Hey! Glad to hear from a Kiwi :). The college experience is very different here in the US- in my opinion it’s more of a departure from high school then Uni in NZ. I had a lot of fun in Auckland and can’t wait to come back and explore more of the country. Come to Pittsburgh and visit there’s lot of fun cities around here!

Q: Hey I was looking through my list of who I followed and I saw YOU! Lol... this is probably super random but whatever right? I remember when I first followed you, I loved looking through your blog and reading/seeing what you had to say about my home country :) gah and now I just read your "Who am I!?" and like I literally "awed" when I read the part where you said "the blog has officially ended" I think I'm about over a year late with this message but I loved your blog and reading your posts.
This makes me so happy! I don’t contribute anything to the blog anymore but I will definitely publish this. I loved New Zealand and will be returning in a few years to explore more. And I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been thinking about doing a blog “Adventures in Pittsburgh”. Guess I should get started.

I have a program that helps train future workers in Pennsylvania, and it also comes in four parts:
- University of Pittsburgh
- Penn State University
- Lincoln University
- Temple University
As well as Lock Haven University and all the other PASSHE schools.
Certainly Lockhaven, Slippery Rock, Bloomsburg…
The solution to our problem is to not cut funding. The solution is not form a committee about it. Just wait til 2014, Governor Corbett, PA has a lot of students, and we are aware of what you’re doing.

Cutest Call To Action Ever of the Day: On October 5, the container ship MV Rena ran aground on Astrolabe Reef, resulting in an oil spill that is already being regarded as the worst environmental disaster in New Zealand’s history.
Clean up efforts are underway, but the danger to local wildlife remains high. A raft of Little Blue Penguins has already been negatively impacted by the spill.
The Kiwi yarn store Skeinz has put out a call for penguin sweaters — an adorable-sounding but very necessary accessory that helps keep the birds from preening their feathers and ingesting the oil.
Skeinz has posted knitting instructions for anyone willing to lend a hand.
