Never going back!|
I left the US earlier this year because I'd married a Scottish guy.
Seriously, guys, best decision I ever made, and I'm not even putting my husband into the equation. Free health care, yo. Paid sick leave. THREE weeks paid holiday in my first year of work. A good job making more money than I made in the US, and doing just about the same thing. A 35 hour work week, and it's flexible.
Best of all, I can turn on the TV, and hear reporters asking questions of politicians that I would ask. I can be bisexual fairly openly without worry. The weather's not so bad -- a bit of a change for this Arizona girl, but a welcome one. And the history. The free museums. *drool* The hills in the distance, the heather, the green green grass, and the summertime fog.
I haven't just fallen in love with my husband, but his country as well, and I'll be glad to make my home permanently here.
