03 March 2013 – We are going to move! We are going to move out of Sydney to somewhere cheaper.
In 2012 Sydney came 7th in the top 10 most expensive cities to live in the world (SMH). It is the most expensive place to live in Australia and it feels like it is only getting worse. Rent has always been a cause for concern among the young creatives I have known.
Many have moved to Melbourne and god forbid it, Canberra. Others live in huge share houses, their own studios, at home with their parents or in Squats around the inner west.
At the moment I am working to afford a life close to my work. It is a bad cycle to be in and one that needs to stop if I am to have any real time to commit to this change of career. My fiance works online from home, so he can go anywhere. So we are going to get out of here for a while.
We are going to move to Merimbula.
Hmmm. Genius? I think yes.
