I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 399 People

    When I was a young man growing up in Sicily: 1.

    I had many loyal friends who would risk their lives for me. 2. Young women complimented me at university and at work ... they liked my haircut, and my choice of clothing ... also, I complimented them about their general attire. 3. People greeted each other with authenticity and...

    I moved here over 6 years ago and am having one hell of a time making friends, finding work, fitting in, not being bored out of my damn mind............. It wasn't my choice to move here so it's no surprise I'm not happy. I just wish I had friends, that I could confide in, that...

    Glad To Have Left Australia!!!!

    After living in the '*** end of the earth' for three years, I am very happy to have left that country. I grew up there and even I can see how downhill both Sydney and Australia have gone since the 1980's. I can sum it by these observations: The cities are too damn expensive to...

    Generosity of Spirit is an alien emotion in

    Australia. British Australians are materialistic and alcoholic. It's like this: 1. Never display warm emotion towards people. 2. Be cold and distant as much as possible. 3. Keep to yoursel and stay quiet, and don't care about anyone else or anything else except how many...

    Aussie Psychology.

    In an attempt not to generalise all Australians, I'm going to use the term 'aussie' only for those who identify with being 'true blue', are proudly ignorant and full of social weirdness. There are even foreigners who suck up the redneck culture so easily I'd call them aussie as...
