speaking of segues...

sorry kate... i know i gave you a hard time when you used it but i suppose it is a good one...

so i am now sitting in my room, the place i've lived for over 3 months that has my pictures on the walls, my stuff in the cupboard, my name on the door, and it's reached that point where i have to start thinking about packing up to go home. classes are officially over and reading week starts on monday to give everyone the chance to make up on the 13 weeks of work they have been ignoring. i have finished w/ aboriginal studies, have a final to sit for psych on the 5th and a take home exam for sociology due the 10th and then my semester is over. what the hell... i got off the plane last week at the earliest. i suppose i should update people on stuff that has happened since my last update:

for the rest of spring break i hung out at campus and went to a couple of fabulous parties at pubs. i'm not really sure what we did during the days but the time passed quick enough. one day pip and i went back to being 14 and looked at love quizzes/love calculators online which was absolutely hilarious. amy and i decided that iain needed a welcome back demonstration of our love so we decided to put balloons on his door but we only had water balloons and long thin balloons... this were quickly combined into a fairly phallic shape and left w/ a sign referring to how much we missed his 'uber massive schlong' (quite the random inside joke that i came into afterwards), which would have been hilarious if his parents didn't bring him back from break and see said balloons and sign. i also cut a significant amount of my hair off. either the week immediately before or after spring break i joined juggling club and met some of the most incredible people ever. i can now juggle 3 balls (kind of) as well as spin poi a little... even when they are on fire (yes, they are designed for that)!

there isn't much particularly blog worthy that's happened between then and now. last night we had the 'final fling' with the theme of "f" so there were a lot of really random and fantastic costumes as well as free drinks. i went as fancy in fuchsia... i.e. a good excuse to dress up pretty. i actually survived wearing high heels again, although barely. after waking up not feeling so great this morning, i headed to the beach for a surf lesson. how fucking awesome is that? i wasn't very successful, only getting up on my knees and not staying there for very long but it was a lot of fun... even if i was absolutely wrecked when i got home.

that brings you up to date on my life. i'm not sure what i have planned for the rest of the session (besides some school work) but i'll update everyone when i figure it out. there will also be another post very soon with access to my photo albums b/c i have been taking a ton of them this session just to keep you all posted on my life b/c some of this stuff you wouldn't believe if you didn't see it for yourself.

ummm I would like to inform you that the fact that you joined circus club in Australia while spitefully not joining my club at AU hurts me deeply, and I'm not sure we can remain friends.

That being said, I'm glad you're having a good time. Are you going to keep surfing? Maybe you can fufill my life goal of learning to surf that I was too unbalanced to achieve.

first of all i didn't spitefully not join, i just didn't join and i am probably going to if i have any time when i get back to AU. 2nd of all given how sore i am right now there is no way in hell i am going to keep up surfing. i tried it, i'm not very good, and that's that.
