Sea Change

In about 2 months’ time, I’m plan­ning to be in Europe for at least a month. I’ll pack up, leave Can­berra, and spend 4 weeks kick­ing back overseas.

I may not come back.

Well, not to Can­berra, any­way. I’m feel­ing a strong urge to relo­cate, to be some­where else. There are peo­ple that I dearly love in Can­berra, but I do not care for it as a city. Peo­ple tend to be closed off; there’s a pre­vail­ing atti­tude of snob­bery and affected elit­ism that I can’t abide. In short, there’s a lot of pre­ten­tious wankers here.

Plus, it’s bit­terly bloody cold.

I’m con­sid­er­ing a shift to Mel­bourne, where I have a lot of friends and fam­ily. It’s all very up-​in-​the-​air. Assum­ing Europe goes ahead, I may sim­ply give up my cur­rent place in a share house and make some deci­sions when I get back.

Time to hit the road.
