Guten morgen, mein Anhanger der Angst. Translation: Good morning, my Followers of Fear.

Well, it’s official. I’ve found a job. I was going to wait to announce this when I had all the full details, but I was like, “F*** it,” and decided to post it. Besides, this is such good news, I can’t keep it under wraps for long.

So, if you haven’t seen my Facebook post or tweets yet, I’ve accepted a job with the US Army Civilian Corps, and I’ll be working through some point in September with them (possibly longer, but no guarantees). To be specific, I’ll be working with their Equal Employment Opportunity Office in Wiesbaden, Germany. Yeah, that’s right. I’m heading to Deutschland! It’s been a year since I’ve been to Germany, when I was in Berlin with my study abroad trip, and I’ve been wanting to go back to Europe ever since. I can say with great happiness that opportunity is come.

As for what work I’ll be doing, it’s mostly going to be dealing with policy changes, as well as a newsletter. Yeah, that’s right. I’m working on a newsletter. I actually landed a writing job. Can you say, “OH YEAH!”? Writing is my life, and this will help me work on my skills and build a portfolio.

I leave for Germany May 31st–ten days from now–and will arrive in the evening on the 1st in Frankfurt, which is not too far from the base I’ll be staying at. Some of the details are still being finalized, but that should be coming along soon. In the meantime, today I’m doing a lot of stuff related to getting ready to move out of my apartment and get ready to fly to Europe. Trust me, it’s going to be crazy!

And does anyone remember that Tarot metaphor I used back when I graduated? Well, it looks like that next cycle of my life is starting. How long it lasts or where it’ll take me, nobody knows. Still, I’ll be having a ton of fun as I dive right into this next challenge, and I hope you’ll stick with me as I enter the next phase of my life. Wish me luck, Followers of Fear. I’ll see you next time (probably in my review of Poltergeist).

  1. OH YEAH! Rami that is just brilliant! Congrats!
    I’m sure it will be a right adventure and exactly the right path for you. I’m happy you’ve found this job and hope it’ll make you happy too!

    • Thanks Katja. I’m very excited, as well as very busy trying to get everything together before it’s time to go. I can tell you this though: I might be taking a break from the television for a while, even for shows I like. I might be too busy for TV.

      • Totally understandable!!! As hard as it is for me to accept it, sometimes there’s no time for TV …

        Don’t worry about getting everything in order, I’m sure it’ll work out fine. I always tell the story that I packed the suitcase for my 6-month-stay in the USA the night before I left. (Of course I mostly neglect to mention that I thought about what to take with me for weeks). Still, you can do it!

      • Thanks Katja! I have a feeling it’ll go okay. It usually goes that way anyway. I may forget a thing or two, but usually it’s nothing that important that I forget. I’ll keep my fingers crossed though, because it would suck if this was the one time I forgot something really important!

      • You’re welcome and I’m sure you won’t! Maybe you should make like a check-list for the things that are really essential. Everything other than that, that you might forget isn’t that important.

      • I might just try that. Thanks for the suggestion.
