Almost outta here.......

rain 45 °F

Hello, my friends!!!

Well, the last 2 days I relaxed and did nothing. Oh, wait. I've been doing that since I got here. *Peter Griffin laugh*

Last night, I went to my local grocers. I needed some toothpaste. I was shocked to see the prices for floss. Nearly 5 bucks. FOR FLOSS!!! Come on, people. All I want to do is get the crap out from in between my teeth. Is that too much to ask??? Apparently, it is. And then I go to the milk section and I see that a gallon of organic whole milk is $3.50. Go figure.

So, I've been doing a lot of job searching. I can't decide if I want to head up to Christchurch again or just go to Wellington. I've seen online that they have way more work available in the area that I want as opposed to Christchurch. But I just don't know. So many choices!!! I'm thinking the best thing to do would be to go to Wellington, stay there until gets warmer and then head further north to check out all the cool tropical beaches that are supposed to be superb. I really want to go to the Bay of Islands and Coromandel. And Lake Taupo. Those places are supposed to be way awesome according to locals and other backpackers I've talked to. Maybe I'll do that.

I still need to get a bank account set up and some kind of cell phone. I'm gonna take care of that stuff on Monday as that is my last day in this GOD FORSAKEN TOWN. Honestly, if I knew that all of New Zealand was like this town, I'd go see all the Lord of the Rings stuff and then head home. Cuz that would be all that is worth seeing. Now I wanna go do that horse trek thing again. That was fun.

Today it rained. It's freezing outside. Maybe it's a good thing to head north. In Wellington it's 10 degrees warmer. And there's also TONS of cafes. How those 2 are related, I don't know. But I thought it should be mentioned.

In other news, I'm more than positive that I saw the rugby guy again. And I think he recognized me, too. Cuz I was foolishly wearing the same outfit that he saw me in last time that I walked past him and it's not easy to forget my super awesome Boba Fett zip-up hoodie. Anyways, he's gorgeous.

Today I've been working on my resume to get a job. They are totally gung-ho on resumes and cover letters here. Annoying. Whatever happened to applying online or filling out an application??? Since I didn't need one in the states I had to start from scratch. I think it turned out pretty well. I have a few things I need to tweak here and there but all in all it's not bad for my first one.

You know what??? I love my laptop. It's so awesome. I could seriously type on this thing all day. It's the most amazing thing that the Lord Jesus ever created.

Okay, well, I hope all of you back home are doing okay. Most of you have probably already seen The Dark Knight and for that reason you suck because it doesn't come out here until next week. But I have heard that Heath Ledger is amazing. Now, is he amazing because he died before the film's release or is he amazing because he truly is??? Something to think about...........

I don't suck yet since I haven't seen the film. Neither has Christopher and it's driving him crazy. But I'll probably suck soon - I plan on seeing it this week.
