I Swear I’m Going To Class

I love being near such a large city like Sydney. I can’t imagine there’s anyway I will see everything in Sydney, but I think so far I am doing a pretty good job. This past weekend my friends and I went to the Sydney Westfield Centre. I believe it is one of the tallest towers in Sydney if not the tallest. On the top is a place called the 360 Bar and Restaurant. It is exactly how it sounds 360 degrees of amazing views of Sydney. Did I mention the entire place spins?

It was a lot of fun to get dressed up with a lot of my friends. We went out to celebrate our friend, Chris, birthday. Chris turned 21 and even though the drinking age in Australia is 18, 21 is still a big day in Australia too because it means you are becoming an adult!

All the girls with Chris!

All the girls with Chris!

When we got to the bar it was amazing. The views there are unlike any other that I have seen so far in the city. One of the guys in our group just so happened to stumble upon the general manager without knowing and so we got free food! All in all if you are ever in Sydney it is a place you definitely must go and see. Grab a nice drink and take in the city around you.

This week my friends and I plan on going to the mansion where the Great Gatsby was filmed and we have a wine tasting/kangaroo/koala petting day on Friday! I swear I am going to classes! Something that I am thrilled to announce is that I accepted in the PACE International program. This means I will be working with 3 others on building a marketing campaign for India:Restless Development. I’m so thrilled to be able to say on resume and to others that I helped create an international marketing campaign!

Thanks to everyone back home who is keeping up with my blogs. To all the potential Butler students and to those of you who have recently accepted your spot in the Fall, I hope one thing you see through all my blog posts of Australia is the insane opportunities you will experience while at Butler. On top of that the support you will get from a small school in Indianapolis to a large one in Sydney, Australia.

    Friendly blog, friendly blogger! I feel that I visited Sydney by myself throughout what you write on blog.

  2. I’m a 21 year old freshman in my collage degree. First of all,
    I want to ask what the average score is for eighth graders that take the SSAT.
    I took it last year in 8th grade, and I got a 2010, which was the best score in my academy prep class (yeah,
    I took it at an academy). Is that a good start? Now i can start my Study, how it do?
