Today marks the second anniversary of the Nerd Burger blog. So much has happened in this past year. It has been the most difficult and life changing part of my life so far. I was lucky to have you guys with me when I moved to Melbourne from my home town.
My first week in Melbourne was horrible. I came down for a job I had gotten over the phone. Turned out the man that hired me was horrible and treated the animals at the clinic with so much hate. I saw things that no one should ever have to see in those first two days. I quit on the spot and after over 400 job applications and numerous interviews I got my dream job at the vet clinic I am at now. I have an amazing work team who I now call my friends. I did not think I would ever be this happy. My best friends have moved to Melbourne now too, so life keeps getting better and better.
After the initial set backs we eventually got jobs and a place to live. One day when out looking for things for our apartment I stumbled upon Daiso. The magical Japanese discount store of my dreams. I swear I visit at least once a week.
This past year I have seen and met some rad people like Corey Miller, Crispin Glover, Gail Simone and Tim and Eric. Melbourne has opened up so many opportunity's for me including the chance to finally see Hanson live and to shake the hand of David Hasselhoff.
I am loving life in Melbourne so much and for the first time in ages feel creative again. The blog has been totally re designed and I have created so many new crafts that I sell in my online store. I even tried cosplaying for the first time and made my own Aquaman costume. It feels great to not be as stressed anymore.
Thank you nerds from the bottom of my heart for your continued support over the past two years. Whenever I am feeling stressed or bad about myself all I need to do is read your e-mails and comments and I feel like a princess. I love you guys so much and I can not wait to share the next year with you.
