My name is Joel Kimber, I’m an incorrigible flirt, an iniquitous bastard and stylish sniper of love.
I’m a Wollongong resident and student at UOW studying a double Bachelor of Communications and Media Studies and International Studies.
I love to read and write, I try to do it everyday but have a disgusting tendency to be lazy
I love high fashion; there is nothing more powerful than wearing a well-cut, well-fitted outfit. The world needs to dress better.
I love to travel, the experience of *living* in a different culture is incredible and life-changing. I don’t understand why some people go overseas just to do the exact same things in the exact same way but in just a different place.
I like rap music, basketball and fried chicken; I’m also the whitest person you’ll ever meet
I think Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social networking sites are straight up damaging; it teaches us to care too much of others’ opinion and it also teaches us how to judge. There’s constant and unhealthy demand to be always funny, interesting and exciting. It’s draining, taxing and people spend an inordinate amount of time doing it.
I think a bachelor within the faculty of Arts is a terrible idea for the majority of people who undertake it, inclusive of me; I’ve yet to learn the lesson of turning back after going down the wrong path. I also think that the way we are taught is really backward – in both schools and universities.
I think that people need to have a *real* opinion on things; too many people don’t really mind or care about stuff, from the very trivial such as music and movies to politics, disasters and wars. I don’t know why, I suppose it’s safe, you’re not going to offend anyone but you’re also not going to be very interesting.
People care too much about what others think of them. I understand why, it can be dangerous to express how you truly feel; especially with the fear that people willl mercilessly shame and oppose you; but I’m not going to let it stop me from saying what I want. In the worst case it lets me know very quickly who I want to and don’t want to talk to.
I want to be around like-minded boys who encourage me to take stupid risks and live outside of my comfort zone. I want to be around impressionable, feminine girls who find what I have to say interesting and are willing to make questionable decisions. The biggest and most embarrassing secret in the world is that you are exactly where you want to be doing exactly what you want to do. If it isn’t, then why are you doing it?
