We are all too much inclined, I think, to walk through life with our eyes closed.There are things around us and right at our feet that we have never seen, because we have never really looked. We should not keep forever on the public road going only where others have gone; we should leave the beaten track occasionally and enter the woods. Every time you do that you will be certain to find something you have never seen before. Of course, it will be a little thing; but do not ignore it. Follow it up, explore all around it; one discovery will lead to another and before you know it you will have something worth thinking about to ocupy your mind, for all really big discoveries are the results of thought.

so says Alexander Graham Bell

i've booked my ticket, blogpeeps. i fly to melbourne very early on april 1st. yes, april fool's day. as someone said to me, maybe that just means i need to embark on this adventure with a sense of humour.

i have a room lined up for two and a half months, starting about 2 weeks after i arrive. it's in brunswick, a suburb which fills me with delight, and i'll be living with two queer girls around the same age as me. so yeah, things are falling into place very pleasingly.

i can't wait to check out ceres environment park, which just happens to be in brunswick also... not to mention all those gorgeous organic vegetarian cafes and secondhand bookshops. next thing is to find a job quicksmart!

5 weeks and counting.



edit: oh, so this one did post in the end. well read it twice, blogpeeps.
