It's been a long time since last time I posted anything. It's been a struggle with motivation as ya'll know I have been living in Gothenburg in Sweden since September last year and haven't really been doing much travelling. Or actually, that's a lie. I DID travel for about a month over Christmas together with Alex when he came to visit me. We did Sweden, Norway and England together and it was so lovely to meet all his relatives in England (and hilarious when he met my relatives who don't really speak English up in northern Sweden). Either way, except for that month of travelling I have just been working while sharing an apartment with my brother.
Over the time in Gothenburg I have made some really good friends and I have definitely fallen in love with the city (I'm not originally from here). The spirit of Gothenburg is really genuine and cultural, and now that summer has arrived, the city is truly beautiful. But there is another city, or more specifically one person, who had my heart before I even moved over here, and that's who I'm going to return to.
I'm obviously talking about Alex, living in a dreamy, tropical city on the East coast of Australia: Brisbane. Ever since I left Australia in August last year I haven't been able to let go of the thought of returning. It seemed a bit of a struggle though to get another visa, but that all came into place once...
I GOT ACCEPTED TO A UNIVERSITY IN BRISBANE!!
That's right, I'll soon be commencing a three-year degree in Environmental Science, based in beautiful Brisbane. Best of all, I get to go there on the 30th of May this year already! I can't believe how soon that is.
So, I have recently had my last day of work in Gothenburg. I had a very emotional but amazing leaving party last weekend to see off my loved and beautiful friends in Gothenburg, and on Wednesday this week I am renting a car to go back to my home town and spend my last week at home before moving overseas again.
It is a very big move to do. Literally, I am moving to the other side of the planet. I am very aware that it is a heart breaking move to do, for me and for my family. But hey, it's 2018. Flights are leaving every hour of the day, every day. So if Brisbane isn't for me, it's not like I'm stuck there forever. If I don't do this now, I am going to regret it for the rest of my life. Imagine thinking to yourself when it's all too late:
I didn't even give it a try.
Also, it not only heartbreak and sorrow that I'm moving. I mean, I wouldn't go unless I was HELLA EXCITED AND IT'S LIKE A DREAM COMING TRUE THAT I'LL GET TO STUDY WHAT I LOVE, WHERE I LOVE, WITH WHO I I LOVE?!?!??!?!?!???
Brisbane brace yourself I'm coming for you
