Week 17 together!!

We love cuddles!

This week was pretty good! Ciera had six shifts for work this week, which is the most she’s ever had! She was exhausted by the end of the week, and so was I (but then again, I always am). We relaxed a lot during the weekend, which is something we both needed… I always seem to work so hard :P.

On Tuesday, Ciera worked two different shifts. Both were in the CBD, so I got to see her for both lunch and after work! It was great. Seeing her after work means I get to spend even more time with her than usual! :). On Friday, I met Ciera after work, and we both went to Melbourne Central to meet up with a few of my friends from university. It was pretty much a little get-together. We had had one a few weeks ago as well, but Ciera didn’t want to come along to that one. This time, she did, and we all went to have dinner somewhere at Melbourne Central. I ate a delicious chicken parma, and Ciera had some (also delicious) penne with meatballs. My friends had some alcoholic drinks, but since Ciera and I don’t drink alcohol, we decided on some other drinks. Ciera had a strawberry smoothie and I had a Coca Cola. All in all, the night was pretty good :)

Saturday was pretty awesome. We had a rather lazy day, but remembered that Sonic The Hedgehog 4 had been released! We went onto Wiiware on our Wii, paid for and downloaded the game, and tried it out. It’s pretty awesome! Not as good as the older Sonic games though. We ended up just spending the day playing it as well as the older Sonic games, in emulators. Today’s Sunday, which has been a pretty lazy day too. We played some more games, and at the moment, I’m writing this blog post while Ciera plays yet more games xD. We were going to look more into the Partner Visa stuff, but haven’t done that yet. We’ll have to eventually though. It’ll be kinda fun. :)

Until next time (that’s my sign-off line, not Ciera’s!),

Week 10 together – Ciera’s first day!

Eating at Phamish after a visit to St. Kilda.

This week really wasn’t too eventful for us. Daniel worked all week and I was home all week until Thursday when I saw Daniel for lunch.

As mentioned in the title, I had my first day of work this Friday. All week I was dealing with first day jitters and all the anxiety piled up. Thursday night ended up being a bad night for both of us. I was feeling really homesick and wanting the comfort of the bed I was so used to just a couple months back. While explaining it to Daniel, we both started crying. I hate seeing him cry… He loves me so much and was worried I wanted to go home and leave him here alone, again. :( I would never, ever do that unless I absolutely had to. For instance, my visa expires and he can’t leave with me. I just wanted to share a bad moment we’ve had. Our relationship isn’t perfect but we deal with things because we are determined to be together forever.

The first day of work was nothing to worry about, but I can’t help to get the jitters :P. I had to wake up at 4:30 am to get to Melb. Central Train Station (where I worked) by 6:30. I wasn’t able to sleep that night but somehow managed to stay awake through the shift and the rest of the day. […]

Week 9 together – Ciera gets a job

Cute picture of us.

Wow, week 9 already! The weeks seem to go so quickly when you’re having fun :)! This week, Ciera had her Myki training on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. By the end of Thursday, she found out that she had gotten the job! I’m so proud of her, and glad that she’s finally found a job in Australia :). Her first shift is this Friday, really really early in the morning (6:30 AM).

Friday, when I finished work for the day, we went to Papa Gino’s for dinner (yes, again). This time, we got some different food than last time (I got lasagna, and Ciera got ravioli), and it was quite delicious. I’d recommend going there to anyone looking for good Italian food! On Saturday, we went into the city to go to Lord of the Fries for lunch, and to see a Tim Burton exhibition at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image). […]

Week 8 together!

Kisses!

Wow! Daniel and I have made it through another month together! I never questioned we’d make it through but it’s still so amazing to think about. I’m really excited about next month, though. On the 26th of September it will be two years since we met online. To me, that feels more important than when we decided to be together. Life would be so much different if we never met and I know we’re both so happy we started a life together!

Anyways, let me tell you about this week. It has been really great! We’ve both managed to be pretty busy. On Monday Daniel and I went to dinner at Papa Gino’s, one of the many Italian restaurants on Lygon Street. We both got some pasta and it was delicious! We are planning on going back very soon :)! For my friends back in “The Valley”, Fazzari’s is very similar.

Tuesday, I had a Myki assessment. Before that I met up with Daniel so we could have lunch with his cousin. […]
