DOJ: in 15 days


Leap year…it makes me a day closer to my dream…my DOJ is on the 14thΒ ofΒ March.

I moved out of my apartment, back to my parents’ house, packed my boxes….kinda…and now I’m trying to organize myself and prepare for the big day…right now I’m still at work (let’s say I’m using my coffee-break time to write this post πŸ™‚Β  ) It will be my last day tomorrow, with champagne and cakes, to celebrate that I’m leaving πŸ™‚Β Few will sure celebrate that I’m out of here, but most people will miss me, which is a good thing. I actually feel both right now…I’m also glad to step out the door tomorrow and not hae to look back…things are getting a bit wild these days…plus I’m not the kind of person who loves to sit behind a desk all day from 7am to 4pm. But from another point of view I will definitely miss this place, with all the kind-hearted colleagues I got to know here, and I’m glad I can call a few of them my friends…

So it’s a final countdown; in the middle of March I’ll be in the sandpit, hopefully enjoying my new apartment, and spend fun time with my friends I got to know on the FI, or on CC portals πŸ™‚

Also planning to take my running shoes and clothes, so that after he training I can conquer the world (or at least Emirates destinations) in my Asics and a shirt that says “BIG around the world” So watch for me whether in London or Sydney, Sao Paolo or Boston πŸ™‚

Now back to work…




“This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!”

Today is a tough one…I’m at work, substituting for one of my receptionists…poor guy broke a leg…noone wished him good luck though…
But shhh….it happens 😦

Today is a tough one…I had to wake up at 6 in the morning…which I usually do, but being at work now is a torture…

Today is a tough one…I met a friend and her friends, and maaaan…did we have fun πŸ™‚ we went to major awesome places in Budapest and saw the Monday night face of it…had a few drinks…and then a few more…

My friend I met…let’s call her S.T.
Last year we went to an interview together…be both dropped out at the very first roud to our biggest surprise … and to forget this shock we went to have a drink and some good food in the surprisingly developing city of Bucharest. Our frienship started there at Blanco Grill & More, and eversince we chat and share our crazyness with one another. We also found some friends in common, and we are in a strange way from few directions connected πŸ™‚ Eh, this world is so small!

So today is tough, because yesterday turned out to be longer than I planned, but so much better,too πŸ™‚

Back to work now…38 days to go…you’ll hear from me until then πŸ™‚

…the Q was: ” if DOJ = x days, what is x? “


So it’s the final countdown…before 13th January I counted the days that passed after my final interview. But now it’s the other way around, I’m counting the days to my DOJ, the day I get on that plane and set my feet on desert ground…in the city of gold as they say…the main city of the Dubai emirate in the United Arab Emirates; the magical city of Dubai (Ψ―Ψ¨ΩŠΩ‘β€Ž).

I can’t be more excited to meet people I got to know over these weeks of endless waiting for our GCs, and see a brand new place and culture I never experienced before. We had ups and downs, impatient waiting hours, some rejections too, but now we are in, we made it to live our dream and work as cabin crew to Emirates.

Just to give you an idea of the whole thing:
Emirates is a Dubai-based airline, established in 1985. It’s the largest in the Middle-East, that is among the very best in the world! Emirates is also said to be an extremely strong brand, a leader in aviation industry. Nothing proves this better than their sponsorship to the English Premier League football team, Arsenal. And that’s just one example.

And I could go on talking about all this, but I believe I’ll have enough time to share my experiences from day 1 in Dubai…plus, I have a lot of things to do in those 42 days (packing my stuff & life in 50 kgs, survive busy-crazy days at work, ace or at least pass my last comprehensive maths exam tomorrow, move out of my apartment, and meet all my friends & family as many times as possible before I leave)

Until then, join me on my journey from my final interview, painful waiting process, moving to Dubai, induction week, through SEP and other trainings, to flying all around the globe, and other adventures πŸ™‚

See you soon πŸ™‚

Well, I will keep it short for now, but things are starting to speed up from this week.
On Friday several people from the FB site were starting to receive their GCs…I was working, in the afternoon getting ready for my exams, and looking at my phone every second of the whole day, hoping I would be next…well, I’ve been waiting and waiting, but it didn’t come…

It was pretty much the same ritual on Sunday as well, when I was supposed to go over to my parents’ house for lunch…I was freaked out, because there is no or hardly any phone signal, so I took my time and hoped that I would get it before I leave….well, great expectations again…but NO…

Jut as I pulled over and found a parking place my phone rang, it even showed the three letters from where the call came in…UAE…wwwoooowww…I was so excited…but then came the tough part…as signal is hardly any at my parents’ place (even on the street), I had to push my ears into my phone and listen carefully…what I heard of the whole thing is something like this:
Hello my name is…bbbzzz…cogratulate you…bbzzz…Emirates…bbzzz…14th of March…bbbzzz…on the new portal…bzzzz…your code and….if any…bbzzzz….call this number…bbzzz….an e-mail…bbzzzz…is everything alright?
Well, I told her I could hardly hear a thing, but will it all be in the e-mail I receive? She assured me it will. We wished each other a nice day, and said bye…so from then on my day was a lot more than nice…it was wonderful…awesome…great…and life-changing…

So I sat in my car for a while, celebrated myself and patting my own shoulder…I was happy, proud, shocked and calm at the same time…

