Sweet as Bro... "Sweet as": Second most common phrase in New Zealand after "awesome". Said when someting is rather good instead of just "good" or "OK". Often followed by "bro".


NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 19 February 2008 | Views [663]

forget what i wrote this morning, it's all gone (sun is even shining):

I got a room!!!

in a flat together with 6 other ppl, 4 girls and 2 guys. flat's not the tidiest or nicest, but very close to uni and very cheap. just 75 NZ$ per week plus expenses. on saturday we're having a housewarming, meaning everybody invites all his friends and we party. sounds sooo great! few things i learned searching for a room:

1. carpet is nice, not bad, cuz it's warm in winter

2. wooden floor sucks

3. central heating?! what's that?!

4. nice outside - bad inside (just paint over the mould...)

5. pets and smokers are on the same level (hairy and smelly)--> jenny's favourite ;-)

so, i will try to get a matress somewhere, so i won't have to sleep on the ground, and then move out of this stupid hostel. ok, hostel is fine, really, maybe the best i've ever been in. so, if you get to hamilton one day: stay at "eagles nest". the tv is too noisy cause the old lady (owner of eagles nest) can't hear properly and it's on the whole day, but everything else is great. showers are clean and most important: have hot water 24/7 --> not that common!

but i am glad to move out finally. it's time to really start my student's life here. next important thing now: buying a car!
