It's August!

Happy August everyone!
I've made it through July!! And my second week of "Uni" is complete.

Not an extremely exciting week - you can tell by the lack of posts.

Got sick on Thursday and am battling it off by taking liquid medicine 3 times a day, in addition to Advil in the morning and Benedryl in the evening to make me sleep. No help as of yet, but hopefully I'll wake up feeling a little bit better tomorrow.

Tonight - because I was sick - I opted not to go to youth group. Instead I was going to have a nice quiet evening. Make some dinner, watch a movie and turn in early. But when I went into the kitchen to make dinner Ariel and Eddie (flatmates) were making a big dinner. They asked if I wanted to join them and Ariel's friend Sharon, to which I said "Of course!". Tomo got back from grocery shopping and we invited him to join us too. So we had a big family dinner of Chicken and potato curry, stir fry, green beans, a tomato and egg mixture, omlette and rice. It was all fantastic.

Following dinner we were treated with Japanese sweets. Don't really know how to explain it... It was kind of a doughy ball with something inside. There were 5 different flavors. In addition to the Japanese sweets we had kiwi and wafers similar to Tim-Tams (for those that don't know what Tim-Tams are.... well... I'll bring them back with me during Christmas break... they are delicious). And Eddie pulled out his guitar and we sang for about an hour. It was a lot of fun. Sharon, Ariel's friend, ran back to her flat and grabbed a recorder because she liked my voice so much. It was fun. :)

But I am exhausted.
And my head is starting to pound.

Tomorrow I've got a full day of Postgraduate Seminar. I'm missing a trip to the Australian Zoo so that I can learn... so hopefully it's beneficial to me in the long run. :)

It'll be four weeks tomorrow night since I first came.

Four weeks! Yay me!

Does this Sharon person have connections with a recording studio? Are you going to be a rockstar now? Are you going on tour? Can I come?
