Okay, first off, I would like to apologize for kind of falling off the grid a little if this is the only way you’ve been able to hear about my trip so far. I have just been really overwhelmed with all the new experiences and everything that I didn’t really take time out of my day to process them enough to share on this blog.
However, I will give you a run-down on the last days I had in Sydney as well as how life is going up here at the Sunshine Coast!!! :)
So, as for Sydney, I was just busy enjoying the time I had with my cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents mostly. I did go to the Color Run in Sydney on February 9th, which was such a fun experience! I was a little worried the colored powder wouldn’t come out because some of my hair was stained for a week or so… and right after I felt that I had breathed in a ton of colored powder hahah.. so crazy :o but it was alright, I felt super clean and fresh after a shower. It was an awesome time all together, with everyone throwing the powder everywhere the 5k went by really fast, and I don’t think I’ve ever looked or been so messy before.
Besides this and hanging out at home with family, I went on a few trips to different beaches. Coogee, Bondi (of course ;-)), Wollongong…

I also enjoyed relaxing at my uncle’s house :) met some interesting new friends (one of them the deadly funnel web spider), and saw how terribly small Australia’s “large” pizzas are
Anyways, I am excited to go back there at the end of March for a weekend to see my family, as my uncle and his family are flying in from California and my parents and brother are coming from Minnesota. It’ll be so great seeing them all!!!
As of right now though, I am writing this from my comfy bed at the University of the Sunshine Coast. I’ve been here for a week and although the day I came up here it was a little rainy, the sun has followed be from Sydney and the weather is beautiful. Right now I’m listening to the rustle of the palm tree right outside my window and absolutely loving life. Not really sure how I got so lucky to be able to have started fulfilling my dream of living here in Australia. I am thinking about extending my visa already actually. :o Keep your fingers crossed I’ll be able to figure something out for that. Ahh, I love this school! I’ll tell you more about it in my next post.
