I was supposedta go to bed about three hours though (trying to get a good sleep routine going, nevermind the fact it's a holiday tomorrow) so I'll be out. Have a good one, all. And good luck with all that, Pearl!

Public transit at 4:30am? Wow, I'm impressed it runs then. In Melbourne, the trams effectively shut down between midnight (1am on Fri/Sat) and 5am.

As for safety, I'm wary enough myself, and I'm a guy who tends to stick to relatively safe parts of Melbourne and quiet tram routes! Though I've felt more safe ever since I got my cane, heh ...

I keep meaning to get my sleeping schedule back to something sane ... then quite by chance I find it's suddenly 2:15am rather than midnight without me even realising, so I've just given up on that for now.

Have a good one!

Sort of. I live on Staten Island (aka the Forgotten Borough of NYC), and transportation is awful out there, especially at the hour.

As for the internship, its for a local TV station.

See, I still find myself amazed by the fact there are 24 hour McDonald's and Hungry Jack's outlets in Melbourne. I grew up in small town New Zealand, where nothing opened on Sundays and probably only opened 9am-1pm on Saturdays. Then in Queensland, "late night Thursdays" means trading goes until 9:30pm rather than 6pm or so.

I still can't figure out who the fuck wants to go to Macca's at 4am, or how enough of them exist for it to be commercially viable to stay open.

I've lived in Melbourne long enough that I expect supermarkets and things to be open well into the evening, like to 9-10pm, but a small store open beyond 6pm on any night other than a Thursday would genuinely surprise me. Well, unless it's a restaurant, in which case I'd bloody well expect it to be open, heh.

My parents just got back from France, and they say everything - except the restaurants - are closed until about noon.

At most shopping centres, Thursday is late night shopping, usually to 9:30. I imagine it's some marketing gimmick devised after somebody saw Thursday had the worst sales figures of the week and thought it would be a way to rope more people into the shopping centres.

I lived in NYC for the first 27 years of my life and stepped foot on Staten Island once. To people in The Bronx, Staten Island is a world away.
