On my way!!...almost

Post by eric71 » Thu May 13, 2004 9:34 pm

After months of lurking and a few posts here at ., this long process of getting my ass to Finland is finally getting somewhere. I just got a call from the consulate in LA that my residency has been approved as of today. I've got a company in Espoo and two in Turku that would like to interview me. One in Turku sounds like they really want me - sometimes it's nice when Finns are extremely direct.

Now I've just got to sell everything I own and figure out how to tell my boss I'm leaving. Hopefully I'll be seeing all of you within the next few months. I know it's hard to know people based soley on message board postings, but I've seen so many supportive, funny postings and some of you really go out of your way for complete strangers crazy enough to want to come to Finland. I can't wait to meet all the regulars here. I feel like I've already got friends in Finland.

See you soon,
