Whenever I talk to people from back home, they keep saying “Oooh, so what exactly are you doing in New Zealand?” The answer: #straightthuggin.
Just kidding. I like to pretend I’m gangster. It’s a fun aspiration when you’re a 5’2″ white girl. Sorry mom, gangsta rap made me do it.
For this little blog post, I interviewed myself. It was quite fun, I was a great guest. Hopefully this will answer all your questions from you peeps back in T-town and Montana
What exactly are you doing in New Zealand?
Well, I recently landed a job at Mondo Cafe! I work as a prep cook / dishwasher / barista / clerk / cleaner / a lot of things. BUT I have awesome bosses and co workers and I love it. I’m learning to do latte art, which is actually uber fun.
When will you be heading home?
I leave on the 14th of May which is actually the 13th of May in Montana (I’m 20 hours ahead).
Why did you leave high school and head to New Zealand?
Short answer: I felt that I had learned as much as I could from high school and I wanted to learn out in the real world.
Long answer: Last semester I had more than enough credits to graduate and had taken almost all of the classes available to me at my high school. If I stayed, I would be taking purely online college classes and sitting in the library all day long. Yes, it would be nice to get those college credits out of the way, but I find I don’t learn as well independently. Also, that sounds depressing and lonely.
Are there hot boys?
Yes. Very hot. The accents are amazing. It’s hot boy land. Problem though, most of them suck and are only traveling through / are pretentious jerks.
Is there a nightlife?
Yes, there are a bunch of dancing clubs!! It’s incredibly fun and it’s a great way to meet people. There’s also a lot of great restaurants that I have been enjoying.
Do you miss home?
Yes, most days. Except the days when I’m laying out in the sun tanning while it’s snowing back home.
I hope this answered any questions anyone might have had! I miss you guys! See you in a couple of months! :)
Do you enjoy straight thugging? Shoot me a line! :) ALSO: If you have anymore questions about what I’m doing / what my daily life is like, feel free to comment them! :)
