I just found out who my roomies are :) Luckily, I already know one of them from my orientation group. The best part of it all? Finding out that I’m in the same building as Neekolas!!!!! :D
Jessica! :D You have no idea how much I miss you =\ That’s why I’m going to the rally on Friday with your brudda! Hahah hopefully you have time to catch up
There are a lot of things I love about him, but if you’re just asking for one then it’s that he cooks for me whenever I come over. Least favorite things, or one of them anyway, is when he thinks he’s cool :P
It’s not a burden. They’re my friends and if they need me, then I’ll be there for them. I’ll admit that sometimes they can be really oblivious to the problem and it annoys me to no end when they don’t listen to me, but I would never give up on them. That’s just how I’ve always been I guess :)
NO! I’m not risking sending it to you through mail and it ending up lost :P
Greetings from Sydney, mates! My first time into the city was the least bit boring. Over here, they depend heavily on public transportation and what better way for me to experience what Australia has to offer by riding the CityRail, the #1 source of transportation. From where I started, it’s about 45 minutes tops to get to Town Hall. Town Hall is where all the major shops are located and the size of it is a bit overwhelming. I didn’t get a chance to buy anything since I only exchanged, what I thought was a decent amount anyways, of US dollars to AUS dollars. Sadly, it wasn’t enough. Although the AUS currency is only about $.10 higher than our own, everything here is so much more expensive! Probably has to do with how they run their wages here. At least there isn’t any tax :D Anyways, after Town Hall, I hopped back onto the railway and headed over to Circular Quay where I would finally get the chance to see, first-hand, Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. The bridge was just another bridge to me (for my architectural fanatics out there, please excuse my ignorance), but the Opera House was really beautiful! It was definitely one of the biggest highlights of my day. After I was done taking pictures and finishing up all the other touristy things I had to do, I grabbed some McDonald’s (I can’t seem to shake off my American ways) and just observed. First off, I have never seen so many joggers in my life than I did today. Second, everyone here has a great sense of style. Third, it seems everyone in the city comes out here for their lunch breaks.
I could tell you more, but those were really the most important things I did today. It’s currently 12:40AM, August 5th here, meaning 7:40AM, August 4th in the states, so I must now bid you goodnight/goodmorning as I try to reset my internal clock.
