Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Back to Work


After over 4 months of being unemployed, I am finally working again and it feels great!

Sure, sitting on my butt doing nothing and having no schedule was great for the first few weeks, heck maybe even a month. But soon it became awful.

I work from home now, so I still sit on my butt far more than I would like, but at least I am keeping busy and bringing in some money (read: travel funds).

This little blog of mine has opened up some amazing doors, including this job. One of my lovely readers (and now friend), J., contacted me when I first moved to Bulgaria offering her support and some advice. J. is an expat from South Africa married to a Bulgarian (they have an adorable little girl), living in Bulgaria. It never ceases to amaze me when I meet someone in a situation like mine. I never imagined there would be so many of us!

Anywho, J’s husband owns his own company and needed some extra help, so I now have a freelance writing job of sorts.

I love writing and this job has been a lot of fun so far. Sure, it’s a little tedious at times, but overall I am enjoying myself immensely and am very thankful to be working again.

I am still heading to Alaska in May, but I plan on  writing as much as I can while I am there. Perhaps even making enough to book the cruises I have my eye on!

The best thing to come from all of this? Vince and I met some awesome new friends whom we plan on seeing a lot more of. Nothing beats that!

Life is good.

  2. Good for you! You sure are living the dream – finding the love of your life and following him bravely to new adventures in uncharted waters, and now able to make some money doing something you are passionate at. It just keeps getting better from here!

  3. That is awesome you have a job again. I been unemployed for seven months now and went on two more interviews last week with no luck. Good luck with your job. And let me know if they are looking for people.

  4. Wow, that’s pretty awesome! Do you know if they’re looking to hire anyone else? I have been out of work so long, it’s starting to drive me nuts!
