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".

random catch-up!

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 10 May 2008 | Views [595]

i am sorry, i didn't keep up with this blog, but there was just too much going on and i didn't have time for anything. yesterday i finally handed in my last assignment for the next three weeks, deep beath. i also sorted out my practicum. of course i messed up and didn't sign into a special paper to do that. so i was busy running around campus, phoning people and getting signatures and finally i was able to add that paper and drop shakespeare, great! shakespeare was just too much work and we would have had to act a scene alone or in a group, and since all of the people in my tutorial are pretty, well... i just didn't wanna do it. so that's it! dropped the paper, won't have to go to the tutorials anymore and just do the lectures out of interest. best thing that could happen. except, that this paper will appear as failed on my account. maybe. we'll see.

next thing: my hair is finally dreaded. after i ran around for about a month with only 20-30 dreads i did the rest whenever i took a break from writing my papers. now i might have about 70 in total, we still need to count them ;-) i am not used to them yet. every morning when i look in the mirror i get a fright about this huge mass of hair on my head ;-)

what else? well, i am pretty broke after the south island trip, i don't know how i'll manage in australia. i might change my flights again and come back earlier, the problem is, that there's this world youth day in australia, so there are NO FLIGHTS the whole of august. crazy. maybe i'll be back in july then ;-)

tonight we're having a flatparty (again, what shall i say?) for lucy, jenny's sister that moved in with us now. jenny and her are sharing jenny's room now and lucy will move into mine when i leave. that's pretty cool, the rent is going down and i have sb to take my room when i leave, so i don't have to worry about finding someone. and it doesn't really matter whether there are 7 or 8 people living here. 

have to stop now, i am meeting with maike to go to town to get my boots fixed. i actually have wet feet all the time cause my heels are down after i walked the south island in them. haha. they were not made for that ;-) 

btw, don't tell me about the great weather ur having in germany right now, here it is raining the whole time and it is soooo cold that i can actually see my breath while sitting in the lounge watching tv. crazy. i miss central heating. u guys don't know how lucky you are, seriously!
