I just spent the weekend at a hotel in Carlton with about 90 other returned AYADs at an official “Debrief” weekend. We did all the stuff you’d expect to do at a debrief, like reflect on our experiences and how they compared to our expectations, discussed how the program could improve, etc. etc. All that stuff was fine, but the funnest part was hearing about other people’s jobs and deciding it would be fun to go off somewhere again, somewhere reeeeaally remote, and doing a job that would be reeaaally strange.
But then I remember, I live in Australia now and do fun Australian things – like see The Flaming Lips and walk on footpaths! It seems like a pretty good trade off at the moment because I really love footpaths, but you just never know what funny old job might come up next, and I suppose it makes for a better blog too!
