Hectic Is My Middle Name

Shopping to do, orientations to give, projects to plan, emails to answer – and all of it needs to be done ten minutes ago. This is why I love being on project. This is when I work best. This is where I am useful.

Preparations for the satellite project are ramping up so I’ve been buying supplies, planning work schedules and coordinating the volunteers who are hoping to go. Tomorrow ten of us will pack our bags and head north, fingers crossed the portaloo shows up before we do! UPDATE: it didn’t. We spent 24+ hours crossing our legs and hurrying up the road to the local supermarket.


About Jess UK

Fell in love with the crazy, inspiring, all-or-nothing world of disaster response and the wonderfully ridiculous, hard-working people who are drawn to it. Currently working in the Philippines as part of the recovery efforts after Typhoon Washi/Sendong! Want to know more? Check out disasterchasers.wordpress.com.
