Journal Entry #004

Sunday, December 9th, 2018

The other day, I was thinking about how quickly December is flying by already… like, the first week is done! It’s funny because back in November, it was hella slow.

On Friday, I mailed out two gift packages back to Canada – one for my family, and one for my old work family. Apparently, there’s something going on with Canada Post so only expedited service was available (T__T) so I literally spent $120 in postage yesterday, but I guess they’ll get it in 4 days? If I knew how quickly it’d get there, I wouldn’t have rushed! Plus, on Friday, it was a high of 36 degrees and I felt the chocolate bars melting when I was preparing my packages. 

A small incident occurred with sending gifts back home that caused me to get really mad at Dan so when he came back from work, we had a huge chat about everything, primarily our relationship. I won’t go into big details but shit happened and I took a break from it all back at the start of November.

I think we both needed the talk because I was finally able to cry and fully talk about what happened. He had a clearer picture because he didn’t realize how hurt I was from everything and everyone and why I felt the way I feel towards our group of friends. We talked about the future of our relationship, our feelings, and what we’re going to do from here on out. I think there was a big gap that wasn’t addressed properly after the whole incident blew up and this talk was able to fill the gap.

Regardless, I feel like I still need to take a break but it’s much, much better than it was last month. 

Yesterday we went on a big date day to the Old Melbourne Gaol. Today, I finished writing about our date day just a few hours ago. 

We also started watching The Haunting of Hill House and I normally don’t do well with horror but this isn’t as scary as people make it out to be. I mean, I’m only on the second episode but it’s a bit of a slow start.

It’s a very lazy day today and that’s exactly how I love my Sundays. Tomorrow, I’m meal prepping and visiting a local laser hair removal clinic for a consultant (and maybe my first session?!). I’ve been wanting to get my underarms done for the longest time and being in Melbourne, I was getting tired of shaving my underarms everyday. Also, they have a summer sale of $9 per session… so why not?

Oh, I have great news as well! I start full-time work on Tuesday! Unfortunately, it’s not with ME but with a health organization, I interviewed for last week. The commute isn’t as bad as I thought it would be – I mean, not as close as it would’ve been if I worked with ME, but whatever. I can use that time to relax and listen to some audiobooks. 

The great thing about the role is the fact that it’s exactly 6 months! It fits perfectly with my visa restriction and they’re understanding that I’m here to travel and would be flexible with any future trips.

Anyways, Dan is cooking a salmon Alfredo spaghetti thing (can you tell how much I know about Italian cuisine? lol) for dinner tonight and I’m super excited for that yummy meal 🙂

  1. Two weeks to Christmas! December is definitely flying. I will give The Haunting of Hill House a go, I might try and read the book to prepare myself, haha. Congrats on the new job, hope it’s going well!


  2. I hope all of your packages were sent & the chocolate stayed in tact. Communication is so important, I’m happy to hear you & Dan were able to talk things out a bit. I hope all is well between you two now. ♡

    The big date day seemed amazing– I loved reading about it! Let us know if you’re doing the laser hair removal! I’m super curious about how it goes. 🙂

    Congratulations on snagging that full-time position!!! 😄 Hope you enjoyed your pasta dinner!!!


  3. December truly has flown by hasn’t it! A total “blink and you’ve missed it” kinda month 🙂 Massive congratulations on getting the full-time job, it’s great you’re looking to the positives regarding the commute too, audiobooks are always a good idea 😀 The Haunting of Hill House sounds really good, I’ll have to check it out! Wishing you the most magical rest of Decemer! ♥︎
