For my first day at Tweek (Tuesday) I was up before the sun, dressed in my jeans, a black tee and my denim boaters. Grabbed a coffee, threw on my big scarf and coat and was off down the hill, keeping time to some sweet beats. I've turned into one of those iPod people - never saw that coming... I never take my earphones out anymore! As I walked up the hill on Church St my brain filled with a sense of achievement and elation - I was here precisely six months ago, when I made the big decision to move - imagining exactly what it would be like to walk these streets as my own. And now I was doing it, so I skipped a little bit from happiness and took a bite out of my breakfast sausage roll. Then I saw a big hot air balloon, rising above the trees and the city ready to greet the sunrise!
Yesterday I had my interview with Flight Center, in St Kilda. I think it went well, but I should know tomorrow if I'm up for a job or not. Not long to wait, which is mint. You should have seen my outfit - I looked quite the true corporate. My new heels are fabulous. Afterwards, I meant to pop in on S's hair appointment to say 'hey', but at the last minute it was cancelled, so I had tea on Toorak Rd at this retro American-style burger place that feels like the 50's. Fun! The burger was good, though the most exciting thing was that they sell Peanut Butter M n Ms! Eat your heart out, Samus (haha)! I bought three packets.
Caught the train home with all the business men and got right into my pyjamas the moment I arrived. Such a relief... these city moguls are tough! I'm going to be super skinny if I walk my hill like this every day. And I finished my book (The Host by Stephanie Meyer). It was really, really great - I highly recommend it. Don't hold the Twilight series against her; they were well written. I think she is an amazing writer. What an imagination! Freaks me out! Read it.
So if you're a Melbournite, contact me! I'd love to hear from you - we might meet. I'm so excited about this new start and I'm so ready for full steam ahead. I will experience everything and make every day count. I'm off now for a coffee and a sausage roll - probably my favourite food at the moment. Perfect weather for a soft sausage roll with tomato sauce, and a big chocolatey mocha.
