A Travellerspoint blog


I need to do something but I don't know what - ha maybe get a job. I decided today is my last day being a bum starting Monday I'm going hard. You may be thinking what about tomorrow? Could you not go hard then? Well I could BUT it's Eden's birthday this weekend so we're spending it at his dad's house in Williamstown, beach side, unfortunately not surf beach side but beach side nonetheless so I'm happy with that. Candice doesn't work tomorrow so we're heading down early, doing some grocery shopping, and going for a bike ride along the shore.

I drove for the first time on Monday, I was a little nervous about it but once I got in the drivers seat and on the road it went pretty well. The main problems were turning right - even with the arrow on the road showing me where I was supposed to go I almost pulled into the right hand lane not the left hand as I should do, and sitting on the right side of the car to drive. It's weird getting used to the fact that the bulk of the car is to the left of you, sometimes I would kind of forget and scrape the wheels on the curb before coming back to my senses and pulling away a bit. I checked for damage after it looked fine - no scratches.

I went into the City yesterday and there was a big parade on to welcome back the Olympic Athletes. Crowds of people lined the road and streamers were shooting in the air, music was blasting, and people were handing out these little flags for people to wave. So I got my little aussie flag and cheered them on with the rest of the masses before heading home. Where I did nothing. Actually I found this book in the cupboard about this chick who lost her job and is searching for one so I feel like I can kind of relate, it was beautiful out yesterday so I sat on the front sidewalk reading and soaking up the sun. It was quite nice.

Also Ang called yesterday and I'm going to work with her on Saturday the 26, I'm not entirely sure what the job is but I'll be working so I'm stoked. Also found out that Quicksilver in the City is hiring.
