Great stuff Tom, looks great. I wouldn't get too down hearted about not meeting anyone just yet - I'm sure something will happen. Personally I would love to have a bit of time on my own!

Hope it works out for you.
I think I hate being indecisive.

Hi Tom, I moved to New York when I was 25 and didn't know anyone when I got there.  It took a few weeks to get to know people, but it does happen.  I started playing in a bar near my apartment and met a lot of friends through that.  They had a stand up night and then I got a bass playing spot with a band who hung out there and met a girl who played harp and sang, and went out with her a bit.  You'll be amazed how soon you will meet people.  

Enjoy yourself and don't worry - once you start to work you'll meet more people too.  The pictures look great, but this is summer there!  Winter is awesome if you ski or board.

 
So many pickups, so little time

Well things didn't work out exactly as I'd hoped and I had to fly back home on Sunday :( Couldn't afford another months rent without a job and everyone I applied to said I don't have enough experience - pretty much all the jobs were customer service type and the only experience I have of that is a summer at Tesco. It's alright being back here, great to see friends and family again and awesome to play my own guitars rather than the ones at open mic nights!

Bit disappointed but I'm hoping I can just get back into a job and save up enough to go back out to Whistler for the bike season again next summer  :D
