Coming Home

Today is the day I return home. Very bittersweet. I will miss my host family so so much!

Louise surprised me again and had the fire department show up and carry me! She is so silly.

I hope I get to return to Australia again one day, it was very much like another home.

Here I come Kansas!

I turn 20 today! Louise threw me my first and only surprise birthday party. It was the best! Well, except the fact that I missed a final and will have to make it up. Bah military time! But oh well, it is time to celebrate!

Relaxation at it's best

Today I had a two hour break between classes in which I watched a live band while sitting in the grass, watching a mechanics demonstration of how much their bridges could build, browsed standing shops and just sat and enjoyed life.

Had a end of the year celebration for my exchange here, I'm going to miss it here so much. It is so relaxed, beautiful and wonderful.

Going to see a stage performance of Rent this saturday and whale watching the next. :)

Saturday Morning Test

Marketing. Yuck. I went to bed around 2am to wake up at 7 to get ready for my test. Caught the train, and upon arriving at Wollongong, realized the normal buses don't run on weekends. I asked a girl sitting next to me which one went to campus, she said 55A. So we got on 55A only to discover that if in fact, does NOT go to campus. So getting after after a quarter mile, we made the 25 minute walk to campus to talk the test. Now, I left thinking it was cool, so i wore jeans and a jumper (sweater) and it instead, turned out to be boiling. So got to the test, which lasted 1.5 hours. We had to stay the WHOLE time. On a saturday morning. It took me 30 minutes and I slept the rest of the time. Then, had to wait in line to check my name of a list. The most unorganized test I've ever took. Oh, I forgot to mention I did not eat anything this morning and it was now 11:45, I was starving. So i had some lunch at the uni and made the walk back to the train station. Got there at about 12:30 and a train going to Bulli didn't come until 1:30. But, there was a train to the town one stop north in 5 minutes so I took it. So, i thought walking in the hot, with a sweater, jeans and flip flops was a good idea. I walked the hour it took to  get back home to Bulli. What a marvelous Saturday.


Me and my host family, minues Tayla who is going to Norfolk Island with Girl Guides, will be traveling up to Duboo to the zoo and some caves all this next week. Should be fun!
