Time Keeps Rollin

I haven't blogged for a while but for good reasons...nothing has been happening really. Or it could be that after snorkeling the reef, hiking through the rainforest, and holding koalas, that my day to day in Sydney seems average. Nevertheless, I've been in over my head with school. I don't see myself taking stellar grades back to Oregon. Not due to laziness but getting good marks is tougher here. Seriously. I wrote an eleven page paper on the relationship between genitalia and body size of male octopuses. And now I'm on to a paper on how to sustain biodiversity in Australia. After I turn it in, it should be smooth sailing until finals.
I've still been coming to Anthony's on the weekend. Having 'heaps' of fun and still doing awesome things. Yesterday we spent the day on Harry's boat in the harbor and at Harry's pool which is of course harborside. I had a girlfriend, Anita, come over to Anthony's last night and we had a slumber party. We baked cookies, talked about boys, and giggled a bunch. Been to the beach a bit, cooked some yummy things, and other than that I've just been doing uni work.
There was a red bellied snake in Anthony's driveway the other night...poisonous. James ran over it with the car till it popped...like a balloon, kind of disturbing.
I've heard from Adam. Jake Loveland just left to the MTC and will be going on to Brazil. How exciting, right?
Just heard that mommy is coming to see me!!!! I am so happy!! Shes coming after exams...December 1st and staying for ten or so days. I think we will head south...to Canberra, Melbourne, Ballarat, and possibly over to Tasmania for a few days. I just miss my mom. I miss being someones baby.
I'm excited to have some freedom after exams. There is still so much I want to do in Sydney. Even if I had a month of freedom, I dont think I could see all of Sydney that I want to. Oh well, guess I'll have to come back !
My computer is officially toast. I'm delaying fixing it til I come home because it will entail a good chunk of change. So thats why I havent uploaded any recent pictures...sorry. But if youre lucky, you will get a slideshow when I get home!

That sucks your computer is toast! What, did you take it on your travels? Have you ever read up on schools outside the U.S.? Australia is not alone, most of Europe has more advanced schooling. Plus, eventhough you've studied hard this year, it sucks to realize that creative wording will not get you through every project....you gotta actually work hard. You miss being someone's baby...hahaha! You should write a paper on that, so I understand what that means. I looked up a bunch of stuff on Cairns, and wouldn't ya know they're big on UFO sightings. Someday Chris.....someday. Love you!
