his summer all my energy and focus is being put towards saving for my australia trip. That's right, come the middle of November I will be relocating to Brisbane, Australia. I will be making the long journey with my dear friend Ryan.
(Ryan and I have known each other since highschool, nothing romantic has ever developed it has always just been a very close friendship, which I am more than happy with. I'm the girl he comes to when he needs an aliby for his girlfriend, advice or just someone to tell his ridiculous stories too. When I was living in Toronto, Ryan was the guy to disappear but sure enough, would resurface at my front door the next morning, with a story that only he could produce. Although he holds the reputation for having the most outrageous sex and cheating stories, he also holds the reputation for being one of the smartest people I know. His reason for travelling to australia is to complete his Master's in Politcal Science.......told you he was smart.)
When we arrive in Australia we will be meeting up with our other extremly close friend Logan. He also went to highschool with us, but Ryan and Logan grew up together, way before I was in the picture. Logan has been there for 3 months already and is waiting for our arrival. He currently has a gf back home but unfortunatly for him, there are not too many people who support the relationship. She tried to hitch a ride to Aussie with Ryan and I but we weren't having any of it. SOOOOO she is going for the month of August before we get there, where we hope Logan smartens up and gets rid of her.
(A small piece of gossip about Logan is that he has cheated on his gf numerous times, and during his farewell party, he kissed me. It was the most out of nowhere but almost expected kiss I had ever experienced. We were having our farewell chat, both kind of in shock that we wouldn't see each other everyday for the next little while, when he asked to kiss me. Logan is my best friend aside from Ali (you've got to have your gf). I tell him everything so when he leaped on me and whispered, how he couldn't believe he was kissing me. My body gave out and all I could do was kiss him back. It was the perfect way to say, see you later. Where everything stands now, DON'T ASK! Your guess is as good as mine.)
ANYWAYS, When Ryan and I arrive the 3 of us will be sharing a house while Ryan completes his Masters and Logan and I work. To introduce us around the area will be my cousins, which will be nice, especially on holidays when the 3 of us are so far from home.
So there you have it, the summary of why saving money is so important this summer.
