Home And Away: Why It Might Be Time To Consider Moving To A Brand New City

Those of us with wanderlust might consider moving to far and foreign lands fairly regularly. Not many of us will actually go along with the plans. There are plenty of reasons why you might want to stay near to your hometown. Family commitments, work commitments and education placements, for example. But for many of us, moving somewhere completely new could be full of benefits. So, is it time for you spread your wings?

Perhaps there are a lot of bad memories where you live or have grown up. Perhaps you’ve had a bad break up, a problem at work, a social bust up. There are plenty of reasons why you might want to leave a place and never look back. It is important that you analyse your situation thoroughly before making any drastic decisions. You shouldn’t be pushed out of somewhere that you want to stay. However, if you truly want to move, why not? You can make an entirely fresh start.

Are you struggling to find work in your desired sector? Do all of the jobs seem to be elsewhere? It might be time for you to moving interstate. If you are set on a certain career and the jobs are highly concentrated in a certain space, then go to it. Follow your dreams and don’t cast aside career aspirations just because they’re not convenient to you. You never know, you might prefer the place that you move to. You’ll be surrounded by like minded individuals, your career will flourish and you’ll be part of an entirely new social scene. Alternatively, you might gain much valued experience in the new area and then be able to move onto bigger and better things elsewhere.

A main reason that many people aged between 18 and 25 move is for education purposes. Universities and colleges each have specific specialities and reputations. Getting the best education for your money might involve moving from one place to another. But it will be entirely worth it. When you’re young, you want to expose yourself to as much of the world as possible. Embrace new cultures, social groups and environments. If you don’t like it, you can always leave and return to what you know.


Good old romance films have taught us that sometimes it is worth moving, near or far, for the sake of true love. Of course, we wouldn’t recommend selling all of your belongings, hopping on a plane and moving in with someone you’ve been on a couple of tinder dates with. But if you’re in a solid relationship and a move suits the both of you, then why not? It’s risky if you do the move. You risk moving and the relationship failing. But if the worst comes to the worst, you can always return to your original home city. Alternatively, you might fall in love with the place and just continue life there single. But let’s not be pessimistic. Perhaps the move will completely pay off and you’ll live happily ever after. You will never know until you try.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Here are some tips to help you out.

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
