Day 49?? (8/31)

Sorry for not posting like I should… It’s been a hectic couple weeks and I still have a lot more hectic weeks ahead of me.  It’s not like Marist, or any school that I’ve attended, here and I’m not used to the way it works here at all.

On a lighter note…. Leaving for Brisbane tomorrow!  I’m pumped!  I’m only going to be there for like 24 hours, but it’s the first time I’m actually leaving the Surfer’s Paradise/Southport area, so it should be nice.  There’s 30+ of us going and we’re staying in two different 20 person rooms at a hostel.  Never been to one before so that should be fun.  I will definitely be taking pictures/videos to post for you guys. So thumbs up there.  But yea, it’s Friday: the end of week 6 of school; week 7 for me in all.

Day 44? (8/25)

So the day is here… the day that I lost track of how many days I’ve been here and don’t see the benefit of counting anymore. 

So let’s see, I went on a pub crawl last night.  We go to 5 different pubs/clubs and spend 90 minutes at each.  You get a free drink when you walk in and they have little contests and games for the contestants humiliation and the crowds enjoyment.  Unfortunately, when you volunteer, they don’t tell you what the game is until after everyone is up on stage.  Needless to say I volunteered.  Name of the game?  Give a lap dance to a girl competition!  We’ll leave it at that, but I walked away with $20 so no complaints.  So $20 in 2 minutes…. That’s like $600 an hour.  I could see myself surviving off of that for.

Day 31 (8/12)

In approximately 14 hours, I will have been here for a month (13th to 13th).  In approximately 14 hours, I will have 3 months, and 5 days left here.  Just some figures I drew out in my head, that I figured I’d share.

This weekend was fine.  I walked 6.5 miles to Surfer’s Paradise on Friday at midnight.  Should’ve been a little shorter, but I got lost.  The worst part is, I got there to find out that no one else was there.  Luckily, I caught the 2:00am bus to bring us partly there.  The buses don’t usually operate that late.  They stop at like 10:30, but for some reason, this random bus was driving by as I was passing the bus stop.  Saturday I went with Shannon, Abby, Lacee, and Sarah to Surfer’s.  Luckily this time there were people there haha.  And today, Sunday, I went to Waxy’s and Melbas.  I got a drink, 2 steaks, and 3 orders of fries for $11.  I actually got 3 steaks.  Whenever I go to Melbas, the lady always gives me an extra steak.  I’m not complaining though.  Free food :). 

So now I’m home,  it’s 11:11 at night and I’m on my way to bed so I can wake up for class at 9am tomorrow.  Maybe you’ll get a video tomorrow if I have time and something to say.

As for now, I’ll leave you with “The Currents” (something I’m going to start trying out) and go to bed.  Goodnight!
