I am your average chick living in Australia. I love writing. I've had a couple of short stories and a poem published, but my dream is to get some novels published too, so I'm continuing to aspire towards that goal.

My mates mean the world to me and I can be a real little cunt if you mess with them. I'm also an absolute bitch if you mess with me. I am a passionate human rights supporter (especially for LGBT rights) and my biggest belief is that we are alive to live, to have the time of our lives and to love. And that's about it. That's me in a nutshell.


Current Residence
I come from a land DOWN UNDER... something something...vegemite sandwich...

Favourite genre of music
Rock, Alternative, Metal, Punk... the heavy stuff

Favourite style of art
Photography, Literature

Operating System
My way ;) Also, Windows.

Favourite cartoon character
Zuko or Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender

Personal Quote
Live as if you'll die tomorrow... Dream as if you'll live forever.
Interests

  • Reading: Rash by Pete Hautman
  • Drinking: bourbon and coke (with my daddy, cuz we're cool)
That awesome moment when your boss's boss comes up to you during your shift and gives you a second job on a silver platter. 

I still get to keep my original job at the library helping people use the library and university facilities and recording statistics, but now I also get to work up in one of the offices doing writing and communications stuff. 

This is great for me! It's real industry experience and, just sayin', being employed by a university is good pay. 

I'm going to have to learn to balance my assignments with the amount of work I'm suddenly getting with the second job (more shifts and longer hours than the first job). But it's doable and I won't say no to good pay, fair work, and awesome on-the-job experience. 

Who knows, maybe I really will get to stay at university forever... AND get paid for it. :) 

On top of all that, the final edition of the student magazine I'm taking over is coming together nicely. I feel like I'm under a lot of pressure to live up to the expectations set by previous editions, especially since this year's stuff has been so good. I think the production team and the girls I'm taking over from are happy with how I'm handling everything though. I appreciate that they have so much confidence in me. It helps me believe that I really will be able to live up to their expectations. 

The next week is going to be dedicated to revising a script I'm writing for a theatre company. A friend of mine asked me to do this because she wants me to direct it. We are meeting with the theatre company next weekend to get that last bit of approval before we officially announce whether or not it will all go ahead, so between now and then I want to do whatever I can to make the script the best it can possibly be. I'm quite excited about this and pretty confident. My friend and her family, who are all involved in the theatre company, seem really happy with the draft of the script they've seen. After some constructive feedback, I think I can deliver what they want on time. 

Of course, plenty of bad stuff has been happening to counter all this amazingness. However, I prefer to focus on the good things in life and be grateful. It makes all the bad stuff easier to handle and puts things in perspective. 

Fingers crossed things keep going this well for me.
