I know I know I know I know I know!!!!!
My Apologies for lagging on a new post for way too long now. Life has been… well, life! Do not worry, you haven’t missed out on much. My weekly 20 page paper writing obligation has drained me of all writing life. Lucky for us, that raisin ruining my blog is now over! My class starting next week is managerial accounting (puke) which will mean I will HAVE to blog to keep sane, so I think we are back in the clear 🙂 As of now, being so behind, I have no idea where to begin so ll just start it with a picture of myself winning a 140 bucks on slots..cause that how I roll :).
TIME TO TEMP!
Well Holy freaking Cow!! It only took 2 months but I finally got a call from the temp agency for some work! With my money dwindling as fast as my self-worth was without working, and with only 400 dollars left in my bank account all I have to say is Hallelujah! It has been almost 4 months since I have last stepped into a working environment, and man ohhhhh man did the nerves start partying around my head. I just kept thinking..
Crap! What if I miss my buses? Or answer the phone like a weirdo? Or my boss is some random guy from Tinder?
I could only hope..
PLEASE don’t let me do anything retarded
PLEASE don’t let there be bitchy Sydney girls harassing me in the office
PLEASE do let there be an unlimited supply of Tim Tams and Coffee!:)
The State of Origin
TINDER…SOOO… IS…THIS .. DATING?
With apps like Tinder, dating has become so causal it’s like you never even know if you are on a date.. Or the persons intentions.. Or even YOUR OWN intentions. Is this lunch just lunch? Friends? Drinks? More? Trying to get in my pants? Taking me to a nice dinner? Really trying to get into my pants? I never know.. Ever! Especially since I am using the site for both friends and dating, I feel like guys are probably just as clueless as me. Nothing really ever makes sense…whatever I am doing, I am all over the place doing, and the only way to describe it, of course, is by saying it’s a HOT MESS.
THE M.I.A MONTH WRAP UP
I am almost at the 3-month mark now!!! No, not with an Aussie baby – but with living here in Sydney and my life is completely settled in, FINALLY.
Income — CHECK (at least for now). I have worked at this company for two weeks now, and yes, I have now made the buses my bitch 🙂 I am still going bonkers with the boredom of the work at hand, or the work I make up for myself to do just to stay busy. I also go to the bathroom ever 20 minutes and do some lunges. It is a necessity with all the cookies these women stuff down my throat. I truly cant wait till I am back in a position that challenges once again.
New roomie – CHECK! So now I live with not one but TWO boys from Tasmania. Ferg moved in a few weeks ago and so far so good. He recently graduated with his Masters in architecture and is currently working a the bar in front of our flat. So he will come in handy when I am thirsty and need shit built. And he sleeps with his door closed which is a relief. People who sleep with their door open are just asking for demons..
Both roomies have cool girlfriends – CHECK! Phew! What a nightmare my life would have been otherwise.I lucked out that 2 out of the only 10 cool Aussie chicks I have met ended up being the bosses of my roommies. We are currently in the process of turning one of them into a rapper.. stay tuned:)
Gym membership, home office, cooking, yoga – Yup yup and yup!
My life really is back to normal, it is as if I am not even in a foreign country anymore. But with this sense of settlement comes my normal life stresses and problems that I had back in the states. Still in need of money… Still looking for a guy to keep my interest for longer than it took me to write this sentence… Still on the hunt to forward my career job and still constantly stressed out with my MBA program. Same shit, different country. Or is it? There is a big difference. I am more content with these stresses and problems in my life now while here in Australia. I feel like I want things even more, but worry less. My problems do not seem so bad when here, it’s odd.. Its like my mind naturally ends every bad thought with, “but I am in Australia”, and that calms me down. Which is funny cause I know most people would probably have the opposite effect and think BUT I AM IN AUSTRALIAAAA AWW! 🙂
Everything is the same, yet everything is different and I am just arranging the pieces as they come my way <3
<3 Hot Mess
Your blog makes me miss living in Syd. I also got into rugby when I was there, my husband is from QLD so it’s only natural I routed for the maroons 🙂 Dating in OZ is different, one of the lines I always got was “Want a visa?” like that would really make any girl swoon. Good luck on the dating scene, there’s those nice Aussie guys out there.
Haha thank you! Ya I have a got the visa line a couple of times.. I tell them to wait till my visa is about to run out haha 🙂
OMG you need to let fate get you a date! Those profiles naked posing? Asking for threesomes? WOW! Glad you got a job albeit boring but it’s money! Enjoy Melbourne! Can’t wait to see your adventures & more photos
Haha thank you! Yea.. Fate can help out any day now 🙂
Reblogged this on mini2z and commented:

Go All Blacks!!!
Haha I’ve seen 2 out of 3 of those guys on tinder too. Back off woman, they’re mine!!! ;p
Hang in there 😉
😀 a great read. All the best with the new job
They leave a lot of things out of the tourist brochures like the amount of snakes in Byron Bay and the Man drought in Sydney. In terms of meeting someone, I don’t think you can go past meeting someone in person through a friend. I think the whole online dating scene turns into a smorgasboard with so much out there that it is very hard to make a choice. There could always be something better out there. Ballroom dancing is a suggestion. xx Rowena
You are an extremely gifted writer!!!!!! Please, do us all a favor and keep it up!!!!
Aww thank you so much 🙂 I am trying too! 🙂
You are hilarious, I love your natural writing style! Thank you for finding me so I could find you 🙂 I’ve been considering moving overseas recently so I can’t wait to read more of your posts to get a better idea of what to expect. If you ever need someone to hang out with in Melbourne let me know! Also, lol @ Tinder Aussie blokes, they are dangerous creatures indeed!
