guys I just had the most australian moment and I left my phone in my room I’m so annoyed. A couple of us went to the lake to share a joint - 4 of us english, one indian girl and a australian guy. more people come and australian guy magics this guitar out of nowhere and starts singing this song he wrote about how trying to catch fish is like trying to get girls because he can’t get any- in this really thick accent. It was kind of like what you’d imagine a stereotypical hilbilly type sounds like, but australian. so so funny but so good. He was such a nice guy, one of those guys that is just completely themselves. and not in a abrasive way, just in a quiet ‘this is who i am and i wrote this song because i thought it was funny’ way. And like, not conscious of it. he just lives it. there’s no ‘oh what will people think, i want to make this express something’ it’s just ‘i thought it was funny because fish, girls and puns’. english guys though are too conscious though. the english guys, lol. i love english white boys so much, just in the sense that I just find them so endearing and the kind of relationships they have with each other is just so cute. I guess maybe because in the black community you don’t really get ‘bromances’ do you know what I mean? Those kind of close male friendships aren’t acknowledged. Like you get, ‘he’s my boy’ but it’s not like, ”is me best mate’. you don’t get scrubs lol. and there’s a underlying sense of vulnerability you get, ldk it’s just a more expressive relationship and there are a lot of archetypes but there is only really one archetype for black dudes that is encouraged and therefore displayed freely. ah there was a lot of english banter too. Maybe it’s just because I’m away I can notice it more but australians don’t banter in the same way. lol there was like a proper inbetweeners moment too - like the ‘football friend’ thing but with pool. i was just watching the group at one point too and i just love social groups and that there’s always an entertainer, the one who steps up to be laughed and the common joke for people to bond over. to bridge the awkward silences. and like people take on their roles in social groups so quickly! it’s amazing.
