Study Abroad - Australia! [06 Oct 2008|11:07am]


I am writing to ask for information, please. I am an American looking to travel to Australia for a semester in Spring 2009. I am currently trying to pick just where to go!

I would love it if any of you would share your favorite places, information about Universities, or where you would live in Australia if you could live anywhere.

I am a Hospitality major, with an emphasis in event planning, if that helps!

Thank you so much!

Missy Higgins Sheet Music [26 Sep 2008|10:23pm]

In the US Missy's sheet music hasn't become available. Is anyone able to scan the "On a Clear Night" sheet music? Or "The Sounds of White"?

I would be endlessly grateful.

Thank you.

Human Rights Photography Competition [29 Aug 2008|03:43pm]


To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission is holding a photo competition based on the theme - ‘Dignity and justice for all of us’.

We're searching for images that reflect the theme of the competition and provide a unique approach to a human rights subject. For some, the photograph will record a moment that celebrates dignity and justice; for others, it will capture fundamental rights and freedoms being recognised; or it may be an observance of what human rights means to you.

Entry categories - under 18 female, under 18 male, 18 and above.

Great prizes and entry is free.

Entries close 31 October 2008.

Semiotic [24 Aug 2008|02:14pm]

Hey all,
Just thought I'd let you know of forums that are set on hopefully changing the world. We're all about politics, beliefs, causes, petitions and awareness.
It's a community of engaging debates including looking for the meaning of life, superficialities, peace in the Middle East, the way our world is run and going.

But, don't be scared, we also know how to have fun. =]]
Would love to you see there.

Hi all, I thought some of you might be interested in this, particularly as a way of meeting new people in the Brisbane area:

Makers Group – Carindale library

Are you a maker? Do you paint, craft, make models, build robots, grow your own veges, keep chooks, make your own clothes, sculpt, write stories, illustrate or do anything else creative or home grown? 

Come and join fellow Makers at the Carindale library every second Tuesday from 12-4pm, starting September 2nd.

Each week a volunteer from the group will hold an informal workshop on a favorite maker project. The first workshop will be Coptic Binding and Book Making with Renee Dillon, a local artist.

Book a place or just show up.  Absolutely everyone is welcome!

I know this isn't on topic and feel free to delete it mods. But I recently lost a member of my family to cancer and now my father has been diagnosed. I was searching for an active community about cancer and most of them only posted about every 2 weeks, which I don't really call active. (point me in the right direction if I'm wrong because I was sure I'd find at least one really active community)

So anyway, I created one. its_cancer

question [21 Jan 2008|07:18pm]

Hey. How is everyone doing? I was actually born in Australia, but I moved to the states when I was almost 4. I was just wanting to meet some people who either are from Australia and moved, or are still in Australia. Just for old times sake. :)

Anyone go to Falls, or know someone who did? [16 Jan 2008|01:58pm]

Hey everybody... listen up! If you went to the Falls Festival in Tasmania '07/'08, you could get a free drink!
That is, if you are a pretty girl who was wearing a white dress and at the front of the mosh pit when Gotye went on! Remember that cameraman on the stage, who signaled to you to ask if you wanted a drink? He'd still like to buy it for you!

If this is you, or if you wanna help out with this worthy cause...
visit: www.doyoustillwantthatdrink.com

for the win!

Missy Higgins music [12 Sep 2007|11:43pm]

[ mood | rushed ]

I was wondering if anyone could help me out--I want to sing a Missy Higgins song for an audition I have in a few days, but the only sheet music I can find to buy is coming from Australia and would take too long to get here (unless I pay billions of dollars to get overnight shipping). I was wondering if anyone has Missy Higgins sheet music they might be willing to scan and email to me? I would be eternally grateful!

I relocated all of the megafauna to the USA. I thought the locals might get a real kick up the backside from the giant kangaroos. :)

Hi :)

I'm hoping to do a semester of study abroad in Australia, specifically the Atherton Tablelands in Northern Queensland. As a preparatory project, I'm supposed to be reading books to learn about the culture, ecology, politics, basically anything and everything about Australia.

So what I'm asking, is if anyone can recommend some great books that I should read? It can be pretty much any style - fiction or nonfiction.

Thanks for the help!
