November 2008

Those are three big things in America, and I had the chance to experience all of them!

Halloween was crazy, partly because of the costumes but mostly because of the amount of people that went out to the streets that night. There were two or three big Frat parties that night and one of them got shut down by the University Police, so as you can imagine the rest of the parties were packed...

Along that alcohol trend...3 of us headed to Oktoberfest in September...yes, you’d think it’d be in October but those Germans have a funny way of naming things! Lol.

The trip to Copenhagen was fantastic. We travelled with a group of maybe 40 international students to Copenhagen where we were shown around by one of the guides organised by Aarhus University. There’s this association set up by the uni purely for international students. They have “International Bar Night” every Tuesday night; which has been a great place to meet up with everyone now we’ve all split up into our various faculties.

So because I’m new to the blog I thought I’d back track a little to an entry I wrote at the beginning of September, to give you some idea of where I am in the world...Just warning you - there'll probably be a bunch of entries from me in the next couple of days to try and get me up to date!

Despite leaving Australia on 16th July, I've only just begun uni herein Aarhus - a town in the north of Denmark. So far the courses seem great...though quite different to Sydney. Of course, you've got the language barriers as people in my class come from all over... Japan, China, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Peru, Italy and Turkey just to mention a few...but that does make it really fun. I almost feel like a walking English dictionary sometimes!! Haha. I remember a Polish girl asked me where I was from because I was "so fluent in English"...I hope so!!

For me, one of the things I was most excited about coming on exchange to Canada for was the prospect of snow.
Ottawa gets a lot of snow. After all of last Winter's snow, for example, there was about 2metres worth of the white stuff piled up around the place (so my Canadian friends tell me, anyway - I do hope it's not their version of our Aussie "drop-bear" tales). Not only that, but temperatures drop to around -30celsius when windchill is taken into consideration!
Never again will I complain about Sydney Winters!!

I feel very happy here in la la land. I think I’ve settled in nicely now, forged out a little niche, wriggled around and gotten comfy. But I’m very conscious of not falling into a routine – I want to explore as many new things as possible with a childlike curiosity. Be as a sponge – soak everything in. But a sponge can only fill up so much without releasing…so here goes.

I always thought Halloween was a great idea for a public holiday - I'm now sure of it. As for Obama, let's hope I'm right there too!

While Halloween probably passed unnoticed (again) in Australia, it was celebrated with great enthusiasm in this corner of the world. Pumpkin carving, house decorations, costume parties and more fun-filled events occupied much of last week. Even lecturers got in on the action with at least one of my professors showing us her "favourite biochemical molecule" costume. Ok, a little lame, but the enthusiasm was nice.

So this has been a pretty unproductive stuvac for me.

I thought the pinnacle of procrastination was abandoning my 3500 word final essay last night to practice some Jack Johnson songs on guitar (“Oh,” I hear you asking, “you play guitar?” Apparently I do now. Until yesterday my repertoire was limited to “The lion sleeps tonight” and the riff from a Red Hot Chili Peppers song, but my catalogue increased to make me a human jukebox of JJ).

But I digress. This story is about Peter. Studious and reliable Peter. The one I normally depend on to force me to study. This is what he did yesterday.

Given my recent absence from the University of Sydney Blog-o-sphere, you would be forgiven for thinking I had fallen down the same hole as the global economy. Thankfully, old blogging habits Die Hard, and like Bruce Willis in 1995, I’m Back With a Vengeance. However, like Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4, I haven’t done this in a while, and this will most likely be a bomb.

Last night was my very first (and quite sadly, possibly last) proper, North American Halloween!
