Ok. It's official. I've read the postings in this topic a few times, reticent to post anything...I am certainly the grandmother on this forum at 35!!

My name is Denise.
I'm a:

full time grad student getting MLA in English at St. Thomas Univ here in Houston, TX.

mother of 3 small sons--they all know Keats, as he's planted on every wall and bookshelf in the house...

singer--for $, yes!! alas, that is also how I ate in undergrad...

Keats fanatic...discovered him at 17 in my high school English class...when I read "Ode to a Nightingale" for the first time--I realized there was a kindred spirit out there...been in love with him ever since.

poet--or so I write poetry...have been published in small journals--campus journals, mainly--it is the only language that truly gets through to me...

lover of all music--classic rock, 70's am gold, Beethoven, Wagner...you name it--I can't live without music

teacher--taught high school English--until I resigned to go to grad school full time--I miss my students many days--many other days, I don't!

complete girl--I cry at sad/romantic movies--"A Room with a View"!!

incurable Romantic...it is the only way I know how to live--I fall in love probably about once a week. :lol:

I love this forum. It's very comfortable and replete with extraordinarily intelligent folks...I am happy to be in such company.

Thank you very much Denise, we are all flattered :oops: :oops:

I'm glad you like it.

Sometimes I feel I'm a bit like a janitor, cleaning the floors of a school - it's the puplis who make the school community, not the staff.

No, Saturn. You should feel important, indeed--like the noble, deft administrator that you are. :)

Oh, hell--go on and take a compliment--you may as well...just in case there's ever anyone around the corner waiting to bring you down.

Carpe Diem, Saturn. Life is achingly short. :wink:

Hello, thought I would introduce myself and this seems like the perfect place. My name is Jim and I am 37 years of age (sorry Denise but I am now the oldest) I live in Lapland in northern Finland and I am at present studying Finnish Language, I have recently graduated from my first course and am now undertaking a more advanced course.

I am also about to start a TEFL Engilsh language teaching course, and at the moment I teach English privately in my spare time ( of which there is not a lot). I am single although I was married for a number of years in my twenties

My hobbies include Reading, Dj'ing Deep House & Techno ( not the hands in the air rubbish, the deeper thoughtful kind) I also enjoy Cycling and Ice Hockey.

I have worked as an Hotel Bar Manager and as a Record Shop Manager, I also ran my own Night in London for Five years.

I will be posting some poetry on the correct thread.......

Nice to meet you all.....

Jim.

*sigh*

Well, Saturn was nice enough to sticky this thread so we could all see it easily, so I suppose I should step up and say:

AAIIIGH! :oops: I'm the oldest thing out here. Got you passed by three years, Jim. (Welcome, by the way!)

I just got out of grad school a few months ago with a Masters in Library and Information Science with an archives focus, so in addition to being old, I have the most boring-sounding degree!

After school, my brain was still all revved up, but I no longer had something interesting to occupy it, so when I (through an interesting electronic journey) found this site in my hated month of August, I was immediately attracted to the scholarly content and the human passion.

I am given to flashes of brilliance surrounded by long periods of silent introspection. The brilliance will not be seen in this forum, however, as I am a mere sponge, absorbing as much as I can from all of you who have such a passion for Keats.

Hey, nothing boring about archives if you ask me, Distinctly. ;)

And I totally sympathize with needing something intellectual to keep your brain engaged. That was a big part of my coming to this forum after graduating as well. Feel free to be as brilliant as you want, because we love that stuff here. :wink:
