This past month has flown by and it has been the best four weeks of my eleven weeks thus far. First, Ben was here to visit for two weeks and we went a ton of awesome adventures in and around Melbourne. Then, I started a new job at Dining Haul waitressing, and six days after Ben left, Mom, Dad, and Zack came to visit for a week. This past week did not last long enough at all, but we definitely squeezed a ton of activities into six short days.
And now, I have to readjust. I have to redefine my daily schedule for the next ten to eleven weeks. I have to adjust to not having my visitors with me at all times. I have to figure out a way to complete all possible Australian activities before I leave. Needless to say, today was a weird day after I hugged my family goodbye. I wasn’t able to play tour guide, or laugh at the crazy things that Zack says. 🙂 Instead, I went on a four-ish mile run to MSAC and then swam a bit. I met Nicole in St. Kinda for lunch and practiced some more crochet once I got home. Tonight, Daniel, Chels, Rob, Nicole, and I went to Crown Casino for food court dinner, bowling, and pool. I’m glad that I’ve stayed occupied!
Tomorrow, I think the three of us might do Pilates with one of Chelsea’s co-workers. Fun! I’ll try to upload some of the pictures from my family’s visit tomorrow as well. Goodnight from Australia!
Alicia’s Aussie Word of the Day: dacked. Meaning “pantsed”, or to have someone pull down your loose pants so that your bum shows! Ah! Usage: tonight, I almost dacked Nicole! 🙂
