Not long after I left behind a brilliant holiday in England, life started happening fast…
It was a bit like running down the street while blind folded during an earthquake — though I was grateful there were directions to move in even if I was about to hit something somewhat unforgiving at full speed.
What am I on about, you ask? Well, I returned to Australia in February 2015 with a weighty decision to make – where to next?
I faced the three classic options:
- Do nothing.
- Do something, haphazardly.
- Conquer the world.
In reality, these options looked more like this:
- Continue studying in Oz and keep soaking up the sun.
- Get certified to teach English and move to Asia.
- Find a better quality of life in New Zealand — find a home.
On May 24, 2015, I landed in Auckland.
The outcome: a topsy turvy mindset and many unsteady steps into the unknown.
