After living in Australia for so long, I began to realised two very important things.
- I am definitely living on the far side of the world.
- It’s chilly in July.
That’s just as well. Living in the southern hemisphere where we get winter in July and also being on a time zone 13 hours ahead from friends on the other side of the world, it’s hard to maintain friends this far off. After all, it’s hard to have fun when people are just starting to wind down. Whenever I need to sleep, they are just getting up and vice versa.
Why can’t all the fun happen on this end of the hemisphere? I don’t know. But if anything, I doubt I won’t have any time in the future to find out.
This year Footsteps in the Mirror will be blogging to raise money for the Association for International Cancer Research which is a non-profit organisation that helps fund cancer research throughout the world. If you’re willing to help, you can sign up on the Blogathon website and pledge your amount right here. Help make a difference, no matter how small it may be.
