i have no close friends living in the same city as me anymore, let alone the same country. i'm not the biggest fan of where i live, and now that everyone that made this place acceptable have gone it's worse. atleast as soon as i have finished studying i can be gone with this place and start my life in australia. don't get me wrong, i do love tauranga and new zealand. but, it's one of those places you can't live in for your whole life. the people here love drama and do everything and anything to create it. i can understand why everyone has left. all i can say is, autralia is going to be a wonderful place to live, and to actually start a life. but for now, tauranga it is.
