Leaving on a Jet Plane

by on Jun.25, 2014, under info

Hello my wild, crazy, fun, amazing Tunestars!!! It’s Bec here….for the very last time….can you believe it!!??

If you don’t already know….after 4 years of working at Tune-Up, I am spreading my wings and jetting off around Europe and America before setting myself up in the UK to start a new life on the other side of the world (for a couple of years anyway!)

So on that note, it seems this is goodbye for me!! Don’t get your tissues out and start smudging your mascara yet though because I don’t see this as a sad time….in fact it’s a very happy, exciting and exhilarating time for not only me but for all of the Tune-Up crew and all of you! The reason I say this is because CHANGE should always be viewed as a positive thing. It’s what keeps us going through life. We are not trees; we can’t stay rooted in the same place forever. Hence why I am digging up my roots and heading on out of here. And for you guys, change will come in the form of some gorgeous new Tune-Up girls and a slightly different culture at Tune-Up…because as you all know, Tune-Up’s culture is determined by our amazing staff and I promise you….all of the girls here new and old are INCREDIBLE and they are going to help Tune-Up evolve for the better. And I have a feeling Kats is going to come back with a new perspective on life and his business so I’d say there are exciting things to come from that wise and wonderful man!

With only just over a week until I pack my bags and leave Australia, I’ve started conducting a very detailed bucket list of MUST-DO’s when I go overseas, so I thought I’d share them with you all, and maybe when you all come in to say goodbye this week, you can help me add a few more!:

  • Eat a baguette while riding a bicycle through Paris
  • Have a spaghetti fight in the middle of the street in Italy
  • Have a real-life sword battle at the Coliseum in Rome (much like the one between Prince Oberyn and The Mountain in Game of Thrones…minus the horrific death)
  • Steal the Mona Lisa and sell it for squillions to help fund my extravagant new life when I return to Australia.
  • Hunt down Taylor Swift in America and become best friends with her.
  • Swing from the top of the point on the Empire State building like King Kong.
  • Make snow angels in Central Park in NYC

While only one or two of these are realistic, I’m going to try my best to tick them all off my list!

So on a final note, I want to thank you all for making my time at Tune-Up SO unbelievably enjoyable. It’s YOU guys that have made this job so rewarding. Nothing makes me more happy thank knowing that I’ve helped make someone’s night. That’s a feeling I’m really going to miss…

And a big thank you to the amazing Tune-Up girls…the ones who were here in the beginning and the ones who are here to see me go. I have made some life-long friends from this job (some who I’ll even be meeting up with overseas) and it’s rare to find a job like this where you can make friends who stay in your life for a long time.

And last but not least, I owe the world to the one and only Kats-man. He took me in like a lost stray pup 4 years ago and contributed to so much of my growth throughout that time! I don’t know what I’ll do without his crazy but incredible logical life metaphors. I know I’ll still be emailing him for his insights on the many life decision I have ahead of me. Haha.

So with that, I have no more words left in me so I’ll be a cliché’ and finish with lyrics from a song….

In the words of John Denver:

I’m leavin’ on a jet plane, Don’t know when I’ll be back again. Oh Tune-Up, I hate to go”

Bonjour Tunestars!! It’s two of your favourite Senorita’s Bec and Georgie!

Why is it, you ask, that we are speaking in such exotic EUROPEAN languages??? Ummmmm because within the next month we’re BOTH going to…EUROPPPPE….OMGGG!

A wise soul once said “The world is your oyster”….which is a saying we still do not understand but we are both doing exactly that…making the world our goddamn oyster. Georgie’s overseas venture starts on Friday as she abandons us here at Tune-Up to embark on a 6 week Contiki. Then on the 5th of July, Bec will be trailing closely behind to get a taste of that sweat Euro summer!

We all know what you’re thinking…how will Tune-Up carry on without these wild, crazy, vivacious gals around??? And the answer is…it won’t. There is no way it could possibly live on after we’re gone. In fact we’re certain the bar will simply spontaneously combust and turn to ashes….Ok soooo maybe not. But we’re certain there will be a huge gaping hole without us around.

So to help you all get through this tough time we’ve devised some survival tips for you:

  1. Drink more…it will help numb the pain that you feel knowing that we’re absent.
  2. Sing lots of travel-related songs like “Leaving on a Jet place” or “Around the world” so you can live through these songs and imagine you’re holidaying with us.
  3. If you feel like crying…just let it out. It’s healthy to cry
  4. Make your friends dress up as us so that it seems like we’re here partying with you
  5. And last but not least….keep reminding yourself that some day you WILL see us again!

We promise to take LOTS of photos and rub them in all of your faces!! We have to admit that we are going to miss all of our fave Tune-Up customers. Sing for us, drink for us and remain merry without us around. We know our other AMAZING, fun girls will take good care of you in our absence!

Ciao for now!!

Bec and Georgie
