Standard Introductory Post

Six years ago I had a Live Journal ( do people still use LJ?) account and I used it as a diary. I wanted to create a warts and all account of everything that was happening to me daily and include my musings on life and so on.

The end result was a whiny piece of highly opinionated garbage with way too many posts about music. Needless to say that this blog will not be about that.

You could say that this is an attempt to just write down certain ideas that I have been harbouring for a long time, maybe the odd anecdote or weird situations I tend to find myself in. Maybe there will be a pic or comic that I like and will chuck it here.

A bit about me ( the boasting bit) :

Well I’m approaching my mid thirties and my likes are the usual : Reading novels , listening to music – mainly of the alt/pitchfork approved variety and I dj on a monthly basis, I adore watching cultish films and cartoons from the golden age of animation, I also record music under the moniker, The Suburbanite and my first release proper should be exposed to the public eye sometime next year, I write reviews for a local site called Stagedive and I have my own radio show called Vindictive Jukebox.

I’m in a relationship with a cute as a button girlfriend who is one hell of a motivational speaker, not to mention creative too!  Henceforth she will be known as The gf.

Oh yeah CATS – I love cats and wherever I go they crawl out of the woodwork.

Profession-wise I work as a school librarian and  I teach library skills to kids aged 5 – 16 and trust me, with the younger kids you have enough stories to fill a couple of volumes but I’ll try keep that to a minimum as I don’t really want to talk about the workplace – data protection and all that. All I can say is that although I’m constantly busy I am quite proud of developing literary skills and managing two libraries, which is not easy, In fact I do get pissed off when people think my job is relatively easy.

If we jump even further into the past; I was born in Canada and although I traveled quite a bit during my 14 year sojourn there, I lived mostly in an Indian reservation in northern Manitoba. Then in 1991 I moved to Malta (as my parents are Maltese) and I’ve been here ever since. Do I want to go back? hmmm let’s say that I am a little bit curious at this point in time.

That’s all I can think of for now but I assume that as the blog progresses more bits and pieces will start to materialise.  Originally I thought I would only write a few sentences – telegraphic style but it seems that I managed a bit more 🙂
