Helloooooooo!?!? Jessica?!?!

You are one of Ozzu's newer members and you've made a lot of great posts, helped a lot of people and generally been a good egg.

So, of course, I have some questions.


1. Education; Where are you at, and where are you going?

2. Tell us about your relationship - with pop-culture.

3. How did you find your way into Ozzu? What kept you here? What's your favorite category, and/or forum?

4. Age?

5. Tell us about hobbies you like that don't involve a computer.

6. Tell us about where you live.

7. Do you expect that I will ever return your dodgeball(TM) throw?

8. Tell us about your romantic interests.

9. Tell us about your best quality (real or imagined).

10. Who is your hero?


Please feel free to add your questions for Jess to my list. :D
Just remember, this thread is about Jess. Violators will be redirected to an alternate universe or held up to public ridicule, whichever comes first.

Thanks DM :) Now I had no idea this was coming so bare with me!

1. Education; Where are you at, and where are you going?


I'm currently studying computer science and business management as part of a career development plan offered to me when I moved to the US from England.

I work as an Independant Business Development Manager - or in other words, people hire me to look at their companies current position and reccomend/implement any development opportunites they can exploit.

I'm hoping once I graduate from my course's that I will be in a position where I can work independantly and set up my own firm. *It's nice to dream*

The reality is i'll probably end up working full time as a business develpment manager for an e-commerce company while gaining the experience and funding to set up that firm :)

2. Tell us about your relationship - with pop-culture.


My relationship with pop culture........ I'm not entirely sure I understand what you mean - but if your asking do I like pop music? Well the answers No.

See, pop music is simply an exploitation of children who are too young to know any better. I recently heard a song on the radio (while in England) by a 13 year old artist, who was singing about love!! How can a 13 year old sing about something they havn't yet experienced? Its an exploitation.

Then theres the kids who look up to these people, i'm wondering how many little girls there are out there that now don't want horse drawn carriages and a big white wedding.... but want to get married in their tracksuits and eat hamburgers at their weddings........

If you have no idea what i'm talking about http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/09/ ... click=true <- see here.

Then theres the artists themselves. Demanding thousands of pounds for a single performance, demanding the dressing rooms be set up in a certain way, demanding this, demanding that.......

They earn millions ... and then they have the cheek to cry about the fact that some people download music online .... I saw a great southpark episode addressing this situation once - if you havn't seen it - I fully reccomend it.

*Lawyers Note* Im not supporting the download of illegal music - but rather just having a general moan about the artists being Divas :D

3. How did you find your way into Ozzu? What kept you here? What's your favorite category, and/or forum?


I came accross Ozzu through G. a few months ago. I was one of them stalkers for a while who read the posts but never posted myself. This was more down to the time factor than anything else. But I always came back to read the new threads as they were really interesting and I was able to take a lot of usefull information from them.

Then I was reading some of the threads in the seo/google forums and realised the information that was being given wasn't correct or was of no use - so I decided to make a few posts to help the guy and I got a bit carried away I guess.

Favourite categories are the seo/google forums *Idea: An online marketing forum in general would be great - I think it would allow people greater opportuity to discuss ways of promoting their sites other than seo.*

Anyhow - I also like the graphic design forum, as it gives me the opportunity to have a play and improve my own skills.

4. Age?


I'm 17 years old - I turn 18 on the 4th October.

5. Tell us about hobbies you like that don't involve a computer.


I love snowboarding. I have been doing it since I was 8. Over the years I have visited places like Switzerland, Andora, France and many more pursuing this hobby.

Since I moved out to the US I started learning surfing. The balance is very much the same as snowboarding so I don't think I do too bad. The waves are a bit bigger here than in England though Lol. :D

Quote:
6. Tell us about where you live.


I live in Miami Florida on a hill :) Im a little secluded from everyone which is nice as I have to meet and great people all day in my job.

