Almost every time I go into the CBD, I walk through the Queen Victoria Building. When I first saw it, I thought it was some sort of government building. It is an imposing structure. But then I realized it was a shopping mall. Since it is air-conditioned, I often walk through it instead of around it–because the cooler air is a nice break from the summer heat in Sydney.
Plus, the tiled floors are beautiful.
There is too much to read, to look at, to surf, and to think. I am having a lot of trouble turning it off. I read the NYTimes, and then I read Lifehacker, and then I read some blogs, and then I read the Huffington Post, and then it just keeps going.
I’ve determined that I really need to prioritize. I need to simply draw the line somewhere. Maybe I won’t read everything that is interesting. Or listen to all that there is to listen to. But, I do also need to live my life. I can’t just spend all my time absorbing all of this information.
But damn, it is hard.
After reading about this place in a bunch of Sydney food blogs, I had to check it out. Reclaimed/reused/repurposed things can be so beautiful. The food was pretty good too.
