So my mom just approached me and asked, "Do you wanna go to Dubai?" I asked for what and she says "TO LIVE THERE!" and of course I start freaking out. I thought she meant on a cruise or something but turns out my Dad got a REALLY good job offer and will be leaving in 6 months. Since I'm about to graduate they are leaving the decision to me weather I wanna go or not. Everything wold be paid for and both of my parents would be making EXCELLENT money. I'm so stuck right now! Dubai is a beautiful place from what I've seen in pictures and I've always wanted to move out of the country but I feel like it's just too soon! Plus it will mess up my career! Has anyone been there? What's it like?

I have a bunch of friends out there, and they say the quality of life for the non super rich is pretty shitty. Also that the city is starting to turn for the downside again. Your choice but personally I wouldnt go. If you do, goodluck to ya and keep in touch.

All some very good points. But I'm pretty sure I had it set in stone what I wanted to happen with my life and now that this is happening I'm just having to go back and re-think it. Right when I had it all figured out. UGH!!!!


Idk things aren't lookin too great for me out here. There is one good reason for me to stay. But so many good reasons for me to go. Now I just need to figure out which is more important.

So tell me why I'm flipping through channels and there's a documentary on Dubai on TV? It's actually about the stuff my dad is supposed to help build....

Shea, you didn't know about the whole Air Force thing? I sware I told you the other day!

Right now it looks as if I'm staying. My mom is probably staying until my sister can get a kidney transplant also so I think that will give me a bit more time to think about it!

Oh yeah sorry forgot to mention, half of the people I know over there are there for military reasons right now so getting rpg'd (happened to a buddies hummer) kinda puts a downward spiral on things lol.
