Life is good.
It's so beautiful here.
There's been a few days when the mountains had snowy tops.
I've been looking for a J.O.B. but in the meantime I've been doing temp work and hanging around town.
|Bad photo. But I'm enjoying a monster beer at Cowboys. I even tried to ride the mechanical bull. I didn't do well....|
No skills and apparently no dignity. Hahaha.
I live in a cute little hostel called Bumbles, which is full of fun and friendly backpackers. I work at the hostel to pay for my bed. One less expense while I search for work.
|This is hanging up in my dorm. It's like they knew I was coming...|

The temp work I've been doing has been a little housekeeping (lame) and working big functions at the Skyline restaurant. Which is definitely my preferred temp job. We get to feast on the gourmet dinners they serve. One night I had four desserts. Pork alert!
Plus, I love the commute.

|"Would you car for another drink, sir?"|
I've had a few interviews but no jobs. I have my fingers crossed that I might get hired at Outdoor World, the REI of NZ.
|A covert lakeside band. They set up a hundred candles and played great tunes till the cops shut it down. Bad photo tho...|

In the meantime, I've been enjoying the gorgeous views and bumping night life of this little resort town.

I've been pretty busy, with temp work and working at the hostel. I actually haven't had a full day off in 2 weeks. So I hope to get out and about and do some hiking on my days off this week.
