SeaMooseyy Posted August 2, 2021 Share Posted August 2, 2021 August 1st, 2021 It's not easy leaving everything you know behind. Family, friends, loved ones. All of them are at home and I probably won't see them for a very very long time. The airport should have been a deterrent to drive me away from what I wanted most, a last minute opportunity to make me tuck my tail between my legs and give up. But I had been working for this for too long. For too many days I had sat up late at night, not able to sleep, thinking about leaving my home for someplace with better opportunity for me. I had only seen about Lucid City in telley commercials and pornos where the actresses would be shooting in a high-rise apartment building that overlooked the city. But the idea of another country itself, something other than a small town in Ireland that would breathe new meaning into my life. With pressure from the IRA for me to leave, lest my family be harmed, it's a good enough reason to go as any. But perhaps that was the push I needed to get myself going. Only being 26 years old and turning 27 soon, it was time I flew the coop and moved on. I just hope that the crowded airport trying to deter me from going away was a final test to prove to myself how brave and capable I am. Rather than a bad omen of what is to come for me. -S.
