The Musical Perceptions Meme

Greetings from Christchurch, New Zealand - where I am visiting friends. Having a wonderful time in this great city - though heading home tonight and go back to work tomorrow.

Questions, as always, are from Sunday Stealing.

1. Where did you grow up?

Until I was eight, I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia - then after that, I could be found in Myponga, South Australia - little place with funny name. Mum still lives there.

2. Where do you live now?

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia - a great city.

3. What do you think about religion?

Not that much really. I value spirituality over religion. A little bit of religion is fine - too much and with too much fervour is a bad thing. I think religion has some good messages about how to live your life - just not in large doses.

4. When did you start using online social media?

I think I got my facebook account about nine years ago.

5. What did you study to be?

A writer. My first degree is in Arts - English and Classics - it doesn't train you for anything really.

6. How are you at this point of your career?

Fine. I think when my Masters is over I might look for something a little more rewarding to do.

7. Do you use your real name on a blog?

No. I rather like my pseudonym, however.

8. Do people you work with read your blog?

The occasional person does - as I link it to my facebook page most weekends - but I am careful not to say much about where I work or my colleagues. I don't feel like being sacked. (Strict social media policy as one of my colleagues infamously found out about. He was an international sensation and he nearly got sacked)

9. Are you on the job market?

No. I have a job at the moment.

10. If you could go back in time to meet someone famous but now deceased, who would it be?

I would love to sit down and have dinner with Oscar Wilde. He sounds fun.

Your point of view about religion is very worth reading. You are so right in regards about religion. Visiting from Sunday Stealing

Work and social media is such a tricky thing.
