1st Week In Oz

Hi all!
Well, this is my first blog ever so bare with me while I work through all the kinks and learn all the blogging lingo.

So, I arrived in Sydney Sunday to a clear, nippy winter morning. Despite how much I was freaking out before arriving, I was surprisingly calm stepping out of the airport and into my new home for the next 6 months. After a nice cuppa tea at my cousins' house, I moved into my room at the Sydney University Village and was left to unpack and unwind. While the rooms here look so nice on the university website, it is obvious that they do not hire a cleaner after each tenant moves out which was not so nice to move into. Anyways, to make a long story short my first night in Sydney was nothing to write home about.

The next few days were me waking at 530am and wandering about King St in the early morning rain and cold. While this does not seem like a fun thing to do, the company on the streets at that time are quite interesting and there was never a dull moment.

I started my internship with Cirqlate Publicity on Tuesday and I am in love. On my first day, I picked clothing for 3 magazine shoots and have not looked back since! One of my favorite parts of the internship is being able to order designer clothes for a fraction of the retail price- my hunt for the best bargain shopping is over! So, I have done 2 days there so far and my boss and coworker are great. I could not have asked for a better job for the next 6 months.

I have been spending a lot of time with Susie and Brian as well. Brian is interested in setting me up with all the male Jewish guards in Sydney- I suppose I will never feel unsafe? The rest of the family have been great as well.

No major plans for the weekend just yet but that could change at any moment. More people are moving into the Village each day so anything is possible I guess.

Well, that's all the news I have for now. I will update with pictures as soon as my sister arrives with my camera charger next week! Love to all. I miss everyone and please keep in touch!

Hugs, Kisses and Aussie accents!
