My Bio
1st Gen australian, grew up in the Motherland, moved back at 10yo. I'm into quiet-ish fun, drives, getting lost in good company, Japanese cuisine, latin parties and getting active.
I love my music and I listen to just about anything, except rap. **shudder**
I also like to sing. A lot. Love it or Leave it!

I'm interested in learning Japanese, German and French. (not over-reaching at all...) To update - I have now learned good Spanish.
I'd also like to actually use the damned guitar I bought years ago, but I haven't made the time or acquired the patience.

I write these and I wonder if anyone actually reads them. XD Maybe my girl in Nebraska. Hehe... She might be the only soul I know still on dA, though like everyone else, life gravitated us towards other pursuits. Happy Belated New Year! May 2018 be a better and more prosperous year for everyone! **cough** Backtome... So, to resume the happenings of the last few months. I spent part of November all of December fighting off god-knows-what kind of virus, thanks to a) lovely doctors that still don't listen to a patient telling them that they will need a repeat, b) getting so stupidly run-down because of financial and mental stress, thanks to

 So here I am. Five months later. I might not have gotten a job just yet, but things are getting better everyday. I've gone and done something I never thought I would. After a relatively short amount of consideration, I am now officially enrolled to do the "Bachelor of Applied Sciences (Architectural Science)". Holy f00k. I'm still in a bit of shock that I did it and I really need to start looking at the pre-course preparation modules. This is going to be intense, you just know it. So there's that. In the creative sector, I've got so many projects. Have been getting into a bit of planning mode with a novel idea. At first I was put off b

So, this is it... In just over a week, I start the long drive down to Sydney, to start a new life. I've no idea what the future holds. To say I'm super happy, is a lie - I've got too many conflicting emotions. However, I am excited by the prospect of starting somewhere new, job-wise I mean, where no-one knows me or my personal life.

I want to see if I can produce some sort of income from artworks. Hopefully, people w
