So, after exactly one year to the day I left Japan, I received a job offer for Milan. What does this mean for the blog?

In the short term it means less gig reviews as I’ll need to find out when/where gigs are over there and it appears bands tour Italy less than Glasgow.

On the upside, it probably means more actual blogging about the Italian experience rather than just Youtube links. If Italy is anything like Japan it’ll mean I have more time to myself, which means more poetry as I get more muses to inspire me to write. It’ll also mean more political commentary about Britain – an irony not lost on me as it makes me appear to care more about the country when I’m away from it than actually in it – simply not the case, let me assure you. It will also mean that I’ll have time to update all my photos on here and take a helluva lot more holiday type snaps.

How do I feel about the move? Nervous as ever; less excited about it than Japan – probably because I’m no longer a virgin to the experience; happy that I have job; ecstatic that I’m getting more EFL experience, particularly since it’s branching out to do business experience; amped to be able to still work on some of my gaming plans while I live abroad rather than being totally cut off from everyone like I was in Japan.

How does it compare to unemployment? Surprisingly, I am feeling the same cocktail of emotions as I did when I had no job.
