Team Australia new recruits 06/06/18 and why do physios hate people?

in teamaustralia •  6 months ago

Hey Aussies et al. I hope everyone is having a good day. I just went to physio to have my various injuries looked at and now my arm and hamstring hurt. More. I should also be looking forward to a big bruise appearing on my arm, apparently. Why does physio always hurt a lot and make you look like you've lost a fight before it makes you better? Urgh!

Candidate 1

Name and bio

@dunstuff is from the central coast/Newcastle area. He has spent a lot of time on the streets throughout his life. As a result, he would like to do a Diploma of Community Services specialising in youth services, but has not yet found a placement for the required hours.

Intro post here.

Fun fact

"If you're wondering why I went with a pony for an avatar, it's cos I have a face like Sarah Jessica Parker."

Nothing wrong with that. I'm a big fan of SJP. I loved Sex and the City as much as the next woman. Possibly more.

Candidate 2

Name and bio

@mumma-monza is @philippekiene's wife and lives in Siem Reap, Cambodia. She is a pre-K teacher at an International Academy and loves photography.   

Intro post here

Fun Fact 

"I enjoy big cups of coffee to get me through my days."

I think a lot of people enjoy big cups of coffee to get them through their days.

Candidate 3

Name and bio

@lasertx3 is a licensed electrician from Sydney. He's into pets, training for Spartan races, cars, and house renos.

Intro post here

Fun fact

"I can hum and whistle at the same time."

What? How is that even possible?

Candidate 4

Name and bio

@niuadventure is from Sydney. She's a mum who likes cooking, baking, and photography.

Intro post here

Fun fact

"I almost always have either my camera or GoPro with me when I'm out and about, because I like to record footage from my day to day life and make them into videos."

Well, people like vlogs. Plus if you stick 'em on dtube you might get a sweet dtube upvote.

Candidate 5

Name and bio

@idikuci is from Brisbane and a PhD dropout. He helps run comedyopenmic on steemit. 

Intro post here

Fun fact

"I once saw Ron Jeremy in real life in a hotel. I nearly went up to shake his hand... then I thought better of it. I know where that hand's been."

I'd never heard of Ron Jeremy until I googled him to see who you were talking about. For anyone else not in the know, he's a porn star, filmmaker, actor, and stand-up comedian.

Candidate 6

Name and bio

@stuffing is @galenkp's mate and from Adelaide. She is of the view that the experiences we gain are basically a whole bunch of stuff we jam into our ever-bulging life bag. Hence her name.

Intro post here

Fun fact

"I like to see how long I can go only on water, so far my maximum has been three days."

Cool. Someone was doing a water challenge here a couple of months ago. I can't remember who, but I feel like he did at least 10 days or two weeks or something. It was a while.

Candidate 7

Name and bio

@aidab21 lives in Sydney. She is from Argentina and moved to Australia as a teenager. She learnt English initially from reading and translating Little Golden Books. (Hmm, maybe that's what I should do to improve my Spanish!) 

Intro post here.

Fun fact

"I love colouring in and gardening."

These are two things I think I would like if I had more time, pencils, and had a garden (or at least a balcony).

Congratulations everyone, you're now part of Team Australia. 

The rules for joining Team Australia

If you’re not yet a member and want to be, this is what you need to do:

  1. Vote here for our resident steemit witness and our Minister for Welfare @ausbitbank.
  2. Send me your introduction post so I can find out a bit about you. If you’re new to steemit you'll have to write one so use the introduceyourself and teamaustralia tags to help boost your following. Use this handy guide by @teamsteem if you don't know what to write.
  3. If it’s not mentioned in your introductory post, tell me which city and country you’re in, cos let's face it, a lot of us live in Australia's fourth largest city—London. You need to have a connection to Australia to join.
  4. Tell me a fun fact about yourself. This can be anything. For example, maybe you have eight kids and three dogs, or you rode your bike across America, or you won the blue ribbon for javelin throwing at sports day back in high school, or Toadie came into the pub you work at one day and you served him a beer, or, maybe you can fit 55 maltesers in your mouth like Ed Sheeran can. It doesn’t matter what it is, I want a fun fact about you! The more fun, the better.
  5. Regularly check the Team Australia and Australia tags and upvote/follow the content you like. You can show your support by following the centerlink curation trail in steemauto. Instructions are here.
  6. Comment below or DM me in PAL-Discord that you want to join.

