The day when I made Mt. Kosciuszko my bitch!

Tere-tere-tere!

Pole ammu kirjutanud, aga ega miskit erilist pole tegelikult juhtunud ka, vist. Lõpetasin oma Noorsootöö sertifikaadi märtsi keskel, seega sellega on nüüd ühelpool. Ja nüüd jätkuvalt tasapisi otsin erialast tööd, pealinnas on enamus töökohti (90%) Austraalia kodanikele ja kahjuks (õnneks?! ..kes ikka “Austraallane” olla tahaks, haha…) ma pole kodanik veel järgnevad 3 aastat. Nüüdseks tegelikult olen poole kohaga, lühiajaliselt veidi tööd teinud ühele rahvusvaheliselt tuntud mittetulundusühingule (nimesid nimetamata…) laste ja naisteõiguste alal. Aga see selleks, otsin jätkuvalt püsivat, täiskohaga töökohta. Aga eks iga asi omal ajal. Kiiret pole.

Lisaks olen veel käinud juba poolteist kuud püsivalt jõusaalis – sörgin tasakesi – praeguseks suudan juba pea 30minutit järjest sörkida, mis on minuarust suurepärane tulemus võttes arvesse, et lõpetasin keemiaravi ainult 4 kuud tagasi ja mõnel halvemal päeval suutsin ainult 100m tänava lõppu kõndida… Ma olen suhteliselt kindel, et mu niivõrd kiirele taastumisele on abiks olnud taimetoitlus – mul on nii palju energiat ja jõudu, ja mu veri on ideaalne. Seega jätke küsimused, et kustkohast ma valku ja kaltsiumit saan – taimedest 😉 Plants for the WIN!

Lisaks jõusaalile oleme üritanud nädalavahetustel matkamas käia ja viimaseid ilusaid sügisesi ilmasid nautida. Varsti pöörab talveks ja siis on Canberras öösiti isegi miinuskraadid. Uskumatu, eks!?

Aga ok, paar nädalat tagasi käisime Austraalia kõige kõrgemat mäge (Mt. Koscuiszko) vallutamas (2228m). Asub see umbes 2.5 tunni kaugusel autoga sõites, seega Austraalia mastaabis suhteliselt lähedal. Matk mäetippu oli edasi-tagasi 13km pikk ja kohati suhteliselt järsk… ja võttis aega umbes 3,5 tundi. Matka alguses olin suht, et ei tea kas suudan teha füüsiliselt, aga mida rohkem kõndisin, seda paremaks läks ja SUUTSIN – nii uskumatu kui see ka poleks. Isegi mu elukaaslane oli kohati palju väsinum kui mina, haha!

Ahjaa, 3 nädala pärast on järjekordne PET uuring ja arstivisiit, eks siis kuuleb kui hästi ma testide alusel taastunud olen. Üritan ikka endast peale seda viisiti märku anda ka.

Dadudaaa!

Ega eriti muud rohkematki pole öelda, nautige ilusat Austraalia loodust ja mu aina kiiremini kasvavat juust!!! –> seekord on pildid allpool, peale inglise keelset postitust.

Hello pretty people!

It’s been a while again, but not much has happened, so haven’t been bothered to write, really. Only real news are that I finished my Youth Work Certificate a bit over a month ago and I’m still continuously looking for a job. In this regard it’s really crap to live in a capital city without being an Australian citizen – relevant jobs (full-time, long-term) are pretty hard to come by. But that’s OK, something awesome will come up sooner or later. Meanwhile, I’ve been doing some women/children related “short-term part-time work” for a well-known international NGO. So I haven’t been going totally crazy…yet.

Also, I’ve been going quite regularly to the gym for the past 1,5 months now. I’m slowly jogging and doing some weight machines. I’m actually able to jog for 30minutes! It’s not that much for many, but taking into consideration that I finished chemotherapy only 4 months ago and some bad days was only able to walk for like 100m, I think I’m doing and have been recovering pretty well. I’m quite certain that eating plant-based diet has a HUGE part in my quick recovery. I feel so energised and happy, and I’m able to do so many things. And my bloods are good. So no questions “where do you get your protein/calcium” from, please. Though I’m happy to answer anyway – from plants. Just like you do – the only difference is that I don’t eat the middle-man, but get the good stuff directly from the source! 😉

In addition to my gym-sessions, we’ve also been trying to go and get “outdoorsy” during the weekends, to enjoy the last days of autumn. Soon it will be cold-cold-cold. Temperatures even go below 0 in Canberra during winter, surprising, huh?!

One of our latest trips was on top of Mt. Kosciuszko (2,228m), which is located around 2.5h from Canberra. Taking into consideration the long distances in Australia – it is very close to the Capital. The hike itself took around 3.5 hours (return) and was ~13km. Though the distance is not long, it was quite steep for many parts. So at the very beginning I was quite doubtful whether I would be able to make it (physically), but I did. And I think I’m awesome for managing it, and so PROUD of myself.  Plus the views throughout the hike were so amazing. My boyfriend had his camera with him, so he made loads of pictures, which I’m very much happy to share with you also. So please find them below, and enjoy the awesomeness of Australian nature!

I think it’s all for now. Oh, actually, I will be having another follow-up PET scan in 3 weeks and meeting my heamatologist the following day to see whether everything (and I) is going according to the plan, meaning very well.
