Ever since I've came back from my volunteer trip, I've been contemplating about whether I should move to Sydney one day. "Sydney or Perth?" This question keeps repeating itself over and over again in my mind. Why the sudden thought, you may ask? Well, most of my new friends (that were on the same volunteer program) are from Sydney. We have bonded very well, to the extent that I feel like I know and get along better with them as compared to my old friends. Friendship chemistry, maybe? On top of that, I get all the support, understanding, trust, encouragement, love and care I need from these amazing people.
Perth has been hit with a dry spell in regards to job-seeking, as the unemployment rate is rising. It doesn't help that I'm due to graduate on the 10th of February this year. To be exact, in two weeks' time. What are my chances of getting a job in Perth? Submitted a stack of resumes during mid-June last year, to no avail. I didn't even get a 'rejection letter' from any of those companies which was disappointing as the waiting game went on for what seems like forever. It's like watching a movie that seems promising, but you end up not knowing the ending. All I ask is for a 'yes' or 'no' answer. Is it so hard?
Nevertheless, I'm still undecided on whether to choose Sydney or Perth. There are pros and cons to living in both states. Rent and property prices are more expensive in Sydney, but other than that, Sydney takes the lead. I'm fully aware that my choice depends on priority and what I deem important, except I haven't really done a proper comparison to be able to come to a conclusion. Besides, I haven't brought up this issue with my parents yet. Ah, Sydney or Perth? Dilemma, dilemma.
