Chrissie

Age: nearly 25… eeep!

Course: Bachelor of Secondary Education, English & History

Year of progress in course: third

Dream job: setting up community schools in developing countries.

What’s the one thing that sets you apart from other students: I’m just a pleb like the rest of you J

Which TV character best matches your personality: Doug. I’m just a cool kid trying to get by in this crazy world.

Your favourite three books: Brave New World – Huxley. Papillon – Charrière. The Gruffalo – Donaldson.

Your favourite three movies: Waking Life. The Last Supper. Almost Famous.

Describe your music tastes: I’m of the iPod generation – a bit of everything on shuffle.

What do you do in your free time: Everything I can – I volunteer with the SES, and disadvantaged youth, I hang out with friends & family, I love to cook, go bike riding, running, camping, and one of my greatest passions is travel.

You can invite five people (dead, alive or fictional) to dinner – who would they be: Sasha Baron Cohen (the comedic genius of our time), Henri Charrière (author of Papillon and Banco, French convict, adventurer and daring escape-artist), Bob Dylan (no explanation required), Ghandi (‘be the change you want to see in the world’), and Oprah.

What makes you happy: the pursuit of adventure!

If you could choose one super power – what would it be: Teleportation. I would never be late again! (Unless I was just having too much fun in Mexico).

What is your favourite place on earth: So far – Sihanoukville, Cambodia. But I have plenty more travelling to do!

What would be your last meal: #43: Somar Curry from the Tibetan Kitchen in the Valley – silken tofu, sour cream, coconut milk, capsicum, garlic, ginger, fresh coriander, lemon and chillies.

What do you want to be when you grow up: Well travelled.

If your mates could sum you up in three words – they would be: An indescribable enigma. That’s what I would like them to say. But I asked some friends and got stuff like smart, caring and easy-going. Sigh.

What is your most treasured possession: my iTunes library.

Blogs you follow: 2 birds, 1 blog has me in stitches, and I adore The Problem With Young People Today Is… and the “blog” of “unnecessary” quotation marks, and anything written by Jake Hurwitz.
