Hi everyone,

I tend to be much more active on my Instagram account, find me at for some photos of my travels and the amazing beaches I call home.

Comment here and I will follow you back!

Do you have it? I'm very new to it, have basically no idea what is going on, but if you want to follow me:

I need a list of words for my art assignment, words/things that you associate with over-eating.

I just want a lot of perspectives on it.

thanks in advance!

Sell your country to me...

I'm from Australia, and I will have finished high school by this time next year.

Australians have a bit of a tradition called 'Schoolies' in which we are renowned to get crazy drunk on the Gold Coast.

Honestly, as well as the fact that when I finish high school I will still be too young to drink (17, ew), it doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.

So... where are you from?
And what is in your country that you think that every person should at least see in their lifetime?
I'm going to start saving now, and I am completely open to suggestions.

My head hurts.

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 30, 2010, 1:59 AM

I'm not really used to venting on dA, so bear with me :)

I'm worried about my heart, and not because of any stupid boys for once.

My blood pressure is high- 'hypertension'- usually around the 140/100 range.
My heart beats quickly -'tachycardia'- around 110 beats per minute.
And I get a lot of headaches.

I've had blood tests which knocked me out repeatedly, I've just had a brain scan, echo-cardiogram and an electrocardiograph and I have to do forty million urine tests (I know, too much information.)

Google is not my friend, it's turning me into a hypochondriac. It suggests I stop smoking, drinking and lose some weight. I guess you can see by my photographs that I'm not overweight, and I don't drink or smoke.

So that's the end of my vent, start of my fascination.
This deviation got over 5000 views in its first 24 hours, and gained me 600 pageviews in a single day. Can I just ask, HOW?

But, thankfully the world proved to me that it is not full of mean, dishonest people, and some WONDERFULLY AMAZING PERSON handed it in to the lost property at Perisher Ski Resort.

And so, my camera is a 7 hour drive away from me, soon be mailed, and hopefully here very soon.

Going on a massive school excursion to the snow, will probably not sign back on to dA for a week.

First time skiing too, so wish me luck :D
