The Cirque moves out of town

It was something that was going to happen.

I knew it was going to happen, but even with this expectation it was still hard to say goodbye.

After three months of Cirque fun, the party was over.

"Dralion" moved on as all good Cirque shows do and headed off towards Canberra.
It was a fantastic time.

I won't forget the fun I had and the friends I made.

But I am still left incredibly sad by it all.

This brief time is finished and it is even more depressing to know that it won't ever return.
Thankfully I have some great memories from the experience.

Moonlighting in the Sun

Working two jobs hasn't been easy.

The hours have been crazy and rushing from one job to the one at night has left me fairly tired.

It's worth it though. After all, Cirque du Soleil is a great place to have fun!

It's also been good to see some old faces.
My old boss from "Varekai" had shifted over to "Dralion", so once again, he was bossing me around and telling me what to do.
Just wandering around the site is a good experience with all of the music and the colours creating a constant cheer.
I even had a better uniform this year than the last with the logo having being enlarged.
Jeff was on "Dralion" too! He was one of the old "Varekai" crew as well.
Moonlighting with Cirque du Soleil is a tiring experience.

But it's definitely worth it.

Course of Chinese

I've been taking Chinese in my spare time.

My Mandarin is awful so I decided a while back that it needed improving.

Slowly but surely I'm making progress. It isn't much progress.... but it's still something.

After an entire semester with the same class, our teacher was going home to Beijing.

She had been fantastic to all of us. She had put in lots of extra work and taken a genuine care in our development.

We needed to say goodbye to her properly.
A nice dinner was what was needed.

And since she was going back to China, we decided against more Chinese food.
Instead, we went with Spanish. We couldn't really think of anything less Chinese. It seemed fitting enough....
