Name: Phoebe
Age: 16
Country: Australia

Hey, I’m Phoebe and I’m from Australia.

I love doing M.M.A (Mixed Marshal Arts), Listening to music, Scouts (It’s for girls too in Aus!), camping, watching musicals, performing, reading books and watching TV shows. (Teen Wolf, Arrow, The flash, Riverdale, Shadowhunters, Doctor Who, Sherlock)

I never really realised how hard it is to describe myself…

These are some of the things I enjoy, I’d love to travel when I’m older and I’ve always wanted to have a pen pal. I speak fluent English and am high school. I don’t really know what else to say!
It costs a bit too much for snail mail, but I could send a couple, if you really wanted.

Preferences: Well, I’d like if you were around my age 15-18. I am LGBTQ+ friendly and would love it if I could talk to someone outside Australia please!

Gillian:  I didn’t really base her on anybody.  Um…but she’s British so, uh, she has a British accent.

Interviewer:  Now we see, we’ve actually seen you on the red carpet in the UK and you actually had the British accent.  Are you like a chameleon, whenever you go around to different countries you just take on the….?  

Gillian:  No, I would but then I’d be talking in an Australian accent right now.  You know people are obsessed with this.  This is a really fascinating thing I’m finding cause people are completely obsessed with uh, what accent I have at any particular time.  And there is a reallyclear answer for it which is that I grew up in England and that was my first language, so to speak, and I live there now, and um….when I’m in the UK it’s really hard for me not to fall into the rhythm of that accent.

Hello :) I’m a slightly impulsive, neurotic woman looking a friend. I practically have every social media platform but I’m also open to the good old-fashioned letter. I am a current university student, majoring in theatre studies and film and screen production. I am obsessed with the TV show Sherlock, as well as Hannibal, American Horror Story, Outlander, Penny Dreadful and about 20 other TV shows. I’m just looking for a friend, I’m a very bubbly person but I do have a hard time making friends inter-personally just because I’m very loud and outspoken. I don’t really have much else to say, I hope I’m interesting enough. Thank you :)

Study Abroad Timeline

(Pre-Departure)

Hi ❤

A few of you have been asking about how difficult it is to study abroad, or about my experience so far. And while I am by no means a pro, I am an overachiever, so I might be able to help shine some light for those that are curious ;)

Some background info: Currently I attend the University of Central Florida. I’m going for a double major in Legal Studies and English Literature. In the Fall semester of 2017, I’ll be studying abroad at the University of Canberra in Australia. (I’m very excited ^.^)

Now, I haven’t left yet, and I’m not even done applying for my visa, so this is more of an informational on how I got started.

  1. Meet with an adviser:
    Before I did anything, I met with a study abroad adviser at my school who gave my information on programs that are available to me, both through the school or externally through a third-party program. 

  2. Choose your program:
    This is the step where you narrow your options – where do you want to go and what do you want to study? Financial limitations come into play during this stage. What programs can you afford? In my experience, I found that by choosing an internal program I received more aid through the school and was therefore funded fully for my trip.

  3. Begin the step-by-step process:
    1. Apply for the program through the school or the third-party organizer
    2. Apply for the university you’ll be staying at and possibly begin to enroll in your classes
    3. Apply for your passport (tbh it’s smarter to do this ASAP, but I didn’t get to it until this point in the game)
    4. Apply for your Visa (I’m applying for a student visa that’ll last just a few months covering the duration of my stay in Australia)
    5. Book your flight!

My situation is a little bit unique. While it’s heavily recommended that you begin to prepare about 6 - 8 months before your trip, I started my applications like 4 months ahead. While this was unavoidable due to some personal complications, it’s never too early to get started on a study abroad journey.

Where I am now:
Yesterday I paid the deposit on my housing, and I’ve already been accepted to the University. My passport should be arriving back in the mail sometime this week, and I’ll be sending in the application for my visa not long after that. I leave in two months… so I am sweating the prices for airfare from Florida to Australia just a little bit but I am confident that things will work out in the end. Honestly I’m so excited because I’ve never traveled very far before in my entire life and I really appreciate all the well-wishes that you guys have been sending my way.

Till next time, xx

Name: Harvey
Age: 17
Country: Australia

I’m a student in my final year of high school. I want to make friends and learn about other places. I don’t really understand the internet or, y'know, anything much, but I want to become a scientist and a fiction novelist (What, both at the same time? Yep.) I try to be logical about things but fail most of the time, because being logical is too much effort and I’m lazy. Really lazy. I am on tumblr instead of studying. Go me.

I spend a lot of my time supporting people through the internet, because I’m a worrier and because I like people. Also because I try my darndest not to act like a dick and get sucked into things. I think people interesting, as long as I don’t have to interact with them face-to-face. I don’t tend to talk much about myself but I’m trying to get better at it, hence, the penship thing. I want to know all you’re comfortable with telling me, as long as you can act like a decent human being, as I’m sure you can. I just need somebody to vent to sometimes. I find it hard to open up, especially because most of the time it’s just complaining.

I watch a little bit of this, read a little bit of that- Steven Universe, Harry Potter, Skulduggery Pleasant, Darker than Black, etc. Feel free to introduce me to anything, maybe we could watch it together on Rabb.it? That would be fun.

I speak english although I did study german a bit when I was younger and could probably struggle through it with help of a german-english dictionary. I would look forward to learning more, or any other language, although that’s not a requirement. I don’t really care? Just thought it could be fun.

No snail mail, unfortunately, But I’m open to email, tumblr messaging, discord- something online.

Preferences: Any person aspiring to be a decent human being.

Bonjour 💛
I’m Madeleine, 16 from Australia.
I love people and music and art and I want to share this with anyone willing. I play too many instruments and very passionate about music. I’m a self proclaimed artist and spend as much time as I can at the gallery, I love tea and wildflowers. I want to be an artist and if that doesn’t happen a writer or novelist but one can dream can’t they?
I think it’s such a lovely thing to have friends and pen pals all over the world and share things with each other to understand the world a little better.
I’m looking for a pen pal that will happily send letter and parcels back and forth. I’m up to talk about anything from how your weeks was like to world issues.
My tumblr is “shien-sage” feel free to message me x

Hi, I’m a sixteen-year-old girl from Australia. I don’t really have many friends in real life, so I’ve been trying to find somewhere online to find some friends. Tumblr seems good as place as any. I love writing and reading and would like to beta read for someone if you have any writing. I love Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Shadowhunters (*cough* books were better *cough*) Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, anything that’s fantasy. I like mythology and anthropology and would be down for having political conversations as well as light-hearted meme trading. Also hella gay, so have to be okay with that. Anyway, hopefully, talk to someone soon :)

Preferences: Anyone from 13-19 really

George Hyde Pownall (1866 or 1876-1932, England/Australia)

Cityscapes

Pownall was an English painter of the Edwardian period, His small, vivid paintings of London, the West End, and the Thames are often overlooked when people consider city painting in the early 20th century, and this has not been helped by inaccurate or lacking biographical information relating to the artist’s life.

An accomplished musician and landscape painter, Pownall was born in England in 1866 (or 1876) and emigrated to Melbourne, Australia in about 1911. He worked as a conductor, composer, tenor singer and pianist, painting in his spare time. His paintings are in the plein air style of Impressionism, and the sketch-like fluidity also resembles artists of this school, though Pownall’s technique is recognisably his own.
