Applied for an Associate Professor role in physics education in Brunei, as discussed here earlier. Got short-listed for it, and should have been flying out tomorrow for the interview.
But our level of debt has meant I had to withdraw my application. We need both of us working, and there’s no guarantee Suzie would get a job, or even a visa allowing her to work, in Brunei. Without that, it’s just not tenable to go.
If we’d made smarter financial decisions and not lived beyond our means in the past, we’d have a lot more freedom now.
Hope that’s helpful for others – for us, we need to slowly dig ourselves out.
