It was a big decision to say ‘no’ to the Australian National University’s Arts offer, but Chloe Kerney (name altered), from Sydney’s northern beaches, couldn’t bear live so far from the coast. As a result, the second semester starter hasn’t looked back from her decision to come south to the wind capital of Australia until Tuesday 10:30AEST.
‘After Europe, I just wanted to work for a few months before I came to uni. Ended up spending most of that money at shark bar though haha (sic).’ Chloe said.
‘I love life here, it’s so good for Instagram! But this morning I had to park all the way down some hill, because the ticket booth at Uni would have only let me to get all day parking if I took out a mortgage.’
After consulting Google Maps, Chloe uncovered a situation all too familiar for anyone who has spent more than a month or two in Wollongong. It would have been a shorter walk to the University of Wollongong’s main campus if she had simply walked from the two bedroom home her parents bought her.
‘I guess you live and you learn,’ Chloe said, displaying a positive demeanour despite missing her compulsory tutorial and probably tech failing.
‘I learned that the best attitude is just to just go with the flow. Found that out after I accidentally ate one of the brownies in Amsterdam.’
‘At least it was a good workout.’
