What do you do when you wake up to a giant gnarly kookaburra sitting on the fence outside eating a rat and literally wacking the rat against the fence with its beak to kill it??
(Photo is post-rat because no one wants to see that).
You book a one way ticket to NEW ZEALAND that’s what you do.
That’s right guys! Back to the mothership.
I am SO EXCITED about this. The Australian adventure has been amazing and I have had the time of my life here (let’s not talk about my leaving Bestie because I will cry) but now that I am finishing my masters it is time for a change.
I can’t wait to spend a tonne of time back in the parental nest, attached at the hip to my amazing sis, and to start working a normal full time job and doing some adulting 😉 I am also enjoying some denial and really think that I can still convince Bestie to come with me and work as my own private pastry chef.
My dad’s response to the news:
Now just to finish these final 8000 words worth of assignments …
Have you ever lived overseas? For how long? – This is the longest I have lived away from my own country, almost two years (not including visits back in the middle).
What was your first real full-time job? – I worked full time at some random jobs during uni holidays etc but my first real full time job was as a mental health support worker/counsellor.
What horrifies you more, rats, mice, spiders, bugs, or other? – SPIDERS but the rat getting eaten by the kookaburra was a little tough to stomach at 6.45am.
