I am a librarian or at least that’s what it says on my namecard. I do not shelve books, not usually.
I have not gotten my Masters in Library Science so I guess that makes me technically, not a professional librarian.
My first degree was in engineering (civil), I lost interest in it after a year and scraped through with a dismal second lower honours.
My previous job(s) were mainly theatre and events-related.
I live on the 19th floor although I’m afraid of heights. I think about death at least twice a day whilst taking the lift.
I like reading but I haven’t read many of the great books, those that always get featured in top 100 listings or books you must read before you die lists.
I love cats and I’m not quite sure why.
Unfortunately, my cat mate (the cat who lives with me) doesn’t seem to like me much. She prefers the bosom of my landlandy.
I used to write more often and then I stopped. This blog is my attempt to get started again.
I prefer milk chocolate to dark. I find it more comforting.
I have to have at least 2 cups of coffee a day, doesn’t matter whether it’s 3-in-1, kopitiam-type, expresso etc.
I used to game a lot more, but I was more of a solitary gamer: console RPGs were my passion.
My first encounter with online gaming was DOOM, which was pretty straightforward, alas I could never get the hang of the more technically advanced games like Counterstrike.
I like beer, and prefer European beers. I also like whisky and rum. But I can’t take tequila due to an unfortunate puking event many years ago. I am ambivalent about vodka and gin. I prefer red wines over whites. I dislike overly fruity cocktails and usually choose: Mint Julep, Manhattan, Brandy Alexander, Lychee Martini.
It seems I am quite the alcoholic.
I don’t smoke.
I like salty foods, like cheese, ham, bacon, sausages etc. But not so much preserved vegetables.
I don’t like Indian food very much, especially the vegetarian type. But I love Japanese and I like eating raw food: sashimi, sushi, tartare… However, I doubt I would enjoy live food, like octopus which still squirms in your mouth.
I don’t like shopping much, if I see something I like I’ll usually buy it if it isn’t gonna send me spiralling into poverty. However, when buying gadgets I do read reviews and scout around abit more.
I am messy and I hoard things.
I like being alone but sometime I fear loneliness.
I like being around people but it makes me tired.
I don’t believe that people are inherently good or evil but rather have the ability to choose.
I do believe that humans as a species are generally stupid, because we often think we’re smarter than other living things.
I think that adults are dumber than kids because most do not attain the wisdom that’s supposed to come with age, rather they become overly set in their beliefs and viewpoints and pass this off as wisdom and maturity and whatnot.
I don’t want people to respect me because of my age. I also do not want people to disrespect me because I don’t look or put up an appropriate act for my age.
I don’t think I’ll ever grow up. My body, however, would probably disagree.
I am looking for a connection and I don’t know where to find it.
