The Odd One Out

by The Odd One Out, with Dan Millen Tuesday, August 21 2012

Well this is it.

I am the odd one out in my team at work. It may sound like i'm angling for a sympathy vote but I'm not because the truth is, I actually enjoy the day to day chit chat of the women in my team. It is highly amusing.

Each week I will provide you with stories from my office as The Odd One Out.

I'll keep you posted!

All the best

Dan

The Odd One Out, with Dan Millen

I'm the odd one out!

I work in an office and my team/department is made up of all female company - except me.So the girls at work entertain me and with their permission, no names included of course, they said I could write a blog about our lifes. So here it is, it's all about them and how they make me laugh to myself.

But enough about my blog. I’ll give you a little insight into who I am. After all I will know a lot about you but you will know nothing about me apart from the fact that I write a blog.

So who am I?

I’m Dan Millen, aged 24, from Maidstone, Kent.

I enjoy most things as much as the next person – sports, movies, socialising and one not so common, writing.

Writing is my number one hobby.  I spend roughly eight to 10 hours a week working on manuscripts. Not only is this just writing, but it also includes developing, editing, re-writing and submitting to literary agents. 

I have already finished three books, writing my first when I was 17. I don’t see myself as an author and I won’t be able to until I get myself published. I’m a very enthusiastic writer with a determination to succeed and with hard work and discipline, I can do it!

If this has not bored you already and you are still reading, thank you.

I also enjoy travelling. I’ve already been fortunate enough to see some stunning places in the world, including:

CN Tower, Toronto, 
Niagara Falls, Niagara, 
Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, 
Coliseum, Rome, 
Piazza San Marco, Venice,
Acropolis, Athens,
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Yosemite National Park, California.

I just love to see other people and other cultures - the differences, the similarities and even the language contrast. My next big destination is Japan. I can’t wait to see Tokyo and I am actually learning basic Japanese so that I can attempt to speak Japanese when I get there. So far I am failing miserably, but I will continue to learn until I crack it.

So that’s me pretty much, I look forward to writing about you guys.

Thanks for taking the time to read and as the Japanese say, “Sayonara” (Goodbye), for now!
