While I've got your attention, perhaps I should say a few things about myself (but, ahh, where to begin).
For starters, I am not much of a "journaler" by nature. I don't seem to have the stamina for it. (I am also the type of person who frequently and incessantly talks oneself out of things.) However, I am working to change that with this here DW account!
As for real facts about me, well, you've come to the wrong place. I'm sensitive about my age, given that my mindset and mentality feel more ageless than anything else. (You're welcome to try guessing at it, but I more than likely won't let on if you're correct or not.) I am perhaps even more sensitive about my given name. In short: I despise it. I don't go by it except at work, and even then only because I wasn't quick enough to head it off. I've yet to find a name that suits me and so, for now, remain relatively nameless (which is both good and bad). I'm gender-fluid, but have as of yet to figure out how to explain that to most people in real life. I have a wonderful girlfriend, fawkesfires, with whom I live. We have three beautiful feline children who all enjoy the exact same hobbies: eating, sleeping, and making typing generally impossible for us.
My interests are outlined in brief in my profile, but for the most part I will be ranting (and/or raving) about a few particular things:
- Video games (particularly more "retro" things from the '90s)
- SHINee (and other
manufacturedK-pop groups Icannothelpit)
- Work (but who doesn't?)
- Stupidity (both mine and that of others)
That last one is perhaps the most particularly important, as I, some day in a hopefully not-too-distant future, would like to start doing some freelance translation work. Additionally, I just simply and flat-out adore languages. If you speak a language other than English, I'd love to learn some vocabulary from you! (As a related aside, I am currently very interested in gaining a Francophone penpal who, ideally, is interested in gaining and Anglophone penpal to practise with. Though forgive my sub-par French at first, s'il vous plaît!)
Well, dearest Reader, if I've not bored you to tears or sent you off screaming, yet, I would be delighted to find a comment notification awaiting me. Well, unless it's mean. Nobody likes mean comments.
