I am finally back in Australia! Last Thursday I landed in Melbourne nice and early at about 5:30 in the morning. I feared getting through the customs and getting my baggage would take quite awhile. But no, don't let anyone fool you...it does not take as long to get through an Australian airport as it does a major one in the States. One thing that I found amusing was that when I went through customs, the officer looked at all my stamps and then looked at me and then looked back at the stamps and then asked "So where all have you been?" Believe it or not, this question confused and I kinda stammered trying to figure out what the man wanted until he asked "Were you in the U.S. before?" Uhhh DUH! I just got off a plane from L.A. and on my customs card it said I had boarded my flight in the US...that was a weird question.
I was quite jetlagged at first, but I seem to be all caught up now! It's been so great being back here and hanging out with Steve. On Saturday night we went out and I ran into a couple of my friends from when I was here previously so that was really nice! I plan to meet up with them soon to hang out and really catch up. Been looking for jobs and found some possibilities but today will be the day I will actually be handing out the resumes. Hopefully it will pay off and I'll start working soon! I am going to spend the day in the city doing that and also getting information on how to set up a bank account here! So much to do but so excited that I am starting this next adventure!
Much more later! Wish me luck on the job hunt :)
