As this is my first post on the UCD:CSI blog I thought I would take some time to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about myself. Consider this a short bio.
Well my name is Chris Salij, I just about to turn 19 and I'm a first year Computer Science student in UCD.
I'm 6"1, weight 75Kg, have electric blue eyes and love long walks on the beach.
I suppose you might be interested in my interests and hobbies and whatnot. Well I'm not your typical (almost) 19 year old college student. I don't smoke or drink, for no other reason than I don't want to. But that doesn't stop me from going out and having fun. In fact you'll probably find me in the bar with friends about 4 days a week, though I keep to the water. I go rifle shooting every Monday evening with a couple of friends and I spend copious amounts of time in the elements cafe in the science block, just hanging around or studying. I like to stay fit although I don't really use the UCD gym, I just never got into the habit of going. As for actual college work, I'm actually really enjoying my course, though I'll write more about that in the following posts. I've got a passion for science in general but I also like languages. My elective for the first semester was french and next semester is Japanese. I love to read, my current book is The Bourne Supremacy - by Robert Ludlum, and let me tell you, the book and the movie are like night and day, the plots aren't even similar.
