Saturday night on Craigslist.


Seriously though, I'm disappointed to come across a job-posting for an intern with Blatt Publishing in Berlin. After resigning myself to a job teaching English or working in a caffe - don't get me wrong, both have their perks, and hell any job will do - I now come across something I'd love to do.
I knew I recognized the name too, and it took a moment to realize why : Wolf At The Door, a fucking twisted novel Negin picked up in Prague.
It's not actually published by Blatt, rather by Twisted Spoon, but he writes for the magazine and they just published a collection of his poems in book form. This intern job would be sweet simply for the opportunity to meet him.

The problem? Starts in September, and I just bought an October 4th plane ticket.

It's been .... let's see, about 13 months since I last maintained and updated a blog online. Through the magic of the internet I'm sure I could hone that down to an exact date and time, but for now we'll leave it at that.

If you care to track it back, my livejournal account can be found here.

It's hard to say why I left my LJ to fester and rot back then, and even harder to say why I am interested in starting this new blog up now. Currently I'm going out of my skull with boredom (I took up running again today, if that says anything) in my hometown of Oakville, ON, near Toronto. I'm also waiting on a visa to visit and live in Berlin, Germany.

Essentially, my lack of other options for entertainment/communication led me to get this going but really does not give me any content of interest to write about. So hopefully I'll solve that in the near future, whether in Ottawa, Amsterdam or Berlin,

Or, who knows--> Something of interest might actually happen in Oaks!
