I found a Wallet on Sydney Train….

Yesterday, there was someone looking for me in my workplace. I wondered who it was. As soon as I saw, it was him………

Last week, I was returning back to my room on Sydney Train. I was about to sit on the middle of the upper compartment where I usually but today it was different scenario. There was a wallet on it and there was no one on that compartment. 

I was in Dilemma. Couple of thoughts rose on my mind.

Should I take the wallet with me? 

Why should I care?

What about giving it back to the respective person?

What if I will be suspected for the wrong doing?

What about being ethical? 

What if it was your wallet?

 

Well, those questions were hard to tackle at that moment but I said to myself that I need to return this wallet to the respective person. 

I picked up the wallet, put it in a side and wait for a moment to cool down myself.

After a minute, I just checked the wallet to figure out if there could be any contact address so that I could return it to its owner.

There was couple of bank cards, small notes, some cash, opal card, photo ID but none of them have any contact number. Well, I did found his living address. So, I was thinking about posting the wallet to that address.

In the next station, an old man came and started searching here and there. I watched him for some minutes and I felt like he was searching for that wallet.

Are you looking for your wallet? – I asked him.

‘Oh….. Thank you very much. I was so worried that I thought I almost lost it.”, he replied.

Further, he kept on saying,” I have so many important stuffs over here which would take me long time to recover hadn’t I not found it.”

Thank you for your Honesty. Now, my faith on human being has been raised.”

No worries.” I replied.

Could you please provide me your address so that I could send you some thank you as an appreciation.” – he

Thank you very much for that but I am OK. Just make sure that everything is fine with your wallet.” – I

As he insisted, I just gave him the address of my work place and he went away.

Thank you card from him.

He just gave me a warm hug. It felt like I have done so much for him. He took out a thank you card, wrote my name on it and gave me with deep sense of fulfillment.

And it made my day……….

One of the best day of my life.

A year in Australia

Time is continuous. It never stops even if we feel like that everything is as usual.

Let me Congratulate first…… My first year in Australia

It’s been a year in Australia and I feel like how fast the time passed away here in Australia. It feels like I was here a day before but the reality is it’s a year ago.

Wow, isn’t it amazing?

As time passed away, we keep on changing and so as the life changes. At this moment, I believe that I have really improved my life one step further in the sense like communication, public speaking, critical thinking, team work, networking, academic, leadership, time management, self awareness and so on. It’s not a one day change or effect. It’s continuous process and I have really worked hard to improve my interpersonal skills by involving in the Uni Activities.

Life is a journey – a journey where we keep on learning and improving ourselves better than before. Travelling to Australia and studying here has really given me a new vision in my life. As the culture between Australia and my country Nepal is completely different and it’s how we learn intercultural skills.

From Friends to Mate,

From How are you to Ha wa ya?

From all right to No worries

It’s how we get connected with Australian culture.

Well, it is really one of the productive year of my life. Hope this year will be more productive.

Sometimes it’s not all about getting paid, it’s about experiences.

It is around 12: 30 am. All the lights are off and I am lying on the bed ready to sleep. But something deep in my heart, I feel like I should share this in my blog. So, I got up, took my laptop and logged into my blog.

The past two days were one of the most productive days of my life ever since I came here in Sydney. Especially, today, I was more confident and more interactive that I have never been before. Truly speaking, I am an introvert.

When I go back to my past life, I felt like I really missed so much of thing due to being an introvert. I was basically a shy and really struggled hard to communicate with the stranger. The more important, I hardly shared my feelings with others due to which I was becoming so hard that it felt like there was no such feeling, no expression and moreover no Joy. But what I have learned in this two days is to connect with the people, to enjoy with the feeling and to communicate confidently. I know there is still more to learn and I am sure I will.

Yesterday and Today, there was an orientation session for the new international students in CQ university and I was a part of volunteering.

DAY 2 Orientation
DAY 1 Orientation
Events stall in Orientation

One of my friend asked me”, How much did Uni pay you?”

Me,” It’s free, a part of volunteering.”

Friend,” So, why are you wasting your time?”

It made me think for a while……… I didn’t get the answer at that moment.

But, today I have an answer.

Yes, the ability to work with the new people, the skill to communicate efficiently with the staffs and getting to know with the new peers that is what being paid and it is more than getting paid per hour.

Sometimes it’s not all about getting paid, it’s about experiences.

 

Time usually passed so fast that we eventually can’t realize how fast it passed away. I believe that university is not only the place to get the academic learning but it in fact is the place to learn the new skills for our career goals. It’s a part of learning experiences and I have a vision that every one of CQuni students will not only take academic certificates from CQU after they graduates but also take the learning experiences that values in their life ahead.
