I'm always up for new friends. I noticed on your profile that you also like classical music and would like a bit of my ipod then I think :)

Funny: I peeked at your profile too!

After I typed my previous comment, I noticed that you had a degree in History. As recently stated (, I discovered that I could tack on a history minor to the degree I'm working on with only two semesters worth of work.

I did a degree in History and then have done absolutely nothing with it...that's usually the case with BA's isn't it?

Statistically speaking? I think so.

But that's not true that you didn't use your degree: you used it when you travelled.

What do you do now for work?

At the moment I do payroll and HR for a construction company. I've been there for six years and at the moment it feels like five years too many...I can't wait for Friday and Christmas break!

I know that feeling.

Why did you decide to do payroll? Too much adventure early on in life?

Payroll decided on me really. When I got back from overseas I was struggling to find a job so I pretty much took the first one that was offered to me because I was broke. It was as a receptionist but I quickly moved into the accounts office and started doing accounts payable. The payroll lady went on maternity leave, I started doing that and have been doing it ever since...

What kind of work would you really like to do?

That's the age old question isn't it? If it could involve travel somehow I'd be happy.

Now you're talking!

If I could get paid to travel the world I'd be there in a heartbeat!

Pray tell, what's on your iPod?

A mixture of things but quite a bit of classical music (variety of composers, although my favourites are Gershwin and Khachaturian). I also have a lot of soundtracks (from musicals mostly) and a fair bit of John Williams' music. Any film scores you recommend?

The only thing I know from Gershwin is Rhapsody in Blue. I've never heard of Khachaturian, nor would I even know where to begin pronouncing that name.

I started my score collection with James Horner's Apollo 13; Hans Zimmer's Hannibal wasn't too far behind. I like Zimmer, though I think he has John Williams disease (he repeats himself. But if you get into Horner's work, you'd think the disease should be nammed after him.)

John Powell's Bourne Ultimatum and Mr. & Mrs. Smith should be among your collection as should Thomas Newman's American Beauty, Meet Joe Black and Road to Perdition.

I shall check those ones out. Thanks :)

Khachaturian's most famous piece would be Sabre Dance, which I'm sure everyone has heard once or twice in their life.

I have Googled. It had a familiar ring to it. I liked it.

We've played Sabre Dance a couple of times in the concert band I'm in. Very energetic.

In case LJ didn't notify you, I friended you.

Yep. Friended you back (in case LJ is being wonky like it was last night for me).

I'm getting emails on your comments, but I haven't gotten the friend email yet.
