O-week and toga party

Hi guys!
I’ve been up to a lot of stuff so that’s why I haven’t been updating.

I have to say that I just love this place! The people, the weather, the place. Everything is so nice!
Yesterday it hit me that I’m going to be studying in English, that is so freaking cool! Sitting in a lecture and I’m just like waiting for the subtitles to come – because I’m living my movie-life!

My student ID, I thought you weren’t aloud to smile.
O-week started on Monday, so I’ve been going to some lectures, getting free food. I was pretty beat the whole day though, until the evening.
You started to hear all the music around our accommodation, all the partying people – dancing while making food in the kitchen.
You see, where I live there’s two different student accommodations – I live at UniCentral and the other one’s Varsity, on opposite side of the road. Varsity – there were the party. Got there and played some volleyball with a lot of drunk people, so the ball was just kind of rolling on the ground or hitting people in the head!

Tuesday – more lectures and a lot of free stuff – & food. I love food. Snow-cones. Fairy floss – how cute is that?! Looking at some quidditch. And the best part about the day – toga partyyy! Had such a good time!!! Went over to our neighbors and joined the party, one of the girls over there is studying Nutrition – the same as me.
Then I just spent the night running around talking to a lot of awesome people. (and of course playing some volleyball)
Yeah, I’m definitely gonna love it here.

Too afraid of the Sharks to go any deeper.

After about two hours of sleep last night I feelt like shit, but this girl made me feel good again! When we think about it we have the same head and body, almost! Feelt so good talking to her today!
Went and did a little necessary shopping and eat some lunch. Nice catching up just the two of us!
I also boght me a thong. Yeah, you heard me! (It is what they call the flipflops here) 😀
Riding with Alle and Callum home later I saw my first spider, on my foot. Started kicking and screaming. But this was a really small one, it could have been worse! And sooner or later it’s bound to happen……..

In the evening it was time for bbq at the Uni, first time being there! Went with my new roomie who just arrived yesterday, a girl from Germany. Alina, So sweet! Meet a few other people there too, all too kind.
Got some hamburgers and went on a tour around the campus. So excited for tomorrow when welcome week begins! Gonna post a lot of pictures 😉

Even though it’s been raining from time to time the weather is so warm, and I just love it!!
So tired so gonna try and get some sleep.

– Night all my Lovely friends, I send you all a thought today! <3

My first Kangaroos

When I was a kid I had one bff, Alexandra, and we were really close until we were like eleven.
Haven”t seen her seens then, and yesterday I met her here in Australia. How cool is that? It’s been fourteen years and it was like no time had pass at all. Awesome! She and her boy Callum helped me go shopping yesterday. So now I can eat again!!

I’ve gotten this really bad cold and I feel like shit. When I was in Hong-kong everybody was wearing like masks and I got this brochure about Ebola. And I’m a hypochondriac. So pretty sure I got it.

 

I saw two baby Kangaroos yesterday! My first ever 😀 they were so cute! They live at the campus so I’m gonna see them everyday now!

I call him Glenn.

I’ve been here for almost a day now.
Jet-laged like crazy.

I was worried about getting of the plane in Australia with my bagage, but they didn’t even bothered that I had medicine with me! Just crossed it and of I go.

I’ve got two roomates. Jarrod and R-something. Maybe I should ask him again….
They thought I was like eighteen, which means I still got it.
They’ve scarred the living crap out of me. Snakes – Spiders – Sharks – Birds – Kangaroos – toads – and Drop Bear.

They like jump down on you from trees.(made up, but I’m not suppose to tell anyone.)
I’ve also heard that the deadliest snake lives on campus, up in the trees too. It only took me like 50 minutes to take a walk to the supermarket, which should have taken about 25. Busy having breathing-pauses between the trees. The lady at the bank sure got her self a good laugh when I told her that.
And all I saw was a snakeskin, and that pretty much was my limit. Don’t know how I’m gonna get through this, just gotta tough it up a little bit I guess.
But I’m taking baby-steps.

This is my new mate.
I call him Glenn.
Baby-steps 😉

Apparently there’s a cyclone comming, and it’s suppose a five, that is the worst one. So won’t be taking any long walks soon!

Yeah! And I’ve learnt stuff today. Like how to lock the doors from outside. And to pull away the blinds.
Happy day!

 

Epiphany

I had an Epiphany.
That’s my favorite english word. I don’t know why, but I’ve just embraced it.

“Epiphany – it can apply in any situation in which an enlightening realization allows a problem or situation to be understood from a new and deeper perspective.”

Right now I’m spending my time in Hong Kong, I arrived about one hour ago.
I’ve been so nervous. I’m pretty sure I smell like shit because I’ve been sweating like crazy.
This is my first time flying alone, you know.

Everybody who knows me pretty much know that I’m sort of clumsy some times.
But I’ve striked my limit today – When I arrived at Heathrow in London.
Going through the pass control is a lot harder than it seems, believe me. You maybe think it would be to just walk through the big entrence(the scanner), but instead you’re heading for a fence.  And the fence doesn’t open. And you try again. And a women have to Point you in that direction of the scanner. Yeah, you get starred at. By everybody in the same line.

 

Hitting the toilet seemed like a good idea too. No. The door gets stuck and I’m like “What to do no? Panic? Scream?”

-“Halllooooo… Does anybody hear me? I’ve been locked inside.” It took a few minutes but the working lady got me out eventually.

I’ve also been enlighted about that the chinese New Years Eve is on this thursday.
Is Hong Kong in china? Because the girl at the flight gave me a strange look when I asked if it’s a big thing all over China, and she said she didn’t know if it were, but it was in Hong Kong.
The conversation pretty much ended there. Because I couldn’t stop wondering Why I didn’t pay attention in school.
