I was buying a pot of beer in the city the other day, flashing my orthodontic bling bling when the bartender asked me for my ID. I showed her my uni card and my Japanese alien card, but apparently neither counted. 'You really should carry your Australia ID with you the next time," she chastised before grudgingly giving me my beer.
This happens to me fairly often when I am out in the city- apparently I can pass off as a 16 year-old, and it is both amusing and insulting that they find it hard to believe I am really 27. I have my Asian blood to thank for that, and my new braces certainly wouldn't help my cause either.
In other news, I am absolutely swamped with uni work and don't have much else to say except that I am sad to see summer go.
