I got an MBA in HR in a university in Texas and that granted me easy access to HR jobs in the USA and then in Dubai. I only ever wrote in my diary and sent long letters to my friends.
I came here thinking a HR job would fall in my lap as they usually did but that was not the case. I had to speak fluent Swedish and take a one year HR Labor Laws course in Swedish (help me Jesus).
I gave learning the language a serious shot for about a year or 2, but violently struggled against it. I was lazy and got easily bored and distracted. YAWN.........
