I feel this past week has been one of my busiest..
Thursday: My birthday (In NZ) my friends and I went out to eat at a random asian place that was delicious, Jenna got me a chocolate muffin topped with a tim-tam, and then we all went out and partied.
Friday: I finished most of my packing, bought some last minute stuff, and walked around campus taking photos.
Saturday: Woke up early and did last minute laundry, tossed out a lot of stuff that I couldn't bring back, cleaned my room, and turned in my key. The Massey bus also drove right by where I was supposed to be dropped off and continued into town. I had to get off at the next stop and call a taxi to go back--my bus to Wellington was due in 20 minutes (NOT enough time to do a loop on the bus, plus I don't think the bus would have gone back to Massey because the bus schedule is weird on weekends)
Later Saturday: Met up with Betsy in Wellington because she was leaving the next day. We hung out at her nice hotel room she had booked because she found a really good deal on the room. Went to my hostel for my free meal that I got for staying at Nomads and went to go see Sir Ian McKellen perform. Yes, I did act like a fan girl :) Ian McKellen also surprised the audience when he called up the cast of The Hobbit to help get donations for the opera house in Christ Church.
Sunday: Ate breakfast with Betsy before she left and then I hung out at Te Papa (the free and amazing museum) and a book store for the rest of the day.
Monday: I didn't even go to bed Sunday night, I had to be at the airport around 4am for my 6:10am flight. While I was making sure everything was packed, I made friends with one of the girls I shared my room with.
Monday cont.: My flight home--better than the one to New Zealand, but not by much. It involved a nose bleed and a lack of sleep and good movies. But once I got back...words can't even describe it. I was back to where I recognized everything I saw, name the highway we where on, and know what part of the country I was in. We got Mancino's pizza, I gave out my gifts, and then I had one of the best night's sleep I've had in a really long time.
Tuesday: I went to go see my mom for a couple of hours and gave her her gifts and I then hung out with my friend Mackenzie. A pool, the mall, Stacks, Just Dance game, and her nieces and nephews were all involved.
Wednesday: Dropped off my car at the mechanics for a quick check-up before going to Florida in a couple of days, drove my mom to the hospital for a small procedure, bought a pair of Toms, and then I got to see Sara, Jill, and Anna Beth!!! We met up at Gads and talked about everything and anything.
It's really good to be back
