My favourite things

DESK

I made this desk back in year 12; it was my fi­nal VCE project. It’s prob­a­bly the best thing I’ve ever done. I love work­ing at it be­cause I cre­ated it for my­self. I thought of all the things I like do­ing at my desk and all the stor­age com­part­ments I might need. I love work­ing at it be­cause I spent so many hours cre­at­ing it, but I was proud of what I cre­ated.

MODEL CHAIR

I re­ally like mak­ing things with my hands. I re­ally like recre­at­ing things and I’ll recre­ate them on a much larger or smaller scale. I re­ally like this lit­tle Ernest Race chair be­cause it just re­minds me of my model mak­ing. It re­minds me of one of the things I love do­ing and it re­minds me of my fur­ni­ture de­sign as­so­ciate de­gree.

CD

I loved watch­ing Dirty Danc­ing grow­ing up. I can’t even re­mem­ber how old I was when I first watched it but I just love it. I watch it now and I love it even more. The sound­track is just the best; I love blast­ing that. I just love the story of Baby and her vic­tory at the end.

CAMERA

I’ve had the camera since I was 18 and I’ve gone through lots of phases with it, from tak­ing photos at par­ties to trav­el­ling with it and tak­ing shots around the world, and even at my other job tak­ing photos of fur­ni­ture. I re­ally like the fact it re­minds me of all the mo­ments I’ve been able to cap­ture with it.

PHOTO

This is a pic­ture of my grand­par­ents’ farm; they live just across the pad­dock from where I grew up. Pretty much ev­ery night af­ter school, we would go over and feed the chooks and help out around the farm. I re­ally like the pic­ture be­cause it re­minds me of the farm and as I don’t get to go back that of­ten now, it’s nice hav­ing it in my room.

CAP

I started work­ing at Carl­ton al­most three months ago and at the start of Au­gust it was my birth­day and some of the play­ers had signed this cap for me. I like it be­cause it was such a nice thing for them to do and sym­bol­ises how I felt com­ing into the club. I’ve al­ways felt re­ally wel­comed and they do lots of lit­tle things to make you feel spe­cial. When I look at the cap, I think of how great the club has been and it makes me look for­ward to next year and what’s to come, be­ing part of the women’s team.
