It's Madeline, It's Madeline (Madeleine Lily)
Hello friends! I hope you all got the reference to the cartoon show, circa 1990. If not, here is a picture of her looking adorable as always, and my condolences for your depleted childhood!
So “Madeline” and I share the same name, if you didn’t already figure, but that’s about the extent of our similarities. Unfortunately, I am not a cute little French girl, walking around Paris with a tribe of cute little French friends and a cute little French puppy. Damn do I envy her! However, I have been to Paris and, well j’adore!
Before I get too nostalgic, let me introduce myself… I am somewhat of a world traveler Although I have lived near Melbourne for most of my life, I was born in Indonesia, lived in Singapore and sporadically travelled Dubai, Vietnam, Thailand, Switzerland and Europe. I am incredibly open to new experiences and love talking with and meeting new people. I believe that there is no better way to explore your city (or campus) by foot. I tell you what, we are now months in to the year and I still get hopelessly lost at Uni, this place is like it’s own village! Despite my “wanderlust”, I am a homebody at heart. The familiar feel of my own bed, warm slippers and a home cooked meal cannot be paralleled!
I have chosen an Arts and Psychology course here at MU. It combines my passion for understanding humans and the workings of the mind. I aspire to one day use this knowledge to help individuals live happier and more fulfilled lives. Other than psychology, I’m also doing some English courses; literature and media. Writing, reading and expressing… If assignments and exams didn’t exist, I would be in heaven!
Hmmm, what else… I’m a bit of a health freak; I love to get the endorphins flowing with a brisk run, yoga or fitness class. I’m an avid animal lover, horse-rider and golden-retriever owner. It would only seem fitting that I have been vegetarian for 8 years. My hobbies are pretty diverse; you might find me gardening, painting or lurking around a farmers market. But at the same time I am partial to a good shopping spree, and a self confessed fashion junkie/binge watcher of trashy television. Somewhere between that I fit in time to study.
I’m looking forward to my first year at Melbourne University, and sharing my perspectives and experiences with you all!
‘Til next time! Have a great week all of you, I’m off to Rowden Library to (not) study 😉
