Jessica: Birthday girl

I am alive! And back from vacation, and how appropriate because woohooo! Today is my birthday and I am finally 21! Even though everyone says that it isn’t that great, I’ve been so pumped, even though I’ve been legal here since I arrived.  Liberated is the way in which I would describe my feelings, since I am legal to drink anywhere in the world now!  Luckily, I don’t have class today since it is a Monday.  However, I do have a test or midterm tomorrow in my Earth Science Class.  I’ve […]

Beau: Great Ocean Road

These pictures are from my trip to the Great Ocean Road, located West of Melbourne that starts past Geelong (the state of Victoria’s second largest city) in Torquay The road was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932, and is the world’s largest war memorial; dedicated to casualties of World War I. It is an important tourist attraction in the region, which winds through varying terrain alongside the coast, and provides access to several prominent landmarks; including the nationally significant Twelve Apostles limestone stack formations. My group of U.S. friends and […]

Jessica: Surf camp

Surf camp was AWESOME!  But I am so extremely sore.  So Friday was when we left.  They guys showed up about an hour late, they had gotten lost apparently and the drive took them longer than they expected.  Then it decided to rain obnoxiously just about the whole time there.  And we had to travel on this past that was twisty and turny, literally at some points you could only go 25 km it was that sharp.  Thought I was going to die!  Anyways, got there over an hour late […]

Jessica: Fair Frenzy

It was super fun going to the what I would call the Canberra Fair.  Reminded me a lot of the Tyler County fair.  Very cool, being outside, people watching, looking at the animals, getting dirt on my feet.  A lot like home, it was a nice little aside.  Us girls hung out with Ryan’s mom all day and his younger brother and his friends.  Made me laugh when we were told that we looked 16 and not 20.  I’m thinking that was there little  pitch to try and put us […]

Jessica: turn that frown upside down

I was really struggling today.  Basically having a pity party for myself.  Classes are somewhat difficult because I feel like I don’t have any idea what is going on and because school has always come naturally to me.  Also, I haven’t been able to skype my mama or sister, which I had been doing just about everyday.  And I’m really missing everyone from back home.  As I said, pity pouting party for me, with a few tears too.  But then I came back to my apartment to eat my healthy food and decided to turn my […]

Jessica: the day of love

Happy Valentines day to all!  I use to be a sucker and poor sport when it came to this day, but now I truly embrace it.  Not just for “the love of my life” or a boy or anything like that, but using it as a day to tell the people I love that I love them. Sunday night was a great night at home.  I taught my family how to play crazy 8’s and we ate jello and french toast–which the boys had only had a time or two […]

Jessica: finding a routine

Finally, I have begun to sleep throughout the entire night.  I think it helps that I’m not sick anymore and I don’t cough myself awake.  However, I’ve been sleeping for 8+ hours each night, which is way different, compared to back home when it was maybe 7 hours.  Not quite sure how to change that, I suppose I could still be catching up on lack of sleep the first two weeks of being here.  Now that classes have started, the dynamic on campus has changed entirely.  I was expecting a […]

Jessica: First day of classes

Well I can say that the first day of classes was successfully completed!  I’m not quite sure how I feel about it all.  All three of my classes today are first year classes (aka simple classes).  It might be nice.  But it also wont be all that riveting.  Oh well, I shouldn’t complain and I’ll just do what I’m suppose to do to get the grade.  Tomorrow I will have my 4th and final class so we will see how that all goes.  For one of my classes I don’t […]

Jessica: Sydney weekend

We spent a fun filled weekend in Sydney.  The city was quite amusing.  Starting the day off right, I over slept for my alarm and instead of waking up at 5:45 as originally planned; I woke up at 6:30 and needed to be on the bus at 6:45.  Rushed as rushed can be, I had showered, dressed, packed, and Laura made me toast, packed a few other snacks and raced to the bus making it on time thankfully. Then for the next 3 hours we were on the bus for our adventure […]
