City or Suburb?

I was talking to another one of the Polish girls and she was talking about how she wants to live in England. She wants to go to school and settle down in Cambridge. She gained exposure to Cambridge when she went to visit her family because she had half of her family living there. The…

Polish and English

I met a group of Polish girls on the great ocean road trip. I was talking to them and one of them about the English and Polish language. It turns out they start learning English before kindergarten. They start by learning colors, animals, and other simple vocabulary at the age of 3. Then from grade…

Anderson Rd. Deli

I went to visit my friend’s mom’s deli in Fawkner, a suburb of Melbourne. It was an Italian deli that sold authentic Italian meats and little snacks. I got in and of course had to have a cappuccino. After that we just chatted about Melbourne vs. Sydney, travelling, living in a small suburb, and what…

Bar Fights, Car Ignites, and Century-Old Rivalry

I was watching the state of origin game in Melbourne at an Irish pub wearing the wrong color (go blues!) and these two English men sat next to me. They started cheering and booing as the game went on and I realised one went for NSW and one went for QLD. We had a grand…

The Old College Teammate

Melbourne has definitely been the time to rekindle old flames. I met several people distant to me, but at one point were significant to mine or a family member’s life. It was really exciting to get a glimpse into someone who went to college with my mom. I met my mom’s college golf teammate and…

The Outdated Timeline

I went and got drinks with a guy I met in my hostel. He opened my eyes to a whole new life. And talking with him has never made me more excited for the future. See right after high school, it is stressed that people in America go to college. Only then can you get…

Small Talk, Big Smile

I’ve started my two-month tour de Aussie and have been a bit busy trying to plan everything. So I was desperate when I got to my first destination, Canberra, for some relaxing, a beer, and live music. I walked halfway around the city for some gig and finally found one. But plot twist: she cancelled….

Goodbye

Goodbyes. They’re hard. But luckily I had some good friends that made saying goodbye hard. When I left for Sydney, it was so easy to go. I practically sprinted to the plane. But now, I find myself stalling every second of this packing. I was talking with a girl who was talking about how hard…

What is the Truth?

I was talking with my coworker about history, ancient text, and interpretation of old writings. It was a really interesting conversation that talked about how modern day problems were just as present as they were in 5000 B.C. We also talked about how whether or not the “truth” could ever really be the truth. What…

Just Jizz

There’s always one problem every time a blow job is given. Where to put the jizz. I was talking to my two friends about where to put the juice after a blow job, if it’s socially acceptable not to swallow, and where it is acceptable to release. My friend has a “no rules” policy. Mouth,…

Picture This

I had to get a digital camera the other day because I’m about to go travelling for 2 months. My phone is actually so broken it can barely turn on, let alone try to take a picture, or I would normally just use the phone. Anyways, the price tag on some of these cameras! Then…

Health Insurance Innovation

Last one about the camping trip for a while, I promise. My friend and her boyfriend went on the trip as well and I was talking with the boyfriend about medical and technology advances and how that will impact how we insure people since we both work in insurance. Well that’s actually quite interesting. I…
