I might lose my job.
I say might because right now everything is up in the air, but it’s looking like I’ll be unemployed again starting the end of the January.
I’ve known since I started that this might happen. I was hired on as a seasonal (I.e, temporary), employee which means that I was only guaranteed employment until the beginning of 2010. My hope was that a permanent position would become available before my contract ended, but unfortunately (fortunately?) life has other plans for me.
What those plans are exactly, I’m not sure. I’ve been bouncing around some ideas the last few days, one of which involves moving to South America to teach English and study Spanish. When I was in Colombia a couple of months ago, I met this British guy who was taking a three-week intensive Spanish course for only $180 US and that included all of his meals and a discount on his hotel stay.
As part of my compensation for finishing my employment contract, I get four, free round trip tickets to anywhere my airline flies. So since my airline flies to South America, I’m thinking of taking the money I’ve been saving to buy a car and using it to fund a move to Chile or Argentina.
….What do you think? Should I move country again or try to find another airline job?
