First Day

Well everything went really great! I took the bus and arrived at 8:30. My new class mates seem like a reasonable lot. A few are 17, but most are in their early twenties. The oldest person is 32, so it is mostly a youthful bunch and all are female---no surprise there.

Our tutor is called Sox, isn't that acute nickname? And she is so cute herself. Firstly we did introductions and then a little "speed dating" so we could familiarise with everyone. Then we got the "class rules" and our timetable for Week One.

After that we toured the campus. It is quite small, however it is minimalist and clean. It also feels quite homely. I felt totally comfortable there. Tomorrow I will get a locker so I can keep my handbag and equipment safe and I won't need to constantly haul it home by bus.

Yay! I've sort of got a routine!

Then we had a lunch break and I had my self packed food. See, I can feed myself! When we returned we got our contracts and were informed that we will start doing makeup tomorrow. I think she said we are going to "age" ourselves! Also, in the afternoon the senior students are going to give us makeovers. I don't know how I feel about that...I think it's exciting but at the same time, it's quite daunting. I've never had anyone do my makeup. We were also informed to not wear makeup on Friday. At this a look of displeasure passed over a few peoples faces. Mine included. Our teacher reassured us that the only people who would see us without the war paint would be the bus drivers and the stinky guy who seems to be an obligatory figure on all bus routes.

So yeah, that's all for now.

By the way...I'm watching The Great Johnston Brothers (I think that's what it's called). Oh. My. Gosh. This is lame. Norse Gods in Auckland??? So far fetched. My suspension of disbelief is stretched real thin.