Happy? I don’t have to explain…

Proud? I will soon be celebrating my thirteenth 18th birthday πŸ™‚ so I thought I might be “old” for this position, they won’t even select me…but here I am…

Shocked? Totally…I only have 61 days to go…sounds a lot of course, but days pass by so fast…I need to say good-bye to my VIP, family, friends, buddies, places I visited so often, things I got used to, that are obvious to be present…basically my whole life in Hungary…even if for a while, but it’s a big step I chose to take…

Calm? Of course…why worry? I got what I dreamed of (or got the ticket to my dream), and I can start the final countdown πŸ™‚ I’ll blink…and baaammm…it’s here…

It is actually 59 days to my DOJ….so exciting πŸ™‚

For YOU, readig my blog here…I wish you the happiness that I’m going through right now! Don’t forget to live a life YOU wish to live…and don’t ever let go of your dreams…Even if you think it is late, it’s worth trying…I did, and didn’t regret πŸ™‚

Have a nice day everyone!!!




Hoooraaay!!! πŸ™‚

I’ve been having long days and nights since the beginning of december…long days, for I work quite a lot, we have so many events to organize and do catering for, and nights, because it is the time to study for exams…or the time to use my earplugs against that lovely neighbor, who just loves to listen to music from 1am…how nice is that…

So until yesterday afternoon I’ve been having tough days…not to mention, I was so eager to know about any news concerning my application and things to come after my 2nd On Hold message πŸ™‚ Yesterday morning I had an exam, and passed…I was really stressed out, but I made it, and was so releived afterwards…

So with curiosity about my application and relief after my exam, I went home to have a rest (mission simply impossible, since I was sooo hyper, and happy)

So for that night we had a theatre play to go to…I got it as a Christmas gift from someone, who plays quite an important roleΒ in my crazyΒ little lifeΒ πŸ™‚ He is also a big supporter of my dreams, and knows how much it means to me that I actually made it…so it seems…since I still haven’t received my GC…

So we went to this lovely play, which is called Boeing,Β Boeing…of course it is about a guy and 3 stewardesses…a funny little play πŸ™‚ The tickets he handed over to me at ChristmasΒ (for the play) had the Emirates logo on them, of course not the original tickets, but he made them especially for me…how sweet is that πŸ™‚


So….after this lovely night-out and dinner afterwards,Β I finally managedΒ getΒ someΒ sleep as well, until the next morning, when I had to be at work by 7…as I always do. So I wasn’t too fresh, but oh well…then as I got to my workplace, had my coffee, updates from what I missed from the day of my exam, I opened my Emirates site as usual…and there it was…in the most beautiful red letters and fonts and everything…my YWBC!!! πŸ™‚

I was head over heels…I just couldn’t believe it! So I also checked the facebook site, where so many people wrote that they already received it yesterady, and even this very day…and some of them even started receiving their GC-s πŸ™‚ there are few of them leaving in February already, and many of them are scheduled for March…I still haven’t received my GC though, but what am I thinking…one step at a time…I’m happy enough for my YWBC today πŸ™‚

So after all the tough days until yesterday afternoon, my days are magical now!!! And although some people say that the week is over and there will be a national holiday on Sunday (so HR might not be working), but I’m still hoping for a GC soon, since GC-s might come any day πŸ™‚

All my fingers crossed for all of you, who are in the same boat…even those of you who are waiting for their On Hold messages…and you lucky ones who turned AIP…and you, who had their FIs, or ODs, or are planning to be part of this dream…believe me, it is wonderful! I’m not even there yet, but I just can’t say how happy I am right now….my life is changing, my dream is becoming my life, little by little, but it’s happening!!!

TOMORROW, here i come!!! πŸ˜‰

…on my way…

...on my way...

It’s been 100 days since my Final Interview with Emirates, and who knows how long the road ahead of me will be. There are rumours going on about closed gates (that I know is true), hiring freeze and all sorts of guessings, but all I can do is wait…Waiting is really tough, when it’s for your dream, when it’s something you wished for for so long…
But still, I consider myself lucky, that I have a loving family, friends and important people in my life around me, with whom I can spend this precious time…who make me happy…I have a job I actually like and it keeps me busy, while I wait…I have running, which keeps me busy and healthy at the same time…and these things are definitely the most important that I’ll miss…the daily routine, the places I know and go to regularly, and the family and friends I can meet almost any time, when I wish to…This will change however when I make my big move to Dubai…I will have trainings and busy flights, but loads of fun and wonderful new places to visit, and a lot to learn from life’s lessons. Somehow I feel that I need to LIVE this life, I need to observe and learn to make me a better person, and to fulfill my own dream. But until then I am learning to be patient, which I know will be worth it πŸ™‚
And I know there are so many others waiting ‘with’ me at the same time…so many people ‘On hold’ or ‘YWBC’…but I know we’ll make it!
We won’t dream our lives, but live our dreams!

…please wait…a little bit more…

...please wait...a little bit more...

It’s been silent last week…no news from Emirates lately…nobody received any on holds, rejections or GCs…However, this week some people are receiving successful “on hold” e-mails again…I got to know this from our little group where we share thoughts and happenings concerning our Emirates application and statuses. These successful OH e-mails said these people should wait until further notice, because training dates are full until 30th of January…well, it seems like we (me and people who received their OH with me) won’t start before February, because our e-mails said training dates are full until 29th December. So if they would have filled this January training month with us, I guess we would have received our GC by now…
(I’m just hoping that I’m very wrong about this)
