Don’t Panic

    0
So, it’s T-minus 24 hours and after a non-stop couple of days, an eerie calm has descended… either that or I’m still massively in denial. It turns out that the first and, so far, only thing which has made my imminent departure seem even remotely real was clearing out my office of nearly 6 years – as predicted, it delivered quite a haul of treasures...

Last Times

    0
I’m currently experiencing a lot of my ‘last times’ in England – it’s the ‘last time I’ll seethatperson’, the ‘last time I’ll visitthatplace’ or the ‘last time I’ll be doingthat’. Friends and family have been getting a bit tearful; sending me on my way with repetitions of the ‘stay safe’ mantra.Some of my friends have been more than tearful and said full on goodbyes which...

I am….me

    0
I actually quite like myself….are weallowedto say that? I mean, I haven’t always and at this point in time I’m carrying waaaay too much weight than I’m happy with (basically having too many amazing goodbye drinks and dinners with friends) but personality-wise, I’m pretty comfortable with who I am. If you had asked me if I liked myself six months ago, you would have received...

Prepping for a Year Abroad

    0
So this post should actually be called “NOT Prepping for a Year Abroad.” I’m four days from departure, haven’t started packing, don’t “technically” have a full-time remote job and am sitting on the couch contemplating how I’m going to make this year work and housing Modelos. Tomorrow is my last day at my current normal 9-5 job then I start freelancing, or trying to, full-time....

My Favorite Bit of Poetry

    0
Once I typed out my favorite poem for a dear friend as art. I used an old typewriter. In fact, it had a sheet in the wheel that was filled with cheers that I had typed out from middle school. Yes, I've always been this level of intense organization and categorization and documentation. I blame low-level anxiety and that my mother was a librarian. The...

The Traveller vs The RY’er

    0
The very premise of the Remote Year programme speaks to me in ways that travelling by myself, or with friendsnevercould. Actually, ‘never’ is a really long time….Let’s alter that sentence to say ‘doesn’t currently’.I thought that it was only recently that I had become comfortable enough in my own company - to be left alone and be happy. That was, until my parents reminded me...

It’s hitting me. I can feel it.

    0
Waves of emotions have started to come and go in these last few days as the preparation for my Remote Year intensifies. Everything around me looks and feels a little different, and I find myself pausing at random moments throughout the day to either pay closer attention to my surroundings or to just simply stop and appreciate what’s going on.  Suddenly, the everyday things in...

The ‘Digital Nomad’

    0
Over the last few years, I have been in a constant state of trying to describe to strangers, friends and family what it is that I actually do for a living…and, how I do it. My desk isn’t a permanent space in a nine-to-five office which my parents generation would understand. Instead, it is a constantly changing (& challenging) environment which ranges from a recce...

The Practicalities of Leaving

    0
I haven’t read or seen enough of the build up to leaving for a Remote Year (“RY”), so thought I would detail the practicalities of leaving my home and the preparations involved, including the cost of doing so, which was more than a little unexpected to me.Friends and family, you probably wont be that interested in this particular page, unless it's an unduly slow day at work, these...
