C'mon Jimmy its not that bad. I''m in NSW too, don't have a job, don't live in Sydney and am in year 11. :P

I might have to come on my own, bringing the other 2 might require some serious busking/working/begging by the looks of things...

A month to go now. I've got my flights, accomodation and ticket set. Free ticket as I'm in the public show :D
Leo might be turning up too due to a convenient family holiday! Which is a plus.

SO GOOD IT NEEDS CAPITALS.
What made me happy:

Meeting everyone
Watching Jake eat cornflakes and Cola out of my superspin
Scooby - He is amazing and all his tricks are so sensual. The "Y**r m*m" (Can't be typed due to how amazing it is) would be trick of the decade.
Ben - Jesus Christ! (Not talking about Scooby) He learns so much, so fast!
Meeting, Lachlan (Bizzat) and G-man and then renamed G-spot.
Watching the lamest funny game on earth.. Mafia.
Getting Xtremes discounted from $35 to $15 from the awesome people at juggleart.
Meeting Aaron, realising how quiet he is and giggling at his ultramega drinking straw.
Having the best room in the backpackers and yelling at people who passing in the street.
Not being dead after approx 3.5L of energy drinks on Saturday
People thinking I didn't suck at the renegade when I did.
Getting three high solid
Almost pulling 4440 at the renegade
Passing 5d with Scooby
Getting a standing ovation in the public show. And getting so many congrats/compliments after
Seeing Jake with wet hair.
Speaking "lulspeak" in real life
Making people in the backpackers watch "TWO GIRLS, ONE CUP" and filming their reactions. Including a 13 year old girls.
Lighting my superspin on fire for a few seconds
REALLY BIG BURGERS.
Doughnuts, really, really good doughtnuts

And so, so, so much more.

Lowlights:
Missing out on seeing a chair being lifted nipples.
A blister/rip the size of a 5c piece right where my stick should be.
It not being longer.


All in all, OH GOD.
AMAZING.
