Wild, Scary, & Crazy; an Uncertain Journey

Hey,

In case you forgot me, I’m Shreya, and this used to be primarily a poetry blog. Although I tried being more consistent or active out here, life has been crazy as I ventured onto a wild journey more than 5000 miles away from home. On February 16th, 2022, I left home and moved to Melbourne for my further studies. And believe me, it’s been quite a wild, scary, and crazy journey.

Getting used to Melbourne wasn’t that hard. As I’m living with my cousin, everything is much easier than it would have been if I didn’t know anyone here. I got a job as a kitchen hand at a pizza place almost immediately, which was nice. Everything seemed to be going smoothly. But well, you can always expect unseen issues when everything is going way too perfectly.

I didn’t even realize I was being underpaid, and since then, it’s been a long roller coaster ride of job-hopping and trying to break into the content industry in Melbourne. My copywriting portfolio, the one I was always so proud of, seems inadequate. All that I do seems not enough. The grading system here is different than what I’m used to, so I need to adjust to that too. I feel lost yet super excited for all that’s there to come.

So, since I don’t think I’ll be able to dedicate much time to poetry, I guess I’ll be using this space for lifestyle articles, showcasing my portfolio, and so on. While I’ll be posting many different things here, I haven’t given up on poetry, I’ll still be writing poetry from time to time.

Looking forward to reconnecting with you all. Feel free to drop in your favorite blog links in the comments section cause I’m sure I’ve missed out on a lot.

Love ya,
Shreya Joshi

    Hard to leave beautiful Himalayan region for the hot and sometimes cold climate of Melbourne. Welcome to Australia. Having worked in several different countries it takes time to work out how to survive in another culture. After living for 30 years in Asia I had challenges fitting back into my own Australian culture so know what its like. 🙂 You will soon work your way into the system and enjoy life here. Welcome!
