You've come a long way, baby.

It's exactly five years today since I moved into this house - leaving my old home / city / state behind and starting over. It's been a good five years and in hindsight it definitely was the right thing to do, although at the time I was a bit concerned about how things would turn out. It was a bit scary in truth. For example, I didn't have a job to go to; I had applied for a transfer but nothing had come through by the time my house sale went through so I took long service leave from the bank and trusted to the fates. And fate was kind to me - I started in my new branch on 10 May when my long service leave ended.
There are things I miss, people mostly (hey anonpussynamer, I'm talking to you!) and at times I miss the atmosphere of my previous town, which is a tourist town located on the north coast of NSW. I miss being able to drive down to the beach and walk through the sand, and I miss the ozone and salt smell of the air. But on the whole I wouldn't trade things.
I posted here about the move in 2004. Also posted here about the new job! And I must say, I later found out there were seven applicants; I wasn't the only one, as I had suspected at the time. Turns out that I was the only one who had bothered to include an overview of my results in my application.
