A Review

The news there is so different...how do you see it? From where you are now...how do you see things coming home?

The news that comes up on the TV over here is very different from that of in the US. It focuses A LOT on what is happening in New Zealand, even if it is a story such as a cat that was stealing people's "nickers" ---true story. The news probably only focuses about 15 minutes of the whole program on what is happening elsewhere around the globe. So, to me, Kiwi news seems very limited and the horizons aren't spread as much as I would like. But, I'm rather opinionated about this topic.

Coming home, I now will appreciate the prices of food and clothes. I will miss being able to walk to wherever I need to be on a daily basis; however, I will be glad to be able to use a car again to get somewhere farther. I'll miss the variety of people I have met here, since Michigan isn't exactly home to a diverse assemblage (oooh look at them biology terms comin' out!). I am surprised though about how close-minded people here are, probably because we live on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and the nearest neighbor landmass is a 3-hour flight away. But don't get me wrong, I have met some really interesting folks down here!

Over all, I feel very lucky to have had such an opportunity. I believe I have really grown and spread my wings as an individual and have met a great variety of people from around the globe as well as seen some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world. I'll miss that part of New Zealand the most.
