The only thing I want out of life is a complete sentence.
I am a translator. Sometimes I still think of myself as a student; likely a side-effect of my job. The main activity of translation is research, therefore I am always learning about various subjects, with varying depth and focus. Feels like I am constantly writing a paper, of which the subject keeps changing. I suppose I would have to say I'm also an aspiring writer and/or poet, If I have to, I guess, if you forced me to call things by their proper names. I have to say I am not terribly interested in calling them by their proper names; I'm more interested in literary translation, poetry slam, and writing stories. Calling it "aspiring writer" makes it sound like I would like to write but somehow don't. That's quite inaccurate.
I'm from New Brunswick. East coast, represent, etc.
I am full of hope for the future, ambition, and enthusiasm. It takes a lot to bring me down. However, I acknowledge I am also very cynical. I think a measure of it is necessary. Clearly, the world we've built is perched on the brink of the rain-slick precipice of darkness (to pilfer a great man's words).
I don't watch TV and I don't miss it. I'm a gamer, but don't tell anyone. I'm a skeptic, with a K.
I enjoy long walks in a farmers' market or the fancy cheese aisle. I am a beer snob, but luckily I live in the best city in the world for beer snobs. Cheers!
