My Melbourne experience began in a crazy, dirty sharehouse with 5 others. All students. It certainly was a fun adventure, always a party and very little sleep, but as someone who was trying to work fulltime and be a reasonably functioning person during my working hours, it only lasted three months. For the next 3 years I moved around, 4 different houses, a number of different people. Now I've finally settled out in the suburbs with the man. Bit of a shock to the system being out in the bush away from all the action, but I'm actually really happy out here!
The longer I have been living here the harder it has gotten to meet new people. I've met some great people and have a few awesome friends, but its hard to expand my social circle when the only place you go is work. I suppose up until recently, when I decided it was time to make more of an effort and put myself back out there , I had stopped TRYING, but I also feel that there is a definite initial window of opportunity where it is easier to meet people because you are "new in town". Make the most of it!!
Melbourne is such an amazing city, so much to do and so much to offer. I moved here with the intention of "getting a foot in the door" of the jewellery industry and then moving back closer to my family, but it was love at first sight! I will probably never leave.
About me.... what can I say? Nothing too exciting to tell. I'm a jeweller. I like creative adventures and exploring new things and I LOVE to eat. A lot. I hate this part where you have to talk about yourself. I could never speed date.
If you want to know about me you will have to wait until I figure it out for myself. If you want to get to know about Melbourne, come back soon!
