Thanks Dan,

There will come a time when you and your giggling mates could live, eat and smell like the Romans, the time is not now. I am sure Fijians would excuse you for dressing slightly less fashionable, if they know you are a student. My advice is quite simple really, make some personal adjustments and save some money.

You will need to have that sort of mindset because when you return to the Solomon Islands you will be earning much less than your student allowance. Unless of course you are some whiz kid, which, judging by your level of reasoning, you are obviously not. Your just a below average bloke with very high expectations! I feel sorry for you and your giggling mates. Looks like it will be a definite downgrade when you return!
