Well, this past week here in Melbourne was not the best. When the sun is gone it is hard to enjoy the community. The weather is changing into fall. I will surely miss the days at the beach and the pool. That is no problem though. With the sun going away it gives us the opportunity to explore the many other things that Melbourne and Australia have to offer.
Also, there is a nasty little dorm cold going around and that surely did not help with the bad weather. I experienced my first stint of homesickness when I was sick. We all feel the same when we are under the weather. You just want your bed and your Mommy! After the cold was done I was just fine though.
One of the great things about being here is that you get to meet so many different people from around the world. We have made friends with a group of Canadian girls who are studying abroad here too! How cool is that? They do not live in our dorm. We just met them out and about. I know many in NYC are not used to strangers being so open, but that is just the flair here in Melbourne.
This past week has not been the most exciting, but don't worry. I will work on that this week! Jen's birthday is Saturday and we are going to the Zoo! Great pictures of the amazing animals are coming soon!
