When I walk down the street, I usually get weird looks, so I'm used to it now. Its taken me a while to figure out why though, my grandma says I stick out of the crowed like a sore thumb, and she's right.New Zealand is a nation of sheep, we cant do anything individually , and look towards neighbouring countries for new ideas, so that we can then steal them for our own. Whether it is fashion, language or stunts and pranks from movies us kiwis will be there, copying everyone else like fish too eager to bite at a dangling hook.Lately the cool thing to copy is "image" and fashion. Personally I REFUSE to be a sheep, but its sooo hard in today's modern society with all the peer pressure & bullying. My mother like the way I dress though, she said that the way I dress is cool, and my style is "original"YEA RIGHT!!!

The funny thing is that although we spent over half an hour in that nightmare, we left empty handed, as I basically have the same clothes in that store. But it did leave me wondering whether I should change my style of dress before I too become a sheepAnother thing us kiwis have stolen is language, we all speak English, but we are not all Englanders now are we? O.k. I must admit though, our New Zealand vocabulary is pretty lame, with most of it resulting from our Maori cousins.My family in Australia are constantly mocking us as a nation, and have this big idea that we all walk round saying "oh cher cuz, gots us those mags that I gave you last week? Coz my uncle wants them for...
