The levels of excitement were kind of hard to describe for a number of reasons.
First, the insecurity faded away. They have hired me and that means that my qualifications and experience count in this country. Having a job also meant feeling relieved money-wise; it meant that we stop eating away our savings and start living on the money we earn. And another reason to be happy was that I found that job before Christmas – people are taking it easy during the festive season and the moth after, many go away on holidays, so if I wasn’t lucky to get hired before Christmas, I could have spent another 2 months looking for a job. My partner also found a job, 4 days before Christmas and felt even luckier than I did 🙂

I didn’t have a chance to tell you about renting my first house here.
Here is what happened: being an Internet junky and spending a lot of time searching for vacant rentals online I expected to find the suitable house that way, but as I said, life is full of surprises. All the properties I rang to ask about were already taken or not willing to accept pets (and I was about to get my dog released from quarantine), so the search had to go on.
