Hello, I live in Canberra now. I've been here for nearly a week, and haven't had a single job interview. Then again, there was the long weekend, so this is really only my third business day here. It's a weird feeling, like being on some kind of enforced holiday. Staying in a furnished apartment, not working, knowing nobody, learning my way around this city... But with the added bonuses of trying to find work and looking for a permanent place to live, too. It's like this nasty little cycle: It's hard to look for jobs and houses without having your own computer in your own house. But I won't have my own computer until I have a house to put it in. But we probably won't be able to rent a house until I have a job. How's that for nasty?! The world is not kind to relocators. We're also trying, or at least thinking of trying, to get a loan so that we can pay out our credit cards and buy a car/motorbike for Aidan. How adult, taking out a loan. Never done that before. Never needed to. I'm 25 now, by the way. I don't feel any different. I'd better get back to looking for jobs.
