APRIL 24TH GENERAL GATHERING – MOVING HOME
10am – 12pm
For some expats, this summer will mark another milestone – it is time to return home and leave your life you’ve come to know in Beijing. Let us reminisce, remember when we told our friends and family we would be moving to China, they would ask us the dreaded question, “what will you do to keep yourself busy’? Most of us had preconceived notions of what we would find to fill our days with, keep our children busy outside of school, and maybe the fantastic trips to be had being based from Beijing. But when we arrived, some may have found that the ideas we had imagined did not come to fruition once we arrived and got settled into our “actual” day to day life.
Present day – you know that you will be returning home soon, and once again, you may have preconceived ideas of what you will do once home and settled. But, there is so much to do prior to leaving in such a short time frame, i.e., arranging the movers, anything regarding the children, making sure you get to ALL your favorite restaurants for one last meal there, and maybe trying to get a last trip in with the family, and let us not forget about our other family member – our beloved pet! Let’s face it, 2 months seems so far away, but with everything going on, time is against us, and before we know it, our departure date is here, and life as we know it is about to change once again!
INN’s General Gathering on the 24th is all about moving home. Our guest speakers on hand will be there to help assist with any questions you may have. For some of us, our spouses company may cover most of the essentials of the move and so on, but there are always those little things that pop up which requires us to handle ourselves. Others may have to handle everything pertinent for the move themselves. Even if you have everything all under control, please feel free to join us that morning to possibly help ease your mind, maybe enjoy a few laughs along the way, and just enjoy the morning with friends! Maybe your time here in Beijing isn’t up just yet; please still join us, as maybe you will hear something pertinent for when it is your time to go. Even if you just want to get out of the house for the morning, come join INN.
As always, anyone that holds a Foreign Passport is welcome to enjoy our General Gatherings. We certainly hope to see you there!
