It might hit me when a certain song comes on the radio, it might be the smell of someone’s perfume, seeing an old photo or reading about what friends are up to on social networks. This week it was a constant sick feeling that made me want to buy a one way ticket home and never come back.
I think a lot of this is caused by my serious thought about the QLC (oh, by the way, thank you to everyone that has read and/or left comments on that post). I have a handful of good friends here in Melbourne, but my social circle here is nothing like what it was back in New Zealand. I had multiple groups of friends: high school girlfriends, musical theatre friends, university friends etc. It is much harder to make new friends as you get older.
How do you know if you are in the right place? What if I don’t belong here and it never feels like home? How long do you give it before you throw in the towel?
I have decided to hold off on any rash decisions to move back home until I return from overseas and manage to get some fun (particularly music or theatre) back into my life, but I would be interested in hearing from you readers.
