hi! I'm alive, and doing really well.. and I think that's when it's easiest to forget to update this thing to remind you all of that. I am doing great! I am.. 25!! seriously, that's still a bit mind-boggling. but it was a really good one, and I got to spend it with a handful of people who have in some way made my trip to this country special.
Paul did the planning and we went to a place on the waterfront for dinner, and then to a few bars around the city. it ended up being a fun night with tons of dancing. perfect in my eyes.

since then, I've gone to a few beaches with my host family, and made a trip by myself to one of the big malls closer to downtown. it's nice to feel apart of something here. 
more than anything, I'm getting more and more excited for Ian and Mom to get here. it's less than 2 weeks now.. and the way time has been going by since I got into Papakura, it will probably be no time at all before they arrive!!
Sarah, my 'host mom', has told me that I'm free to take any little weekend trips that I like. so once the new year gets here, I think the travel bug will be itching again and I'll look into going south (Bay of Islands), or maybe flying to Australia or somewhere cheaper. it's great feeling that, even though we're out in what seems like the middle of nowhere, I'm able to take time for myself and get out and have some adventures. .. I'm also thinking it wouldn't be right if I didn't bungee jump before I leave this place. they invented it! so I may talk myself into that. we'll see...

for now, lots of pictures from the time spent with the kiddos, and some from my bday.
love from tomorrow!!

Yea, it's weird heh? You should definately do the jump Heather, you'll always be wishing you did if you've left yourself no other option.
Get it out of your system! DO IT NOW!
And Arnold is expended...
