Settling in...

Alright guys, it's been a while but things have been crazy over here. But I am now offically settled in. I live in an awesome house in Surry Hills, which has a similar vibe to Adams Morgan. Lots of bars and restautrants, tons of cafes and Art galleries. It is about a 15 minute walk from campus.

A little about the house. I live in a 3 level terrace ( equivalent to a townhouse ). I share it with three other roommates. Here is a brief description of the roomates:
Jade : Is a indie rock/punky party in a box. She works for MTV Australia. She gets us into crazy parties and shows with her MTV hookups.
Caroline: Is a laid back 2nd year law student at Sydney Uni. She works as a desktop publisher and LOVES Vodka.
Silka: Is in Sydney to get work experience as an Interior Designer. She is from Germany and will be returning there in a few months.

The party and bar scene here is getting a lot better thanks to my roommates. They take me to crazy places and I meet a lot of interesting people. Needless to say I have been boozing my ass off. The only problem with being a borderline alcoholic in Sydney is that the beer at a liquor store costs almost as much as a pint at the pub. So pregaming here is not that popular but I have still been doing it because I am a creature of alcoholic habits.

So in month 1 have made friends, got a place with great roommates, enrolled in classes, and have figured this city out pretty well. Now I have to buckle down and focus on classes which start on the 25th. Well, buckle down when I am in class. Which is 3 days a week - Tues to Thurs. And no class starts before 2pm.

Oh yeah, another task I have to look into is figuring out the God awful metric system. WTF ! Meters, Kilometers, Cemtimeters... who gives a shit. I still talk in lbs and miles and people get really annoyed because they have no idea what it means. But I am sure I will figure it out.

Alright all for now... time to go meet some friends at the bar for some good old Wednesday afternoon celebrating. You guys need to get over here and live it up for New Years. I have already warned my roommates that some of you will be staying over for NewYears and they are cool. Lots of floor in the house to pass out on.

Anand, I can't believe you are living with chicks already! I thought I was living it up when I got invited by some Swedish girls to go back to their house and play pool volleyball with them. But now they have gone back to Sweden. Keep up the blogs, I should have done this when I was new to Sri Lanka, now I'm a jaded vet having been here for 3 months.

Oooh Im in Australia. Oooh I'm in Sri Lanka. Well I just ate at the "California" Pizza Kitchen in the Golden Triangle. I will now create a travelouge of my extensive journeys. Oh and I got a "Thai" pizza while I was there, don't be too jealous of my worldly ways.
