Well I’m home now, 5 months early, but I’m “home”. My parents believed that i was going to be in New Zealand until November, which i was originally supposed to. I had registered for the calendar year abroad, but after talking with immigration and not being allowed to work 20hrs/week while studying i chose to shorten to one semester, I just didn’t inform my parents; the reaction…PRICELESS.Sorry, but i will not be uploading the video of it.
Being back home, its different, home hasn’t changed, but its not like New Zealand. In New Zealand i don’t remember looking at the news and seeing so much crime, judgement, hate. when you bought something for $10, it was $10 not like $10.30 or something. It wasn’t so crowded or ugly. So far I’ve seen California, I’ll be back home in Alaska on August 7th and see what its like up there. I don’t feel like i have had a hard time adjusting to life back here in the USA, but i could do with out the California desert heat. At the end of my study abroad i was feeling home sick, but now I’m feeling, missing New Zealand sick, i want to go back.
I got grades last night
A, B, B, C, not to shabby.
Well i think that’s it for me, i may go abroad for masters or PhD, but for now I’m going to finish studies in Alaska.
This is Aaron Rowbotham signing off.
