Why I'm here

Tell me what you love and hate about working for Torchwood. – Jack

Alright, if you're sure you want to know... ;)

Okay, let's start with the things I love. First and foremost I love the sense of being able to do something for others. I genuinely want to help and protect people. Make the world a better place, so to speak.

Secondly, I enjoy the things I learn every day. There's so much out there that I had no knowledge about, and while some of the things we get into contact with is quite malicious, it does contribute to my view of the world and the universe at large. The human race really is pretty much up itself, thinking we're the only intelligent life in the solar system. How wrong we all are to assume such a thing. There's still so much I want to see and do and most of it I wouldn't ever have heard about if it wasn't for Torchwood.

And last, but certainly not least, I care about my colleagues and you, Jack. You've all become my friends, good friends, and I wouldn't change working with you for the world.

The hating part is pretty much the same as it was while I was still working as a PC; not being able to save everyone, telling those left behind that someone they love has passed away, dealing with emotionally draining issues. It never gets any easier. To be honest, it's even harder to do it as a Torchwood employee. Nowadays I can't even tell the truth anymore to a heartbroken mother or worried spouse. I need to deliver lies to ease the pain. It's hard and something I hate to do, even though I understand the importance of it.

Which brings me to lying in general. I always considered myself to be an honest person, but since I work here I can't always be so open anymore. It hurts to have to lie to those I love and cherish and it's brought me many days and nights packed with worry and guilt trips.

But, at the end of the day, the positive parts of working for Torchwood outweigh the negative issues. I'm glad to be here, with you all, and I hope to be around for a long time to come.

Childhood and the police

Tell us some stuff from the police, from your childhood. – Ianto

Okay, dear Ianto (and anyone else who reads this), let's start at the beginning.

Fair's fair

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

The quiz everyone has been doingCollapse )


I'll regret this. I know I will.

"One question.
One honest answer.
That's all you get.

You get to ask me one question.
Any one question.
Anything, no matter how crazy it is.

No catch.
But I dare you to repost this and see what people ask you."


Oh God!

And another one


Stolen from about everyone

Since I can't sleep and everyone has been doing it, here's another list-thingy.

Tea break

I am not procrastinating my work. Really, I'm not! Stolen from Owen, because I have nothing better to do.
