Brexit – what does it mean for me!?

Leave a comment Standard

Some of you may or may not know that I am currently in the UK and soon the Uk will be leaving the European Union (EU). This process is called Brexit. I am going, to be honest with you all; I voted to Remain in the EU – however; the rest of my Country disagreed. I knew that in the future, Visas would be needed for me to travel (and work) within the EU. I know that it will not happen straight away but it WILL happen!

I know that I already have to have Visas for Asia and the Americas – I am not bothered about that – but to go and work in Spain; for example, I will need to apply for a Visa!

Are you worried about what is going to happen?

This is the reason why I have not been teaching or posting about teaching for a while as I know that Visas cost money. I have been looking at getting another Online Teaching job, but I need faster internet – which I currently do not have! Any ideas on what I can do to increase the speed of my internet?

Voting Day…

Standard

Today here in the UK we are voting; voting for our next MEP! MEP?! Member of European Parliment. A part of me is thinking why should I vote as I could be abroad teaching soon as I am currently unsure about is happening with my job. Cuts, merges and job losses are on the horizon – it will give me a kick up the backside to get moving! So, should I vote or not?

I have decided that I will vote as our candidates seem rather interesting; I always wonder how the voting is carried out and how the votes are all counted. I always vote what my heart states when I arrive at the Polling Station. This year I found it hard; as the ballot form was over A4 size; it was massive! In theory; we are not supposed to state who we voted for; but I voted for a ‘Party’ that I have never voted for before. There are some parties I disagree with their views. It is scary to think that there may be a high percentage of British voters who will votes for these disagreeable parties.

Rock, Paper, Scissors (and other variants) should solve the countries problems; what do you think?

I do not think that I will be happy with whichever party wins a place in the European Parliament; just hope that it will make my (and the others around me) life better. Fingers crossed!!
