Sydney To-Dos

August 12th, 2011 § 5 comments

Yes, I haven’t been blogging that much. Mike Jones mentioned it and it’s blatantly true.

I could talk about the stress lameness of moving back to your home town. How everyone already has an outline of whom you are as a person and what your role is in their lives. Or how I’ve been deeply insecure about my creativity to the point where it froze me for a couple of months (maybe half a year). Or I could talk about how much I hate Glee.

But I don’t want to do that, it’s depressive shit.

I’d rather have fun with you.

Grow with you. Laugh a little.

So my solution is this: I’ll treat Sydney (and by extension, myself) like a tourist. With fresh eyes.

This is what I’m going to accomplish:

  • Eat kangaroo.
  • Write. Put more of myself out there, more often. Not really Sydney-specific but very important.
  • Get a cheesy photo with a Koala
  • Ride the Ferris Wheel at Luna Park
  • Take a walking tour around Sydney
  • Go to a footy/afl game and drink beer and eat junk
  • Learn to Surf
  • Ride my bike on George St (the busiest street in Sydney)
  • Eat a bloody great steak
  • See something, anything at the Opera House

    My Sydney to-do was to swim in the world’s most scenic open-air pool at the foot of the Harbour Bridge. I’d been past it every day on the train when I lived there, but never got around to taking the plunge. Last year I went back on holiday and finally did it – had a massive beaming smile on my face the whole time. Highly recommended!

    I really ought to go to Penrith or similar to make it count.

    Sorry to point this out, but going to an AFL game is something tourists visiting Sydney do when they are home in the non-good parts of the country.
