The countdown to my sabbatical is officially on!
In twenty days, I will say goodbye (temporarily!) to the job I’ve held for the past eleven years.
And seven days after that, I will board a flight bound for San Fransisco, then a flight bound for Los Angeles (or is it vice-versa?) and then a flight bound for Taipei, Taiwan.
And just like that, I will begin the sabbatical that I’ve been planning for the past four years.
Planning for My Sabbatical
Four years ago, I registered in my employer’s deferred salary program. Since then, my employer has taken 20% off of my paycheque every month, setting it aside so that I could get “paid” during the eight months I will take off work.
