Life transplant (moving to Melbourne)
Indefinitely putting off biology PhD, did a visual art course in the interim somehow. Have been working at a childcare place but as I'm moving city I'll be needing a new job.
Currently, I'm about to perform the great brisbane right-of-passage of moving to Melbourne.
I have a tendency to put leaves behind my ears when I get drunk. I like it when people ruffle my hair, so I assume other people do too- but maybe they donât. I was born by cesaerian and until I was eight I thought this was my star sign.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosted a few times, haven't surfed much. I've just moved into a flat by myself for the first time - in a new city to boot - so after a brief period of wallowing in luxurious personal space, will need some company.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Some time ago, our friend, the Zimbabwean Sculptress, happened to have her Pirate boyfriend's architect dad purchase an abandoned warehouse, so that he could knock it down to turn into appartments and become a wealthy man. However, complications of the red-tape kind stood in the way of his grand plans, and while the building lay in limbo, he silently slid the key to the sculptress daughter of his pirate son, to use it as she pleased.
And she invited us there, to drink wine in mood lighting and draw on the walls, and get up to other creative shenanigans. It was a beautiful period.
Teach, Learn, Share
Upon the discovery that the tree by our fireplace was a coffee tree, we googled how to make coffee beans from scratch. Made two drinkable cups!
Happy to play chess and do home brew stuff.
