Since I last saw my parents in the flesh.
Since I took my first photo of Autumn leaves.
Since I registered for a library membership card.
Since I told myself my future’s changed for the better.
Since I started living with truly multi-cultural housemates.
Since I rolled my eyes at the seven types of tinned tomatoes.
Since I learnt that using three onions for every meal is a luxury.
Since I realised the grass isn’t greener on the other side.
Since I considered my creative writing seriously.
Since I began pursuing my own twisted path.
Since I appreciated currency conversions.
Since I left India and landed in Canberra.
