Now I know I have been adding ‘ My Australian Journey’ posts every day and will continue to do until I leave, however I received this in an email recently.
It really is hitting home now that I am only here for a few more days, and that I should probably get my sh*t together. But saying that I don’t have much to do. I keep being asked ‘Are you ready? Have you packed?’ and as a backpacker a lot of my things were never unpacked! Certainly a benefit to this style of travel.
The hostel I am in is currently having lots of renovations, and everything around me is being carried somewhere. The tables, the chairs, and I can see them currently eyeing me up wanting to take the chair I am sitting on too. This is further getting me into the mindset of moving out. I will give it to them as I am about to shoot out the door anyway to have leaving drinks with work friends. But I wanted to post again today to you all instead of leaving this day blank. It feels strange if I don’t post once a day.
But I like that, because it keeps me posting. And I have been lucky to have so much to post about, I won’t always be travelling and finding content to write about is sometimes hard. And with that in mind I do have a little dilemma.
I had an interview for a job near London Bridge at midnight (it is 4.30pm now) that I think it wen’t pretty well. However this would require a start date pretty much straight away when I land in London. Great as I will be getting paid straight away, bad that I will be straight back into full time work after a long haul flight when I could take a couple weeks off. Shortly after the interview I Skyped with my mum that reminded me that it would be better to maybe take a couple weeks out. I have a funeral that I need to attend at the beginning of September and of course my Muse gig in Berlin on the 10th September.
So maybe it would make much more sense to take a couple weeks rest and head back up north. This would also help me look for more jobs and maybe one that is better for me. Not to mention I will have so much time to plan posts!
Even as I type this the second option is sounding more desirable. I might not even get this job and if I don’t, I will certainly travel back up north. However if I am successful I may still tell them that this is what I am going to do instead. It is hard to plan life and sadly my step-gran passed away the other day. She was the last of my grandparents and it is sad to know she is no longer with us. So taking a break to attend the funeral and spend the precious time seeing my family and friends actually sounds like a no brainer.
So I guess I will upload my first UK blog posts from the north east of England, a beautiful part of the world so I don’t mind at all. And now I need to run out the door to have my leaving drinks.
Just a little life update, and I will see you all soon!
