Car’s Travel Diary

Location: Australia

MapSo I'm finally done with classes and most of my final papers! I'm sorry if I've been a little out of touch the last few weeks have been crunch time as far as finals are concerned, and even though I'm finished with class time I still have one more final paper to write. It's not due for another week though so I have a few days to relax before I get cracking on it! We've been lucking out on some gorgeous weather here in Newcastle during the past week! I've made it down to the beach a few times, though hardly tanning weather, it was nice to be at the beach again without the rain. It's warmed up a bit also which is always nice, I'm usually pretty comfortable in jeans and a tshirt, sometimes I need hoodie or some kind dof pullover, but as long as its not windy the sunshine feels good! I finally had the chance to meet the other half of Sam's family at his little brother's birthday lunch a few weeks ago! They all seemed very nice, and his younger siblings are a riot. Sam's dad also scored us tickets to the Pink concert, she was preforming at the Newcastle Entertainment Center and the concert was awesome! Sam was a good sport for missing out on watching a rugby tournament to go to the concert with me :) Last night I took Sam out to dinner for his birthday at this really nice gourmet pizza restaurant on the harbor!

While the idea of saying goodbye to all the friends I've made and leaving Newcastle does make me very sad, I'm so lucky to have to chance to stay here an extra two weeks and I'm starting to get a little homesick again! I talked to my mom at the end of last week and I talked to my dad and Peter this morning! It's been good to hear familiar voices of friends and family from home and I can't thank everyone enough at home who has kept in touch through email and through this website! I also talked to a few of my room mates at home today about our new apartment at Plymouth and made me feel a little better about coming home. This place has been my home for the last 5 months and it's going to be VERY hard to leave my apartment here in three weeks and even harder to leave Australia in five weeks!

Love & Miss you all
