Not the zoo but...

Hey everyone... I know I was supposed to do my zoo update, but I don't really feel like doing it now. Tomorrow, really this time. I have started it, so when it is posted it will actually show up BEFORE this post... but I have other news...

To everyone who doesn't know this yet... today, I decided that I am going to cut my vacation just a little short... I am actually leaving 10 days earlier than planned, for a couple of reasons. 1 - I am not really DOING anything. Here in Byron it is pretty expensive, and all I am really doing is spending money on food and entertainment and accommodation... So I'd rather save a bit of money instead. 2 - I am missing everyone greatly :) 3 - I'm a bit bored here. I don't really have anyone to hang out with, everyone at this hostel seems to have their own little cliques and groups, and they all seem to be only concerned with getting drunk all the time... and I really don't feel like spending all that money to go out every night... It's kind of like a college atmosphere actually... so I'm sure I'd have a blast here 5-10 years ago :) I'm an old lady sometimes, but I would rather go out and have a good time at night with my friends as opposed to complete strangers.

And, as I said before, I am tired, and I just feel like being home among those who love me :)

AND all these bad things keep happening to me in the last week... first, I lose my camera, my watch, (and I didn't tell you about this) my pretty flower hair band that I JUST BOUGHT!

then, I have that problem with those stupid bed bugs at my last hostel. I was really hoping I would go home without ever having to experience bed bugs, but no. Even though the reception lady said "I don't think it is bed bugs" I am pretty sure they were. I noticed a line of red bites on my shin that definitely looked like them... so when I got to the hostel I am at now, I washed ALL my things, including my backpack and my suitcase. Which brings me to the next bad thing...

SOMEONE STOLE MY BACKPACK! It was empty (I had left it in the laundry room to dry overnight) and when I went back to get it, it was gone. Sure, I shouldn't have left it there overnight, but I didn't want to bring it into the room, it was wet... and I have NEVER had a problem with things getting stolen from me before in Australia... but I guess I am too trusting. Why would someone steal a backpack though? Oh wait, I'm in a hostel full of backpackers. I found out about the backpack getting stolen AFTER I made my decision to leave early though...

Anyhow, I am going to go now, and I'll update my zoo post tomorrow.

And I'll be back in the states on Wednesday!

I would go and knock on everyones door at the hostel introducing yourself and just casually glace around to see if you can find your backback!
Man that stinks. :(

Man, if you're old...what does that make me? Methuselah?

I can't believe someone stole your backpack. I'm so sorry. But hey...you will be seeing me in June so that makes everything a little better, right?
