Mission Impossible?

I start work on Tuesday.

Hard to believe, but I haven't been working the past 2 months, a quarter of the past year. As they say, time flies when you're having fun. I'm eager to start working again for many reasons besides the obvious. Other than receiving an income, I'll have a bit more organization to my day, the feeling of being productive and bettering my mind/skills.

My life before getting a job was like this:

Look up jobs online.
Apply for jobs.
Decide what to eat.
Decide whether to stay indoors, walk around the city, go to the beach, or hang out with friends.
Decide what to eat.
Rinse and repeat.

Since summer is around the corner and all this free time is coming to an end, I'm committing myself to a few missions during my upcoming "normal" schedule.

Mission #1
Learn how to surf at Bondi Beach or Manly Beach...both are awesome.

I'll be able to do about 15 years.
Mission #2
Get PADI certified. Opens up a whole new world of exploring.

Reefs, shipwrecks, schools of fish, and Dexter's dead bodies.
Mission #3
Learn how to play Rugby...and not die in the process.

Hopefully I don't look like this guy.
Mission #4
Obtain a 3rd passport so I can feel like a spy. This will take a while... 

Jason Bourne, eat your heart out.
Mission #5
Participate in the Movember Movement.

I will look like an illegal immigrant for a month...for men's health!
November is Men's Health awareness month...and as a means to bring awareness to issues such as prostate cancer and men's depression, Australians grow mustaches. This is proof of how manly this place is.

Mission #6
Find American Bacon.

Enough Said
Mission #7
Convince friends to move down here...

Australian lifestyle > American lifestyle

I'm pretty patriotic about America...but it's just so much better here that I can't put it into words.

Oh hey just hanging out.

Aha that's like a nest of bacon, very nice. Aha no pics of bacon in Australia, aha, the Australians are onto something. - no pics no product = a society that is not obese. I swear every time I watch food shows someone is freaking out about how AMAZING bacon is and then they're introducing new variations of it aha
