sunday morning my friends and i gathered at rotary, which is student housing where groups of people share a kitchen and its up to them to cook their own meals. each one of us brought a different food item- with my culinary expertise, i thought it wise to come bearing nectarines and orange-mango juice. we had a diverse meal: bacon, eggs, SO MUCH TOAST, peanut butter & jam, chocolate chip muffins, and the most exciting- kangaroo! tasted kinda beefy to me, and it was really tough. overall i liked it.
this week classes finally began, and i'm really excited about all of them. each includes some sort of field trip, the first of which is next weekend. this weekend though i am finally going diving! i'll be getting my advanced open water certification while getting my first taste of the great barrier reef. ryan will be bringing along his GoPro so hopefully we'll get some cool videos and pictures to share! i'm also excited about rock climbing club, which i've recently become involved with. they climb twice a week at an indoor gym, and on weekends go on trips to both local and far locations. it's a great way to meet people, stay active, and see some cool places!
somehow i've been trusted enough to earn a belay license..
