Time for a change of scenery?

I was just listening to a drum n bass podcast & an artist I respect alot said, “Live music is life changing” and it inspired me to write. Inspiration is all around me & just sitting here, listening to this podcast, something in me has changed.

Seeing my favourite hip hop duo on Friday night, changed me. I was taken on a journey & now I’m left with this constant thought in my mind: Should I move or not?

Melbourne has been on my mind since I first visited May 2009 but it wasn’t until the past few months that I’ve seriously considered moving there. I didn’t realise they actually had my course until yesterday so it’s really thrown me off.  I haven’t been able to think straight since.

It’s been 4 years since I moved to Perth & I think it’s time for a new adventure. I think I’m capable of another move but this time alone. I also think I’m capable of living on my own.

But only problem is, I have to decide as soon as possible. If I want to move, I have to do so before February, as soon as I come back from Europe so I start university there.

I have alot of phone calls to make with universities, banks & friends that studied over there.

Can I do it?

  1. I definitely think you can do it! You’re such a strong and independant girl and after your trip to Europe you’re going to feel like you can do anything. Your big trip is also going to make you feel even more like you want to move away and live on your own, it’s not easy standing on your own two feet for several months only to go back to living with your parents again. It kind of sucks. I’ve had a hard time living at home ever since I moved back from Prague. Getting a taste of living on my own and then re-adapting to living with my mom absolutely sucked and still sucks. So I don’t think you have anything to worry about, you can definitely do it and you are definitely ready to take that step. A lot of people move away when they go to Uni so it would only be natural for you to do so and it’ll make you grow even more.

  2. I spoke too soon 😦 As much as I am capable of moving, the uni I want to go to in Melbourne has an age requirement of 21 as a mature age (as in, getting into uni other than the standard high school way) and here it’s 20.

    I HAVE to start next year so I can get it over with faster so my only option is to go to uni here in 2011 & see if I can transfer in 2012.

    I guess things happen for a reason. If I stay in Perth, I can go away in July for Sophie’s 21st & celebrate my 21st here with my friends in August & then move to Melbourne the summer of 2011/2012.

    But thank you for believing in me 🙂
