Blog award

This week I received my first blog award from the lovely Ana over at My (Newly)Wed Life - so stoked! 
So I think how these things work, is that I'm supposed to list seven things about myself? Here goes:

1. There's nothing I am more proud of than being an Australian. I am a very patriotic person and I love everything about my county. In how many countries can you find rain forests, cities, bush land, country sides, snow, beaches, deserts and beautiful reefs? On January 26th (Australia Day) every year I am out in full force with my Aussie pride wearing my green and gold!

2. I have webbed toes. Weird right? Wrong! They're totally awesome and I love them. And before you start freaking out and decide never to talk to me again, they don't look like ducks feet, my second and third toes are just joined. I like to think they help me swim faster, make me unique and are a great ice-breaker (?)

3. I live for dancing. I think it is the most beautiful thing in the world. The way the human body moves, the stories a dance can tell and how it makes you feel. I started dancing around the age of 3 and haven't looked back since. Unfortunately I have stopped this year because of my trip to India but am really looking forward to starting again next year. 

4. As much as I am excited to go to India, I am also slightly scared and overwhelmed. I've only ever travelled overseas to New Zealand (which isn't overly different from Australia anyway) and Fiji. I am leaving my family for 4 months (I've never been away from them for longer than a week), landing in a third world country where I don't speak the language and being thrown straight into a classroom to teach! I'm just lucky I have five lovely girls going through it all with me :)

5. I hate coffee. I tried a cappuccino once and nearly died. So I then tried a mocha...with extra chocolate...and two sugars...and I still hated it :( So I've come to the conclusion that I'm simply not a coffee person (but it's ok because what I lack in coffee drinking I make up in Chai!)

6. I am a complete pig (no I don't oink and roll in the mud). But my living habits are a little disgusting. My room constantly looks like a bomb has hit it and therefor I am always looking for things. And I certainly do not shower enough (but it's kind of ok because I hardly sweat). People say a shower wakes them up in the morning, but it makes me all warm and sleepy and I feel yucky after. My skin dries out and my hair goes frizzy. Not cool

7. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be so I could sing (and not just belting out of key songs in my car). I imagine there is nothing nicer than being able to sing. I've always wanted to audition for musicals. I thrive on acting and dancing but unfortunately I just don't have the voice :(

I think it's totally normal to be apprehensive about leaving for 4 months! But I think you're really going to enjoy it! I hope you'll be able to post from India because I'd love to see the pictures!!
