So what is this all about anyway?
Louise Elena. Louise is a family name on my mother's side,
which suited my father perfectly, because he 'always wanted
a little Louise'. Elena (Ee-lay-nuh) was the first middle
name they could find that they both liked - originally,
I was supposed to be Kathryn Louise, which changed slightly
when my twin sister was born.
Vital Stats: Born in May, 1984. Short,
slender, redheaded (with only a little bit of help), brown
Interests: Reading, writing, roleplaying,
movies, fantasy and science fiction, computers, dark chocolate,
libraries, Roman history.
Location: Sydney, Australia
Professional Life: I am currently employed
as a secretary/receptionist for a small company in the
Sydney CBD. It's not a job I enjoy, so I have resumed
my university studies by correspondence, with an aim to
get my BA in Library and Information Science. No, I am
not going to be a twinset and blue-rinse Librarian.
Other important things: I have two parents,
still together, a brother named Andrew (+2), and a twin
sister named Kathryn, all of whom I live with (for the moment).
I'm happily in a relationship. I keep a journal.
I'm bisexual, an atheist and left-wing leaning. I'm shy,
but that doesn't mean I don't have anything to say.
I purchased aestivus.org in September 2002, as a reward
for finding a new job. The job didn't last, but the domain
did - with rather a few changes in site design along the
way. The name comes from a Latin word, which means 'pertaining
to summer'; given I have both an affection for the Latin
language and a love of summer, it suits me well.
Some of the designs this site (and the one before it) has
gone through include:
Poppies ~ An
Agony in Eight Fits ~ I
am a Rock, I am an Island
Not Prince Hamlet ~ Full
of Grace ~ In
the Pit of Red ~
