I’ve been an honorary Victorian for around four months now.
I’ve consumed my weight in coffee every day, complained about the weather every chance I get (even though it’s really not that bad. Seriously — go to Tasmania and tell me about the weather), and executed my first ever hook turn in the city without being honked at.
There are some things that will forever divide me from the ‘true Melbournians’ though, such as visiting the State Library of Victoria. I’m assuming the State Library is something every Victorian child visits at some point in his or her school-hood (like the Melbourne equivalent of the Cadbury Factory tour for Hobart kids), but for me, my camera, and my small-town expectations this was on a whole ‘nother level of awesome.
