New Country, New people and Finally! New Pictures of me :P

Funny that I thought I'd have more to say on a regular basis than I have in the past month or so. Perhaps its because I'm getting things straight with my decision to move to Australia, which is a beautiful but stressful place!

Why? You Americans out there will appreciate this:
- When you order furniture, you can get something you want delivered in a few days, or if you're really desperate you can get floor stock for a discount.
- When you rent an apartment you know by default that there will be a REFRIGERATOR in the apartment. Nothing suprised me more than the fact that in order to avoid buying my own fridge I had to get a fully furnished apartment, which for me was not an option (I have my own sense of style)
- Rent is not posted at a weekly rate when the only way you are billed is monthly. Seems like a bait and switch -- $370 p/w seems less intimidating than $1580, which is what it costs in a month.

The list goes on, but we'll leave it at that for now. Let's see what Australia has to offer as far as nightlife and weekend wars from Starbucks like hangouts to the museums and art galleries-- anybody have any suggestions?
