Hello! *nervous waving hand goes here* The full name would be Zoran V. Gjorgiev, but you can call me Zoki. It’s shorter, easier to pronounce, and I’m used to it anyway. Plus there’s no need to be formal, unless you’re the Queen of England in which case I duly apologize. Outside of what you see presented on this blog I’m a Computer Science and Engineering major, born and still living in the small country of Macedonia (Europe). In my free time among other things I tend to help out as volunteer moderator here and there. HOL Virtual Hogwarts in particular has been like a virtual home where I have spent quite a big part of my life.
I’m an avid fan of writing/reading (can’t do one without the other), TV series (I avoid the reality stuff though), games (both video and browser) and photography. I follow too many TV Shows, get addicted to games way too easily, and I simply get lost in the vast world of writing and photography. That, along with coffee and chocolate, are the main reasons I get up in the afternoon. Yes, I don’t like mornings and I classify myself under the night owl species. Nothing personal against mornings, I just can’t operate as a human being unless I’ve stayed up the whole night so the morning becomes my evening. My bucket list has a single item, to one day travel around the whole world. Obviously that can’t be done in a single day, but you get the point.
The title of the blog, The Phantom Child, has its own origins as well. The segment as a whole comes from problem child, a child with disruptive behavior who seems to cause trouble left and right. The phantom in there is a common nickname I’ve used throughout my internet ventures. It’s also a nod to the Phantom of the Opera, which was one of the favorite novels and movies early on in my life. Together you could say it means an invisible troublesome kid, or you could say it has no actual meaning and it’s just a fancy name.
The Phantom Child.
