Happy 1st Birthday to Us - Meet the team

Here are Twenty Something Humans, we’re celebrating our first birthday! We’re getting to that stage where we are starting to walk, trying to talk but definitely still shitting in our pants. Since launching in March 2016 we’ve reached tens of thousands of your eyeballs and for a very small bunch of twenty-somethings who are either drunk, asleep or hung-over for 80% of their existence, we’re pretty fucking proud of our efforts. We’re still babies, but we’re growing and as we enter our terrible twos we’re excited to bring you more content, more humans and definitely more pant shitting fun.

 

 

You've been hearing from us for a year now. You know about our thoughts on nude selifes, sexual fetishes, pubic hair and fuck humans that don't text you back; but do you really know anything about us? We're of the opinion that you don't really know someone until you know how many times they poo on a daily basis.

Meet the team

 

 

When do you feel the most creative?

I feel creative on a rainy day. Storms just seem to wash away a lot of bullshit, leaving you with a clear mental slate. I also feel super creative when I'm walking around the city at night, buzzed on a few glasses of red and listening to Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

 

What’s the most satisfying feeling?

Kissing someone that you like for the very first time and putting on soft pants after a long day.

 

Describe your ideal sexual situation.

A bowl of mashed potato, Chet Faker, body lotion and an open mind. ;)

How many times do you poo a day?

I’m very regular. Minimum one poo a day, sometimes I’ll slam out four if I’m on a high-fibre diet.

 

Who do you admire most in the world?

Meryl Streep - that bish is on fire 24/7

 

What would your last meal EVER be?

It would be the most lit AF burger stuffed full of onion rings and BBQ sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When do you feel most creative?

Listening to Portishead with a good cuppa after a solid bat on a rainy day off.

 

Favourite sex position?

As the great Eminem said: "I told him how you like it from behind' - Shake that ass (TUUUUNE).

 

Favourite artist/writer?

Laura Callaghan and Caitlin Moran.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 What do you like the most about being in your 20s?

I like that I can use the excuse: "oh well, I'm in my 20's!" to convince myself that I can literally do anything. 

 

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

I like taking photos of myself crying for some reason and then deleting them when I feel happy again. Also making a bunch of online shopping baskets and letting people know that I'm sad .

 

Describe your aesthetic in three words…

Floral and drunk.

 

What’s your best lie for getting out of doing something lame?

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

 

Put on Only Time by Enya. Turn on the shower. Get in fully clothed. Slide slowly down the wall while blankly staring ahead. If it doesn't look like a scene from an independent coming of age film, I have failed. 

 

When you were a kid, what did you think being in your 20s would be like?

 

The first 15 minutes of Raising Helen. I thought I’d be Kate Hudson running around in a little dress and having sex with models. Turns out, I’m more the Joan Cusack type that beats doors down to stop people I love from making mistakes. I also enjoy saying:“You’re not a bad person, but this is very bad behaviour.”

 

What do you want to be when you 'grow up'?

I want to make others laugh and think. I want to tell stories about complicated, flawed and realistic people. I’d like to write characters that kids like me won’t have to mentally change or make weirder just to relate to. Ideally this will be done on a pink velvet lounge, in a tiny house I was able to afford on my own (without sacrificing brunch).

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

That's a hard one. I mostly just try and be inspired by the work around me. I have been a creative person my whole life so there's a bit of an expectation and a benchmark for myself as well. 

 

Who do you admire most in the world?

Lame, but my mum. The amount of love she produces for other human beings is pretty amazing. 

 

Where is the most outrageous place that you’ve had sex?

On a golf course.

 

How many times do you poo a day?

Multiple. Fibre people. It's important.

If your life had a sound-track what would it be?

Fat Bottomed Girls - Queen.

 

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

Listening to Lana Del Ray and a bottle of a really good, expensive red.

 

When you were a kid, what did you think being in your 20s would be like?

I assumed less disappointment and expected greater achievements. 

 

What’s something that most people don’t know about you?

I use crystals to heal, and attract affirmations that I put out into the world.

Every year closer to 30, you give less fucks.

Involves a trip to Bunnings for supplies.

I worked as a Children's Entertainer named Sparkles.

The AGB. The After Grog Bog.

Finally shaking the water out of your ear after a dip at the beach #satisfying.

Sitting at a cafe with a constant supply of coffee and banana bread, listening to a new Spotify playlist, editing a video, writing a post, writing in my journal and people watching. Hello Carrie Bradshaw moment.

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

My creativity has always come in unexpected, explosive bursts, a little like violent diarrhoea but obviously, better than that. I can’t ever write or draw on command. I figured out pretty quickly that a good coffee or wine, music and some space in an environment that’s not my own, will spur my creativity -  anywhere except my own house - like a cafe, bar or restaurant; anywhere where I can stare at random strangers for inspiration is my happy, albeit slightly creepy, place.

 

What would your last meal EVER be?

A Vegemite and cheese toasted sandwich, a bowl of mum’s BEST, CHEESIEST cauliflower cheese, a bottle of red wine and an ice cold beer (or ten). Fuck calories. I’m dying right.

 

What’s something that most people don’t know about you?

That I don’t wash my hair/shave my legs that often.

 

What’s your best lie for getting out of doing something lame?

If I don’t like the person, “I have to wash my hair/shave my legs/or something equally as lame as the invite.” If I do like them, “explosive diarrhoea.” No one questions that shit.

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

Sad cave is life. We're talking fairy lights, candles, a bubble bath, some take away Thai food and obviously Grey's Anatomy- I'm not fussy on what episode, they all make me cry.

 

When you were a kid, what did you think being in your 20s would be like?

