Last Friday night we had the fire alarm go off at 2 AM. It was horrible! For those of us that were here, we had to evacuate and sit outside with the swarms of mosquitos for about a half hour until the firefighters showed up. If Hutton House really was on fire, I'm pretty sure it would have burnt down before the firefighters arrived!
On Tuesday night, there was Blood moon/ lunar eclipse. We could see it pretty clearly here but we didn't see it turn red. Some of us endured the mosquitos and sat outside and watched it from the wide open University campus lawn! On Tuesday this week, there is supposed to be a meteor shower that is supposed to be pretty fantastic from about 8 PM to early hours in the morning. I can't wait for that!
On Thursday, I went on my weekly grocery run to Stockland's and finally tried a meat pie. Ever since I first arrived in Brisbane, I had seen countless billboards advertising "The best meat pies around" and heard many people talking about their favorite meat pies. Because of a friend's recommendation, I decided to try a steak and cheese pie and it was delicious! Super messy, but yummy! I'm pretty sure normal people eat it with a knife and fork but I wasn't given any so I made do with my hands and a couple dozen napkins haha.
On Friday, I experienced my first mid-term exam here and did awesome! I got a 92 out of 100. I and a couple other girls spent countless hours during the past couple weeks in the library studying for this mid-term. My study guide alone took me 13 hours to complete. (I really like to make study guides ha). It all paid off and I'm feeling pretty confident with my classes.
Today, I think I'll go for a walk and fill out some more postcards. I love walking to the university grounds and enjoying how pretty it is while I'm writing! I hope everyone has a fantastic Easter and eat some chocolate for me!
