On the 15th of August it was my cousin Graeme's 21st birthday party at his house. When we first got there us three Anderson brothers joined some of the other guys from the family in the garage where they were having a few drinks and corn chips and just caught up with them. Our cousin Martyn was telling us about how he wants to try get in the army next year, or else he'll try study to become a primary school teacher which is pretty cool for him!
Once dinner was ready, we all went into the house for food and we caught up with our other cousins Greg, Janice, Korina and Nadine where we were told some...interesting stories...
Finally it was time to sing Graeme 'Happy Birthday' and the speeches! The cake was pretty cool, in the shape of a blue key with a photo of him as a little boy with chicken-pox!
After the speeches a few of his friends read out a poem they wrote about him which was cool.
We stayed on a little bit longer to discuss Graeme's older brother Jeremy's wedding with his girlfriend Asumi. Us three brothers will be playing music at their wedding so we have to start sorting out some music!
Two Saturday's later on the 29th it was Greg's (my other cousin) 21st birthday! There was a little miscommunication though and so we didn't end up showing up, but hopefully he had a great time!
Earlier that day though I helped out at the Pharmacy School's stand at the University of Auckland's Courses and Careers Day, trying to promote pharmacy. It was really fun, and a little ironic, seeing as my thoughts on pharmacy haven't been the most positive at times. When you get into it though, you forget all about what you think and end up selling it as if it's the best thing in the world! I sometimes accidentally say what I really think and dissed the medicine students next door...well not really diss them but mention that we correct their mistakes. A medicine student just happened to be reaching over to our table for some lollies when I mentioned that!
For some odd reason as well, the medicine stand was more popular than our pharmacy stand! I couldn't think of any possible reason to explain that! It was cool hanging out with the second year pharmacy students though. I also spotted Stephanie and Vanissa, two sisters from my youth group come by!
