Suffering From Elation

A Survivor's Tale

8 April 1982
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That is my religion.
Abraham Lincoln

I'm Tania. I'm a very quirky, very loud, very short and very firey. In fact, the word 'very' paired with various descriptors probably sums me up best.

I love sexy boots and coats but mostly get around in jeans and sneakers. Public transport and I get along well providing there is an iPod there to mediate. My partner in life and crime is inc_b, a mad scientist who never updates his journal. My best friend hammond is a supernaturally cheerful gay man who wears odd socks. I used to be an animator for Disney in Sydney, then went on to create art for gaming machines (don't think I didn't feel guilty about it), and recently had a change of heart and am returning to university in 2011 to become a paramedic.

I live near Hobart in Tasmania, in the shadow of the beautiful Mount Wellington. It's just me, the boy and our two cats. I had three cats, but realised I was on the slippery slope to crazy cat lady-hood, so my lovely Sawyer went to live with Uncle Hammond.

I believe in growing old disgracefully. I like silly action photos of my friends and I jumping off things. I update this journal way, way too much, with the intent of printing it all out when I'm eighty (I may have to sacrifice a rainforest or two) and reliving my entire life, laughing at what a goose I've been.
