Good afternoon world! It is 14.43 as I type my first words into this blank page and I do it feeling pretty damn good.
You know that feeling when you’re working on a Friday? It’s the same work, it just feels better knowing the weekend is just around the corner. That’s how I feel today knowing that I have ten days left of my 88 days of farmwork.
Whilst on the topic of feeling free, the below and featured image was taken from #justaviation on Instagram of a wheelchair user refusing to give in to physical limitations. I found it not too long ago and found it to be both motivating and fitting for my post.
I will no longer be stuck in this hostel that I rely on for work, and no longer stuck in this small town that I cannot leave for more than a day or two if I expect to keep my bed, my job and my second-year visa hopes alive. Not that I hate this place, in fact I have loved the experience and I know I will remember it for a long time. I have made great friends that I will see again outside of Ayr, whether in Australia or the UK. I have learned a lot and gained many valuable experiences. I am sure throughout my travels this will be one of the most memorable experiences.
Now, my ten days of work might not be within the next ten days. It depends on how many days off I have inbetween. It could take up to two weeks at this current rate- maybe less, maybe more. Considering I have been here since March, I am not complaining about it taking slightly longer!!
I’m going to spend my last ten days highlighting the best (and worst) of my experiences here and I do hope you enjoy them.
See you all in the comments, and I will have a new blog post for you tomorrow.
