Who Am I?
I know and love God in my life for reasons that one day I’ll put in a testimony page. I’m engaged to Kita, hopefully I’ll remember to update this page after the 12th September 2009 as then I’ll be her husband, and very happy about it. I’m a student of the University of Portsmouth, studying Computer Network Management and Design and am currently on a placement year with Hewlett Packard living in Reading.
That’s more of a ‘where I fit in the world’ I suspect. Who am I? Well I love my fiancee more than I can hope to show. I am lucky enough to have some great friends and family who I really enjoy spending time with. I enjoy fine food and drink, perhaps more than I ought to! Computer networks get my juices flowing, hence I’m one of those lucky people who gets paid to do what they enjoy. I like playing with the latest gadgets, although I feel ‘toy’s’ is a far better and more appropriate term.
Music is important to me. It helps me relax and focus. I could have studied it at uni in one form or another but I’d never want a job based on it as I like to keep it as my first hobby. My favourite bands are Pink Floyd and Genesis and I’ve been fortunate enough to see them both live. I also enjoy classical music but to sum-up my music tastes I would say that basically it is an appreciation for live music played well by someone with a true gift for their instrument. For this reason I have invested heavily, possibly more than I should have as a student in my Hi-Fi
Sports, I like to watch Formula 1 and the feeder Grand Prix divisions as well as WRC and one day I’d like to be able to work for a motor sport company, keeping their networks going. My football team is Liverpool, I’ve never lived there but it was my Mum’s team and for some reason I’ve always supported them even when living in a mainly Man U house.
There’s a lot more but you’ll get bored so hopefully you’ll get an idea by reading the blog some more!
Originally it was something of a coping mechanism, a way to get thoughts out of my head and commited to ‘paper’ to learn from. Then when I moved away from Oxfordshire it was a way to keep friends and family up to date with how things were changing for me in Portsmouth (and Reading), a purpose it serves to this day. I hope one day I’ll look back through it all, be amused by my mistakes and see how I’ve developed, that’s the hope anyway.
