whooo what a hectic last few days it has been...

today I got up at 4.30am to get ready to be at the airport by 6.30am for my 7am flight to Auckland. I then spent the entire day in a conference room learning how to be a store manager... That was day one of 4 days that I get to spend in Auckland, I then had to wait around for 2 hideous hours at the airport for my flight back to Wellington. There was a lot of turbulence on the way back... Anyway ill leave it at that for now... I do have a date on Saturday which will be great.

Stupid thing Russ did: I was walking out of the terminal and I was reading the text messages I got, and I was walking towards what I thought was the door... But it was just a glass panel. Well need I say more... I thought it was hilarious!

Head in the clouds

I am now back in Wellington after a hideous 11 hour bus ride that I was almost denied to ride because I apparently wasn't on their system when I had paid for my ticket 2 months ago... So I had to end up paying 67 dollars to come back. *sighs* precious money!!! Hopefully ill get refunded when I show that I have paid for my ticket twice!

Tonight is Aaron and Bray's birthday party... That should provide a good social evening to get back into the swing of Wellington life.

I really enjoyed the phone calls from work nearly every day, it made me feel loved!
thanks guys :)

Auckland vs. Wellington

The differences between Auckland and Wellington are odd but very real for me...

Auckland has...

Burger Fuel (the most delicious burgers in the world)
Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers (which I can actually live without)
Old Friends

Wellington Has...

Delicious Gelato from Caffe Eis
Wholly Bagels
New Friends

to be completely honest I feel more at home in Wellington, In Auckland I feel out of place...
it could be due to the fact that I have now lived in Wellington for over a year... When I come to Auckland to do my Film and Television Diploma, it will be only for that, then ill most likely move back down to Wellington.

So I have been in Auckland for 3 days now... Its been good catching up with friends but I also really miss Wellington!

I miss getting Wholly Bagels with Vicki and getting Gelato with the Club.
Speaking for Gelato, today I went on a mission to get some. I caught a bus into town and then got on a ferry to Devonport...Because Devonport was the last place I knew had gelato... BUT when I got there the gelato shop was closed! How unfortunate for me. Now I am going to have to wait until I get back to welly, which will be the first thing I do right after I get some sleep.

So basically Today consisted of me spending time by myself with Auckland, I do enjoy it when I have me time, I was able to write a poem, which I haven't done since November last year.
So after that I spent a couple of hours mooching around town with Hayley. This evening I went to Johns place and caught up with him and then watched a movie it was good to see him again.

In my bed at home lives a girl, she has stolen my room and my mother(which is funny because its usually me who steals mothers), her name is Kalyan so because she has my bed I have to sleep in the couch which is too short for me and now I have a sore back, but that's fine.

I really have so many people to catch up with and not enough time, I really hope I can catch up with them all before I go.

Its only 2 more sleeps until in Auckland...I cant wait to see my mum and my friends too. And to eat a delicious spicy chicken fillet burger from Wendys I think they make the 2nd best burgers in the world the best burgers ever are made by burger fuel! They are just so bloody good! I will try and post while in away too, just so you guys are not left in the loop. Well that is basically all I have to say for the moment so ill leave you with this...

Hey I just realized that I haven't posted in ages... You all must be so annoyed with me and im sorry, my life has been busy with work really... I worked Wednesday and Thursday night at courtenay central Starbucks, and I slept all day which was great, then on Thursday Matt came down with his Auckland friends so it was good to see Shanaynay again. Friday was house to myself as Fahren went home to see her family, so Daniel and Ben came over and we had a few drinks. Then on Saturday night after finishing work I went to Jamisons flatwarming which I must say I had a good time... Drinking the wine that Liz left for me to consume, Thanks Liz
Then I had work at 7.30am which sucked as it was supposed to be my day off but Sharn wanted to spend some time with some guy that was leaving today or something... But im ok with that as I only have 6 more sleeps before im in Auckland. Which I am so excited about because I really need a holiday. Anyway I have work at 6am and I need to get a good amount of sleep so I wont be late

Busy busy busy

Hello People!

I haven't updated lately because I have been so tired, It was a super busy weekend with the Lions Tour on and also hosting a leaving party for Emma and Satya, who had there last week at work so they had leaving drinks at my place because its oh so handy to town, and ofcourse having a bajillion people in welly you cant resist going out, so we all ventured into town and had a fantastic time! And one must be punished... So my body is going that's it you need to rest so I've been trying to do that as much as possible... And yet I still feel like crap... Oh well I don't have work at the hideous time of 6am, I have the privilege of working at the glorious Courtenay Central and start at 3pm... Its nice to work at a different store every now and then...Even though every starbucks looks the same each has their own different
