Throughout the week that I've been here in Australia, I've done a lot of cool things. I've attended orientation week (o-week) at Bond which included: finalizing my school schedule, getting my Bond student ID, going to free barbeques, taking a campus tour, getting a bus pass (for travelling around the city), picking up my books, learning about different facets of the campus, and watching a midnight movie on the campus lawns. Outside of orientation, I've travelled around the city by bus and by foot. I've been to the fabulous shopping center of Robina city and have enjoyed the warm sun of Brisbane's Broadbeach. This entire week has gone by so fast. I've spent most of the time in the sun (learning the hard way that I need to apply sunscreen more generously), swimming at the beaches, walking around the city, eating at different local restaurants (ordering the famous "fish and chips"), and learning about the different things that the Bond University campus offers (clubs, trips, etc.). School starts tomorrow and I am beyond excited to finally commence the semester. I can't wait to meet my fellow classmates, learn some more Australian lingo (because I am picking up quite a bit), try group exercise classes through the campus fitness center, and travel on my free time. I understand how Finneus managed to overstay his visa!
