet, but I’m guessing it’s by plane, sponsored by the office. If not, we’ll just find some way to get there, all tough plane would probably be the best option.
What’s even cooler, is that our company have started a separate department just for our 1.line support, and it will be located in Överkalix in Northern Sweden, this means I will probably not be taking any more phone calls from old ladies wanting help with their E-Mails accounts anymore. Currently there are 7 new people starting with full 1.line support there, while us in the Stockholm office will be focusing on 2/3.line registry and technical issues. Just the way It’s supposed to be.
As we get close to moving, I can’t stop from feeling a bit sad about it. Moving away from all the people I’ve come to know and love in Trondheim. I have been living here for roughly 6 years now, and gotten to know some amazing people. I’ve grown to love this city and how relaxed and pretty it is, I’ve found a job I enjoy doing and a girl that I would gladly spend the rest of my life with.
Hopefully I might move back some day, and settle here, but for now, I am willing to move where ever I am needed, In order to improve my career. Seeing as my education is rather slim, I need all the experience I can get. Even if it means moving from loved ones.
