See what they made me write

All About Me...

Important Info
All you need to know about me to read my journal is I'm obsessive. At 13 I discovered Mills & Boon and read almost every one published for the next 10 years. I then branched out into historical romances, and recently discovered yaoi. I love anime, and will watch just about any anime show, my favourite of all being Naruto.

When you combine Naruto and yaoi you get SasuNaru (or at least you do when I do the maths, I also open to the answer of NaruSasu as long as the two are together). SasuNaru or NaruSasu is my OTP, and no matter what anyone else says I think they're destined for each other. I spend a LOT of my time reading naruto fanfiction, why I originally joined LJ, but I am a fan of lot's of other shows - anime & live action, Asian and Western.
My Job
I occassionally rant about my job so I probably should mention it here. I work at the University of Otago in Dunedin for the Information Technology Services Division as an Administrative Assistant. This basically means I handle anything from accounts to organising business cards, to developing content for their webpage to answering phones. On the whole I love my job. The people are awesome and sometimes the work is fun. On occassion though I am either inundated with work or have nothing to do for weeks at a stretch and will sometimes have to complain. One of the few parts of my personal life I actually talk about
My Studies
In addition to working fulltime I am also dumb enought to be attempting to study fulltime. I have wandered around between Chemistry, Classics, Management, Accounting, Japanese, Maori, and Psychology. I've finally settled on a Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies. It's awesome. I get to take random papers in Religious Studies, Politics and History as well as some awesome papers like Japanese Film & Modern Asian Culture. Papers for this year were: Words & Ideas, Modern Japanese Film, Introduction to Japanese Culture, Introduction to Oranisations & Management. Current papers are: Japanese Literature in Translation, Modern Asian Culture, Ancient Religions and Judaism, Christianity & Islam. Sometimes I really do think I'm crazy!
My Life
I live in a gorgeous little flat with one other person. We have 3 cats, Kisa (a timid tortoiseshell I chose), Sasuke (a little black and white kitten that my ex-flatmate bought and then handed over to me) and my flatmate's cat Daisuke (who follows us to work) My flatmate also has a turtle called Barney (after the HIMYM character). On the whole things are great, Most of my day is spent either at work or at home in front of the TV, pretending that I'm actually studying, when really chances are I'm watching something or reading fic (or both!). I'm completely addicted to junk food, and will often have nothing but a bag of pods for dinner. God help me if I ever learn to drive, considering how much I love KFC which is just down the hill. If BK & Maccas get any closer it'll be frozen coke everyday! I've just started designing my own webpage as something to help me get my head around CSS.
