The Amazing Race - Rewa StylesHey ya-all, dont worry im trying not to go overkill on the updates... besides over the next few weeks i probably wont be able to update much, due to those things we love to hate - exams :p
Anyhow, Sat nite i went on a Kiwi/local version of 'The Amazing Race' (probably the closest ill ever get to being on the real thing sadly..unless they change the format to include Kiwis/Aussies) put on by Manurewa Baptist youthgroup. twas great :) really well organised. We went in and around the city and out South using buses, trains, cars etc and it included various road blocks and detours. A few teams were disqualified for taking their cars into town instead of taking the bus (yep they were a few of the guys teams) haha. My team came about 3rd to last overall i think, but yeah was good fun. The only not so great thing as a result from it, is i think i managed to pull the tendon or muscle (one of the two) in my leg...probably from when i did this sprint as part of the first road block :/ i like to think of myself as fairly fit seen as i walk to the train and around uni everyday but yeah...there is a vast difference in walking heaps and running, believe me. The latter i haven't done much of. ah well, hopefully it'll go away soon.
Last nite i started my defensive driving course :) was at MH. the guy leading it is a Cook Isl Maori guy, hard case but cool. We were given these 'street talk' log book thingies where ya have what he calls 'home assignments' to complete (he refused to call it homework heh) as well as other handouts to read. So yeah it goes for the next few weeks and then after that we get our certificate...roll on Jan man...then i can finally go for my full :)
Well i betta go finish off reading Macbeth for English. Then i need to go pick up another assignment and maybe go talk to the people at Arts Students Centre about how to plan out the rest of my degree. Im thinking of doing a double major in Hist & Geo but haven't finally decided just yet...
catch ya l8r all,
ps took a few pics of the Cambodia Team when they left on Fri. will try post the group one of them on here sometime soon...
