Dont worry we were all new here once upon a time!

You will find lots of great people here and no doubt make some great friends. We all have one common thread. . . . .our great love for U2 (you will probably find out soon enough there are many mad "Bonoists" here!).
Welcome fellow aussie.

Hello there! :-)

Armidale's not that isolated! It's a lovely city, I wish I could visit more often. What are you studying at uni? I went to QUT in Brisbane (I did Arts) but I would've ideally gone to UNE.

Where did you come from in Sydney? I grew up there, in Belmore. Although I haven't been back for years ...

Armidale is great i love it here, but it can really be a bit in the middle of no-where. im in my 2nd year of a 5 year degree... in for the long haul!! im studing arts/law... what are you doing with your arts degree?

in sydney im from the north, KIllara... between chatswood and hornsby. where are you at the moment?

ps thanks for making me feel like less of a blonde!!!

arts/law

welcome!

*from sydney(ish) too
a friend of mine lived in armidale for a year or so. she escaped in the middle of the night though. drove straight from there to blackheath up in the blue mountains.

well, that is completely irrelevant, but it was a conversation filler

October is lovely forbonou2. Unless you get hayfever August is the worst for it though. October is when it is starting to get warm, but you'll be way ahead of the horrible heat we can get...but being from Fl you're probably not phased by heat

Jessi, I dont think she had any problem with Armidale itself, more the boyfriend she was living with. Well, him and lonelieness But that was years ago.
What do I do? Good question I dont really do much at the moment. I'm working here and there, being a mum. Not much really Your post reminded me of how badly I want to go to uni and should have after the HSC. I want to do Art History and Criticism. UWS Kingswood used to be the only one apart from the ANU which ran it, but now the course structure has changed and I'm not sure it's the same degree anymore. I looked at doing the arts/law after year 12, but I didn't quite have the 95 TER it needed... Hmm, quite a ways off it actually lol.

i really wanted to do visual arts at uni, but my dad talked me out of it...
dont worry i didnt have the 99.4 to get into sydney uni... thats how i endded up at Armidale!!! cause there entry was like 20 or 15 marks lower than anywhere else...
if you wanted to art criticsm or law whats stopping you??? being a mum is lots of work, but if its a real dream and a passion whats stoping you?? you could do tafe or correspodents.... just an idea!!

Law is only post grad now isn't it? What;s stopping me? Well, I'm 27 for starters...I know age isn't an issue, you;re never too old etc etc...Money? I need money lol. And time. I guess I have the time, so it's really money. Such a cop out lol.

99.4 though. Wow. What do you want to do when you're done?

27... thats nothing... my dads is also a lawyer, and he has friends that started law late. one example is this lady who was a principle of a school, and is now a barister!!! never too old... its a 3 year course... and you can do it externally, so you dont have to attend class, and part time, you can take up too 10 years to do it, i think. UNE apparently has a really good external program, because loads of there students are external... you should look into it... there web site is
www.une.edu.au

i dont know what i want to do... ideally i would love to be an international lawyer, and perhaps work in London... my dad wants me to do all sorts of thinks. he's practically picked all my elective subjects out for me!!
but i dont know yet... im doing a double degree, two at once. so i havent had to pick any law electives yet... but soon!!! i am really an idealist and i would love to be an international lawyer in Human Rights or environment, but there is like 2 in australia... theres just no demand for those kind of lawyers.... garduating is still 3.5 years away... so i have haeps of time to think about it

I think you are right about moving to London. When I worked at Amnesty most of the lawyers where in London.
