coldlight 's Thoughts:

Hey everyone :D hope you’re doing well! and again I realise I haven’t posted in ages :P

First up i’m not really happy with the way these pics turned out, my bf took some and he didn’t realise the camera was on the manual setting so the pics were really dark and i couldn’t edit them to look good :P and then the photos we took on the auto setting were really light and the colours didn’t look very nice.. boo!

Today… I sat for the Australian Citizenship Test!! Before you can apply to become an Australian citizen, you have to complete this test about Australian culture, history, government, values etc… There’s a booklet you have to read and learn. I think some parts of what you have to learn are stupid, eg the bits about sport, I mean sport is a very large part of Aus culture but I dunno why you need to know about it if you’re a citizen, lots of Aussies don’t care about sport!
I think learning about values and rights you have as a citizen (eg how voting is compulsory, about freedom of speech and religion and secular government, and equal rights for men and women etc) are more important than “what was one of the main exports of Australia in the 1880s?” (wool :P) or “what sport is ‘The Ashes’related to?” (cricket) “what is the floral emblem of australia?” (wattle) and who Phar Lap was (horse that won the melbourne cup in 1930)
Anyway I didn’t have any trouble with the test, I got only 1 question wrong :P It was annoying having to do the test in the first place seeing as i’ve been living permanently in Australia since before i turned 1, and i’m a New Zealand citizen anyway which means you get practically all the same benefits/rights as an Australian. :P

ok i’ll stop ranting… I know the pics here look really grey but in fact I didn’t dress very appropriately for today because it was pretty nice and sunny! I just put in my frog umbrella in these pics cos I think it’s cute :P

I’ve got more pics lined up so you’ll see those put up here in the next week :) <3

This outfit is adorable! I looked at your other photos and am AMAZED at your skillz in a. dressing yourself and b. being so frugal! Seriously, I am a fan. Sooo cute!! Also, if Canada tested me on hockey knowledge, I would be kicked out of the country. That's silly that Australia tests you on sports.
