Who are ya?
Hi, my names Harley, I’m 23 years old and live in Wellington, New Zealand. I’m originally from Christchurch (also New Zealand). I’m currently a student, doing a commerce degree. I live with my fiancé Steven, and my cat called Mouse.
So did you go straight from high school to university?
Not exactly, high school wasn’t for me. I spent a bit of time doing entrepreneurship activities and doing voluntary work. I met my beautiful cat at the rescue cattery, he was originally dumped at the beach in a rubbish bag. After he met me he wouldn’t let anyone else cuddle him apart from me. I consider him my son, and he acts like a little prince… thus my name, kittyking.
After high school I went into work, and was there for about three years. My life changed on February 22nd 2011 at 12:51 when there was a massive earthquake – many people died, many others were injured, work was never the same, my mum broke up with her partner, I broke up with my boyfriend.
So life turned to those smelly brown things?
At the time yes, but in hindsight it was for the better. It opened up my eyes to who my true friends were, I realised I needed a new challenge my work was just too basic, and I also met the man of my dreams. Don’t get me wrong, February 22nd was a still a tragedy for so many ways, there are more angels in heaven… but I prefer to focus on the positives.
Speaking of positives, do you play tennis?
Yes, I love it. I started playing tennis quite late, due mostly to some health conditions. But I’ve never let that hold me back – doctors said I would never be able to run, but in 2011 I completed a half marathon. Yes its true I finished it with an injured leg, however I finished it, with a smile of my face. I played tennis a bit in high school, and have only just recently returned. My fiancé also plays it, he’s far better than me… oh yea, and he’s a great tennis player too.
What’s your view of tennisforum?
I’ve been on tennisforum for quite a long time, and a lot of things have occurred in my life during this stage. I’ve made a lot of friends on this site, one in particular is now a regular quiz mate and helped me meet the man of my dreams. As is well known, I’m not a fan of over moderation and I do believe creativity should be applauded rather than deleted… but hey, that is their decision – I still love the site, and 99% of the members on it (the rest can kiss my cats rear end).
Lastly, one surprising thing about you.
I was born on 11/11/89, and got engaged on 11/11/11 on my 22nd birthday. Perhaps I’ll live to be 111?
Okay if I steal some photos from your facebook profile?
Well you wouldn't be the first too *cough step mother *cough mother
One last thing... have to ask, who are you predicting to win Roland Garros?
Lol, too early to jinx anyone just yet.
