So far my week consists of wednesdays and sundays hanging with awesome new church people. Thats not a bad start to a social life after a month.
Sometimes hang out with work/ uni people as well on thursdays.
And friday arvo drinks with work.
Roomie tuesdays with the room mate where its just the two of us hanging out.
Yep. Newcastle is mine.
This post is dedicated to my friend ella who will probably never see it but she deserves it.
We met on my tour around indonesia at the end of december and became friends and then “roomies,” people who dont just share a room but share in their lives.
We had midnight feasts, swapped stories and talked about basically anything. We experienced lots of things for the first time which was cool!
She is one of the coolest, nicest and friendliest people i have ever met. And with similar music, movies and book tastes how much more can you want!
Then i had to go home and she had to go to her internship in palembang (indonesia) and we had to say good bye.
But luckily whatsapp has been invented and we spent 6 weeks talking nonstop which helped me deal with moving out and living by myself, to have someone to talk to.
Its the small things you miss. Like i missed being woken up at 3am when she came back to room for a slightly drunken but fun conversation. And just having someone in the same room as you is comforting.
And now she has finally headed home to be lots further away and that makes me sad. But one day we will visit each other and it will be amazing.
We will always have this time and no one can take away how special and how much it meant to me.
I am her leslie knope and she is my ann perkins.
I could go on but that will have to do.
“No matter how often I think I can’t stand it anymore, I always do. There is no alternative. I don’t fall, I don’t foam at the mouth, faint, collapse or die. It’s the same for all of us. You can’t get out of the inside of your own head. Something keeps you going. Something always does.”—Janice Galloway (via thatkindofwoman)
What my life had become since moving:
Well its a lot of working and sleeping.
And then to fill in the rest of my time i spend it talking to people, and hoping people will talk back.
Also lots of tv watching.
