Nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down
I learned something new today:
Some days I will hate Australia. Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but I do hate public transportation. I did not have school today, yet I went to school anyways to check my email and drop a class (ballroom dancing did not measure up to my expectations). The sky looked dark and I thought it might rain. I was right... it did rain. Actually, it did not rain at first. We walked from school to the bus stop without any problems. As soon as we got to the stop and realized we had 20 minutes to wait for the bus, the SKY fell. The rain poured and poured. Although I had an umbrella, it did not cover all of me. We stood in the pouring rain for 20 minutes. Every time a car drove by it SPLASHED us. I think people just thought it would be fun to SOAK the poor, cold Americans. By the time the bus came, I was about to chase a car down and beat up the driver. Why would people drive so close to the side of the road!?! JERKS! If I ever see people on the side of the road in the rain, I will make sure I slow down and get on the other side of the road.
It seems like this week has been a little harder than last week. Suddenly the realizations of the changes I have to make are coming to the forefront. I am here for school, not just fun. I am very excited about learning, but at the same time I want to experience Australian culture. Turning down fun experiences for school work is hard. I would rather spend all my time submerged in Australian culture, but that is not my only purpose for traveling to the other side of the world. I am sure I will learn much more about Australian culture by studying the culture, but I wish we could have class on the beach! (WISHFUL THINKING) Well, I have chapel so I'll update more later!!!
