VSO
Well, I put in an application to the VSO last week. They've come back to me, and have me off to an 'assessment day'. That'll be on Jan 31st.

Down in London, 9 in the morning.

On the plus side though, they do cover expenses. I just have to decide whether I feel like staying overnight, or attempting to make the journey in the morning.

Apparantly it's a full 'assessment day', but I'm not entirely sure what's involved. *shrug*. Whatever, I remain confident that I can get past that.

The difficult part will be actually making the decision whether to accept a placement or not. 2 years is a long time, even if I do arrange a sabbatical with my employer. Time well spent, certainly. Relatively better/worse than not doing it? Harder to say.

I know its a hard decision but I think if you do do it you'll be really pleased.

As to passing the assesment, I guess you've read up on the types of projects they do how you think you'll fell when seeing whatever for real and all that emotional stuff as I know thats been a failing point for some people.

Unfortunatly only people I know who've done things like this are off doing more so can't ask them things.

Go for it, man.

There may well never be another time in your life when you're free to do so.
