So here I am in Australia on a mission to surf and I just keep thinking about how I miss Vancouver and want to be there. I know I haven't really given Australia much of a chance so far spending most of my time sitting around at home, not really going out, not meeting anyone so it's been lonely and not very fun or exciting and no surfing.
Yesterday I bought a pair of awesome shiny gold heels - I never buy or wear heels so this is pretty big for me. They're perfect and even better they totally work with my bridesmaid dress. So upon arriving home with them I put on my dress, shoes, and jewelry (Candice tried on a dress too) and we were walking around in our bridesmaid dresses. It was fun and I felt like a lady :P
After that we had to knuckle up and start preparing dinner as Ang and her mom were coming over, well actually Candice prepared dinner (I helped with the salad), while I drank my beer and watched Neighbours and that new show Taken Out that despite initial criticism even Eden likes watching it. Yesterday all the girls turned their lights off for this one guy on the show, I felt so bad for him but seriously he had to have seen it coming. Ouch.
Anyway, we drank pink champaign with strawberries and had a lovely dinner of salmon, roast potatoes, and salad. Ang said she might be able to hook me up with a job so that would probably be good because as unemployment can be sometimes it still kinda sucks. Like when you already don't have a lot of money and you don't want to blow it so you spend most of your time sitting around at home watching TV and having dance parties by yourself while your housemates are at work.
I've apparently been terrible at writing this trip (and it's true) so I will try and be better. I've gotten into a bit of a rut and I'll try and break free and do something interesting.
