'A lot of prejudices about Rwanda need to be blown away... A creative attempt to solve a problem that affects countries around the world... to address something that is frankly evil... people taking people across the channel in unseaworthy vessels, and we've come up with a plan to fix it'.
The amount of contradictions and hypocrisy in this one statement is staggering.
Going to see RHCP with my pal, and we are struggling to work out travel logistics due to the tube strikes. Is the 'best' option to brace for the traffic and drive into Stratford? But then will there be parking available anywhere?
I would greatly appreciate some serious and useful advice please.
I am considering the possibility of finding a remotely-based job, as a means to create a better work-life balance.
Having never done this type of work, I've no idea what is out there or where to begin looking (beyond Googling 'online jobs').
I don't necessarily mind what the work is, as like I say it would be a means to facilitating an overall different lifestyle.
However, ideally I would like to be able to make use of the fact that I have a degree (in Physiotherapy, but I'd be more than happy to use the fact as a means to something completely unrelated), if there are any online jobs for which it is a requirement.
Online English teaching is probably one suggestion I will receive, but of course I want to find something consistent, reliable and secure.
I don't yet have enough experience in physiotherapy to do something like online disability claims assessment, for example.
If anyone could offer me advice I would be most grateful.
Aware me please. If one were to randomly travel around Europe for 90 days (more specifically, France), making contacts, seeking out English-speaking firms etc, what are the chances of being able to find long-term employment which would qualify for a work/permanent/whatever visa?
As far as I'm aware a company would have to justify paying for your visa; what if you were willing to pay yourself?
I'm reasonably well-educated (degree in Physiotherapy), and I also still might take a TEFL course.
I'm frankly tired and embarrassed now of living on this small little island and would like to roll the dice before I'm too old.
I could use my qualification and work experience eventually to look at places like Canada/NZ, if I stick it out for longer.
and it's positive (no surprises there). I'm 48 hours into symptoms now, and it's still like a moderate cold. Questions to anyone else who has had it lately: Were your symptoms similar? Did they get worse? How long did they last?
Or does that all just depend largely on what version you get?
PostOffice: Sorry we missed you today at 14:26 PM on 12/12. Please schedule a re-delivery for your parcel via: [link removed].
Despite not having ordered anything, it looked completely legit and I put in my card details, DOB, and name to pay a 're-delivery' fee. I'm not sure what I was thinking; perhaps that someone had sent me something, and that my phone number was in the delivery info somewhere.
I've since Googled this and have seen that it is indeed a scam.
I've transferred all the funds that were in this account into another account, so there's £0 in there if anyone gains access.
Is this enough to ensure I am 'safe' or is there anything else I can/should do?
I've tried calling the Halifax for their advice but they said I'll be waiting an hour or more (hence why I am posting about about on here in the meantime).
I feel very dumb, or like a 90-year old who fell for it a good'un.
I'm in desperate need of a few days away, somewhere cheap. Looking at Warsaw, as it looks nice and has a bit of Second World War history to it, which I'm interested in. I'd be going by myself, for a few days.
I've been to Krakow before, but would rather go somewhere new.
I posted on here a few weeks ago about my recent struggles with mental health, following the death of my Dad after a long illness, and then my relationship with my girlfriend breaking down.
The last few weeks in particular have been really dark and really difficult. My head has been a horrible place to be at times.
I was in tears this morning yet again, and my brother bought me a ticket to go with him to the match today (my first time at PR for over 3 years). I used to go regularly with my Dad/brother but had lost interest in recent years (no surprise).
Anyway, what I wanted to say was when Celina's goal went in it was the first time I had felt 'alive' and a genuine flood of positive emotions in the last couple of months, to the point where it made me well up a bit, just remembering that it is possible to feel good again.
