    International Student in Sydney

    I am finally no longer on crutches! WHOOOO-HOOOO! It's weird feeling weight on my foot again. I'm almost - like - re-learning how to walk again. My suite mate Janus and I start participating in a paid study because they give you money and breakfast, and I need to take whatever I can get.

    Interning at the Iconic

    My internship at The Iconic has finally come to an end. The experience was very different than any of my other work experiences in America. I learned so much about what I want and don't want in a company and a manager, as well as how I work best.

    Mis Axilas Duele (My Armpits Hurt)

    Finally went to the doctor's and I'm officially hurt and on crutches. My armpits are in a lot of pain. I wonder if armpits can get strong? Now I'm exploring Sydney and Melbourne in crutches or a wheelchair. It's a very annoying vehicle to maneuver in.

    Straya Day Part 2!

    It's true what people say: foam parties are gross. I attended one and will never do it again. I also came across my first mini-library where anyone can drop-off and choose a book. I'm excited for next week's adventures: surf camp and Melbourne. Here's to all the fun!

    Straya Weekend, Part 1 of 2

    The gang and I have been exploring Sydney every opportunity we get. More adventures in Australia: checking out the Sydney Festival, restaurants, and clubs. We also got to play old video games displayed on the side of an old building. Oh Australia, how interesting art thou.

    I Dislike Gray Days

    Everybody should have a pair of chopsticks to cook with. I grew up watching my mom cook with chopsticks and I live with Asian roommates who all cook with chopsticks, so it's weird when I meet someone who DOESN'T cook with chopsticks. Do you know what I mean?
