There’s lots of things to sort out before fleeing the country and one such thing is phones, contracts and all things communication related.
Somewhat conveniently my 18-month contract with O2 ended on Sunday and in the name of making my life simpler over the next few months, and in preparation for leaving, I’ve now changed onto one of their Simplicity plans – one of those month-by-month deals. I guess I could have changed provider or found a better prepaid (pay-as-you-go) deal but since I could do the whole changeover on the internet in the space of an hour I went with the easy solution.
When I leave…well I haven’t really thought about that. It all depends on where I go…everything depends on where I go and since that’s very much an unknown at this point, it’s a little hard to plan for.
It’s just the beginning . . . I really need to get onto VSO and find out what’s happening but for now I am, very slowly, getting my life in order for leaving the country. When will it feel real? Right now I’m doing these things on autopilot but with almost no real sense that this is happening. Maybe getting a placement will help?!
