Oh Yeah....I was writing a blog.

As you may have noticed, the blog posts stopped roughly a month ago. I'll blame some of it on actually having work to do, but that excuse really doesn't hold up- my apologies. Since my last entry, I've been to Canberra, back to Brisbane, written a 5000 word paper and a 10000 word paper, given a 15 minute presentation, gone to a national Cricket match, gone hiking in the Glasshouse Mountains, had a surf lesson, survived nearly unbearable heat, and finally, left the land Down Under. I've attached a few pictures of the events of the last month, but I really want to take this last entry to thank you for reading this blog. It's really meant a lot to me knowing that people have been keeping up with me in Australia. I've tried to keep it funny and interesting (although I know it hasn't always been), so, thanks mate.
This trip is one I'll never forget. I've learned alot (look left at intersections, everything is more dangerous in Australia, and the definition of a billabong, for example), I've made great new friends (you know who you are), and had experiences I'll never forget (diving on the Great Barrier Reef and star-gazing in the Outback). Sadly, this will probably be my last entry (my normal life isn't near this interesting), so again, thanks, and if you ever get the chance to visit a sunburned country, don't miss it!
