I’m trying to not fester in a negative mindset right now, trying to find what’s bothering me about being here and do something about it, but even after nine months I can’t seem to get any traction. It’s easy to resent the hole you’re in because it’s a lot harder to try and crawl out. But how do you connect with people in a city where nobody will look you in the eye?
I’ve been lying to people a lot over the past couple weeks. They ask me if I’m having a good time in Australia. And I keep saying yes. Saying no will only confuse them.
