I like anime, videogames, cakes, kittens, green-tea, funny things, the people I follow.
I live in Australia, I'm 24, and I take the train heaps.
Nice to meet you, let's hang out sometime.
very obedient and conscientious, my parents mostly talked to me as if i were a grown up so i thought i was one, i had a box of plastic figurines - disney princesses and sesame street characters and so on, and they all had personalities (big bird was, for whatever reason, the grandma) and i used to line them up in very specific arrangements. i once made my pa laugh like a kid when i said “sheila”, i would have been about three. when i was seven i won a competition when i wrote a story about two friends on board the titanic. when i was eight i wrote to colin thiele and he wrote back. my mum was sick a lot, her specialist was named gideon and he looked exactly like a doctor looks, he had thin hairy wrists and curly dark hair and wire-rimmed glasses and hangdog eyes. st v’s was full of smackies and everything happened in the open, so he used to treat her at a smaller hospital about forty minutes from our house, it was on the edge of a creek with lots of eucalypts, the hospital was so small there wasn’t a cafeteria but there was a fishtank by the entrance and i used to walk my sister there to give my parents some time alone. the fish were not exotic. there were two angelfish and lots of smaller ones, silver and blue. in high school i was mostly good, i did ballet and netball and amnesty international and cross country and so on, two or three mornings a week i had to be at school for early-morning dance aerobics rehearsals and we all shivered in the cold gymnasium with its unforgiving floor, i got As, i drifted so bad in english classes i thought i’d go nuts with it, sometimes my teachers let me do the vce work but it always ended up just being extra because i’d still have to complete the year 9 or 10 assessments for report-writing, at lunchtimes we sat in the bike shed at the back of the oval away from the wind, they used to keep old theatre set-pieces there and we climbed on them to sit, the teachers never came by on yard duty because we were not the kinds of girls to smoke cigs and do unwholesome test-kisses or test-hands on each other, i liked assemblies because i could daydream, i liked our school preacher because he was an ex-bikie who was very openminded, gentle the way anglicans are, we did “ethics” classes and he talked about euthanasia and abortion and cults and mind power and i thought he was cool, he sort of looked like the fat controller and he had a great speaking voice, i read the newspapers every day, i used to go to the football with my dad, i got my first job when i was 13 so i could go and visit my childhood best friend, who lived in missouri, i went when i was 15 and i saw the snowy miswest and i didn’t forget it, once tasha and jasna and i met clare bowditch at a gig and we were so shy we almost didn’t talk to her, we were shy babies, my family was pretty poor for a lot of years and so all our holidays were driving holidays and i loved looking out the window and thinking up movies in my head, once walking home with tasha we nicked some figs from a neighbour’s branch overhanging a laneway and they were the best, in year 12 we studied 1984 and our teacher made us “live” the text, i got good grades so i was in the inner party and also the junior anti-sex league so i had to wear a red identifying sash. on school camp that year i brought red lipstick and got some of the gals to wear it and out english teacher was supposed to penalise it in the context of it being technically sexcrime, but he just laughed