For some reason, when I was little, I really relished in the thought of being able to take myself to Westfield and eat doughnuts. Tbh, I take myself to Westfield and eat doughnuts, but it's not as fun as I thought it would be.

 

If your life had a sound-track what would it be?

It does have a soundtrack- the playlist I made called 'Fierce Females' which is full of power jams about female empowerment. Basically the dun dun dun dun dun of Crazy in Love.

 

Who do you admire most in the world?

I'm very much into people who are entirely themselves, regardless of society pressures. Iskra Lawrence, Caitlin Stasey, Tilly Lawless, Tupac Shakur and Chance the Rapper.

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

Read, read, and then read some more. Observe a lot, and take notes on everything.

 

What’s your best lie for getting out of doing something lame?

I used to be really creative in my lies to get out of things. Then I realised there’s nothing wrong with not wanting to do something that doesn’t interest you – so now I tell people exactly that.

 

When you were a kid, what did you think being in your 20s would be like?

I expected my 20s to involve a high-paying journalism gig on Television, a husband and two kids and a giant house. Flash forward and it turns out I’m not keen on working for Television, I’m 110% gay, still would like kids but like, I’m 23 – calm down. Oh, and I don’t like big houses.

Describe your ideal sexual situation.

Oral before and after. By oral I mean snacks, but hey good ole’ oral is never a bad thing.

 

Who is your favourite writer?

Mr Daniel Hayek. Not only is he an incredible writer, but he is someone who aspires to help others creatively. He is a bundle of creativity, always looking for ways to help others grow their little seedling ideas into big, edible plants. I think it’s rare to find someone who so lovingly shares, and radiates their creativity in such a positive way so I am very grateful for his influence. 

 

How many times do you poo a day?

Okay if i’m being totally honest I poo 3-4 times a day. It’s inconvenient and annoying but I’m a plant-based gal. My diet is basically falafels, hummus, cauliflower, avocado and vegan doughnuts. That shit just dances through your small intestines. 

 

What’s something people don’t know about you?

I have a pet pygmy bearded dragon named Poncho! He’s a cute lil man who loves raspberries, sweet potato and is absolutely fascinated by musicals.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would like to be a triple threat. So a singer, clarinet player and a dog enthusiast. Just kidding...I legitimately would love to promote a boyband and be a dancing/singing machine and have cameo appearances on Neighbours and Home and Away, you know you've made it when you're on Summer Bay. 

 

What’s your best lie for getting out of doing something lame?
It could be in the middle of summer holidays and i'd just be like 'Hey, i'm actually SUPER SWAMPED with uni shit right now.' I'm a terrible person. 

 

 

What would your last meal EVER be?
Chicken penne pasta. Obsessed with that stuff. 
 

Describe your aesthetic in three words…
Thick. Brown. Gaysian.

What do you like the most about being in your 20s?

I love that I'm young enough to take my time to find what I love. I'm a firm believer in having multiple passions in life and I just want to try everything so I can fall in love with as many experiences as possible. I mean hey, what is life if it isn't lived fully?

 

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

Doing the things I love and enjoy most (no matter how small) tends to get all my creative juices flowing. It could be something as small as diving into a new cafe for brunch (because all-day breakfast is life) or hiding away at the beach for a day.

 

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

Drake, Drake...and more Drake. The boy speaks to your heart and takes the words straight out of your mouth. All the love for Drizzy.

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

Spiced Rum and Garlic Bread

 

Where is the most outrageous place that you’ve had sex?

At my ex-girlfriends house. It doesn't sound super outrageous but seeing as she wasn't there at the time it felt pretty daring.

 

Describe your ideal sexual situation.

Whoever is reading this, you're the one. Let's get crazy. My number is on most reputable bathroom walls, and a number of disreputable ones.

 

Describe the best way to indulge in your own sadness.

REM's 'Everybody Hurts' played on repeat while I Google climate change

 

What would your last meal EVER be?

My Mum's spag bol laced with acid to lessen the crippling anxiety over my impending death.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

The female Harvey Spector. I decided to study law this year, I already have FAR  too many people in my circle who think they will need my services.

 

When you were younger what did you think your 20s would be like?

I thought I would have been married, own a lovely house and have two kids. Right now I have moved to the other side of the world, I rent a kooky apartment and live with my fave human. I could not be happier.

 

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

I have never classed myself as creative, I just stumbled into writing and turns out I absolutely love it. I fuel myself by talking to people, listening to their stories about love, work and things that piss them off. Writing makes me happy. I am most content with a coffee in my new IKEA mug and a notepad next to me .

What’s the most satisfying feeling?

Other than taking my bra off after a long day of hauling them around it would have to be popping someone else’s blackheads. Never my own because that is just plain gross.

          

When do you feel the most creative?

Usually after watching/reading/listening to someone else’s brilliance.

 

When you were a kid, what did you think being in your 20s would be like?

I assumed I would have my shit together and actually be able to own pets in a rental property.

How do you fuel yourself creatively?

Coffee. And so so much of it! And then when there's no more coffee, we go for whiskey of course. But other than that, really just taking time to be and think and remember how much fun it is putting pen to paper and making things up. Oh and lots and lots of music.

 

If your life had a sound-track what would it be?

Anything by Sleater-Kinney first of all. But I love really powerful lyrics, the smith street band for one, camp cope, Amy shark, but most recently Wild Fire by Laura Marling is an incredibly beautiful song and is inspiring a lot of my writing at the moment.

 

When do you feel the most creative?

Usually at 3am when it feels like an idea is just busting to get out. But also early mornings. Even though I'm not a morning person when I actually do get up it seems to work wonders!
