i used to play tennis a fair bit more than i do now. i think i peaked when i was 16 and have plateaued since... my serve is shit house and i can't volley or slice or hit very hard so i've got quite a limited game! i've played tennis for ages but i was only a casual fan until about 2009 when i discovered there were more tournaments beyond the slams and the Australian summer. nerdiest tennis thing i've ever done... i guess how i always used to have the live scores app on at school and just stare at it rather than doing any work. and one time last year i stayed back all lunch so i could watch a match on my laptop from the US Open..... qualifying
Followed back!

I'm used to it now

You should totally travel! It's the best thing about gap years. Man I love Tasmania, I'd go back there any day and happily live there.

thanks for the follow! i hardly ever tweet though. Storm tweeted me once, but she pretty much tweets everyone who tweets her

so i'm guessing you had a gap year and did some travelling? i went to Fiji in April with some friends, but i'd love to go to Europe somewhere. oh and i'm going to Gold Coast in two weeks if that counts as travel

What? You wanna be a pilot but never played those games

Just try Flight Simulator. You'll learn all the basics in flying and cockpit controls, without actually having to do anything official

I did! I spent about 6 months in Canada/US, it was the best experience of my life so I'm always encouraging other people to do the same! Ah, I went to Fiji last year with friends, how did you enjoy it? Sure it counts!

that would've been sick! did you work or anything while you were over there? yeah Fiji was pretty cool, just really chilled. we stayed near Sigatoka on the coral coast. the only bad thing was drinking kava, it tasted like dirt and made us feel drunk please tell me you tried it?? oh yeah and people that invite you into their shop and then force you to buy everything in it, that got annoying. what did you think of Fiji?

I didn't work over there, I just worked my arse off before I went so I didn't have to.

I liked kava!! It didn't taste great but the sensation was so cool It's like numbing and makes you so relaxed. I've been trying to find some in Australia. I tried it a couple of times, at a village and in town.

Yeah it's just a really laid back place, I didn't really have that problem. I was around Nadi. I worst thing was our drivers nearly hitting all the people walking on the road in the dark. Everything else was good if you just want to sit back and relax.
