Major Life Update


It has been cold enough in Sydney lately to wear a scarf (aka the sarong I bought in Rio), and my wool winter coat purchase has finally been vindicated.

Yep, that's my major life update, because my life has been pretty uneventful lately. Sorry for tricking you into this post. I'm frustrated at how I haven't found the time to sit down to blog over the last month, even though I really don't have much other actual completed productive work to show for it. My one-week break has just ended and I'm not feeling well rested at all - I spent most of it scrambling to do things I've neglected, trying to fit in catch ups and working mornings because I really need more money.

I guess that can be my life update. The reason why I've been scrimping and scrounging this year is because I have big plans for this summer, which is when I'm doing my elective terms (like exchange for med students). I think I've mentioned I'm going to be in London in February, and now I've sorted out where I'm going in December - Arusha, Tanzania! In between I'm going to see a bit more of southern Africa, do a tour of Egypt (inspired by Jessica's visit last year) and spend a few weeks in Spain and Portugal. I'm also hoping to fit in a little bit of Scandinavia if I have the time (and possibly more importantly, money). I'm excited but I need to get through exams first - I'm leaving straight after them, might put a bit of a damper on things if I don't pass!

  8. I'm so jealous of you in coat season! I'm currently playing a dangerous game of how nearly-naked can one be at work because it's so humid and hot here. Super exciting to hear about your travel plans Jane! Sorely tempted to take a year out and bop over to the places on my bucket list every time I scroll through this pretty blog of yours (:

    1. Ah yes, I think I'd keep our cold front over that game!

  16. Your travel plans sound so exciting! I'm sure all the saving and scrimping will be well worth it on your trips. I think sometimes breaks from blogging are much needed so it doesn't turn a hobby into a chore. Or at least that's how I feel about it anyway.

    (unsure if this posted before, sorry if I commented twice!)

  21. Visit the USA! You're so lucky to be traveling. I can't seem to find the time to do so, since my boyfriend is in grad school, and I'm working. I wish I had the funds to do so when I was studying still!
