My Last Days in Australia

Well my time here has wound to an end I leave in 2 days, I am one of 3 American's left so Uni-Central is pretty quiet these days. I have been to the chiropractor every day trying to get my back fixed up, apparently I sprained my back (I didn't know it was possible either) but walking isn't a problem anymore, so I have that going for me which is nice.
On Wednesday I toured the XXXX Brewery again with Lindsay(MN), Lindsay(NY), and Rachel(NY) and then last night was my last Tav night so we all went out of course. Today I had my exit inspection, no fines (hopefully they don't check under the bed when I leave), so all I need to do now is finish packing. I am looking forward to being home and seeing everyone.

Talk about going out with a Bang

As it turns out instead of doing some traveling around Australia before I go home, I will only be traveling to and from the chiropractor. Last week I was playing tennis, planted my foot and that was the end, I sprained my back and basically can't walk. I have spent the last few days basically on bed rest, I can't really sit up in a chair without being in pain, and walking is a horrible. Today my friends left for Melbourne and I am here waiting for my next visit to the chiropractor. People have been going home each day making the timing of the injury even better. Hopefully I will be doing better today after my visit. I will see you guys soon. I will be home June 26th.

I am done, but it is hard

Well I finally finished up classes here in Australia, and I am pumped about that. With the end of the semester comes some very hard goodbyes. People have started leaving already, and I am surprised how hard it is to say goodbye to these people. I still have not finalized anything as far as trip are concerned so I have basically been hanging around Uni-Central just taking it easy. Before I leave I will visit Melbourne and maybe some smaller trips to the Gold Coast and Brisbane again, but for the most part my travels are done. This has been the trip of a lifetime and there is nothing I would have changed. I have made some great friends, seen some amazing sights and all in all had an amazing semester. Right now I am torn, I am looking forward to catching up with everyone at home, but it has been an emotional week of saying goodbye. I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer at home, and in no time I will be there with you.
