As I lie down on my bed writing on my handy dandy Surface Go device I love dearly and have used nearly nonstop since I got it from a deal here sometime last year, I would like to ask folks here who have been to Geelong or are living in Geelong currently or used to live in Geelong - what is life like there?
I assume as it is regional it would be peaceful and far more environmentally friendly and cleaner air if that makes sense.
If anyone has any recommendations for a good removalist with OzBargain certified good deals rates, do let me know. I live in a 1BR unit with the usual furniture - although I'm thinking of just renting my own truck and packing it in myself and hiring someone on Airtasker to help move the packed items in the truck and drive it.
What are bills like in Geelong too I suppose?
I have my usual fix of fruits and veggies from Pino's at Prahran Market for an incredible $15 each box. Does anyone know if an equivalent exists in Geelong or will I travel all the way to Prahran from Geelong haha?
random extra thoughts for myself and I guess if you'd like to read it too go on ahead!
I guess when I made this decision and handed my form to my university for a transfer and change of campus I was at the time slightly distraught at my current lot in life.
I suppose it's not all too bad, I'm not a NEET at the very least. I've got that going for me! I hit the gym recently (yesterday) and I am sore from doing a measly 10kg & 15kg shoulder press and chest press respectively rip.
So my main reasons for going to Geelong:
1) My current rent in Melbourne would afford me a much better (bigger) place over there than here.
2) Fewer distractions and I'm hoping since there's fewer people, a tighter community of sorts (I've joined their Facebook groups and I really like transition streets)
3) A fresh new start, fewer chances of meeting people I know beforehand there. My first two years in Melbourne was not a good one.
4) I get to explore a new place - although I'll likely have to get a car. More importantly: learn how to drive. When will self-driving cars become more commercialised and commonplace I wonder?
I know a classmate I hung out with once after exams finished who's also transferred over to the campus in Geelong and am thinking of shooting a message to go together next week. (I'll just be looking around)
