    Its crazy how I've jumped around with how i want to live the rest of my life or continue on with the next chapter in my life. I've gone from wanting to move to New York for school, to Boston, to staying in Los Angeles, to finally moving to Australia. If things go well with my application ill be attending University of Sydney next February. And I think Im content and happy with the decision I've made in moving. I've gone off on my own before but it was always with someone waiting for me on the other side or just a short term trip. I've lived in Spain for a few months when i was little with my family while our house was getting remodeled and i loved experiencing the culture. I think the one thing I'm worried/excited about now is that there is no one waiting on the other side for me, this is my adventure. I guess i could use some advice with what's what in Sydney.

    Welcome to Sydney!

    I guess I have been the same, I have moved from quite a few cities before I finally decided to move to Sydney last year.

    One thing I have found since I moved here is that in Sydney, guys tend to wear very simple and little cloth in the summary. So there are MEAT everywhere. icon_eek.gif

    Lol that's cause in summer it's as hot as heck here... Why bother with lots of clothing when it's more comfy to wear less!

    Only word of advice worse getting... Roll with it or we will eat you alive!!

    And that means everything but mostly in how we interact with other people, humor is used pretty much everywhere and for everything except in the corporate world and then it's much more underhanded humor.

    Since you're in LA, Sydney will suit you, I think. Moderate climate, nice beaches, big city, big gay community. And the Uni of Sydney is a good uni, both nationally and internationally. I'm pretty sure you'll love Sydney.

    @Space_Cowboy: Hum, it's better to pay a visit before making any decisions. I am looking forward a holiday to the big apple!

    When I think of NYC, I think of Sex and the city, Time squares, Men in suits, Movie stars, cute American boys. icon_biggrin.gif

    To me, Sydney is sort of a smaller version of NYC but it's safer and has nice beaches ...

    Currently living temporarily in Sydney. Check out the sydney harbour, there are tons of stuff to do especially going to little bays and beaches around the water. Might stop at Taronga Zoo on the way out and stop at Fort Denison and have a coffee on the way back to the harbour. Go around the Botanical Gardens to check out beautiful park set ups and flowers if you're into that. Darling Harbour have lots of things to see as well with the maritime museum and the aquarium.

    Paddington, Newtown, Oxford have big gay concentrations, but most areas in Sydney are gay-friendly. paddington Markets on the weekends are wonderful to check out. The Chinatown they have is pretty cool but smaller; and you definitely have to dine in at Sydney Tower, wonderful city views! Since you're going to be here in February, there will be big Mardi Gras escapades all over the area, so that might peek your interest.
