Haha awesome. I'm following yours too
Awesome, thanks for that update Keri !
I'm also following your blog, and will be adding it to our list !
So...it would be kind of amazing if we could request a housing complex.
ARGH WHERE IS THE LIKE BUTTON - haha
it would be awesome.
touch wood we can!
haha which one would u choose???!!
I think Chatham seems to be ok, newer than Vista and cheaper than Patterson...but Patterson is so new and shiny lol. I'd prob say:
How about you?
im fairly sure that our options are pretty much only vista and chatham... i think i read somewhere that the other 2 are always taken up by american summer/college ppl.. while the other is the cultural reps. but not 100% sure of that!
I want patterson! haha
Lol I read the complete opposite, that vista is full of UK people, and patterson is where they chuck all the aussies (so i assume kiwis fit in with them too)
I def dont want vista. it sounds old and dirty and crappy haha, so if its between vista and chatham, i choose chatham
I guess we'll find out then the Jan people update their blogs lol
Just found out from STB our welcome packs will arrive in mid-march. Then we can start sussing out our visa's etc.
Yeah end of march/april
Ages away.. lol
I'm hoping for mid March Even though I can't book my appointment until May because of stupid prac lol it would still be nice to have it.
Do you guys know any January people with blogs?
Me too! I just want to get my visa asap!
Noo, just Jillian's videos on youtube. Loren from the jan group has some awesome photos on her facebook if you're friends with her!
So how is everyone saving going now that we're past the Christmas / New Year period ?
Getting excited? It's just over 5 months away !
SOOOOO EXCITED!!! ;D
Saving is okkaaayy, could always be better! But I think I have enough to buy insurance and my visa and my pre-disney package at Universal
Plus I have to pay for my Contiki trips too.. soo I definitely need to save heaps more. The more spare money I can take with me the better!
How are you going?
Haha, glad to hear it !
Sounds like you're definitely on your way! You'll have no trouble saving the extra !
My saving is going horribly at the moment, but that's cause I've had tons of bills to pay. Hopefully now that my bill period is out of the way I can start some real saving !
But I still have to get insurance / a video camera / some new lenses for my DSLR, lol.. I spend wayyy to much money
Oh I was going to ask your advice Mitchell, since you seem pretty tech-savvy.. do you know if laptops will run on American voltage? Like, I've brought the american plug thing but I don't know if I need to buy a voltage converter too seeing as the adapter doesn't convert voltage.. any idea?
Haha, I would consider my self pretty tech-savvy too .. (Yay for my IT Degree )
Yes, your laptop will work just fine. That annoying brick (aka power converter) that you have to carry around with you is dual voltage, meaning it will automatically detect American power and adjust itself accordingly. So all you need is the adapter
That's pretty much the same for all electronic devices. As long as the device has a power brick and says something similar to:
INPUT: 100-240V~ 1/5A 50-60Hz
Then they're all good. You're phone charger / iPod charger, etc will be all good too . If you're not sure about plugging something in when you get over there, just ask me and I will check it for you
Yay thanks so much!
Hooray for tech-savvy friends! lol
Hey Mitchell! I have a question about laptops in America too You know how certain websites only let you play videos if you are from the US? Well will they recognise that we are in the US even if we have a laptop from Australia? lol I'm not really sure how it works. Also will dvds from America work in our laptops because of the different regions?
Oh and my saving is going horribly lol I've used what I had on flights and pre disney activities. Thank goodness mum is paying for my insurance ;D
