So, here I am writing from my new apartment. Black coffee, Simon & Garfunkel album spinning *Scarborough Fair, currently*, Bank Holiday Monday… life’s actually great. I feel right in my element, and things can only progressively improve moving forward.
The week just gone was one I have been anticipating for a long time (years); I am pleased to say it went as smooth as it possibly could. I am rightfully declared a dual Australian/Hungarian citizen. It feels cool saying that… yeah baby, I am European! My appointment was surprisingly really brief, it lasted about an entire 18 minutes; passport biometrics were taken *clink*, in and out I was!
…I just had to jump up and flip the record, so lost my train of thought… but to conclude on the above overall experience: I am so pleased it has worked out. It was a weight I was carrying on my shoulders for a long time, and I now can finally relax! For something that was technically a given, it was a complicated process – which saw many highs and lows (so I was constantly paranoid and unsure)… for someone that enjoys being as organised as possible, this FREAKED ME OUT. As a result, I think know I definitely freaked out almost everyone that works for the Hungarian Consul …internationally… (they’re certainly thanking this is over, too).
Something else which is a little exciting, it is my one year anniversary of publishing this blog! And I think I’ve posted a whole of 12/13 times? That’s awful… I’m not too great at this, clearly. But guaranteed I will be acting on that. I have so much coming up over the next 12 months, I am going to have to release my thoughts somewhere (and what better place?).
I have four months left residing in B-Vegas (Brisbane), then will be moving back to L-Town (London). I will need to find a job, a place to live, and begin my degree at uni. So, just a few things (it sounds daunting, but you’d be surprised what tricks you can pull from a hat when need be!) Sometimes I get a little ahead of myself, I actually need to stop & appreciate my days here until then. So, signing off – I’m going to do just that…
