    Now let me tell you why!

    I move to Brisbane this saturday the 25th feb!

    Over the last few days I had a few phone interviews, one went particularly well and I'm excited about that position because it's a good fit. I interviews exceptionally well, BUT they have dozens of others to interview as well SOOO I'll be keeping my excitement in check on that one and either way that interview was a fantastic learning experience!

    I can't wait though Brisbane here I come icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif and OMG I'm nervous as hell!!!

    hahahaha

    I'm moving to Brisbane because of the life style there. I'm from wollongong, it's total beach town with that slow and relaxed feel to it. But I can't live there cause it's honestly a shit hole (to me anyway)

    I like city life but I really don't want city city, Brisbane feels more like a beach city.

    Plus Sydney is kinda a rat race to no where.

    Congratulations! Breathe and exhale deeply! Mediation, proper diet, and exercise can help with nerves as well.

    What, no nude beaches? How about gay?

    Looks great, and best of all you're happy about it. Hope your dreams come true. icon_biggrin.gif

    Welcome to brisbane! I love it here, though the muggy climate takes some getting used to (especially for a cold-area kiwi like me!)

    What area are you looking to move to? I'm just south-west of the city and think it's just about perfect.

    Good luck with the job interviews - my experience here is that the interview process is a very long and drawn out one! Took me nearly 2 months from first receiving an acknowledge of my application (which I had sent in a week prior) til when I actually started the position.

    To many to quote so.. here we go!

    Thank you Doughy and Bill *grins* I hope I'll go awesome in my interviews icon_biggrin.gif

    Mizu, you can come visit when ever you want! There's always the a side of the bed for you available! icon_razz.gif

    Art, I think there are nude beaches and gay beaches and all sorts of beaches but I havent any idea where

    EastCoastNAZ, Thanks man I hope so too, but either way the move is set and I'm going to make it work!

    GuyfromNZ, I want to live in the CBD area or just outside of it to be honest, I was looking at new farm or kangaroo point, some place like that where it's easy to get into the city! But I can't wait, I've been up there enough and I Know the weather and I think I can handle it but I'm an aussie in sydney so it's not to much a change for me!

    Sweetyork, awesome man, what city are you moving too? it's an exciting experience to be moving to make a new life in a new area! Good luck man!

    Dude I lived in Brisbane for half a year and I promise you'll fall in love with the place. You're just one hour away from Surfer's Paradise and South Bank is just an amazing place to hang out with friends <3 DO NOT FORGET TO DRINK A KING WILLIAM CHOCOLATE FROM BOOST! lol
    Hope everything works great with your job interview...
    G'day mate! icon_biggrin.gif

    Okies, so, I'm now in Brisbane, staying at friends place for about six weeks.

    Trip didn't go as planned, I drove up but broke down in newrybar. However my mate came and saved me and all my crap in the car, thankfully it's fixed now!

    Anyway, I got offered a job on the Tuesday (three days after I arrived) which was awesome, it's full time and permanent so that's pretty sweet, it's also within a stable company with room to move about and progress. So I'm really happy about that.

    Otherwise I've been exploring Brisbane. Seeing sights. Having fun and loving the weather!!!!

    But I'm just pretty stoked about the job offer, here for three days and BAM landed a job without even meeting face to face (it was all over the phone) but I was awesome in the phone interview!

    Other employers were disappointed at not getting a chance but this job was one of three I applied for that was permanent so I immediately accepted, I like the security plus I have more leniency in this role.

    So, things are on the up and up.

    Doughy, bill, love yas both icon_biggrin.gif

    AX91, why did you leave Brisbane?
