Hi everybody!

I haven't been active on here in a while, but I thought everyone should know that I have officially been accepted to study abroad in Australia next year for 4 months! Yay! I received my contract and I will be there from mid-February through mid-June! Woo!!

Any Australians around that have any advice at all for me?

Or anyone else that just wants to strike up an interesting conversation.

It depends on where you're studying exactly >.>

But expect extreme weather. And go to Queensland. It's an awesome state. We have the reef, the Daintree and pretty much all the awesome theme parks.

Yeah, I guess that's it

Oh, and what are you studying? :3

Advice... don't go Just about every wild animal can kill you, and they have extreme weather that can kill you, and yea the whole place is designed for human's to avoid

But of course I say this with the intent for you to skip Oz and come to NZ instead

Also - Coming from USA - The theme parks will be lame.

What he said.

Also the place is full of Australians too.
NZ a much better option, if you can handle all the
snow we've been having lately.

Stay away from the ants, they're aggressive and deadly. And the snakes. they're aggressive and deadly. And the beetles, they're aggressive and ugly. And the flies. they're aggressive and malarial. And the people, they're aggressive and deadly and ugly and malarial and drunk. And the crocodiles, they're all of the above. And the...

I'll be near Perth. From what I understand, the weather is supposed to be like 80's or so, which is perfectly fine with me.

I'll be finishing up my core classes there, so I'm taking philosophy, theology, history, fine arts, and a social science of some sort. A little bit of everything.

Oh and uh...thanks for the advice from the rest of you. I don't think I'll be able to make it to New Zealand but I REALLY want to go if the opportunity presents itself.
