InSoMniA  – I went to bed at 12am, woke up at 3am, it’s now 6:30.. 😟 I put on a movie – hopefully that’ll do the trick.. I bet I fall back asleep right as the sun comes up. 😎 wish the beach was a tad bit closer I’d go watch sunrise.

Modest Mouse Leak

March 13, 3015

Today’s been an great day. One of my favorite bands had their album leaked.. Their first album in over eight years. I’ve been walking around in the sun listening to it through headphones and now am making my way to the beach to soak up some rays and listen to it all over again! (I’m still gonna buy the CD but couldn’t resist the early release!)


Goodbye, Anna

March 12, 2015

Two days ago I said my final goodbye to one of my oldest friends from Australia. You know how much you mean to me.. Thanks for being my sense of reason and the person I constantly go to when shit hits the fan and I don’t know what to do. I’m a better person because of you.. I can’t think of *anything* better to get out of a friendship. Thank you.


Preparing my Australia Departure

March 9, 2015

Going through my photos over the past year here in Australia.. I’m such a lucky guy. I’ve met so many extraordinary people and seen such beautiful places. It’s all quite surreal.. I can’t wait to get this Australia video together..  When I get home I am going to get a huge project underway where I will combine both.. Thank’s to everyone whose shown interest in what I’ve been up to and made efforts to connect with me while I’ve been gone these past two years. I can’t wait to see you all in real life, the clocks ticking.. I don’t wanna leave here.. but at the same time I am so ready to see everyone. Maybe the biggest Catch-22 of my life!

Same, Same, but Different

March 8, 2015

I realized I slacked on my “series” of everyday things you see in Australia that are different from things back home. The first one was the beer selection (yes, this falls under “everyday” things), and the other was the sink with two separate faucets for hot/cold making warm “impossible”.. Now I bring you two more..

The top one is the electrical outlets.. or as Aussies call them, “Powerpoints.” Don’t go opening your Microsoft Office quite yet, they just want a damn plug. What‘s different, besides the shape, is that each outlet has an on/off switch. There were so many times when I first arrived I would plug something in and come back hours later to only find it hadn’t charged at all because I forgot to turn the plug on! You learn quickly..

The bottom photo is a toilet flusher! Yep, there are two options. One delivers more water for your solids and the other less water for your liquids! An attempt to conserve water but for the longest time I kept forgetting which was which.. And at times still do now. Therefore, if it doesn’t all go down then push the other one!

I have an ongoing note on my phone of all things Aussie when it comes to vocabulary.. I have my final two weeks off work so I think I’ll get to writing that bad boy this week… It’s been a year in the making!
