I can't believe this is my last night here on the island! I can't describe it but it feels like I've been here for months one moment and only hours the next. This has been an experience I will never forget. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to be with amazing people who love and support me. Today we had to present our group projects to the class and I was so stressed about it. However, when I got up to speak I just felt this rush of love from everyone. Everyone had a smile on their face and you could just tell they cared. Everyone did a fantastic job, and it was cool to see how our projects would intertwine. Afterwards there was a mini "award" ceremony where our professors gave us marine toys. I was awarded the "comic relief" of the group. My toy was a cute little seal :) I don't think I have mentioned this before but the food here is absolutely! It's going to be hard to adjust to not having delicious feeling food for every meal. After lunch we went out into the beech area and played hide and go seek. I was the second to last person to get caught...but I kind of cheated apparently because I accidentally "passed" the boundary where we weren't suppose to be haha. I bought some pretty cool souvenirs today at the gift shop. Going to look so cool when I come back with a t shirt that says Heron Island Research Station ;) I also got some New Zealand candy and it was suppose to be white chocolate with caramel but it tasted a bit like root beer. At the moment I am just doing laundry and getting my stuff packed :'( However I can't wait for my roadtrip to Brisbane afterwards!

Dylan:"...you kick the can"
2)Tia: "So Hanna what do ferret toes look like?"
me: *tried to put two of my toes folded down*
Tia:Why is your eye twitching?!?!?
Me: "oh man there's raisins in this dessert!"
Bryce: "Do you not like raisins?"
Me: " No, I do but I had a bad experience where I ate a 2 lb bag of raisins and it kind of destroyed me"
Bryce: *look of horror* "How can you accidentally eat 2 lbs of raisins
Me:"You just keep grabbing handfuls until the bag is empty"
