Well.. what happened here recently... Went to the beach again - still think it's a bit to cold for swimming though. Visited Arne and Ash again, had a fire and watched the stars (saw like 20 shooting stars that night!). Stayed there for the night and went back to Varsity early in morning and then went to the beach.
Had the Accounting for Business Lecture today... I'm not glad to admit it, but it actually was really good! The teacher is cool! So... I'm gonna stick to it!
Spent this evening baking (or Lou did the baking-stuff, I did the dishes!), cause it's her birthday tomorrow. Trine is gonna come for breakfast along with a few others and we are off to BBQ at the beach later!
That's it for now!

Went to the beach in Maroochydore the other day - it was too cold to go swimming but it was nice just to sit there and relax. We walked on the beach all the way to Mooloolaba where we visited a new friend - a German guy called Arne. He lives in a big house together with four or five others. They made a fire in their garden and we sat there drinking cold beers, looking at the stars, talking and just had a nice time.
Yesterday we went to Glass House Mountains where we climbed the one of the mountains. It was a great trip and the view from the top was really beautiful! In the evening we had dinner at Trines place here at Varsity together with another Danish girl, Manja. We had a very good night with with lots of girl-talk and got to know each other a bit better.
Tomorrow we start school.. we only have one lecture tomorrow (from 2-4 pm) so it's gonna be easy. I'm pretty excited to start.. or... well... I'm excited to see how the school system works down here.
Anyway, going to bed now!

Went to campus yesterday to get some informations about my subjects - everything sounds cool - except from the accounting part - I'm so not gonna take that class if I can change it!
Last night there was a cocktail party in Maroochydore at the Sunshine Plaza. I wouldn't exactly call it a cocktail party (beers in plastic cups!?) but it was fun! Some got hangovers today - I'm okay - I ate free breakfast at Varsity (pancakes and french toast with bacon!) this morning and just waiting to go to the beach now. This thing with the free food... I LOVE IT!

Apparently there’s a party here every night – I could get used to it, as long as I don’t have to go EVERY night! This week there’s “O-Week” and it’s all about getting as drunk as possible every night!
Anyway – if (or when!) you’ve spend all your money on (expensive!) alcohol, you don’t have to worry about how to get something to eat… Volunteers from the church make free BBQ at Varsity sometimes and there’s free food different places at campus also – and if in deep trouble, you can order a food-package from uni! Got to try it!
…Or info-day you might call it. Stood in line for 40 minutes to get registered at the school. Once registered, the staff just went crazy with information! I now know exactly how every single alarm at campus sounds like, whether it’s the fire alarm or the “danger”-alarm etc. I also know how to say hello in 3 different ways in Australian, I know that I should NOT touch a kangaroo (even though I really want to!), I know that there are other Danes than Lou and I (Trine was really happy to meet us!) and I know that I definitely don’t have any time - what so ever - to attend classes, cause there’s sooo many things I need to go see while I’m here!
