August 20-October 7

Okay, too long since I've written on here, I know.  To summarize the last month and a half... busy?  I finished my job out in the desert in the Northern Territory - only took 13 days for the record, and I'm currently sitting in the Cooper Basin in the southwest corner of Queensland, another desert, finishing a job here.  Gotta love all these far, far away jobs with great pay!  Mostly, I've been working and working.  Hardly seems like there's a second for myself most days.  I'll stick to the positives though.  I had some days off at the beginning of September - 5 days of blissful time without work.  :)  I went to Mooloolaba, QLD, the beach!  Took a co-worker along and we walked the beach, ate good food, drank a bit, and spent more money than I've spent in the previous 4 months combined.  (Granted, the most exciting thing I've bought in the last 4 months was a calculator, so don't think I'm not being fiscally responsible.)  I had a great time, and it was all too short.  I payed off the first of my student loans in September, so all that great salary is at least going to something useful.  I bought a bike!  It's only an 8 minute ride to work, so I think I can handle it.  I'm searching for a new job, so if you know something about a good one in the States, let me know.  I've decided that while I like my job well enough, it's not my whole life, so changes need to be made. 
That's the long and short of it, and I hope to get on here to tell everybody that I'm doing okay, and I can't wait to be Stateside in less than a month!  Coming soon to America - this girl!  Home for three weeks, October 28-November 15.  See you then.  :)
