A Day in My Life
My alarm clock starts beeping at 7:15 exactly and I groan and try to imagine that it isn't there. When the noise doesn't stop I roll over and hurl the unlucky object across the room. It invariably hits a precariously balanced pile of books or CD's and they invariably come crashing down, adding to the scene of devastation that is my bedroom floor. I then slowly drift off to sleep again; until, twenty minuets later, I am rudely awakened by my mum's voice shouting: "Danny you'll be late for school!".
I turn over looking for my alarm clock and, realising that it's no longer a foot away from my right ear but at the other side of the room, I slowly climb out of my bed and get…show more content…
After we have walked the length of the school twice we sit down to 15 minutes of tutor time.
While I franticly finish the History homework due in five minutes time everyone else enjoys some time taunting Michael or Ashley about one thing or another.
As Ben leaves the tutor room I shout after him "Ben! What we got now?"
The reply comes: "Science. Mr Smith."
"OK" I shout as I hurry after him.
First lesson, despite being science, goes past in a dream.
I have decided that however much I may look awake at nine o'clock in the morning I actually do not wake up until ten. Therefore, during first period (science or not) I am still fast asleep. This means that, except under special circumstances (i.e. a test), the amount of work completed in this lesson is fairly small.
Second period, I am usually more awake (unless, of course, it is R.E, in which case I remain a deep sleep throughout, even if it's last lesson.).
I.T with Mr. Wisson is almost never enjoyable.
Despite my love of computers I cannot ever manage to squeeze even the slightest bit of satisfaction from an hours typing numbers, letters and mathematical equations into Excel or some such program. The teacher seems to think that because we are not doing IT long course we are all computer illiterate fools who find it hard to use Microsoft Word.
11 November 2015 was the greatest day of my life.
I married the love of my life, my soul mate, my best friend and the man I will spend the rest of my life with – Liam Davis.
Liam and I would often giggle with each other at married couples and we found it a past time to make fun of those annoying couples who just couldn’t wait to tell you they were hitched.
Personal, political, persistent: how the campaign for marriage equality learned the hard way
That was until recently when we tied the knot in Carmel, California, on the beach with just our English bulldog Poppy as our witness.
Something surreal happened. While standing on the beach and looking into my husband’s eyes, I realised just how incredible it all was. We stood in front of each other and committed ourselves to one another for the rest of our lives. We told each other how much we loved each other and how much we meant to each other.
We cried and laughed and hugged and kissed. We made it official. We got married.
Not a civil ceremony. Not a commitment ceremony. A marriage. We got married.
After the ceremony we walked down the beach with our wedding photographer, Catie Watkins, and were greeted by local Carmelians who wished us well and said our ceremony was beautiful.
This was the greatest day of our lives, but one we had to have thousands of miles from our home city, Sydney.
And why? Because the government of Australia is ignoring basic human rights. The majority of Australians find it baffling why our politicians blatantly refuse to realise that marriage equality is consistent with Australia’s slogan of “a fair go”.
It’s heartbreaking to me that the all-too-familiar “We are one, but we are many” song is thrown into the cosmos at every event that calls for patriotism, yet that song to me is a blatant lie. The current government doesn’t see us all “as one”. Quite the opposite.
A plebiscite has been in talks for a while now which is set to waste millions of taxpayer dollars on an answer that has already been discovered.
Troye Sivan: I came into the music industry as an out person
Seventy-two per cent of Australians want marriage equality. Every scientific poll conducted in the last nine years has shown majority support for equality.
Yet why is the government not listening?
My wedding day was the happiest day of my life.
I married the love of my life, my soulmate, my best friend and the man I will spend the rest of my life with. It’s high time to government recognises the value of this as much as I do.
