 Well ive been sat here the last few days trying to feel comfortable with the the fact im no longer employed. Its the first time since i left school im not in work and it doesn't feel natural. When i walk around town at 1 in the afternoon and look around i feel slightly privileged in the fact im one a few at this point in time. Im not burdened with stresses of rushing around during my lunch break trying to cram all my chores into an hour, nor am i at work trying to get through the day, dealing with customers and the pressures a work place gives. No, im walking around with nothing but time and i feel my strides become closer as i walk and my pace slow sown and this feeling of de-pressurisation. Im, beginning to pull away from the 9-5 rat race slow down and today at least i like it.

 I am finding myself constantly looking up the TEFL course im going to take in Cambodia though. Probably because im trying to reassure my self that money isn't going to be an issue and everything is going to be ok. It does excite me :-). Once the course is complete and ive done 7 weeks practical training in a school i can then get a job earning a decent wage especially in comparison to the cost of living in England and with the course i have in mind i should have the tools to be able to teach English competently and give something back to the pupils in countries im able to teach in. The one thing i want to get across is that im not teaching to just pay for my extended stay in Asia, i actually want to give something back and show that we care. Im also excited to see what they teach me.

 But as of last Friday im another step closer to travelling. And the first of many lessons have been learned. I was sad to say goodbye to my friends at Mclaren and there were a lot. They really did  make my life bearable and im going to miss the banter and everyday interactions that i really enjoyed. im going to miss them. Im proud of the fact i built the Mclaren P1 and i know they are to and i couldn't of asked for a better bunch of guys and girls (Jay) to of worked with. Thank you all 

 Then i was warned that i need to get used to goodbyes because on the backpacking routes you will become friends with people, spend a solid 2 weeks going of on adventures and partying and then having to go on separate paths and most likely never been seen again. This is something me and Abi will have to deal with and knowing that going into it should probably help, hopefully. 

Well thanks for reading and ill be back soon.

Matt
