Halfway done ALREADY?!!!

Hey guys!

Just a quick little update while I run around throwing heaps of clothes and swim suits into a bag for our week adventure in Mooloolaba and etc. for Easter break! Sorry that I’ve been away awhile but time really does fly when you’re having fun traveling & sightseeing {errr…I mean studying}. It’s about that time for MIDTERMS which are surprisingly different from what I’ve experienced in the US. It’s much more relaxed in that it’s more independent preparation and the lecturers do not get on you all the time about it. Also, my midterms just so happen to be AFTER the mid-semester break which isn’t the greatest. To apologise for my LONG absence I’ve been working on putting together a video of my first two months here in Australia for you all to see! It’s not quite finished yet but I will get right back on it when I return from my holiday away from a holiday {Sunshine Coast with NO WIFI=peaceful}.

In the past month I’ve been to Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast which is super touristy but also lots of FUN! We celebrated Leigh’s 21st at the Hard Rock Café (living up to our ‘Americanness’) and were probably WAY over excited to see American bacon in our meals hahaha.

It’s been raining quite a bit lately so I have quite the collection of movie tickets because it’s something fun & cheap to do on South Bank. We had a great Easter Brunch today with heaps of celebrations, french toast and of course CADBURY!!!

A word about uni life at UQ: They love to give out group assignments and make you collaborate with all different people. At first I was really hesitant to work with all Australians but it has turned out to be really good connections and I’ve made some new friends who invite me home to real Australian meals!

EXCITING NEWS TO COME: Me and my friend Maddie bought tickets to Cirque Du Soleil: Totem coming in just a few short weeks and also booked a sneaky little weekend getaway in about 5 min of planning to Melbourne!!!

Pictures will come with the video I post as soon as I get back into Brissy the end of the week!

Much love to you alll xxx!!!
