Monday, February 14


I was a good girl and went to orientation, from 9-3 with another session tomorrow from 9-12. (Snoozefest.) I get a day break and then on Thursday I get to enroll in classes from 9am-12. :) Then I'll be able to get some books and hit them HARD!
But, the good news is that I made a new friend today in orientation, unfortunately she is American. Her name is Amelia, and she is from Missoula, Montana. She goes to school out in Portland, Oregon and likes to surf, camp, and tramp. So, we're going out surfing on Wednesday when we don't have orientation or enrollment. I'm super excited.
We went downtown to get a phone today and eventually found a Vodafone place. My phone will arrive in 3 days and I am pretty excited because there aren't a lot of payphones around here. Going home was an adventure too. I managed to make it onto a bus, but it was the one going in the wrong direction. Stupid foreign country girl in a "big city". Sigh, so it took me 2 hours to get home when it should have taken me 20 minutes. :P My host mom and Japanese girl thats living with her laughed at me when I got home.

  1. Hi Grace,
    Thanks for posting entries as well as the wonderful photographs. You're in NZ surfing. I'm in Duluth baking bread. Hmmm.
    Much love!
