LivingItUp: Dinner, Golf, Beach, Bowling, Lunch, Dance

Another post in my 'Living It Up While I Still Can' series where I try and do as much fun activities with friends and family as I can possibly squeeze in before I take off for hopefully a year abroad in New York City starting March 2012.

It is now the second last weekend I have here at home before heading off to America, so naturally I am trying to make the most of it.

Friday night Brendan, Carolyn, Polly and I went out for dinner at a pretty nice restaurant, which turned into a really awesome night out. Made plenty of jokes with Brendan for most of the night, then Polly and I got into our increasingly frequent play fighting, where she thinks she can make a joke at my expense and simply get away with it but clearly she must forget who she is dealing with as I will always attempt to counter it ha. Good times.

Saturday I played golf with my mate Steve, which was an awesome idea to his credit as I haven't played golf for quite some time so that took up early afternoon. When I got back home Polly returned soon after and we just hung out at home for a while (which... yeah... sigh...). She helped me look up hostels for my upcoming trip to America, I made her laugh a lot which is always good.

Then for the third time now Polly and I took the dogs to the beach... which is killing me. This time felt even more 'couple like' than ever before. It was me who drove this time with her in the passenger seat next to me, and this does sound straight out of a sit-com but I kid you not on the way we actually had an argument about directions... ha! Granted it was a very fun and light-hearted argument, it was actually a hell of a lot of fun, but nothing says 'couples' like an argument about directions. I wrote about the day in more detail in my last post, because of course the day meant a lot more to me than she realizes. Oh well.

That night I went back to my parents house for a family gathering which was great, everyone loved the tattoo, and was also very interested in the upcoming trip, so it was a good night.

Sunday I hung out with my best mate Jason the entire day, met up with our best mate Karl for lunch, then our other best mates Michael and Steve for dinner and some ten-pin bowling. Turned into an epic night... those guys rock, they will be greatly missed.

I went home Sunday night so I could be home for Monday as it was a public holiday which meant Brendan and Polly (my housemates) would be home from work. The three of us went out for lunch with a few friends of ours which was great fun, then afterwards we went to the beach with the dog again. That night I went to Swing Dance class because I never get to go to the Monday class but obviously could today... yeah, Monday class is stupidly hard, it won't be missed ha.

So now is my final week to spend at home before the big trip. I have every day booked out with activities and catching up with friends, but I still have quite a few things to do for preparation (including buying my backpack which I still haven't done!). Not long now guys... yikes!
