CH262: Risen

It's spring and winter is over! I was meant to update this entry with my experiences in snow during the past winter, but i never really got around to it and work took over and then life. Summer is coming after all so there's also the gym.

Life in Australia (Sydney) has been great! I try and think about how other people might feel if they were in my position - perhaps with adjusting to a different lifestyle or whatnot, but I never really thought about it. I never considered how I will have to adjust as much. I just have been living the same way as I used to when I was in Singapore. Although, there are key differences as Sydney is much bigger than Singapore. One in particular is late night outs. So I haven't been going out as much in the evenings mostly because it's expensive to have to take a cab, and I don't want to make a habit of taking Uber home (it was also just winter so go figure :)) ). Another key difference I would have to say is the expense of living here. When I calculate the grocery my mom and I made in Manila, 4000 pesos will already go a long way. From my average the past month, I think my grocery costs around 500 per month max. And I am just buying for one! I suppose I do get the savings from not having to eat out and getting control of what I eat - considering the price I paid for visits to the dietitian, I think it's worth it.

And from here on, is just a bunch of babble.

So, yeah, winter is finally over! Along with the lack of updates, I was contemplating this thought recently:

The greatest flaw of humans is not ambition or pride - but "getting carried away" and leaving rationale behind.

Put some thought into that.

Internet in my room is not particularly cooperative with how where the router is situated, so thats a bit of a bummer. And by this Saturday, I will be on holidays in Vietnam! :)

I enjoy the seasons. It makes things more interesting because you live the same life and same routine, but not exactly the same because the season is different. Layers have been reduced, and soon, I will have to shop for spring/summer! :)
