Go Have a Sick

So I had a big whoops the other day and drank a little too much. Well a lot too much. I couldn’t drive home, so I crashed on a guy’s couch. And I woke up and that’s when I realized I drank too much. I ran to the sink and threw up. Little did I…

Those Prerequisites

Everybody loves the word prerequisite. That annoying, painful nuicence that is preventing you from moving forward. I was talking to a guy that didn’t have the necessary prerequisites to start graduate school with me and we were talking about what to do. Then we started talking about all the prerequisites that came with our undergraduate…

Take Advantage of Opportunities

I was chatting with my friend and we were talking about our biggest regret. And I have a few major ones. And she has a few big ones. But both of us really, really kick ourselves for one particular thing: not taking advantage of opportunities and resources in college (university). I remember she was saying…

Drop and Go

I met a girl who had just moved to Australia after a gnarly breakup. They had been every inch of each others’ lives and when they finally split, nobody knew how either of them would get on. She decided to come to Australia to deal with the breakup and she said at first it was…

The Young Homeless Man

I was talking to a gay guy from Brisbane and he was talking about how hard it is to be a gay man in Australia. Australia hasn’t legalised gay marriage yet, so imagine having to grow up in a country where it is illegal to love who you want, your parents shun and disown you,…

A Local in Paradise

I met a local Noosan yesterday and she was talking about her dog, what it’s like to live in paradise every day, and some of the places to visit in Australia. She has a staffy, which is essentially a miniature put bull. Her staffy was brown and the cutest dog ever! She was cuddly, playful,…

Never Have I Ever

There is no quicker way to get to know someone than ‘Never Have I Ever’. Played as a drinking game, a party game, or just a plain curiousity game, Never Have I Ever forces people to admit the most shameful of acts and events. It also leads to the stories of said shameful events. I…

Cooking Couples

I met a few couples on my trip to Fraser Island and it’s always funny to see them interact with each other and other people. There was one couple who was in our group and both were really nice, giving people. ┬áIt was especially funny watching them interact around dinner time. We were chopping the…

Foreign Teaching

I met an Irish teacher eligible to teach grades K-6 and it was a blast getting to know her and asking questions. She’s moving to Australia and trying to get sponsored and was sharing the difference in getting certified to teach in different states. In New South Wales, it’s incredibly easy. You just rock up,…
