the machine at my debit card since it expired i guess...i went to the bank teller and said it ate it and what does he ask me? "was it expired"...well i don't know sir...let me just check...OH WAIT...IT'S IN YOUR FREAKIN MACHINE!!! so now rent is late even tho it doesn't have to be and trying to do a bank transfer to my roomie's account just after i finalized my $5 test run i read that there's a $40 fee for international wire tranfers!!! HOLY SHIT!!! i reeeeeeeally hope it doesn't work but i know it did cuz that's the kind of week i've had ha...on a brighter note i got my license extension in the mail today so that works out well :) so now i've been forced to borrow money for rent! it's like i'm a kid in the candy store without any money and an unloving mother!!! i know the money's there i just have NO way of getting to it ha...ok so now i have to get back into the real world...the gym...placement...class...
i just am getting into going out on the weekends and meeting people and now i'm going to have to go back...HA life is ironic sometimes :) you get attacked by a magpie one day and the next thing you know you're sittin next to your coffee guy on the bus...life is strange :) if i've learned one thing while i've been here that is definitely it :) so enjoy it!!!

as he began to talk about how he used to smoke but quit (in his defense after he said starbucks tastes like shit)...i started to realize that i really had no idea who this mystery coffee guy was. there's been something about him ever since he said "you're erin right?"...and yet what did i really know about him? and then it hit me...sitting next to my coffee guy on the 802...i miss having someone to sit next to...
talk to...laugh with...hug...give me a hug...go out to dinner with...go have a drink with...go shopping with...go have a coffee with...it's such a friendly place this australia...but it's not home...by remembering my name coffee guy made australia feel a little more like home...and at the end of the day...it's just nice to have somebody know your name...
i wanna go where everybody knoooows my naaaaaaaaaaaaaame...
here i don't even have a best friend to call up and tell my cute coffee guy story to cuz it's 3:20am where she is...

I was eating a bagel so I thought that was what it may be after so putting the bagel in my backpack I walked slowly watching the black and white devil in the tree. He kept looking at me with that evil bird eye! Like he was watching me and wouldn't rest till I was gone! I walked around till I was far enough away and on the other side of the trees (having waved my arms and stomped the ground as I passed by him to scare him off) but NEEDLESS TO SAY the devil bird didn't budge! So I waited till i was far enough away then turned around and started to walk again...I was holding my head for a bit of the way...a headache starting to form...and then i heard the familiar noise AGAIN!!! I was quick this time and turned around and ducked! (i realize turning around wasn't the smartest thing to do now, but at least i ducked!) so then I waited till he landed again and then BOOKED IT for the bus stop!!! I've never felt so violated in my entire life!!! I couldn't scare a bird away! And my head was bleeding with a huge beak hole in it!!! Rediculous! hehe I have pictures! and now it feels liek i have dandruff since the scab is flaking! ha! And it's right were my ponytail goes! SO HAPPY FATHERS DAY to my lovely birdwatching daddy! and word of advice or so i'm told now...always look at them! or even wearing a hat or sunglasses on the back of your head helps because they only attack you from behind!!! vicious birds tho! they weren't going after my bagel after all! it was ME!!! because i was on their turf! My grocery store guy says "just wait till their babies hatch"...HA...oh my! We missed this season when we came in January apparently :) but beware of the magpies!!!
