Day 3: Feb 25th, 2009: Str8 Hair! W00t!

No early morning: I took my sweet damn time this morning since I didn’t have to be anywhere til 2pm. 😀 So I cleaned the house a bit, did some laundry, and straightened my hair a lil bit. Now I know, it sounds a lil odd since my hair is normally straight. lol But before I left the US, I had a curl/wave perm in my hair, so it has a “natural” wavy curl all the time now. So I decided to flatten it. lol It looks different. Hmm. I dunno. Not really me. But nonetheless, the hair is styled and looks nice. 😀

Good Samaritan: I will be helping the welcoming BBQ today in about 10 minutes or so. Have nothing else to do, so I offered. 😀

QUT: When I’m done with that, I will head on to my first lecture in Contemporary Music Project: PGA, and then probably leave early, since it’s FIRST week. ( I don’t mean I’d be cutting class. Just I don’t think they will have us there for the full 2-5pm today.) Once done with my day, I’ll probably meander my way back to the pc lab.. lol

Dinner: Amy-Claire cooks tonight.. Wooohooo!

RE Donations: There has been some confusion on whether I’m flat broke and in need of beggin strangers for money. lol No, I just get asked alot from people how they can help, so I posted the information. I don’t have a job yet, and I’m ‘not begging, but hey…anything offered, be it $5 is REALLLY APPRECIATED. Seriously. 😀 Thanks in advance.

B105 Hot30 Countdown: I listen to this station all the time and have become addicted to a few songs I’ve never heard before. I wonder sometimes if it’s that I havn’t heard them because they weren’t as popular in the US, or because when I moved here, they were just starting to come out on the radio at home and I missed it. Either way.. they play alot of Pink, Kings of Leon, Rhianna, and dance stuff..

2nd Year Class: So as I was walking into my 2nd year class today, a girl turns to me and asks “Are you a 2nd year?” with a look on her face like, You know you’re not, so I’m calling you out on it. lol and I replied, “No, I’m not, but I am in THIS CLASS”. When I sat down, noone sat next to me.. I waited. and waited.. the whole room filled up, and I was the only person sitting in the 3rd row.. Uhmm… lol OK!!! lol Weirdos. Then after abunch of hooplah and talk, the teacher finally takes roll, and I could tell that people were waiting to see/hear if I had made a mistake. Was she on the list? Is she in the wrong room? He called my name, and I replied “Here”. And that was that. 😀 BTW: in the US, we primarily respond with “here”, or “present”, and here, they say “yea” or “yep”. It was too laxed for me to say, so I said the US standard “Here” and stood out. 😛

Teaching their young: I’ve noticed a theme. This country teaches its young at allll times to be respectful of cultural differences. To be aware that people are different. It’s quite amazing to watch/hear/observe. At the beginning of all public presentations, they thank the aboriginal people and their land, etc… They also advise all Aussies to be sensitive to the differences in the international students, etc… That people learn, speak, study, interpret things differently, etc. I guess they are more prepared for us, than we are of them. Sux really.
