A New Job & A Papery Adventure to Newtown.


I Finally got a Job! I am super excited to start work at a Montesorri School as an Assitant Teacher in the 2-3 year old room! This week will be my last week of full days off - So I decided I'd go on a few adventures & make the most of my freedom - The first being to the crazy eclectic thrifty Newtown in Sydney City.. It took me about 50 minutes by car but was well worth it..
