Since 2010

Getting pretty close

Thursday 25 March 2010

I’m not yet entirely sure what the purpose of this site is, so I’m using it as a kind of record of this journey. I’m sure it will prove to be a useful reminder of what it took to get to wherever I am in a few years.

Anyway, my passport is now back in my hands, now complete with label. I’m still not sure what the purpose of this label is, but there’s no doubt that my visa application is now well and truly done and dusted, and I can go ahead and book flights. That’s a job for tomorrow.

In other news, my beloved iMac was taken from me today by a nice man from DHL. I miss it already! I’ve also initiated a SWIFT transfer of some money from my UK building society account to my Australian bank account. That process seemed awfully low-tech considering it’s 2010, but I know nothing about that industry, and I’m sure it’s much more complicated behind the scenes than I care to know about.

Update

Tuesday 30th March 2010: iMac was signed for by one of my colleagues at USyd on Monday morning local time. Brilliant shipping service from DHL!
