At Uni

I'm at uni for the first time this semester, and also the first time since the recent floods. Not a lot has changed since last year, aside from a change in the shape of the river banks. But, one of the computer labs that I've spent a lot of time in has been filled with macs! The real computers have gone! Gah!

2 years

Exactly 2 years ago today I landed in Australia after a long stint away. Back then, my plan was to complete the 3 years ahead of me at uni and then return, as soon as possible, to France. Towards the end of last year, I was starting to feel that maybe I'd be content with living here and just visiting France/Europe for the odd holiday every couple of years, however, now, after returning again, I'm back at the stage where my relocation to France can't come soon enough.
I hope there are decent jobs there for my chosen field. I definitely do not feel like working there again in the ESL industry (it's an acceptable industry in other lands, but it is horrible in France).
The awful and expensive public transport system in Brisbane that I'm currently a passenger on isn't helping matters. I think it's even more expensive than the public transport system in London, especially when compared to other costs in both cities.

J'étais où?

I used my phone's GPS today, in Brisbane, and was amused to see the last location on the screen. When the system's first switched on, the screen shows the last location for a few moments until it finds the satellites and updates the display. Well, when I switched it on, the last location was Casablanca.
