Should I?

I want to go to Ireland desperately. However, there's not a hope in hell for me to get there on my own cash for a vacation any time soon.

So I was thinking of applying for a working holiday visa through a program called SWAP.

It'd be a big hunk of time though to save up the cash to go (the Irish government recommends having at least $2000 when you leave, to cover you until you find a job), and I currently have a grand total of 92 cents in my bank account.

well it's not a permanent job. basically as i said it's a working holiday visa. it's good for a year, so you go and find a job in one spot, stay there for a month or two (or longer or shorter if you want) then you can move on to whereever you want.

like if i started i'd probably get a job in dublin first for a couple of months, then move on to somewhere like galway or sligo for a month or two, then to derry for 3 months, cork for 2 months, etc.

and in the meantime, you're free to do whatever you want, travel around, go on trips, etc.

I made the decision today.

I'm going. I'm leaving at the beginning of May 2005 and staying until at least the end of August 2005 (although I can stay up to a year if I absolutely love it).

I'm going to start looking for a job on Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I'm so flippin' excited right now, because that lines right up with U2's European leg...Croke Park, here I come!!!
