moving back to my moms house at the age of 22

by - Monday, May 15, 2017

Hi there! This weekend I am moving back to my moms house at the age of 22.. Well maybe that it not quite true.. Let me explain. Yes, I am moving back there but not this exact weekend. Next week officially. But this weekend we are already moving my stuff from my own room in Amsterdam to my moms house so we don't have to do that next week!

First of all, let me explain why I am moving to my moms house. As I am saying in this video/vlog not many people are moving back to their moms house. To be honest, for me it feels weird too ( because also for other reasons). For the last 2,5 years I have been living in Amsterdam on my own. But unfortunately my work did go together with my room so when I leave my work I have to leave my room too. I am not leaving work because I hate it, I love my work ( I worked as a nanny ) and I had a lot of fun with it, but it was time for me to go because their child is going to kinder garden herself so I had to do something else.

But don't worry, I have a plan. I am not moving back to my moms house because I don't have something else to go to. That is maybe half true, but I am staying there for maximum three months. I am going tell you why. Many years I have been saying to myself I always -ALWAYS- wanted to live in America. I have never been there before and I don't exactly know why, but I love America. You can say that it is a dream of me to go there and experience the American culture.

Now I believe that everything happens for a reason. So when I looked on the internet for a job 2,5 years ago and then found this nanny job in Amsterdam, The Netherlands I wasn't sure where I would end up after. Am I going to do this nanny job my whole life? That was not really the plan, I was planning on staying one year to think about my next step. And although I never thought I would be a nanny and loving that job but because of that job I came to my next step... Being an Au Pair In America.

So that is what I am going to do, hopefully in August. Maybe sooner, maybe later. Will see. But for now I am moving back to my moms house and getting my stuff from Amsterdam, The Netherlands to as small city in The Netherlands called Harderwijk.
