I haven't been in a blogging sort of mood this week! I'm feel a bit unmotivated, probably because I haven't got anything to really post about - I'm trying to cut down shopping and going/eating out to save money (besides, I really should be studying). I've been feeling content with the routine though - come home, have dinner, study in bed with a cup of coffee, read a bit, sleep.
I guess a change of scenery might help get things going and - how convenient - I'm off to do my month-long rural surgery term tomorrow in a small town up in northern NSW, a 7 hour-or-so drive from Sydney. I'm looking forward to doing some national park exploring, and maybe a weekend trip to Byron Bay if I can muster the energy.
Here is a last bit of Sydney as a round-up before I leave (my friends say I make it sound like I'm leaving forever).
The city at dusk.
Dollar dog night at the Soda Factory on my birthday a few weeks ago.
My favourite place in Sydney.
My favourite pan-fried pork buns at Taste of Shanghai.
Tacos, quesadillas and margaritas last night at Los Vida, a Mexican restaurant I didn't realised existed at the top of Westfield Sydney.
"Jane, are you taking a photo of the moon? You realise you're going to be able to see the moon there as well, right?"
I'm sad that I'll be missing most of Vivid (making it back just in time for the last weekend though!), Eurovision fun (as Australia is in it this year I wanted to watch it live with friends), a Matildas match I wanted to go to, and the opening of Muji (which I strongly suspect will still be there when I get back). Anyway, as I'm taking my laptop and camera and everything, look forward to seeing my country bumpkin life updates!
