There is a quote that goes something like this... "The only constant in life is change itself" - maybe someone can correct this for me.

I am doing my taxes after a hiatus of FIVE YAERS!! One of the (many?) benefits of being a student was not having to worry about anything in the real world!

When I went to lodge my tax return I kept getting errors. It kept telling me that my personal details didn't quite match. Eventually I got locked out of the system and had to speak to a real person to sort it out.

When I was speaking to the really nice tax lady, she asked me a few questions and I told her that all my details needed to be changed on the records. Everything about me on paper has changed over the last 5 years. My name, title, address, living arrangements, phone number, financial details - almost everything!

I was thinking about how I am almost a different person now. Physically, mentally and socially. I was a little bit taken aback by all the changes and in a way it gave me an opportunity to look back at what I was and what I have become.

I guess in another 5 years, if I look back, I will think about how much I have changed yet again...
