Ideals

Blog for general things, my life, what I find cool, things I find inaccurate, questions no-one asked but I'm answering anyway, welcome. Cis white female sexuality undefined, judge my commentary.

It’s odd, I’m in Germany and watching a program about Australian outback truckers. It’s dubbed but you can still semi hear the base track, and like the contrast between the dubbing voices with no accents and the base track with accents is pretty funny.

I’ll reblog this in the morning, when Australia is actually awake, but…

I collaborated with some fellow political tragics on this info-thing about the Abbott government’s proposed changes to Medicare and the pharmaceutical benefits scheme, based on this study from the University of Sydney (PDF).

There’s also a single-image version, on my website.

Please reblog and share however you can! Even if you’re not Australian but you like the cute animals and maybe some of your followers are Australian, for example?

Anonymous asked: Re you're opinion on Paris, I completely agree. I thought it was noisy, dirty and I've never seen such blatant disrespect for the public transport system (saw way too many people jumping over the ticket barriers). Within the first day I learnt not to go to any "tourist attractions" because I got sick of people trying to sell me shit.. but maybe it's because of where I live now or maybe it was my partner constantly pointing out all the negatives (he's French and hates Paris so slightly biased)

Yeah I enjoyed it well enough, but it was just another city for me.
I mean I spent my teenage years living in Europe with my family and before that in Australia so when I went to Paris it was just not what I’d grown to expect at the end of thousands of kilometres of plane travel. Maybe it’s also partially cause people build it up to be this great thing and at the end of the day it’s another city with a business district and famous buildings and galleries and body of water. Like I just didn’t find anything special about it. Then again maybe if I’d been with friends, it would have been a different experience.

this is the most beautiful photo of paris ive ever seen, it really does the amazing city justice wow

imagine waking up by some rays of sun, you open your eyes and see your boyfriend. he quickly grabs a filthy shirt that he finds on the ground, gives you a forhead kiss and then leaves to get you two some coffee and croissants. you get up, walk to the balcony and then see this stunning view..

I miss Paris.

I will be there soon

Why do all these fantasies seem to hate washing and ironing? What’s wrong with wanting a clean pressed shirt from a wardrobe? 

Unpopular opinion: Paris isn’t that great, like it’s nice enough but like having been to a lot of European countries and cities, Paris is eh. Personally I’ve found Zurich and Venice much nicer. And when people say they miss Paris, and they were there for like a week or two, and they miss it, that’s like nothing, it’s like Paris as an idea rather than reproduction of a memory which is what it would be had it been a resident, sort of similar to homesickness, something I’ve experienced. It’s odd to me is all, that people get this selective cultural thing about Paris, when like other parts of France and Europe exist to visit but people keep going back to Paris, like with no family there or anything.

So in the past week

I flew to Germany on Tuesday, to see my Dad. He lives in Munich, it’s nice and Summer unlike cold Australian weather. I am also having to do University work though, so not entirely on holiday.

I have gotten glasses (in Munich) that I need to wear all the time because one of my eyes is short-sighted and one is long-sighted, not dramatically, just like enough. 

Went shopping yesterday, which was nice, and had family dinners which we don’t have at home, you know it’s pleasant. Karan and Anahita are pretty lovely, semi-siblings I guess, I dunno how to define that relationship, but it’s fun.

Anshoo’s mum arrives tomorrow which is exciting, she’s really nice, we stayed at her house in New Delhi, so yeah fun.

Got over my jetlag pretty quickly as well which was great, now I’m avoiding writing my 850 word essay which is due on Sunday. I also have a 1500 word critical analysis due next Friday, which I have to do and a 4 minute oral presentation due 2 weeks later, YAY, uni.

But that’s all, the glasses were definitely a bit of a curve ball, slight bonus, literally every pair I tried on suited my face, so that’s good I guess.

You were the greats. We miss you.

you mean i cant watch them anymore what 

Why is Sesame Street on this list? It’s still running, as is Arthur although that did go on a hiatus for several years, so I can understand that. But yeah Sesame Street is still running and has been for 44 years?
