I have a new job, in a different part of the same university I currently work. I start mid-September. It has the potential to be great, if I can navigate the politics.
We're thinking of buying a place, a position I could scarcely imagine for myself five years ago. A complicating factor is we're deeply urban types and don't want to leave inner Melbourne, which means we're going to have to buy a unit or apartment rather than a house. And buying an apartment in Melbourne and Sydney at the moment is a hazardous enterprise.
