"Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than things you did"
I’m 25, born and bred in Melbourne and it will always be my home. I've finally (I think?!) finished studying - in my undergrad I did a Bachelor of Psychology and Management/Marketing, but when I wasn’t ready to venture out into the real world after that I went back to do a Master of Business and a Master of Journalism. Still not sure about this whole ‘real world’ concept, hence when I couldn't get the full time job I wanted in Melbs, I went for the Fiji option! I’m passionate about sport, particularly AFL (go cats!) so when I do actually get down to business I would love to work in sports marketing or sports journalism. Or someone could just pay me to travel ☺
Duh…travelling. Particularly planning a trip – it’s like when you’re a kid and look forward to Christmas; the lead up is half the fun. Often when I’m heading off on a trip in the back of my mind I’m already thinking about what I can do when I get home to save up money for the next one…
I also am a bit of a nerd and love reading and amateur (very amateur) photography, however, unfortunately between uni and working three jobs when I’m at home, there is precious little spare time for such pastimes, and thus hobbies two and three can only take place whilst simultaneously undertaking hobby one – travelling.
I also enjoy watching sport, talking about sport, arguing about sport…I can watch pretty much anything (particularly if Jimmy Bartel’s involved!) However, my heart lies with the mighty cats, so lets just say that it’s a godsend I like to travel during the Australian summer, as there’s absolutely nothing to watch on TV! And I’m very pleased to say that a day in 2011 as newly taken over as the best day of my life – Saturday October 1st, when Geelong beat Collingwood in the Grand Final by 38 points ☺
However, I’m not that shallow, I do have other interests… I trained as an elite rhythmic gymnast for 7 years, and was privileged to train alongside some of Australia’s most talented gymnasts and coaches. Now I am a coach myself, and love being able to contribute back to such a small sport with the knowledge I have gained throughout my adolescence.
As Dorothy said, there’s no place like home, but especially when you live in the world’s most livable city! However, besides Australia...Cambodia is the best country is the world...with the heart of that being Siem Reap <3
