Good for you! I too wouldn't mind a lengthy stay in Ireland, but that's not in the cards right now. I wouldn't be scared, as long as you got the job, a little cash stashed away and a roof over your head in a safe neighbourhood you'll be just fine. Friends can come and go and it's amazing what you will experience within yourself when you put yourself out of your comfort zone. Dublin would be not so bad 'eh? I envy you! I say go for it. Only one Life to live right.
It's another beautiful day in Halifax and getting chilly, but it's refreshing. A long walk in the park is in order today and then I'm going to make a nice curry dish for dinner. I have an interview monday so wish me luck. I'm starting to feel at home in this town and I feel a little giddy at times when I think of my brilliant future here in Nova. It is a special part of the world and I couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather be in Canada (Vancouver Island is still a contender though!). Island life does rule. I have to go to Newfoundland soon as well. Hope you are having a great day and thanks for your reply! Chat later. S ;-)
Yes, Nova is a great change, but not unlike the west coast in many ways. The real flavour is in the countryside, which there is a lot of outside of Halifax. The economy is def not the same as Alberta, but it is growing and changing, which many people here aren't ready for yet and some are already fighting the good fight to keep that Maritime flavour: will Halifax just become another generic city. You can blame the developers, as usual. It will be slower growth than Alberta for sure. Hope you figure out what to do after Edmonton, I know that feeling. There's always demand for medical people out here! Anyways, have a great day and we'll chat down the road. Seeya!
Hiya! I just moved from Alberta to Nova Scotia. I just can't relate to the Alberta thing anymore (or BC, where I grew up). It's nice out here and there is definitely a Celtic flavour, though the Irish component is mostly in NewBrunswick and PEI. Nonetheless, I love it here and is a nice change from 'Crazy Town'. Welcome to Live Ireland and I see the lovely Erin O'Connor, our unofficial Canadian/Irish liason has welcomed you as well! Excellent!
