The Hawk? What the…?

So, I’m trying to think of what I would want to know about me if I didn’t know me so well.
I guess I’d wonder what I looked like. I should dig out a picture.

My name is Hawk. Some people call me Sarah.

I’m a girl. I’ve been one all my life.
I was born and bred in Auckland, New Zealand. I count myself pretty lucky for that. This country is second to none. If you haven’t been here, come soon. But don’t bring any poisonous insects or bird flu. I’ve been to lots of other countries. I’ve loved them all, but not like I love Aotearoa. This is home.

My sister says that I’m hard work – in a nice way. I’m not.

I used to be a software developer and web designer who studied to be an architect. Now I’m a mother of twins. It’s my main job and it’s by far the hardest I have ever had. I am also fortunate enough to have a part time job. I think it’s possible that it’s the best job in the world. Probable, even.

As long as I’m always challenged, life is good.

Over and out.

  1. I just came back from your country and while it pissed it down and was foggy most of the time (it stopped me from seeing Ruapehu and friends, most of the west coast on the South Island and most of Wellington and the surrounding area), I adored it. I was only there for 10 days, but it was great. I spent three days in Auckland and those were the best, it’s a wonderful place. Devonport is a lovely place and I walked up Mt Eden, from where the view is pretty amazing. I was going to walk to and up One Tree Hill, but I ran out of time. Plus the tree isn’t there any more, so that was a bit of a disappointment.

    I have to say, though, that, like you say, the people are the most important thing – you Kiwis are the shit. And I thought the Australians were friendly… the kiwis are friendly and helpful and so much more. I loved ’em. Not to mention what a difference it makes to see such a racial mix and the native population so well-integrated, in comparison to Australia. I’ve been here for three months and only seen one Aboriginal man.

    Well, this was a bit random telling it to a complete stranger, but I followed the sitepoint link and after reading your blurb it prompted me to comment. I can see you’re really proud to be a Kiwi and cannot blame you.

  2. Hi Hawk, your blog is wonderful. I love your straight forward style, you seem to make everyday events appear special. Thanks for sharing, you are a lovely young lady.

  4. Hello,
    My maiden name was also Sarah Hawk!
    When I got married I added the H from Hawk as a second middle initial rather than keep the entire thing. My siblings & I were athletes in highschool and Hawk was the nickname for all three of us too. It was a good idea for you to keep it around after the wedding.
    I wish you the best.

  5. Hey there,
    I randomly typed in My name is hawk on google and your site was the first thing that popped up and now I’m wasting away my time reading this page haha but while I’m here I just wanted to say that my name is actually Hawk! I’ve never met anyone actually named Hawk in my non cyber life!

    P.S. I’m from Canadaaaa!

    -Hawk

  6. Hawk-
    My wife and I decided last night to name our new son (he is not here yet) Hawk. My wife and I have always played a game of who could see a hawk first when we are driving down the highway. It was special to us so we thought it would be a great name for a little boy (girls too). I just happened to Google the name to see if there were others. Great name. Know that soon there will be one more.

  7. Dustin, that is really cool! In fact, it’s doubly cool because I also currently contain an unborn son (and a daughter, for that matter) who we have just been through the naming process for. Their middle names will both be Hawk.

    I hope that your Hawk has a happy and fulfilling life.
