A – ADAPT
You’re in Australia now, so it may take you some time to adapt to it. Depending on where you’ve come from there will be different things you have to adapt to. Time difference, climate, change of pace, having to budget… etc, it’s okay to let yourself take some time to adapt to these things, but from experience it’s easier to embrace it all and try to get used to it as soon as possible. Every second counts in Australia!
