back on the couch
How does it feel like, to wake up in the sun How does it feel like, to shine on everyone How does it feel like, to let fovever be How does it feel like, to spend a little lifetime sitting in the gutter Scream out sympathy Chemical Brothers, Let Forever Be
so im back in london again, sleeping on chris' couch...
i got a job! chris' girlfriend malin came home the other night and said to me 'my boss wants to see you, she wants to offer you a job' ha! easiest job i've ever been offered! so im now an employee of the Prince Regent in South Kensington. its a pretty cool place, little bit classy, they do good food and offer heaps of wine.. im behind the bar so its not all that different to back home. just the little things i hafta get used to.. oh and speakinng of jobs - chris FINALLY got a full time job where they can sponsor him to stick round after his visa expires (a few months) stoked!
i've also checked out a few places to stay over the last few days. theres been a few cool places, we'll see how it goes.
had my first walkabout experience the other day. walkabout bars are pubs branded with a tacky, kitsch australian theme... also didnt help that we were there the night of the cricket world cup final and thus the place was packed! oh it was such a dive!
got my laptop the other day which my parents sent over. almost didnt get it when i rang up and was told that it had already been delivered (and i hadnt recieved anything.. ) it somehow turned up on the weekend so alls well that ends well. so i've been able to sort out my photos and am uploading and reorganising them as i type. another good thing bout that package not getting lost is my replacement debit/credit card was in there! oh so good to have that now..
so yeah i've grouped my pics according to where they are from and started to upload heaps of ones that i didnt have online. check them out, iv done most of them, just not cambodia yet cos iv got thOUsands of pics of angkor wat... i've also uploaded 2 more vids from the swings in Vang Viene - here.
umm not much else to report i dont think...
oh ps i meant to mention in my previous post that in istanbul and at the ANZAC dawn service Jo took most of the nighttime pics cos her camera takes really really good low light photos.. so when she gets to london in mid may im gonna steal them off her camera and put them online..
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
