As Melbourne enters its 253rd day in lockdown, Garry Gale is pretty sure he fucked up.
Back in 2019, it had seemed like such an easy call to take the MLS offer over USyd’s. Melbourne was the cool city – Sydney, the place for people who wear boat shoes.
Not to mention the prestige. Every man and his dog knows MLS is Australia’s top ranked law school. And if you don’t know, it’s JD students will be sure to tell you.
But it doesn’t take a law degree to know a lot has changed since 2019.
Since moving from Sydney to Melbourne, Gary has now spent two-thirds of his degree online.
“It just feels like a bit of a stitch-up, y’know?” he told our De Minimis reporter this morning.
“We did everything right, but now Sydney gets to open back up again. Before us. I can’t even doomscroll instagram to pass the time anymore. Do you know how it feels to see my old friends share beers at the pub and then kick on the beach? Let me tell you – it’s not fucking great.”
More to come.
