*sits*

*stares at computer screen*

*wonders what to write*

I still haven't located a computer place where I could hook my camera in so no photos for you guys yet *sigh*. I might just take my own laptop to the nearest Starbucks for wireless access. There is one about 10-minute walk away. We went to Taronga Zoo yesterday and I'd have fluffy cuddly koala pics to share...

I think I'm either getting a cold or I'm allergic to the city fumes after such a long time on the country. If something like that is possible...the same thing happened to me in New York. My throat is sore-ish and I think the jetlag is at its worst today - others like Ida have crashed to bed every night at six thus far while I've been okay until almost midnight and then waking somewhere between four and six in the morning. No wonder I'm feeling a bit run-down. Blah. The other people in my room are students desperately trying to find flats in Sydney - listening to them I'm thankful I don't have to do that.

I applied for a tax file number today and asked the headquarters for some office jobs - need to email my resume to agencies. If nothing comes out of it, then I'll just head out of Sydney and go fruit-picking or something. I found a cool safari kind of trip from Adelaide to Darwin that I'd like to do - camping under the stars at the outback sounds rather nice. There is so much to do and even though a year feels like a long time, it probably won't even be enough...

*goes for a nap*

Thanks for the warning! It might be winter when I do it too so have to take lots of clothes with me...in fact I need to buy them since I didn't really bring any, couldn't fit them into my bag.

Welcome to Australia :-)

I wrote you a comment the other day but LJ decided to not post it and then I just got cranky at it :-P

So you're going to live in the hostel the entire time you're there?

Thank you:) Ah, evil LJ...
Yeah, I might switch from hostel to hostel, I'm always after the cheapest deal but I don't think I'll stay anywhere long enough to rent a flat.

I hope you'll feel better soon, hon! But yeah, maybe like yous aid it's the city fumes if you're not used to it. Maybe you could see a doc to be sure...

Last september was the first time i'd experienced jetlag. Its so weird, your tired. But you still wake up at 5 in the morning and don't feel tired till the afternoon. And some people seem to be imune to it. It made me feel off for days.

Camping in the outback does sound nice. I hope you manage to find a job!

Jetlag is suckage...they say your body takes one day to adapt to each timezone that's been crossed and the change for me was like nine zones ...

wow I envy you, sore throat and all. seems like forever since I could chose what to do... ah well.

Menthol throat drops might help keep the city from getting to you. I use Olba drops. they're strong and work on my asthma when it kicks up. kind of overpowers whatever's in the air andreplaces it with healing menthol... (g) gets annoying to taste all day if you need to keep taking them~~ but it works.

hang tight hon.
