After Monday, the weather was bad. I also had to write an essay for Gender Studies. I also found out my exam schedule. My personal last day of classes is October 9, and my first exam is October 29. There is absolutely no way I can study for that long, and so I have taken it upon myself to plan a nice trip during that time. I also booked my WWOOFing and hung out with Amy a lot. The internet in my flat stopped working. It's really annoying. On Saturday I was supposed to have a kayaking trip but it was postponed, and due to not having next Saturday free I cannot do it until October 8th. So I could have gone to the Catlins with Karin and co., oh well. Amy showed a double feature at her flat - When Harry Met Sally and The Graduate. That was cool. Then we went out to the Monkey Bar with Michelle, I with my new outfit from Refind Rig, which is a super cool store. I haven't really done anything yesterday or today since the weather is so shit as and everyone else is working. If it was nice out I would have just gone somewhere, but it's really unpleasant and hailing.
My traveling for the first bit of exams is all booked! I will be flying to Auckland on October 10th, then doing the Stray Peter Pass, then taking the Interislander Ferry to Picton and doing Magic Bus' Wild West Coast Plus pass. I am planning to take an extra day in Franz Josef, and possibly one in Queenstown, depending on how much I feel I could afford. I am really excited!
As for this week, I have an online exam for Māori Society on Thursday. I will then be taking the Atomic Shuttle to Christchurch Friday morning. The family I am staying with will pick me up there, and then it's off to Rangiora for about a week of working on a horse farm. In fact, the accommodation is 'in the stable block' and I am taking that to mean I'll be living in a barn. Then on Thursday the 28th, I will get a ride back to Christchurch and spend the day there. Friday morning I will take the Intercity bus to Picton, where I will be picked up by Jane and Daryl for the Abel Tasman weekend! That involves hiking and kayaking, and should be great fun. I am getting a ride home from Becky and Karin.
