Coffee Lounge! December 6

Being such a hot day in Byron Bay today, a hot coffee wasn’t too appealing! Instead we had a nice cold beer and tried to eat the TimTams before they all melted!

While enjoying the beers we played a round of Lexis Jenga and learnt a little bit more about each other from the questions on each tile.

 

For example, we found out that Francesco’s dream holiday is to be on the island of Bora Bora, preferably enjoying the company of 17 women! We also discovered Pauline’s most embarrassing moment was when she arrived at school for what she thought was a normal day only to realise she (and her mum) had totally forgotten about her school camp leaving that very morning! There was also a fairly unanimous agreement that if any of us had a billion dollars, it would be spent on travelling the world.

 

Beer Lounge! June 28

This afternoon at Beer Lounge we enjoyed drinking some beer and eating chips while asking “Have you ever…” questions of each other. The questions ranged from “Have you ever lied to your parents?” (which everyone all had at least while a teenager!) to “Have you ever eaten anything usually considered strange?” (which a lot of people had done – eating things like ostrich and alligator).

We found out that Natsumi used to eat chocolate straight out of the bulk bins at the supermarket, that Tom regularly has to bribe people in day-to-day life while living in Africa, Mayumi has often lied about her age (and did so even in this conversation!), that being robbed or mugged is a normal part of life for Juliano in Brazil and that Richard takes part in the dangerous sport of skydiving, though he maintains it is not actually dangerous at all!

While the answers to each question were different for everyone, there was one question that every student had the same answer for: “Have you ever made a major change in your life?” – moving to Australia to study at Lexis English Byron Bay!
