Re: Cost of living in Australia
Not to start stuff, but my best bud lives in Brisbane, and she's talked me into moving there. I've been doing research on it for several months now. and while certain things are oddly overpriced (30,000 dollars for a TOYOTA RUCKUS? Mine was 16,000 NEW.) the minimum wage is also around 16.00 dollars an hour, so its wise to remember they're on a different dollar than the US one (though last I checked both dollars actually traded very similar. yay economy)
She also said if anyone who lives in Adelaide was hating on Australia, or said they hated immigrants. it was because Adelaide is full of African Immigrants. and is a bit of a craphole (I don't know if the two things are related)
now, when I get to brisbane I will have a group of people to kinda... help me acclimate.
I'd love to get some opinions on all of this from people who AREN'T my best friend.
