Just found out that D is now on a popular rockband touring Australia. It was strange looking a his promo photo splashed across the internet and on posters. Beneath the thick mask of rock star costume, I recognised his hands and facial features instantly. It's funny how music can bring back a floodgate of memories. The last time I heard that sort of music he was spending most of his waking hours rehearsing in that messy sweaty apartment. The hauntingly dizzying rock tunes played over and over as he repeatedly practised practised and practised.

I knew I loved you before I met you
A shadow standing before the space of time
You are the touch of soft silk on my beautiful evening dress,
the whisper of autumn wind across treetops of golden leaves,
the luxurious dark chocolate that melts devilishly sweet,
and the golden warm sunshine on a winter’s day.
Perhaps I have made you too perfect.

(Above:We still look the same after 10 years! Catching up with the old 'spice girls' gang from high school)
Smartly dressed, smiling and strutting around with an extra spring in my step, I joked to one of my best friends on the phone that I'm experiencing my 'honeymoon high' period. Honeymoon with the city of Melbourne that is.
These days I'm living the kind of lifestyle I envisioned several months ago. No longer do I dream of that sex and the city style girly catch ups, nights out with mates in trendy bars/clubs, lattes under undrenched sidewalk cafes and homely family dinners. I'm finally living this sort of lifestyle right here right now-in this vibrant city, voted one of the most liveable in the world. The autumn air is crisp and buzzing with electricity, fashion dresses flowing, music pumping and streets filled with ethnic culinary delights, street performances and funky fashion.
After figuring out the right work-life balance, with a sense of satisfation in helping the public, and the interesting prospect of striking up fascinating conversations with people from all walks of life-my job is actually enjoyable and suits me well.
The future is painted with a rainbow of possibilities. I plan to finally tap into and work on my creative interests, as well as thinking about money and investments. Oh and perhaps meet the man of my dreams. Hehe.
