What's this?!

I'm posting a blog? Oh, God, it's the Apocolypse! Or however you spell it.

But yeah- Rachel and me have been doing lots an' lots of work lately. We spent all of last week in Balboa in our own rental. And we survived off of pizza and Reeses' peanut butter cups.

I spent the weekend at my parents' place, and got to hang out with Sammi on sunday. Visited Grandma and Papa's ashes, also. Not much else is really going on.

Sorry for not posting yesterday. We got home late, and I was sleepy. So I kinda forgot.

We're going to Disney Land. Teh Happiest Place on Earth.

Finished two courses. Just ten more to go. Rachel and I went to the Special Needs School that she works part time at. She wanted to introduce me to the kids there.

Went to one of the grandparent's friend's restaurants. It was so busy, it ended up being a two-hour meal. But it was sooo worth it.

And then this morning, we went to Hep-Set cafe. I got one of the worst sugar-rushes in my life, and it's still not wearing off. The culprit? An iced chocolate that turned out to me a ginormous sundae with cookies and choco sauce in it. And a muffin. And my grandpa's latte. Yum. But the latte didn't give me sugar rush. Just the uber-sundae. Eh-heh.

Uber Update!!


We've got the initial idea of our flight hooo-oome!

We leave on the evening of April 1st for good ol' Newport Beach, California. We'll be there for a few days, and then....

Either to Oh-ray-gun! Also, Rachel (my tutor) will be coming with us. She's never been to the States, and woooah man. She's excited! So, apparently, I'm going to be taking her to Disney Land. And show her the awesome-ness that is Portland, Oregon.

We fly back to New Zealand from LA on the 24th, so we've got a nice amount of time to be in the States, and I plan on using that time well (i.e., get together with Sammi, Rae, and Kali, and chitty-chat with my mum and dad.)

91%, 94%, 89%, 90%, and 96% on my first five tests. That's a 92/100 average. Sweet.

I'm pretty happy with myself- keep up this pace, and maybe it'll be less then five months for all of my work, huh?

Just kidding. I highly doubt I could pull that pace.

But yeah... we're going to a Tupperware party. Hurrah. Oh, the ecstatic joy.

Not much else to say.


Back from the Tupperware thingee... wow, that was weird. We played bingo and stole stuff from people. I like that kinda bingo.

I won a portable salt/pepper shaker. It's pretty sweet. And Carol (the hostess) made this really yummy spinach dip stuff that was made outta soup. It was soooooo goooooood.

Right... I should be getting to bed now. And it's only nine. God, what's happening to my late-night tirades? I'll doodle a bit to make the guilt go away. Hehe.

I love Google. I really do. It's preeeetty useful, I think.

Especially when my OCD kicks in and I decide to obsessively research on something I probably wouldn't give a second thought to at any other time.

We checked out a house today- it was just amazing.

I'm pretty excited about this place- Both of my grandparents have been showing great interest in it, and the view is just breath-taking. It's set on a plateau, over-looking a humungo vineyard.

Faculty meeting tomorrow at 9, and I'm stuck doing homework at the front desk while they talk 'bout law. Which is really pretty interesting to me. It was a blast to study back at West Sylvan (i.e., the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution of different nations, and amendments to the law)

But whatever. I'll survive.

I like 'em. They're yummy and fruity and and fall into your face if you don't eat 'em with a spoon. Woohoo!

I should probably figure out the schedule for this shenanigan (hehe, funny word), but it would help if my grandparents even knew their own flight pattern! (*nudge nudge**elbow elbow*).

But in general, it goes something like this-

NZ 3/18-4/1
America? Sometime in April. I hate, hate, hate! Vague plans. Which I'll need to get used to.
NZ again until sometime in August/September.

Poopy. (Fear my oh-so-mature and dirty language)

We went and saw Kees and Joss today again. And I had a smoothie. It had a bunch of purple-ish bubbles. Grandparents also went to a Jack Johnson concert last night (definitely not my preference) and I went down the street to Scottie and Gill's house. They've got three adorable little boys. Jack, Lachie, and Thomas (Almost 6, 4, and 2 respectively).

I also sat and talked with Leanne for an hour or so yesterday while she was hosting a rather empty open house. Which was a relief, seeing as that meant we could chat un-interrupted. It was great. She's hilarious, and even offered for me to stay at their place if I ever needed a sanity break. Everyone seems to be offering that these days. I feel special.

It's kinda overcast here. It's really nice. Very Oregon-esque. All I need is my parents, best buds, and no sheep. Then it would almost seem the same.


I remember some more useless info!!
I get to go to a Tupperware Party on Tuesday. *gigglesnort*
'Kay, I'm done. Seeya!
