It’s about midnight right now, and I have no intention of sleeping soon…and I don’t think I would be able to either because I’m so
so so jetlagged.
With the memories of our amazing trip to Australia swimming in my head, it’s hard to believe that I’m back in SoCal. Not that SoCal is a bad place to be at all, but I still have to miss Australia. It would be a dream to work in Sydney someday – who doesn’t want to work in a city that is right on the coast? I am truly grateful that USC Marshall created the LINC program for its first year students. This experience is unparalleled in terms of company visits, professional growth, and international experience. Additionally, the bonds our group formed in this short week in Sydney are irreplaceable. Going to another country as a group really brought everyone together and we had a great time. At the end of it all, we were able to make fun of each other and laugh about it – about that one kid who was always late to meetings and the other one who couldn’t stop talking, and those fratstars who just couldn’t contain themselves.
Our trip ended with a nighttime cruise on the Sydney Harbor. We were there in the months when Vivid Sydney takes place and the Opera House and Sydney Bridge are lit up with a rainbow of colored lights. It was beautiful.
A huge thank you to Julia Plotts, Christina Garcia, and Robertas Gabrys for arranging and accompanying us on our trip. We loved it, and you three made it possible.
