Day 2 – 20th April, 2011
One of the biggest concerns when moving to a new city and starting a fresh is the never ending concern, money!
What will you do for money? How will you support yourself? How will you survive. Ok so maybe a tad dramatic… but it is a big part of our lives and we do need to think about it!
I really had no idea what I would do here in Melbourne. Living with a friend and seeing where I go from there. Hoping to get more into the writing arena. but really need to start with cold, hard cash!
So to my surprise and delight, I was asked to help on my very first mornign with some cleaning for my friends friend. So we hit up 2 houses, I vacuumed, dusted and walked away with cash in my hot little hand. So good. Had been in Melbourne just 15 hours and I was already working.
To a lot of people who know me, this could be of a concern, working for a workaholic isnt always the best option. But i’m so happy with it. It’s fun, I get to be with my friend, it’s exercise and it’s cash!! Easy and reminds me of my Canada days as a housekeeper hahha so funny!!
So we’ve got the cash, we’ve got the friends and life is on the move.
Loving living with my Gal Pal Adair and excited for adventures to come.
I’ve spent the afternoon scouring brochures of what to do in Melbourne!! I need tips so send them on through please.
