So I didn't pull a sickie. I donned my fabulous reindeer skin tunic and gave an inspired speech on interpretation, greatly helped by a PP presentation I scraped together in 5 minutes straight before the meeting
I did feel good afterwards and I was even called visionary by a one of the owners
There were 4 meetings all in all yesterday and it made me feel sad for leaving. Strangely enough I enjoy travelling around talking to people and planning exhibits a lot more than actual interpretation. In that aspect I can really relate to you, Suze. I think I'll love doing something and then it turns out...not so much. I thought I'd love to be a teacher. Not for me! I imagined being an interpreter at a museum would be super. Not really, no.
Luckily for me I know for sure that I really like working behind the scenes in a museum. Researching, planning, documenting. So, this is what is giving me the guts to look for jobs abroad. I know I like doing it and I know I'm quite good at it.
Now it remains to see whether anyone can be bothered to let a Norwegian have a go
