Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Adam. The first man? Possibly, sometimes I do feel pretty
I'm weird, I won't lie. I like being weird. It makes life a lot
more interesting. I find the world both incredibly beautiful and
interesting but also frustrating. I'm not cool, bar a short period
of time in 2004, I've never been cool, that's fine I've never
wanted to be cool.
I studied Film and Journalism, Philosophy and Politics during 6
years of uni. I can understand quantum physics and recite whole
poems off the top of my head and also know ridiculously random
factoids. Like did you know there are massive rain clouds in
I'm an odd mix of idealistic and cynical (I wholeheartedly believe
that if your not cynical your not paying close enough attention).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Growing a beard, what that's not a long term goal?
I work in fundraising management for an environmental charity. It's
very rewarding and not that poorly paid. I love feeling like I've
made a difference and would never want to work in a corporate
In the long term I'd like to be a writer (novels, tv, films,
graphic novels I'm not fussy as long as it's creative) but will
probably always have another job to pay the bills. I write reviews
for a horror website on the side at the moment. Which is a fun
I also write music, sing and play guitar and have been in bands of
varying quality and style since my early teens. I still write
although I no longer have a band. I am toying with the idea of
doing some acoustic gigs for my own entertainment rather than
because I have delusions of being Jeff Buckley (although that would
be nice, you know apart from the dead dad and drowning bits).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, remembering things, hugs, what the french call "espirit
escalier" or the "spirit of the stairway" which means thinking of
the right thing to say five minutes too late, finding the least
appropriate joke to make in a given situation, sarcasm, suggesting
bands you've never heard of to listen to, books you've never heard
of to read and films you've never heard of to watch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably how tall I am, then I would imagine it'd be my curly hair.
Now that I'm wearing glasses again the most common comment seems to
be "You look like Superman" which is of course wrong, if anything I
would look like Clark Kent, not that I think I do but lets be

Music, I like a bit of everything but tend more towards the

I love food and cooking mostly italian, thai, chinese and indian. I
also enjoy anything sweet and ideally brightly coloured and have
recently discovered that Dime Bar Milkshakes might be the greatest
invention in human history.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A guitar, music, films, books, love and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, as I mentioned I studied philosophy so I'm pretty much always
thinking about something, mostly deep intellectual things but
sometimes it's just about ewoks ( I mean do they have ewok schools
and hospitals up in those trees?). I have a constant inner
monologue (it's a bit like an episode of Scrubs only less zany and
far more damaging to my self esteem)
On a typical Friday night I am
