Other than the usual F45 sessions & drives out to the 1,000 steps, I checked out Laneway Festival with C and ate my way through Melbourne when my Perth friend K came to visit.
After the most incredible two weeks of my life in Hawaii, I flew back to Melbourne and spent the night at C’s place before unpacking my new place and heading straight back to work (not the brightest idea let me tell you!)
Another day, another pop up! This time it was a pop up floating bar by the guys at Arbory. Other than Ponyfish Island, it would be good to have more permanent bars on the water because it’s so lovely being near the river on a warm afternoon.
Living in Melbourne sure has its perks. It was the Australian Football grand final at the beginning of the month & because so many people fly to Melbourne to watch it/ be part of the atmosphere, the State government decided to make the Friday before a public holiday. Thanks guys!
September was another good month. It was a month with no study for the first time in four months & I spent the month exploring Melbourne & seeing friends.
August was good & bad. I spent half the month (as well as other months) studying for a really important verbal interview for my career development only to not pass (but not quite fail). Sad face. Lucky I get another opportunity to sit the interview again in three months time so I gave myself half the month off from study and it was bliss!
July was a relatively quiet month. Following my report submission last month, I spent this month studying and having mock interviews with industry professionals. Most days looked like this: wake up, work, study, work, gym/sauna and sleep.
The sauna is my go to place in the winter months, especially now that I’m living in Melbourne. I think there’s nothing more relaxing than a sauna session before bed and when I finally decide what city I will base myself in, my future home will definitely have a sauna!
July wasn’t ALL about herbanating. H moved over from New Zealand so we went to Myrtles Crepes one Sunday; I finally checked out Chez Dre`, Lentil as Anything & Axil Roasters. Highly recommend them all!
Haloumi & corn fritter from Axil Roasters. YUM!
& after talking to my housemate one evening and realising we both love Christmas, we hosted a little Xmas in July party at our place which fell on Saturday 25th (couldn’t of been more perfect!)
We had a Christmas tree, santa hats/christmas sweaters, the best homemade gingerbread cookies, mulled wine and a room filled with lovely people. It honestly felt like Christmas.
Only 5 more months until Christmas time in December 😀
