NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 24 February 2008 | Views [635]

nz is just amazing. we missed the last bus (at 5 pm - imagine...) and tried to get a cab (like 30 other people who wanted to go to the rugby match) and somehow we ended up getting a free ride on a uni bus who took people from bryant hall (student dorm on campus) to town. we don't live in bryant hall except for lauren, my american friend from arizona, but whatever ;-) well, we got the tickets and then i saw my first real rugby match - nevermind the one i saw at trinity college in dublin. it was chiefs agains the waratahs, and the chiefs won. must have been the team colours - black, red and yellow, haha. i still don't know the rules, but it was fun anyway. first nz-must-do i can cross out on my list - i saw a real rugby match! afterwards we took the nightrider back to my place after buying beer at a liquor store on the way. what can i say?! there were three different house parties going on in my street, but we were definitely the loudest. i am sooo sorry i missed the fight where one guy's nose got broken, he was bleeding all over the house and kelly's sister put it back into place... there must have been 50 or 60 people around, all drinking heavily (it's like a popular sport here - who gets wasted first), it was just crazy. and there are more parties like that coming up. in april there are going to be 3, roger's graduation plus mine and jenny's birthday. don't know if i want to go through that whole cleaning-up thing so many times ;-) 

tomorrow uni starts, i am still not sure about which papers i wanna do. i changed them 3 times already... luckily i have 2 weeks left to work that out. 

the house is so quiet right now, it's strange. even the tv is turned off. it was a bit too much for everybody yesterday i guess. nevermind that they started drinking again this morning while we were cleaning up ;-)
