Hi :) I'm Rosie.

I just graduated from Honours in psychology at university and am working part time as a mental health support worker. I'm a mental health advocate, and want to dedicate my life to helping to support and understand others living with mental illness. I live with Schizoaffective Disorder (Type I Bipolar and schizophrenia) in Australia. I love writing and reading poetry, and reading biographies and memoirs. I also love writing music and performing, photography and photo manipulation.

I'm the lyricist/singer for a band. We're called Outward Eyes. [link] :heart:

My heroes are Anne Deveson, Kay Redfield Jamison, Elyn Saks, and Carl Sagan. I admire their courage, passion, resilience, and writing. I believe that resilience, as well as compassion, empathy, emotional intuition, courage and drive are the best qualities a person can have.

I'm a street art enthusiast, I'm not a graffiti artist, but I love street art and love photographing it. I very much love derelict and decaying buildings and urban exploration.

I like records, horror and occult fiction, poetry, sushi, A Perfect Circle, Placebo, David Bowie, gloomy bear, antiques (particularly Victorian), clown dolls, and foreign or silent films.
I hope everyone had a happy new year and a merry season! :iconballoonplz: :iconballooonplz:
I'm sorry not to have been active lately. I was hospitalised again for the last few weeks.
Sadly I spent weeks, the Christmas period, and Christmas in hospital with an NG tube down my throat and stomach (pain), (waste of life), but awesomely, was released just in time for New Year's!
So I got to welcome the new year in outside of the hospital walls :) I'm still so happy about being out.
I'm re-adjusting to life, recovering, and feeling stronger than I was, but still on shaky ground.
Hopefully this year is much better and happier :dummy:
I might upload some poetry and photography later on when I've settled back home.
I hope 2016 is heralding exciting changes for everyone. :heart: much love :huggle:
