Owning an Opal isn't as glamorous as what you'd think.
The price of rent will always shock you.
You're amazed when shops stay open past 4pm on weekends.
You always hold a naive hope that you'll find a parking spot.
When you originally found out everyone caught public transport to go to work you totally judged them.
But now you thank the gods above for the public transport system...
...Because it's a hell of a lot better than being stuck in this.
You find yourself craving fresh air and landscape views.
It took a very long time to get used to the fact you won't frequently run into anyone you know on the city streets.
Or the fact not every person on the street will smile or be polite.
And the bar prices... well they're definitely not as cheap.
And let's not even talk about entry prices into clubs.
Or the fact a haircut can cost you half your weekly pay.
You've made the mistake of wanting to go out for a nice dinner, only to forget making reservations.
And you've learnt the lesson that offering your friend a lift home can turn into a HUGE mistake.
You're easily amazed at how many different types of coffee you can order.
And the fact most cafes do ALL DAY BRUNCH!
Though you're never used to the fact your favourite cafe can easily have a 45 minute wait on weekends.
It took you a while to get used to all your incredible shopping options.
Though you still use the phrases "heading downtown" or "heading into town" when you talk about going into the city.
You eventually grow to love the bustling streets and city vibe.
