Walk with Me
My brother teases me about my job: I’m a dental hygienist. He thinks I’m crazy putting my hands in people’s mouths all day long, but I don’t see it like that. For one thing, I wear gloves! And I get to meet lots of people, instead of staring at a computer for hours on end. It’s just a shame dental treatment is so expensive — the people who need it, can’t afford it. Our healthcare system has some real holes in it.
I’m studying Spanish at the moment — I’m off to Mexico next year for three months. It’ll be a culture shock after Brisbane, but who wants a predictable holiday? I’ve been researching online, and already have a list of must-see ruins. Plus I downloaded a cool app about eating out in Mexico City.
I rent an apartment in Greenslopes; I love it. I live alone but I’m never lonely. I’m so close to everything: the restaurants and bars of Woolloongabba, the CBD (I’m right near the busway), parks. I don’t have a boyfriend, but lately I’ve been flirting with one of my brother’s mates — he drums in a local band, and has promised to give me lessons. I can just see myself as a rock-chick! I mean, I go to enough gigs.
This weekend, some girlfriends and I are going to the weekend markets over in West End. We’ll probably have brunch then head over to the Gallery of Modern Art. Never a dull moment!
