..back to Torquay


I just can't stay away from the waves and so today after work I'm hopping the train down to Torquay so I can spend the weekend SURFING and hanging out with backpackers at a hostel. My first hostel stay in Australia and while I'm really not planning on partying it up you never really can tell what will happen when thrown in with a bunch of backpackers.

Also I hate Melbourne trains and I hate being a train commuter and I can't wait to be finished this job just so I no longer have to travel at peak hours. It's always crowded, late, or late and crowded and I just can't take it anymore. I also don't get how people in MX always see hotties on the train all I ever get is weirdos or smelly people - gross.

It's racing carnival time in Melbourne. I've never been to horse races before and for the Melbourne races you get dressed to the nines and don hats and fascinators and go out in class. My first time at the races will be exceptionally classy as Eden's dad got us tickets to the members only section where we will be served a 3-course meal and all booze is included in the ticket (which set me back almost $200) but considering what you normally pay to get into races, plus drinks I figure I'm pretty much coming out even. Who knows I may even be able to start going for one of my goals for Australia - namely marry rich Australian to stay in the country and not have to worry about work.

When considering my other Australia goals include being really tanned, getting sunbleached hair, living on a beach and surfing every day and working on a sheep farm - it seems a bit out there. And while it was mostly a joke I wouldn't put it past myself to up and do something like that.

So there you go, that's pretty much the word on the street lately. I'm totally stoked about surfing this weekend.
