I gave my one-month notice for my flat. I need to be out around the 12 of January. I'm going to be homeless again. I do have a bit of an agreement with Beca now; there may be some contract work in Gisborne for me around the end of January. I would get some extra cash and a few weeks accommodations out of it
My active lifestyle has taken a bit of a hiatus lately. I've pulled my calf running, so that is out of the question, and social activities have been interfering with my gym routine. Almost all of the activity I do now is surfing. And maybe marathon drinking.
I have been out with a number of different t people lately. Christmas time seems to bring out the party in New Zealand. Last Thursday the company paid to send us to Auckland, where I proceeded to drink myself stupid. Long story short; karaoke till two in the morning, work at 8:30.
Saturday found me out at a house party with some different people from work. I got an invite to an "orphan's" Christmas and New Year's.
I got my family's Christmas package out a seek or so ago. It probably won't get there in time, but it is on the way and off of my mind. I managed to get my photos backed up onto 3 CDs and sent off. Now I can clear my card and start all over again.
I am now constantly reminded of Christmas, but fortunately I think I have become numb to its effects. I think that the only Christmas push here is all commercial based, and the whole spending time with loved ones Mickey-Mouse crap has been lost on the Kiwis. Some part of me realizes that this should be a sad thing, but in fact, the realization has brought relief.
