3 things I noticed after my first overseas trip
1. Squinty Eyes – it was so bright over there
It wasn’t until I came back and talked to a friend that I realised why, In Australia I spend most of my time inside and my eyes were just adjusting the whole time I was overseas. This is incredibly depressing especially since I am someone that loves being outdoors!
2. Every single day – I woke up before my alarm
This is quiet significant for me especially cause it’s really hard for me to fall asleep, it was also by a fair amount of time, like 2-3 hours. I would just get up and write postcards or in my journal while I waited for my sister to wake up. I also usually fell asleep after around 5 minutes of my head hitting the pillow. This is probably relating to number three –>
3. No stress / Better mood
We had our moments, few tiffs, got lost, things went wrong but the stress I felt was nothing compared to what I felt at home in my 9-5 job. This obviously led to me being in a better mood the whole trip except for when I had been driving for 4 + hours.
It made me realised how unhappy I was in my current position, it sucks. The two things I want to do at the moment is TRAVEL & UNIVERSITY, it’s hard to travel while completing university plus saving money; I don’t live at home either so I need to earn money to support myself.
Any suggestions would be welcomed!
