Day Five: Time to Jive
Basically today consisted of Jokes of Hanna and me missing out on cool things and messing up all of the group photos.
Apparently, the morning swim with Edd was exciting. I fell asleep instead. We adventured out into the deep blue again. It seems to be the norm for me to be right where something fun or interesting happens and then vanish right as the thing I wanted to see happens. I missed sea turtles, sharks, and the manta ray. I was right next to the area we saw it but in the instant it showed up decided to leave, I guess. And I guess I also left Hanna and she drifted off into the distant waters until Melissa rescued her. This is just an accusation. Never happened. Also, apparently Colt found a giant cone shell and I really wish I was there to see it.
Instead of helping Audree with her project, I ended up sleeping and going for a walk with Bryce, Kim, Tia, and Kam / Camp / Sarit. We had a good time talking about dogs and watching Sarit / Kam / Camp catch guitar sharks with his ninja Thia skills. We were just strollin and chillin on the beech and than Camp / Sarit / Kam saw a broom. The broom offered some eventful, quality comedy. I got to pose with mermaids and not look like a pimp. Also, ferret tag is pretty rad. Look it up if you’re interested. Boy do I need to get back into running and climbing. We also saw a crab. My train of thought is quite consistent and fluid, obviously.
Just a comment, I would include pictures but I have thoroughly enjoyed not using my phone for the better part of two weeks and that has been wonderful. I’m going to do my best to continue that habit when I get back to the states. In other words, I will be and Aussie tanned, super hunky fit, science babe who doesn’t use his phone by the end of the summer.
Prior to our lecture, Edd and Trisha decided it was a good time to try and take some good group photos. It was hilarious watching everyone tumble off of the triangle they tried to build. Apparently, if you asked Trisha, I ended up messing up every photo that was good. In some way I made the photos look awkward whether it was by me being more attractive or confident than others or just from not being nervous to show my “features”. But it was all in good fun. Sea cucumbers make for quality props.
We also got more insight into the history of ferret fingers at dinner. That was a hoot. I think that is what I have enjoyed most about this trip. It is a combination between science and education and then just having human, entertaining conversations with really fun and interesting people. I have thoroughly enjoyed up to now the opportunity to get to know just a diverse group of people. We are all friends and it is really showing in the fun that we have that we are comfortable with each other and starting to settle in as a group of science-fied yeehahs.
Tomorrow Hanna’s and mine group project will begin. Let’s hope Edd and Trisha don’t think our idea sucks haha.
Good night ya’ll.
