It is I, Georgina Glass, and I’m stressed out of my mind. Ever since I came to Melbourne I’ve been totally flat out, and it’s making me feel really guilty because my Australian boyfriend keeps wanting me to meet his family. I swear, I’m not trying to brush them off! I’m not even nervous. I’d love to meet them. But last time I tried, I got an emergency booking for a girl who needed her eyebrows done for a school social, and then I had to pull an all-nighter to get my project in sustainable commercial energy storage in on time. I tell you what: my second degree might be online, but they don’t pull any punches.

It’s good to know I’ll have a couple of career options available once I finish, though. Hard as it is I’m really lovin this degree in solar power and commercial energy usage. Just feels like I’m becoming part of a sustainable future, you know? My parents taught me to help people, and I finally found some way I can help everyone, even if I’m just a team player in some great energy breakthrough. Did you know that industrial solar energy could potentially provide up to 50% of a company’s energy needs by 2025, if they invest in panels today? I mean, barring some unnatural cloudy weather, solar power in Australia has a really bright future, no pun intended.

Ugh, see, this is what I mean. I get so wrapped up in what I’m doing, and my amazing boyfriend hardly ever gets to see me. And then we meet up and I have to zip my lip for talking about issues with Melbourne based commercial energy monitoring. I want to know about HIS needs, and HIS day, and HIS dreams. A relationship works two ways!

Okay, that’s it: I’m clearing my schedule for a family dinner. I want to show him that I really care about his life and want to be a part of it. You know, just good girlfriend stuff.
