I have been home now for about 2 months now. Not that I'm counting or anything, but the time keeps going by and I've realized that there are a vast number of people I have yet to make the effort to see. I always say there is no one here to hang out with, but there is-- they are around, but I don't seem to be. It's very strange and it's something I'm going to make a huge effort to change.
I spent the last 4 years basically attached to some of the most wonderful people I have ever met at school. I met the majority of them during the first few days to the first few months and we have been friends ever since. I can't even imagine how my university experience would have been without them. All of them; in their different groups and their different places. People came and people went, but the core stayed friends and that couldn't have made me happier.
I think about this as I sit on my bed typing. I admittedly wanted to be done school. There were so many times where I was "done" with the city I was living in and the fact there didn't seem to be an escape dove me insane, at times. Now that I'm actually done. I'm happy to move on, but sad to leave the people... I'm a little sad to leave the city (but don't tell anyone that!)
So, I now begin the count down to Australia. 5 1/2 months. It seems so far away, but if the last 4 years means anything, it will fly by. I'm looking forward to it. New places, new faces, the beach (!!!!), and I am actually excited to go back to school. I'm sort of lost without it and I'm not sure this whole "working" thing is really for me... I just have to make it to December and I'm made in the hot Australian sun. Oh la la. I've been looking into Master's programs over there too... I might be in school forever at this rate!
I get to get a new place, find new restraunts (I wonder if there will be a good Southern style place for me?), new pubs, new bars, new people... it's a very exciting. In the mean time I have to shell out thousands to my Uni of choice, so that means lots of 40 hours weeks and not much time off-- but thats ok!! I'm far too excited!
Ok, keeping with shoes and clothes, I bought the cutest shoes the other day "shelley London" shoes, $10 a pair on HUGE sale, so naturally I bought 4. I have no place for them and my poor suitcase is not going to be able to handle all of it... but I couldn't pass them up. As for money, I need to lose my debit/ credit cards so as to not buy anything else. I don't need anything (except that MacBook that I'm going to buy....) hahaha opps. Oh well! Must start saving... I use to be so good at it!!
I must get going,
Yours in many many shoes,
