Just going to have a little say about the Australian benefits system (Centrelink). As an 18+ year old, full time student, I’m paid a little over $277 a fortnight. Per fortnight, I pay my mother $200 in board. I spend $62.40 on transport to university a fortnight, at least. That gives me $14.60 to live off per fortnight. So using my $7.30 a week, I’m expected to pay off my $1,000 debt to my mother for my car. I’m expected to also pay for my fuel ($40/week), insurance ($28/month) and registration ($600+/year). This is in addition to my phone ($39.90/month) and gym ($14/week). Plus $570 in textbooks per semester, roughly. I understand that I can go without my gym, car and phone - but how is a full time student expected to survive off $7 a week? I may sound ungrateful, but I cannot afford to do anything.
Though, add in the fact that I have a cash in hand job, and so Centrelink doesn’t know about it, I’m adding about $100-180 a week to that. Yet, I still can’t afford the above. And if Centrelink knew about my job and if it wasn’t cash in hand, they’d dock my pay to less than what it is.
But hey, as long as Mr Tony Abbot is happy and comfortable with his $500,00+ a year pay.

Posts like these matter because so many people assume that the government gives you enough to survive but really
They don’t

I qualify for a grand total of $0 from centrelink, as a full time student who is currently looking for work. Our ‘benefots’ system sucks

I am not able to even consider applying for centrelink as a full time student because despite being able to live here, have a job, get medicare, NZ’ers have basically an impossible time applying for citizenship. Oh did i mention I pay uni fees upfront?

So my weekend consisted of work, spontaneous trip to Byron, having a free day ticket to Blues fest, seeing a few bands including John Butler Trio (Awesome), Sex, Beach, Sex, Food, Food, Sex, Food, Costume Party, Sex, Food. 

And some breathing thrown in there somewhere.

Awesome

I had the weirdest dream…

April 13th, 2014

I have lost all interest in Tumblr, it no longer is the little community that made me want to log in and converse with the people that followed me, and that I followed, I crave for that sense of ‘belonging’; I have made so many friendships on this site, developed so many close relationships, more so than on any other ‘social’ network.

No more however, does this continue here, there is nothing keeping me here. This place is just an echo of what used to be, a memory, a kind reminder of a past once lived. 

A shame really, a harsh reality that as things grow bigger, they are no longer intimate.

My girlfriend points out hot girls before I even see them.

I tried to smoke pot for the first time when I was 14. Figured I could sneak a few puffs off my big sister’s little glass piece. Stuck it in my mouth trying to figure out which end I was supposed to smoke from. Tasted peculiar. Plus, I just couldn’t get how to work the thing. Eventually, I discovered that these smoking devices typically have a little indentation where the marijauna is supposed to go as well as a pathway inside of it which allows you to inhale the smoke. Glass buttplugs don’t have either of these, which is an important distinction.