Once I receive this information I will try my best to write a good introductory paragraph about you for the official Team Australia membership updates. So the better your information is, the better I can make you sound. Where relevant, please use the teamaustralia and australia tags to promote your work. I will try and post weekly updates.

Great post ! Very wonderful new people~ WELCOME ONE AND ALL \o/

choo, physio doesn't hate u~ it's just.......... tough love!



Well if it fixes all my things, I'll be happy. I had a lot of needles stuck in me today though, with electricity to give them a kick! Hence, the residual pain.


............ nooooooooo that sounds super uncomfortable~ (im afraid of needles) i hope you wont be sore for too long :< and yes, i hope it shall fix all of your things, also !!!

sends choo bestest vibes


Aw, thanks for the vibes. I hate needles too (and used to be quite good at passing out after), but this actually wasn't too bad. They are acupuncture needles so it was better.

Welcome to all the new members!

I work nights so if you need help with anything after the sun goes down i’m your man :)

#justholla #mateshelpingmates #mallsballers



Not sure why I went straight to this when you said "I'm your man", but I did. Go with it. It's a good song.


omg, i do that too... someone says something, and im like 'u mean like in thissong?' adds link

I welcome new members! Loved the photo and thanks for the shout out. See ya you in December:)



Welcome to the new members. If you are Melbourne based - come join us at the meetup or the dinner (24 & 25 June).


Cool! I've updated my post and resteemed yours from TA account.

lol, you know they put in the work if it hurts.
Greetings and welcome to all the new recruits!


Lol, yes. I hope this works. I have a decent amount of residual pain going on right now.

Congrats @kieranstone 🤱🤱🤱🤱

Welcome everyone !

Thanks for the witness shout, Choo 😘😘😘😘


I like to tinker with that section every now and again. Should have done it before, but it only came to me today.


Really appreciate it 💓

Welcome folks! Catch you in the discord or around :)

For a second I thought you wrote interstellar traveller. I wish 😋

Welcome to the new members!

My first visit to the physio was like that too. I guess it is a normal thing. But you're a tough cookie. You'll be right after a couple of visits.


I hope so. I'd love my injuries to be fully gone.


All the best on your recovery. Just keep going and do the strengthening exercises they give you. (something I didn't do lol)

Welcome to all the new members...Enjoy the group


Thanks Vince. How are your legs today after your marathon? Still good? Or did some major delayed DOMS kick in?


Actually feeling pretty good. It was a rainy and cold day so it ended up being a slow run. I am walking around pretty good thanks.


I get to be physio to my daughter as I massage her back every day or it cramps up. I think she's getting used to it though as she doesn't squirm like she used to! 😈
She does gymnastics, by the way, in case you were thinking I just enjoy torturing her for no reason.


Lol. I didn't think that until you wrote it!

Does she do a lot of backbends? I find that keeps my back pain free. If I don't do yoga for a couple of weeks I definitely notice it in my back (not the the extent you're talking about though).


Actually backbends are what tends to set her off at the moment. Probably to do with her growing so much at the moment. Her sister had similar issues at the same age.


Oh interesting. I hadn't considered the (young) age factor.

A very warm welcome to all new Team Australia members @dunstuff
@aidab21 And thank you very much for featuring my photo in this segment @choogirl I am so grateful for yours and the entire @teamaustralia's wonderful support. It makes such a difference.


Thanks Trudee. I always appreciate your comments. Happy to feature your photos. I hope you got a few extra upvotes out of it.


Thanks for the warm welcome @trudeehunter. So awesome to be part of @teamaustralia :)


My pleasure @mummu-monza We are very blessed to have such a supportive group of people at @teamaustralia Its really nice to meet you.


Lovely to meet you too! I look forward to bumping into each other again :)

Welcome new recruits, you bloody rippa!

Also, cool to see another Brisbanian on Steem @idikuci I didn't realise during our interactions over on the COM Discord that you're from Brisbane as well, cool stuff. Slowly, but surely we are taking this place over.


There's actually a lot of people from Brisbane, but most of them aren't active anymore.

Welcome everyone! Yay another Brisbanite @idikuci !

The Australian team looks fully loaded, welcome to all the newbies. I am not in Australia but wish i was.

@dunstuff what uni/tafe are you looking at enrolling in.

I did community services and development. I'd recommend doing the dual dip as it opens up more options.

The education facilities tend to locate the placement for you, you can also RPL life experience.

Have you thought about relocating for the course? Victoria University is a great institution


i love melbourne. first ime i came to melb as for a weekend in 2001.. i stayed 8 and a half years

Hello all of you, new and wonderful people :D.
