2021 has started! I was going to move to Dubai and live in Dubai all 2021, but by December 2020 I did not have enough money to:
- Pay one year’s rent in an apartment in Dubai and wider Middle East;
- Pay for visas, air fare, and bills; AND
- Live overseas self funded for the year.
I decided to stay here in Queensland till the end of march March / April only and then move abroad. Especially given non essential travel is not really permitted due to the Covid-19. Then in March I will assess what my finances are like and then move abroad. I wanted to move to a better apartment here first until I move overseas, so I upgraded my room. I am now living in a slightly bigger studio with air con and a balcony on the top floor. I sold my car and I am just going to live in this new unit until I leave and go abroad.
I have also retired. I decided in 2020 to just give up on trying to have my career and aim to go and enjoy myself instead. So, what do I mean by retired? Well I am not planning on ever working or aiming to work in any leadership positions for ports, shipping companies or even work in other industries such as records or libraries. I decided to do what retirees do and work on just my hobbies! I pray I get to make money from my hobbies so I can be fully self funded throughout my retirement. I am also going to get married abroad! My aim is to move to Dubai, travel, get married and be fully settled and living abroad permanently.
What are my hobbies for 2021:
- Work on my website Blabzone – a media news site
- Continue with my maritime business and do work as work is needed only. Clients can contact me and request I do any project work for their companies
- Continue with my independent history research especially my big project called the Moses exodus theories
- Continue with my big dreams to run my own charities (that is a longer term goal)
- Write my books both fiction and non fiction
- Continue with my principality and actually becoming a princess
I am also still considering doing further university study in retirement mode and later on. I still want to finish a PHD or two. One in maritime research innovations. I also want to do further studies in history research. I already have five university qualifications anyway. I will see if I do any more study later on! At the moment I am doing a single unit in introductory Arabic and creative writing graduate classes. I want to improve my full writing opportunities and learn languages.
Also, I am still hoping to get married this year! I am 37 and getting really old now. I am going to continue with my marriage and princess plans anyway! I will see.
These are my plans for 2021. To continue with my hobbies, move abroad, get married, be the princess, and be happy! If people do not like those plans too bad! This is my life, my future, and they are MY dreams!
