Last weekend I was pretty busy mentally preparing to pack up all my stuff. Three or four different times I had mini-panic attacks. What do I pack? What do I throw away? Ugh! My goal is to only have two checked bags and two carry-ons, so I’ve made some visits to Goodwill.
I did actually pack my first box last Saturday, but I haven’t quite gotten myself to seal it yet. Something about sealing the box makes it seem too real. I also spent some time on Saturday looking for a storage unit. I was shocked that the price per month was so different at the various places I checked out. Anywhere from $60 to $110/month, all the same size. Luckily, I think I found the perfect place; hopefully they will have an opening in July!
Last week my recruiter told us that ADEC is planning to bring all new teachers to Abu Dhabi August 8-11. That goal means they hope to bring over 600 teachers into the emirate in a period of four days. Should be interesting.
