Good Riddance (Time of my Life)

February 21, 2009

So I thought it was about time to let you people know about my new adventures south of the border. My trip didn’t start the best. I found out my rear right indicator didn’t work, a bit of a problem when overtaking on the highway. It was a freezing, wet day and I didn’t enjoy having to use my arm out the window as an indicator. My sister and dad came down to help me move. I was pretty comfortable, perhaps just a little apprehensive throughout the day. When they left I kinda broke down a bit. My room is upstairs, and I kept venturing donwstairs to meet people but no one was ever down there. The first 3 hours alone were probably some of the hardest of my life, but I soon began meeting people and haven’t looked back since.

I originally thought campus life would be like it is in all the yank movies. Turns out that is about right. Everyone is friendly and everyone wants to drink. I went to the uni bar the other night. It was pretty fun. The lines to the bar were crap and the DJ was average but it was good to get among everyone and dance out the nerves.

A couple of things to finish. Classes start on Monday. I didn’t put my preferences in, and i feared a crappy timetable. Somehow though, I ended up with both Thursday and Friday’s off, which is pretty awesome. Nothing like a fowa day weekend. Also I have befriended a few ethnic friends. Their nationalities range from Swedish, Finnish, Japanese, Canadian, America, German and Mexican. It’s rad to have ethnic friends, though they all leave after one semester. I think I better meet some Aussie people to avoid being friendless again in another 14 weeks.

Stay cool!
