I needed somebody to ask me this question. Maybe it will finally make me move my butt.
Don´t get me wrong, I´m not some kind of layabout or anything. Actually I am hardworking and ambitious person. But somehow my life got stucked in past two years and I found myself losing track.
I gave up. Now I know that. I had an amazing job in event management but due to the unpleasant working conditions I decided to quit. I spent two months searching for a new one but wasn´t successful. Maybe I didn´t try hard enough. Or the crisis played it´s role. However, under the circumstances, I ended up choosing the easy solution instead of trying. I left my country for seasonal job and accidentaly stayed here, in Crete, for another two years.
First season I worked as a bartender which wasn´t making any good, ´coz I felt like I was moving backwards. The other summer was way better thanks to the leading position, but at the end, Greek way of "management" didn´t let me show my potencial and qualities.
And now I am trying to figure out why I am still here.. The situation in job market is worse than ever, for me as an outsider even worse.
I didn´t expect myself putting other people above me when it comes to happiness. Unfortunately, even if it comes to love, you just cannot make somebody happy if you are unhappy yourself. Or maybe you can, but I cannot. What´s always made me happy is definitely working, building my career and being a part of this rush.
So my professional goal for now is to get back to the market and find a great job in event management or marketing (´coz these are the fields I see myself in) asap, for next year it´d be improving my qualities and learn a lot, so that in five years (preferably less than that) I can be a proffesional in my field, have enough money to live my life and be happy again...
