I need a mojito, a massage and a holiday.

Anonymous asked: What's your ideal guy then?
oh I don’t know. Tall? ability to grow a beard?
I do think - & I hate to box myself like this but it’s just becoming more apparent as the years go on - I need to be with someone who is similar to me intellectually and ideologically. I need to be with someone who can follow while I rant about something (e.g. human rights issues) - & agree with me morally - but still be able to throw a curve ball that leaves me scurrying for the library; caught up in an ideological crisis. Just because he knows that I am forever wanting to broaden my thinking.
Not asking for much, am I? ;)
Anonymous asked: Lucky about getting your job!
I worked my ass off for four years to maintain a distinction average whilst volunteering at the United Nations Association & World Vision (not to mention the part-time paid jobs so I could afford to eat). Then completed a three-month legal internship in South Africa whilst studying by correspondence, then moved promptly into full-time employment two days after returning to Australia, where I worked my ass off for a year whilst volunteering at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre & working on a Masters Degree at the University of Sydney…
So yeah, I guess I’m just lucky.

lucky with what?
Anonymous asked: Hey, did I read you were changing postgrad degrees?
are you another twitter follower hiding behind anon? come on guuyssss, I won’t bite D:
also yes, hopefully. I really didn’t like doing uni by correspondence, so I’m trying for something a little closer to home. Submitted by application for Human Rights Law at University of Melbourne on Thursday :) fingers crossed!
Anonymous asked: You're young for a national charity manager! How did you get the job?
I dunno, I earned it?
(I was friends with the dude hiring for the position though, that helped.)

so *naturally* that must mean we are meant for one another.

Anonymous asked: have you had a threesome? if not, would you ever consider it? obviously there would be variables but yeah...
no I’ve never had a threesome but yes, it would be something I’d consider. Gotta try everything once, right?
Anonymous asked: What's the most intense hatred you've ever felt for somebody?
You know, when I stop & think about it, no names of people I personally know come to mind. I have the complete inability to hate people I’ve met before. I’ll dislike people, or perhaps feel pity for them if I’m being particularly condescending; but never hate.
Hatred is usually reserved for figureheads; people who epitomise things I hate, like systematic racism or human rights abuses or sexism. I can say now that I harbour an intense hatred for Tony Abbott & Scott Morrison; so much so that I want to catch a bus to Canberra, beat down their doors & scream at them until they begin to understand the idea of human compassion. But that is because they are figureheads of a policy that horrifies me. I could meet them & they could be lovely & I wouldn’t be able to feel hatred for them anymore.
Anonymous asked: I don't know, like… On twitter you said that you texted him about your flat tyre and he called in like 20 seconds. Then you said you had a really nice chat. What's so bad about that?
Yeah, I know. It’s just like… Ugh. This shouldn’t even be happening. He is the personification of so many things I hate. I’m not even joking, seriously. There are things about him that disgust me. Not to mention he’s a decade older than me & a co-worker. I don’t want to be daydreaming about him & I don’t want him to be concerned about my wellbeing & I don’t want to be having nice chats where he makes me laugh.
