Anonymous: whats the purpose of life? (well atleast in your perspective?)

the purpose of life? you couldnt ask a more loaded and difficult question! i mean the obvious answer, being the meaning of life, is that of the number 42. but truly? i dont actually know what the purpose of life is. There are so many varied answers out there, ranging from those of a philosopher, a realist, an economist, a romantic, communist, and so many other ‘ist’ and ‘er’ words. But since you asked my perspective i’ll give my best shot at it. The purpose of life is to be happy and to make those around you happy. Positivity drives the world forward, and despite our destructive and consuming nature, we continue to still do positive things that move us forward. Every major invention from the wheel to electricity is a positive thing. Even nuclear fission is a positive thing despite it being used in destructive ways. Positive things create happiness, but when the happiness stops, thats when negativity burns through and sadness takes hold. So in my view, the purpose of life is to outweigh the bad with good. And an important example of this is in the movie Inception, the character Eames suggests that they negatively alter the subject, Robert Fischer’s view of his father. But Cobb states in disagreement that he believes positive emotion always trumps negative emotion. And i have always stuck by that, or more so i have tried. And thats what we all should aim to do, try and creative positive emotion to trump the negative.

So that was a long answer to that question, but i hope ive done it justice,

Anonymous: man, life is too short to shrug off what you truly want to do. If you have the opportunity to do it (photography) then you so should


If I could get into like model/fashion photography, then it’d be good, but I don’t see landscape shooting or whatever as being a successful path. I care too much about material things, so I need money.

i agree with you wholeheartedly on this topic, theres always two kind of opinions on this topic. 1. follow your dreams and the money will come 2. follow the money and you will make your dreams. My advice is to find a balance, take from your passions what can make you successful but never let the passion die. While money may rule the world and its inner workings, passion for life will always rule over money.

A journey for those in a hurry

Anonymous: What subject do you want to teach? English?, because you seem to be a really good creative writer.

english…. maybe i dunno, i dont think id like to teach english because id have to teach a boring school curriculum and itd be the same thing every year. But i would like to come back and teach at tafe and teach film to students, share my passion with them, that would be amazing.

7: what was your life like last year?

well last year i was in my hsc year and i think i may have been pushing to make the Seconds football for my school, which i ended up making and i was captain of the team for that year, which was one of my proudest achievements during my last year at high school. Tbh my life last year wasnt to different from what it is now. Except im at tafe atm doing something a little more interesting that highschool, but at least i was happy then and still happy now :)

1: selfie 

sorry i dont do selfies

3: do you miss anyone?

my girlfriend is in perth until next tuesday and i cant see her until wednesday and i miss her so fucking much. like its actually ridiculous how much i miss her, i feel almost mentally crippled without her being here. its weird how someone can affect you so dramatically.

10: are you good at hiding your feelings?

fuck no, people can read me like a book usually, im horrible at keeping things in.

25: role model?

oh jeeze thats a tough one because i dont think ive ever really had a role model. i usually just see a lot of peoples qualities and wish those upon me in the future. but if id have to look to anyone as a role model it would be my tafe teacher from meadowbank. Heres a man that devotes his time to teaching, who lives 2 hours away from the school, has a slightly broken family and yet treats every student with respect and such charisma its a wonder how he always smiles. id like to be that happy and selfless when i am older, and thus he is the reason i eventually want to be a teacher when im much older.

When the colour drains and the truth revealed, you will know what this city has hidden from  view. Its secret charms and places are ready to be seen, just take a look and you will find, a place not far from here. It’s a world of mystery, of wonder, of awe. It’s a place where not many have tried to go, but for all who do, are sure to return. It’s here in this city where magic occurs, for when all believe in the workings of might, all is well with things that go bump on the night.
