Lauren I have met you several times and your family are really nice people and your mother works with my wife. Lauren your hairdressing skills are good as well. Obviously I dont know you well and you came over as pleasant and friendly. However I have read your posts on here and you seem to very bitter in your youthful age and there is me thinking that it was just oldies at 40 lol. I wish all the luck to your nice family and you and your adventure to Brisbane. Nevertheless Lauren, life is what you make it, you can still be lonely in a big vibrant city like Brisbane, where it is a lot more expensive and the weather not as good. People on this site don't know you Lauren and just go off the the words you use in your posts, which covey that you seem bitter and angry and very opinionated, but you cannot handle the criticism back becuase your life in Adelaide is not what you was expecting. As you get older you will realise your home is where your hat lays, you need to make an effort and take time to weigh the pro's and cons of a place. Because where you are from you had everything on your doorstep and lots of people and action packed. Australia is not like that, it is a much bigger place and things are not on your doorstep and leaping out of you. Life is what you make of it, just because Adelaide is a quieter city it does not mean that it is boring and people are small minded. With maturity comes wisdom and wherever you settle Lauren you will not be happy unless your wisdom prevails. Goodluck!
