The worst part and the best part about being here are the people that I meet. The great part is meeting so many people from so many places and forging bonds and friendships. The down part is that nobody is a long termer because everyone moves on or goes to a different place. It is the nature of the beast in a situation like this. Having said that, I am now the one who is moving on. As of Saturday, I will officially be living in Bondi. Far away from the suburbs of my current Beecroft home. I have to admit that it feels a bit weird. I have become used to my abnormally long train ride to anywhere and especially to the family that lives here. They have made Aussie life a complete breeze when it comes to certain worries and I appreciate it. I will definitely keep in touch with them and hopefully visit for dinner often. Real often! With my new job and the back and forth of moving, I have been really spread thin lately. I feel chaotic inside and I don't like it. So, I will be happy to settle in to the new place and just breathe for a minute. Seems like everything and nothing hit me all at once. Story of my life, I guess. It is so funny how being here, away from anything that is normal, just strips you down. Nothing is familiar, nothing is assured, everything is up in the air at any moment. This is a huge test in perseverance and want. Sometimes, I will think about Atlanta and how every moment of my day was timed to the minute and I was miserable and then now, I wish I had a little more structure. I guess it is all about the balance. I'm not complaining though. I'm just saying how it feels.
