Dreams and Papers

It’s so strange because I remember almost ALL of my dreams here. At home I never remember any of them. At home I swear I don’t even dream most nights. Here though I remember at least one dream every night and it great detail. It’s so crystal clear sometimes I swear it happened for real. They all aren’t about the same thing either. Some are scary, some are sad, some are funny and some are just pointless. It’s so strange though I can’t figure out why it’s different here.


Well I really don’t have much to update because I have just been working on school work and getting my papers done so I don’t have to worry about them the rest of the week. My parents are coming Wednesday and I’m meeting them in Sydney! I’m soo excited! Not only to see them but to experience the east side of Australia.


My friends and I made pizza together Friday night and watched a movie. I’ve been watching so many movies since I’ve been here. I’m not used to watching so many movies but I like it. I need to catch up on my movies. I usually have no idea what anyone is talking about when they talk about movies haha. Yesterday we went shopping and I bought the cutest peach colored dress. I love it! :)


It’s different here because they use a different referencing system than in the States. I use MLA at home and here they like the Chicago style. They also don’t limit pages but the amount of words. All of my papers are 2000 words. I think it’s roughly 6 pages.


Oh something I actually learned from my movies: Australia was attacked in WW2. I never knew that. Their north (Darwin I believe) was attacked and they lost the most amounts of people then than any other time. I learned that from the movie Australia.


Today is Curtin’s Open Day, which I’m pretty sure is the day they have high schoolers come and check out the school. And theirs is so much better than ours. They have dj’s everywhere and they have those huge bouncy blow up things along with this rope bouncing thing. It looked like a lot of fun. I probably would have done them but it was raining when I went on campus today. :(


That’s all I got!
