As I mentioned, I went into overdrive during the turbulence that Jess left behind. I hit the net, applying for jobs with my polished resume, my eye even leading me towards positions in a place I never thought I’d go. Home. Back to Brisbane. Back to the daily grind of network buses and busy people with no places to be. But at least it wouldn’t be here, and at least I’d be back with friends (friends who I miss dearly). And really, when one sits down and does the math, I would be in the same place financially as I am here.
So yes, I looked at giving away this life and turning tail back home.
