Since turning 23 on the 4th of August, there have been some exciting developments in my life.
Firstly, on the 4th I had my hair cut and coloured, exciting, no?! On the same day, as I was leaving the salon (after 4 hours no less!) I received a call from the editor of the newspaper I did work experience at in July, formally offering me a job as a journalist. Cue excitement!!!!! So I leave the fair city of Melbourne to follow my dreams in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, on the 26th of August. Cue organising to finish uni by correspondence, packing and finding a new home.
So here I am, with my new hair, holding a textbook with the apt title ‘So you want to be a journalist?’ which ironically, I have not opened once. Maybe i’ll take it with me…
