An update

Time seems to be moving very slowly for me right now. Sleeping and eating have been quite erratic though if you average everything I guess you could they are normal. For instance, I’ll sleep 12 hours one night and four the next. I have sold a few things but I have come to the conclusion that I will stop trying to sell things for the time being that will make life too inconvenient not having (eg. fridge). I am also, at this point, only willing to sell my car for near the asking price. It really does not seems worth the inconvenience of not having a car or the cost of renting one, if I don’t get a fair price for my car. In the end I know that I may have to take less than the car is worth but at least I’ll get it use it for a while longer.

I can stay in my apartment until November 5. I have come up with a rough plan for travelling. I have figured out that it will quite a bit cheaper for me to use miles to fly there and then fly to Abu Dhabi and then fly home. I can also store a suitcase here and save the cost of shipping things home this way. So, I’ll fly to Bangkok on November 5 and then travel over to Cambodia. I’ll then go back to Thailand (maybe fly?) and travel through to Malaysia. I might go over to the Borneo part of Malaysia or see some of Indonesia. In any case, I’ll fly from Singapore to Abu Dhabi on January 3. I’ll fly home from here on January 5 or 6. I haven’t book that flight yet. I saw a really good price of a flight but before I booked it is went up a lot. Now I’m trying to see if prices go down at all or if I should take a flight with 2 stops as they are much cheaper. In any case, I plan to book a flight in the next few days so I won’t have that to worry about.

  1. Am thinking of you. I know when I was laid off that my sleep got really thrown off because of the emotional shock. I hope you can get this sleep rythem back though as it will help you cope and handle things as well as possible. Sounds like some reasonable ideas and I do hope you get near the asking price for the car… saving $ on airfare seems like a good idea too; I hope it all works out for the best for you!

  2. Amanda, I’m sure some of the new teachers working with ADEC may be willing to work with you on purchasing your furnishings (fridge, etc) and perhaps car when you’re ready to go.

    I hope that’s the right link.

    Good luck! And your travel itinerary sounds fantastic.
