Alright, this post is going to be a little recap of what I did in the month of July, the year 2009. I guess this is a little acknowledgement to the fact that I have not been writing as many updates about my various exploits abroad as I thought I should or could. So here goes.
I flew from Hongkong via Auckland to Sydney. That’s right, not directly, as I could have, because a) that’s boring and b) Auckland is such a nice city (not). I arrived in Sydney on the 12th of July 2009 with a very official sounding student visa, which only costs around 400 Australian $, cheap is elsewhere my friend! But at least immigration was hassle free, compared to HongKong and Auckland, and only took 5 minutes. After that I was standing in the beautiful Sydney winter and enjoying about 18°C and sunshine outside.
After getting a shuttle bus to my hostel, which was surprisingly easy to arrange, I checked into the 5 star YHA central. 5 star meaning it’s basically a hotel with shared accommodation. I got myself a 4-bed room with 3 strange people in it. Especially this “Christian Dior” character stood out, being bi-sexual and a criminal justice advisor. How do I know all this about him? He told me, I sure as hell didn’t ask. All was good, even my move to the YHA across the street, Railway Square, was good, because I got rid of this “Dior-character”.
In the month of July i wanted to look for an apartment to live in, check out the city a bit and begin my semester on the 20th. I got all of that done, without finding a place to live. I looked at about 5-6 different flats, but either they were too dirty or the people living there were too strange. Which sounds a bit odd, given where I live now. But we’ll get to that next month.
Start of semester was great, with lots of parties, lots of meeting people, exchanging phone numbers and drinking beer. Which is basically all I ever drink, because all the hard liquor is too expensive. I mean, Vodka-Redbull for fourteen dollars? With ONE shot of Vodka? Who are you trying to kill with a sugar overdose there, barkeeper?
Next month, I’ll tell you about our classes, changing all the subjects around, e-requests again, and where to go for fun without spending your inheritance (or not as much of it).
Update von Freenet, auf meine Anfrage was denn jetzt los sei, welcher Tarif gelte wenn alles gekündigt ist, und überhaupt: folgende Antwort!
Bezüglich Ihrer Anfrage teilen wir Ihnen mit, dass Ihnen Ihr neuer Tarif seit dem 07.10.2008 zur Verfügung steht und nichts gekündigt worden ist.
Wir hoffen, dass wir Ihnen mit dieser Information behilflich sein konnten und stehen Ihnen bei weiteren Fragen unter den unten genannten Servicenummern gern zur Verfügung.
Ne, hilft mir nicht weiter, Kundencenter zeigt dasselbe an und der Speed ist auch nicht erhöht worden. Aber ich hab derzeit keine Lust und Energie eine 0900er Nummer anzurufen um mich mit einem Servicetechniker live zu prügeln. Online Deathmatch quasi, auch wenns noch so verlockend ist.
