Now, onto my post topic. Have any of you been wondering what I do for work? The answer is this: it has absolutely nothing to do with my bachelor's degree in psychology! When I moved to Australia, I was on a "work and holiday visa". This means that I could live and work in Australia for a year, but I could not work at one job for more than six months at a time. Basically, I was not employable! I was all set to volunteer my time away, and then I met another American (dating an Adelaidian, just like me) who introduced me to her temp agency. Since then, I've been doing basic temp work. I started out with day to week long reception/admin jobs, but I've been very lucky over the past year. I've had two long-term jobs: one for five months and another that I'm currently working in. I've been working for Daikin, which is an international air conditioning company. I work with amazing people. Most of the time, they forget that I'm still there on a contract! I'm so comfortable there. When I went home in June, I still had a job there when I came back. The girls in the office also love sushi, so we get it for lunch every Friday. Who can complain about that?
I also have a special visa that allows me to stay and work there since I'm in a serious relationship/living with an Australian citizen. I no longer have that six-month restriction. Applying for the visa was a lot of work, though! Those Aussies are cracking down on their immigration.
Get ready for a lot of pictures! I used the camera on my iPhone to capture my afternoon when I leave work- from the bus stop to the gym! As you will be able to tell, it was very overcast.
Al always drops me off in the morning, since we luckily work very close to each other. In the afternoon, however, I take the bus to go to the gym.
I am also proud to say that I was a very happy blogger while writing this. It looks like Al won't have to password protect his computer.
