Farewell Australia....

Things I will miss...

Tim Tam's
Not having to tip your waiter
La Porchetta
Aussie Beer
Bar 20
Unpredictable weather
Aussie wildlife

Things I won't miss...

Not having to tip your waiter (lazy service because they don't work for tips!)
Small portions of food at high prices (Australians don't understand what a Big Mac is)
The stench of 40 sweaty people smashed into a tram on a hot day
Cost of living
Tram Police
Not having a dish washer
Huntsman Spiders
The symphony of birds outside my window at 6am
Tiger Airways and the elevator they made me sleep in

Wow....what a ride. I'm truly going to miss this place. I've had the time of my life out here, met some awesome people, and learned a hell of a lot. I am now in the process of moving back to Redwood City, CA to work full time as a concept artist for Crystal Dynamics. I am absolutely stoked about this position and can't wait to get back to the Golden State!
