When I quit my full time awesome job in an IT company to move cities, I wanted to find that exact same kind of job where I was moving.

Hi. My name is Shafaq T. and I have opinions about everything. I just can’t keep them to myself which is why I created yet another blog to express my opinions about things in life in the most reasonable manner (unreasonable being my hate-speech on facebook and in front of my husband).
