Think back to those sweet memories of your perfect summer holiday; those trips to the beach; your unforgettable overseas adventures; the impossible weekday benders; the four months of time to do whatever hell you wanted… And quietly come to the realisation that those days are now over. Ha ha hah.
…. Okay, that is bit of an exaggeration. Being an international student in Brisbane has meant I get to travel quite a bit when it’s the holiday times. My holiday travel has most recently included coming home to Sri Lanka. So when I left Brisbane, the temperature got down to 5 degrees and when I arrived in Sri Lanka the temperature got up to 32 degrees. Hence, my poor justification for the exaggeration.
Okay, so what I’m about to say may scare some of you…….Uni holidays are just around the corner! Life just goes so quickly (I’m sure most of you would agree)! And I couldn’t be happier, not only does it mean I’m one step closer to finishing my degree, but that I get to escape from the family friends I live with!
Moving from Bundaberg, I couldn’t afford my own unit or apartment straight away and all of my friends who also moved had somewhere to live, so I was left with choice to live with distant family who I barely know or live with close family friends. Thinking it would be a good idea, I chose to live with the family friends. But… what a bad decision that was.
