It's now (just) April 26th. Just four more months here in Australia. It's hard to believe how quickly the time has gone by, how much I've done, and how much I've changed. Don't worry, this isn't one of those soul searching posts.
It's Passover, for those who didn't know, and I woke up this morning (the 25th) and spoke to my mom's side of the family for a while. (And a shoutout to Dan Lange for being my brother). It was sad in some ways that I wasn't there to celebrate it for the 2nd year in a row (well, technically the 6th, but at least the previous 4 I was in the same country). As much as I love things down under, a large part of me is ready to move on with my life. I'm going to miss the people here and Sydney itself tremendously, but I think it's time. I do still have to finish up my program though, and get what I came here for, but I know the next few months will fly by.
On a related note, we are all saying our goodbye's to Sherlee now. She leaves on Wednesday for good, so we've spent the past few days/weeks cramming in everything we can. Peruvian and Zellini's on Saturday, Schnitzl at Joe's on Sunday, and Kingsford Chinese Resturant (KCR) on Tuesday. I also took a break from studying today to see Three Dollars with Sherlee and her sister at Paris Cinema in Fox Studios. Not to get too off topic, but the movie reminded me of Waxwings by Johnathan Raban in a number of ways. It was well done, and really enjoyable, but not really an uplifter.
The rest of the day today has been spent studying for my exam tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get it done without too much hassle, and make some progress on my lab work this week as well. Before I know it the semester will be over, so I better enjoy the rest of my time here, and then get on enjoying the rest of my life.
We missed you too! Looking forward to celebrating a holiday with both of my boys. For now though, enjoy the rest of your time.............and study hard!Post a Comment
