So the holidays ended and Marie had to go back home so life eventually settled down from the non-stop party it had become. Life got real.
I acquired a job as a bartender/server/barista at a newish place in town called The Pier Cafe and Lounge. It was a love hate kind of gig. Nothing much else too exciting happened this summer. Never really went out or did anything. Just worked and tried to save money. Went to the wine festival in Kerkeri with Emily, Rachel and Pam. That was a good time. It was a beautiful summer in the bay. Barely any rain, actually a drought was declared in some of NZ. So very different from last summer.
Other than that I just panicked about having to leave Paihia and New Zealand while trying to figure out where to go and what to see in the country before I'm gone.
