I'm very excited! I just found out I'm going to live and work in Samoa for twelve months next year as an Australian Youth Ambassador for Development. I can't believe I got chosen to go.
I'll be a Library Management Officer at the National University of Samoa library.
I can't wait to live overseas again (I lived in London for six months when I was 21).
The timing is ideal. I can leave my Brunswick share house pretty easily and store my stuff with my folks; I'm recently single, which does make it a lot easier to leave Melbourne; I've just finished my masters; and I haven't found a really plum, permanent librarian job here yet.
I actually applied for Samoa the day before I was dumped out of the blue by my boyfriend-of-a-year. I don't know if I believe in fate, but it feels like there's an element of it here.
So look out for Better than Cheesecake becoming a travel blog from March next year!
