    "Partially accepted"? Perhaps that works out OK - at least giving you some steady income as you build things!
    Yeah, I am half arsing it a bit. Not sure if that is wise or not.

    It means I still get some income, but I am losing the main benefit of contracting which is the freedom. (Everyone I have spoken to about contracting says to focus on the money is a big mistake, it is the control over your own life that is important.)

    Working every monday and tuesday means I miss out on the "work 3 months hard, then take a month off" dream.

    @RyanDS I went freelance after job shenanigans and the independence it provides is great. I am in a fortunate position where I am not the main bread winner but if that changes I could scale it up.

    The absolute best thing is the freedom of what work I do and working as much or as little as life dictates. I recently told one of my clients I would no longer do certain elements I had ended up doing due to convenience for them and it is great to be able to have that much control.

    Another good element is not having to put up with being thrust together with vacuous idiots.

    One recommendation is to start a savings account to siphon off money for rainy days and your tax bill. Start early on that and it makes the headache of tax much more manageable.

    Yes Andorra, I had to look where it actually was as I have heard of it but not it's location. I'll be a teacher/teacher coordinator in a private academy.

    Cheers fellow forum members

    @Addyb_V2

    Start on 1 September for orientation week. I would have started earlier but I have a summer school job taking French kids around the Uk for about three weeks of July then teaching them in England for all of August I'll be ending one job and starting another with about a three day gap. So now I've got to start looking into packing shit up, moving out, looking for a place to live in Andorra and leaving stuff at the mother's residence.

    Please don't go. I'm afraid our long distance broship over the internet won't be able to cope.

    I know you're trying to act cool but it's ok to cry.

    I'll still be on the forum, can't let Randolph get too comfortable.

    Congratulations enjoy.

    Congrats Jambo, all I know about Andorra is itís perpetually snowing, men are allowed, on request, to shit in a policemanís helmet and eating is always done with one chopstick, except for soup when a fork is substituted.
    Something like that anyway, might be confusing it with Hull.

    Have fun!
