According to the count down widget on my phone, there is only 292 days left till the big move! Time has certainly flown by since the trip in November where we decided that we were going to move to Melbourne. I’ve slowed down my clearing of stuff, but have certainly accumulated quite a lot of things for the garage sale. Hoping to have one in the semester break of uni where Matt doesn’t have to work the weekend. All proceeds will be going to the “Move to Melbourne” fund!
A new found hobby of mine is to borrow books from the library & type up the recipes that I intend to cook, so that I don’t need to buy the entire book! Must say, I’ve accumulated quite a collection of recipes already. Now the thing is, I have got to try at least one recipe per week to make things interesting. Hoping to start that soon actually, hoping to make edible food!
Also on the topic of starting studies, I’ve worked out that I start on 26th August, not 27th May as I was previously advised by OUA. Heh. An extra 3 months of waiting around to start studying! Not too bad I guess, could be a lot worse. Gives me more time to cull my belongings for the move, really.
Been contemplating taking up jobs as a library assistant or library officer while waiting for the move. Only thing holding me back is the pay, really. As much as I have had it with my current job, it does pay well & it is pretty cruisy. The fact that I’ve got a mortgage is scaring the crap out of me if I left my current job. Such is life, pretty much. Only 292 days. I keep telling myself that.
