A few posts ago, I told you about my decision to go to Australia. I needed permission from school (my job) to leave my job for a while. For me, it was a big decision, because it’s unpaid, and you know, life is quite expensive… Don’t we all? But I took the risk and applied my request…
OH. MY. GOD. That’s pretty much how I felt when I heard my request was granted! Yes, you read this correctly, I got my permission from school. Which means I’m going to Australia in 2019! This is probably the best news I got and will get in 2018.

This means a lot of things. First of all, this means the planning can start. What started out as a dream, became a plan. An actual plan. Of course, we already had some things we wanted to do, but we always had to hold back, because, you know, we weren’t sure we were going. But now we’re sure, so we don’t have to hold back anymore. We can dream about it, we can talk about it, we can search for our plane tickets, … Sh*t just got real! Hooray! So if you know some Australian people with an extra bed, or just a couch we can crash on, let us know!

It also means I won’t earn any money for a short period next year. And the trip itself will also cost a lot of money. So I need to start a saving plan. I’ve already decided to take an extra job in our summer holiday, to fill that hole in my budget. Also, I’ve decided to stop buying shoes. As of today, I will truly try not to buy any more new shoes in 2018. This is a big step for me, guys, I love shoes. But I think I’ll love Australia even more. Also I’ll try not to buy useless stuff to decorate the house and you know, just save up on small things. What do you guys do to save money? I can always use some good advice!

So, yes, I’m a happy girl. AUSTRALIA, HERE I COME!
