I am now officially a temporary Australian resident :) which means I can get a job and go to school! I got the e-mail today confirming that my residency has gone through. The only down side is that they will not be fast tracking my permanent residency. That alright though, apparently they start counting the two years from when you first apply, which was last August. So it's been almost a year already and I can handle one more year of waiting (considering they told me last I called that it can take up to another year for just the temp!) So Bran and I are happy campers :D.
On a different note, in about 36 hours, i'll be giving my brother a great big hug :D!!! So exciting!
