Places To Go (on this site)
For those who want to know more about me there is a section of obligatory about me stuff lower down on this same page. The rest on this site should hopefully prove more interesting.
Fully: Not entirely unbloglike things. The name mainly speaks for itself, I wouldn't necessarily call any of the contents of this page Blogs in the traditional sense, but they do share certain features with blogs.
As you may have discovered (or be about to discover) further down this page: I write. So I've decided to devote a section of this site to writing as well.
The opposite number of the writing section, this is about what I read, have read or am planning to read. Who knows, I may even start 'talking' about the act of reading as such.
I've been a full-time Linux user for a while now and I enjoy playing around with it. This category will contain reviews when I try a new distro and other Linux tid-bits as the occur to me.
I originally considered making this a part of the reading category, but since that already has enough to deal with, much more than enough potentially, I've decided to separate other media. This can include anything, but should mainly deal with music, visual media and some computer stuff.
The obligatory about me stuff
First of all let me start by welcoming you to my little part of the worldwide web. At least that's kept me from writing the 'about me' paragraph for a couple of dozen words. I'm not sure what exactly to put here at this point and not convinced anyone cares. If you're reading this chances are that:
In a way I suppose the 'about me' stuff really matters as little as I think it does. Most of it, perhaps all of it, should become clear as you read these pages. Never the less I'll give you a few facts, just in case you actually want to know (or don't have anything better to do).
First of all, I'm from the Netherlands, from which it follows that I'm Dutch. (Dutch is also my native language, though this site is exclusively in English at this point). I'm a student, currently in my fourth and (hopefully final) year. My area of study is the law, especially constitutional law (and administrative law to some extend). Constitutional law, in the Netherlands, is not an area for practicing law. Article 120 of the Dutch constitution actually prohibits judges from judging laws by the constitution. I currently hope to go into research once I graduate.
Beyond my 'day job' as a student I write fiction, in English though it's not my native language. I haven't been published (so far), but I'm trying to polish some of my writings to the point where I'll be confident enough to try to get them published. On the flip side of this I'm also a reader. I wouldn't call myself a big reader at this point. I'm trying to read more, but I guess I already do read more than most people. More to the point I really enjoy reading.
The fiction I write is mainly science-fiction and fantasy right now, a preference that's also likely to be reflected in reading and media. I'm a fan as well as a writer, of if you will: a consumer as well as a supplier. And with that remark we've come to the end of "me in a nutshell".
