Te Urewera National Park Chat Superthread

We've already been to:

- Australia
- Djibouti

And now we're going to Te Urewera National Park in a rugged part of the North Island of New Zealand. In the Maori language, Te Urewera means "the burnt penis".

Quite appropriately, besides getting 45ed as I made this thread, I'm also listening to Jakob, a fantastic post-rock band from Napier, which isn't really all that far from the Ureweras.

Jakob OWN. I'm hoping to see them in concert in May.

Oh, that list was only a brief portion of the end of the second African leg - of three. Djibouti was on the first leg ... and there was no Dikhil because I didn't know.

Have a good one!

Hope to see you around later.

Andrew's sure to have a field day with jokes in this thread.

I think I get a boost at the moment because I'm around when both the US and the Aussie crowds are. Once I'm back in university next week, that probably won't be the case nearly as much. Same for Ian. We probably won't be going through a thread a day then.

OH right...wow. I was wondering how you were posting so much when you had already mentioned your university schedule.

Yeah, the schedules were published last week and I found myself with quite possibly my second favourite schedule ever, and with major_panic in one of my tutorials.

My best schedule ever was my first semester of my first year of uni. It was:

MONDAY
Midday-2pm: Intro to International Relations lecture
2-3pm: Intro to International Relations tutorial
5-7pm: Europe 1200-1800 lecture
7-8pm: Europe 1200-1800 tutorial

WEDNESDAY
Midday-2pm: Modern Political Ideologies lecture
2-3pm: Modern Political Ideologies tutorial
4-6pm: Rise Of Modern Asia seminar

That was it!

And I lived just a 5 minute walk off campus too. It was so awesome.

OUCH. That for the fail.

I've only ever had to start before 10am a couple of times. The earliest was 9am. My experience is that early classes are shithouse and completely not worth it. The 9am tute I had, although convenient for me, mostly involved the ~10 of us sitting around staring at each other with sleep in our eyes. It was a Monday too, so at least half the tute would be hungover from the weekend.
