@thingscatloves: What’s a defining momen

@thingscatloves: What’s a defining moment in your life? Hands down, living and working in Australia. When I was in my last semester at UT and looking through the job boards, I saw a headline that said “Work and Travel in Australia.” I learned more about the program and decided I was going to save up and head to Australia when it was possible. I didn’t get to travel much when I was younger, but I watched all the cool destinations I wanted to go to on TV. I really wanted to go to another country and this was my opportunity. That turned out to be a year later and I was on my way to Sydney. I didn’t know anyone there and I didn’t have a job lined up. The first month was spent exploring and trying out new things, like surfing. I found a job in Sydney and settled in. I built a network of friends and immersed myself in all that there was to see. I’m a pretty independent person, but going overseas by myself and starting from scratch was challenging, but I got through it and it showed me what I was capable of. As a bonus, I met my future husband six months after I landed in Sydney. We got married 6 months later, while my family looked on via Skype! You never know what will happen when you push yourself or hop on a plane!
