Heya People
How is everyone doing?
What you guys been up to?

Yesterday the 19th of August, marked the end of my 6th month spent in New Zealand.
I arrived in Auckland on the 19th of February, insecure and full of anxiety, unsure if I could do this.
Now I am here, way more confident than I ever was, because now I KNOW what I can do, I've SEEN what I can do.
The future is still scary but I am confident now that I can make it.
I can't believe I ever thought that I might only stay 6 months in New Zealand, because now, I don't want to leave.
(But also, I miss my friends and family)

My time as an Au Pair in Wellington is also slowly coming to a close (can't believe I did this for so long) and soon I'll be traveling again.

Wellington has been a place of many great changes for me.
I finally cut my hair and allowed myself to present in a more androgynous way.
The one thing I'm currently missing to present the way I want, is a binder, bc they are hard to get in NZ and I don't have the money to pay giant shipping fees
But I'm still so much happier now.
And that's just one thing of the many that happened.

Future Changes Include:
-Coloring my hair purple next friday
(Finally some exciting colors again)
- I want to get a tattoo, but once again, no money
(I might just do it anyway. Even if it means I have to work again much sooner)
(Yea I know getting a binder shipped to NZ is cheaper than getting a tat)
(But it's too late for that now, because it wouldn't arrive while I'm still in welly, and after that, who knows when I will spend a longer time in one place again)

I am happy to go travelng again soon, and finally see the South Island, but I feel sad to leave Welly behind.
This city has come to feel like home to me, and I will miss it, and it's people.
There are so many beautiful, wonderful, nice and generous people here.
And the LGBTQ+ community is alive and wonderful and I feel at home (Ivy Bar I will miss you)
I made friends for life here.
Some of them are travellers like me, so I might meet them again, because New Zealand is a small country, but I will miss them too.
I still have some more weeks here but time flies and I'm busy working most of the week.

Callback to [this]  Status from almost 6 months ago and shoutout to xWintermondx who said I would look back on it and smile because everything will have changed.
Well. You were right.

Travel if you have the cahnce.
Spend a year abroad.
It will change your life.
It will change you.