It was a real eye-opener when I moved here from England though. Everyone is so pretty and perfect. It was like walking onto a film set.

Currently though due to weather conditions im staying with friends in Chicago.... feels like a million miles away from home, and im wondering if I am going to have a home to go back to heh. :roll:

7. Do you expect that I will ever return your dodgeball(TM) throw?


No because yr a great big wimp hehe :D j/k

Quote:
8. Tell us about your romantic interests.


I left my boyfriend back home in England. I did offer him the opportunity to come out here with me but he wasn't up for it, so he stayed.

We keep in touch but just as friends now. Since being out here I havn't met anyone real special. I have some great friends and thats good enough for me :)

If any guy's interested im a pretty picky person *wouldn't have guessed hey?* :P I need to be treated like a princess..... but Im no diva! lol

Quote:
9. Tell us about your best quality (real or imagined).


I read the getting to know nucleo thread. Very interested in why he wanted to impress his teacher but thats for another day ;)
He said he wasn't able to tell people when things were pretty poor, he'd just say it looks good to be polite.

Well im probably the complete opposite to that. If something isn't good, i'll speak my mind and let them know. I think this is a good quality as people can always rely on me for the truth. I think its better than giving people false hopes.

However i'm not horrible with it - I actually did a course on it lol.
If you wan't to give someone good honest feedback without crushing them - you give them a praise sandwich.

i.e - say something good about the project/idea .... then tell them the bad bit, and end with something good.

"I love your hair, that dress makes you look like a whale but your shoes are lovely... " :P get the idea?

*looking back at all that I have written - i talk too much.... thats probably a bad quality.


Quote:
10. Who is your hero?


Out of all the questions this one has stumped me.........
I don't really think theres one person I look up to 100% other than my mom, & to give that as an answer would be a cop out.

While in England there was a group of fathers *Fathers For Justice* or something like that. Anyway they were campaigning for fathers to be given greater access rights to their children when marriages failed. I respect that group a lot, as I fully believe a child shouldn't have to grow up without their father/ or mother because their marriage didn't work.

The person who comes up with the cure for cancer would be my hero..... *straight from a beauty queen speech lol*

In other words, I look up to and take inspiration from a lot of people.

11. Tell us about your current project?
12. Do you have a website online at the moment?. if so, how did you make it, and for what reason?


I'll combine these questions.
Currently, alongside studying and working I am setting up a site with a few respected friends.

http://www.ozami.com

It is still in development and their isn't anything to see there except a for a directory.

The bigger picture for Ozami is to become a portal for guy's on the net.
i.e - Every resource a guy could ever need would be found under one one web domain easily.

Obviously alongside the directory their would be free email / related news stories / forums / chat / all of the usual portal stuff.

Im currently in the process of developing a search algorithm, I should have it completed soon so look out for the Ozami bot's (4 of them) that will start to crawl the net for the search engine :)

I've hired a team of writers to produce content / articles / cover news stories / film reviews / along with a top girl to give relationship advice, etc.

The idea and the reason for creating Ozami, was that the internet is largely populated by males. Their isn't yet a resource that stands out as number 1 to fill the gap as a "guy's guide to the net"

Everything will stay clean, no pop ups/unders no dodgy enlargement orr viagra ads / everything just a click away from one web site.

Hopefully we can develop a cult following, then progress into the mainstream.

Well I hope you all have a better idea as to who I am and what I do. If I missed anything - ask away :P

Funny! I thought the exact same thing when I heard Avril Lavigne telling me that, "...life is like this". I think she was 15 or 16 when she recorded it.

Sounds to me like your business aspirations are well within your grasp. I'd call it a battle plan more than a dream.

:thumbsup: Thanks!

Fantastic answers Jess! You are a really interesting person, interesting to me because of your age and how much you have accomplished so far - I can only imagine this will incresae over time and before long you WILL be running your own company. I agree with you on the diva thing, I've never been into that kind of music - or culture.
