So it's super late & I have to be up super early tomorrow,
ergo this will have to be a quick entry, but I wanted to
write while the night's still fresh in my mind. I don't even
have all that much to say, I exhausted all my sweet prose
on the train, writing in the notebook some dear girl gave
me before I left. Trains always make me sentimental.

                                                                I've been in something of an emotional rut these past few days, despite
the beautiful sights that come as Autumn approaching. The trees are showing their first signs of red & I get to wake up each morning to a driveway full of crunchy yellow & orange leaves from the beautiful tree in our front yard. But aside from that I've just been completely unmotivated lately. It was good to get out tonight though, even if we didn't do too much. Wicker Park is easily one of new favourite places. It's so much like Sydney city at night time. Not quite the sleaze of Kings Cross but maybe the dysfunctionally interesting beauty of Newtown. Whatever you compare it too, I quite liked it. Met some charmers on the train too, two Americans who needed my help with directions. Can you imagine that? I'm finally enough of a local to play tour guide to some natives haha. I was extremely proud!

Not much else to say, mostly wanted to brag about the fact that I get my first real Fall. The one downfall of Australia has to be our lack of seasons. They're something I'm definitely going to miss (though ask me again when the novelty of winter snow has worn off & I may beg to differ). Also, due to lack of company and/or entertainment on the way home I finally made use of my camera. The photos are somewhat too arbitrary to be of any real interest to many of you, but I felt the need to
                                                               post them somewhere.
                                                                                                                                                        Enjoy (:
