Open Post: What's happening in your world?

Open post is where you get to tell us everything that’s going on in your world this week. After Mamamia Intern Alison fills you in about hers, obviously…

For those of you who haven’t been here before, Open Post is one of Mamamia’s most loved posts. It’s the one that goes up every Wednesday morning (sometimes almost at midday *ahem*) where we talk about everything that’s happened in our week.

So I’ll kick off.

As of right now I have been working at Mamamia as their newest intern for exactly 7 days, 2 hours, 42 minutes and 13 seconds, and I have loved every single minute of it. Imagine walking into the work place of your dreams and then times that feeling by a thousand and that’s how I have felt coming to work every day this past week. Mamamia is seriously awesome. The people are inspiring, I get to write about stuff I care about and I am learning so much every day.

As a Melbournite, I have travelled far and wide to be here (not really, my plane ride was over before I could finish my episode of SVU). This is the second time I have been to Sydney and I can only sum up my relationship with Sydney town as a love-hate relationship. So here are my top loves and hates of Sydney…

Love: I love how aesthetically pretty Sydney is. When I first stepped off the train at Circular Quay (which i quickly learnt is pronounced “key” – so embarrassing) I was amazed at the beauty of the harbour. The bridge, the water, the beautiful buildings – it’s hard not to love everything you see. Nothing in Melbourne compares to Sydney Harbour and it is a definite plus for Sydney.

Oh Sydney, just stop it.

Hate: The hills. So many hills. Why Sydney, why? As a moderately fit person (*cough cough*) I am not a fan of hills. But during my week in Sydney I have had to become accustomed to the burn in my calves as I involuntarily engage in some inclination walking. Definite con.

Love: I love seafood and I have had the pleasure of enjoying the BEST prawns I have ever had in my entire life. For all those seafood junkies out there get ready to write this down, Waterfront Restaurant located in The Rocks. Seriously amazing – get on it.

The view from the restaurant. Amazing.

So there you have it, that’s my week, the good and the bad.

Now over to you lovely MM readers…
