I joke around, mess with friends, play computer games, draw, play ukulele and run a science blog. Next to my other gazillion hobbies, I am quite adept at entertaining myself.
I very recently got my first job in Utrecht, so I moved here from Groningen. Exciting! Now I'm slowly discovering the city and its people :)
This also means I have a vast array of (semi) useless skills. ("Look ma! I can shuffle a deck of cards in a fancy way!")
There are just too many fun things to do out there and too little time to learn all of them or just learn all of them well.
The things I stick with most though, are drawing, writing, photography and playing my ukulele (badly).
People say I always look on the bright side of life, apparently to such an extent that some of my friends are betting on when I will snap and cry for 6 months straight ("No-one can be that happy!")
Movies: That's a hard one. I watch movies religiously. It's hard to compare genres. But if I have to name, say, three; Magnolia, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, Lost in Translation.
TV shows: Dr Who, Horizon, The Walking Dead, Person of Interest, Agents of Shield, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Community
Instead of naming all the music that I love, here's a link to my last.fm page :) www.last.fm/user/amhil
Food:I like almost anything, except, maybe, mussels and eggplants.
Games Half-life 2, L4D(2), Portal(2), Discworld MUD, Serious Sam, Batman: Arkham Asylum/City, Minecraft, Fistful of Frags, Terraria, Starbound, FTL, Don't Starve, Guns of Icarus, DayZ, Zomboid
-Ample time to spend on my creative outbursts
-Games (Valve, how I love thee, let me count the ways.)
Ignoring those things, I spend a lot of time thinking about stories. Random imaginary movie scenes and story plot lines. Sometimes I write them down, usually I don't. I get inspiration for these from the oddest places and on the least opportune moments. I just drift off in my thoughts.
DON'T MESSAGE ME IF: You're homophobic, racist or sexist.
I'm pro abortion, euthanasia, gay marriage, and so on. If these things bother you, or your opinion differs significantly on these important social issues, messaging me probably won't result in a reply.
I unfortunately had to put up this disclaimer because plenty of people on here obviously clash with me on these issues. They are very important to me, so with this warning I'm hoping that no one is wasting their time...
