Welcome to WA

West Australia is the Mother of Invention because, well, it's made of small towns with few and far between.

So it seems... but there is more to this state than meets the eye. This blog aims to locate and educate, so get to know your state well!

"What’s a current struggle for you?"
“Mum is not letting us go to enough parties.  Last time we came home late and the previous time before that we got locked up.  There was a lot of people street drinking and rioting.  This one Asian kid was trying to start a fight, but was laid out by a much bigger kid.  The police arrived and were grabbing anybody.  They took my brother and I and gave us one chance to call our parents, otherwise we would be sleeping in jail overnight.  We call my Dad like fifteen times, but it turns out he was in the shower.  He calls back just in time and picks us up.  Our Dad was cool because it had happened to him growing up.  We were afraid of our mum, though.  She grounded us for a week and then laughed at us because we got in trouble.  Now we just leave the party scene if trouble happens.”
