    usually by complete strangers. When I tell them I'm not they look at me in disbelief and dispute my ethnicity. I have had arguments and racial slurs yelled at me. I don't feel the need anymore to prove myself as I once did. What for? I don't care anymore. I do love living in...

    I do have a slightly Polynesian look

    which is due to my great-grandmother being from Tahiti. All the rest of my family is Australian. Strangely, on some days I look more Polynesian than other days :/ I can't explain that. My friends tell me it depends on lighting, or what the weather's like. Go figure. Anyway, I'm...

    Along with Australia being really hot,
