Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As everybody always says its hard to write these things. I'm not
really sure what sort of things I should write about myself so this
might be a bit disjointed and a little bit random...
I'm a geeky person. I like to think the good kind. I'm not the sort
that will bore people to tears talking about computers or other
stuff - I am one of the good ones who is able to talk about
computers, sci fi, fantasy computer games, etc. if you want but is
equally able to chip in on most subjects. I manage to surprise
people at work from time to time by even being able to contribute
on sports conversations even though I'm not into sports
particularly at all.
I'm not much of a drinker/clubber sort. Mainly because I find
drinking too much gets very expensive and although I like clubbing
from time to time I prefer to actually be able to talk properly
when socialising. An evening out is much more likely to be in a pub
than in a club and more likely to be round somebody's house with
DVDs than in a pub.
I like to think I am quite open minded - there is very little that
I find objectionable in day to day life. I am told that I am funny
(and I think they are right but its all subjective so I make no
promises) and sarcastic (this is definitely true).
I balance my shyness with my extroversion I think - I love meeting
new people but I am always nervous about it and very bad though
once I get to vaguely know somebody I usually open up - and it
doesn't take much. :)
Last thing of note about me is that I love to travel. Though I
don't get much opportunity. I spent a few months travelling around
china, and other bits of south east Asia a couple of years ago and
it was amazing some of the stuff there and I really want to see
more awesome parts of the world. I've been to a few places since
but generally lack travelling partners so if you have any urge for
company travelling then let me know. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working as a computer programmer for a startup selling a
microblogging platform (if such a term means anything). And in the
off time trying to decide what exotic countries might be fun to
visit. I've been to a fair few round south east asia and have done
a few others in SE europe and other places. New places are
I've also decided that I want to learn more strange and interesting
skills. Not necessarily to a high level but just to have a go. So
I've done a couple of hours course on Archery (and would consider
doing more), scuba diving (qualified to PADI Master Scuba Diver
level), practiced lockpicking (its very hard). I'm wanting to
dothings like parachuting (probably next on the list), canoeing,
shooting, horse riding, etc. If you have any suggestions then I'm
happy to hear them. ;-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using computers, making people laugh, giving people lifts to
places, being a friend (I think anyway) and hopefully a lot more.
It'd be embarrassing if that was all I was good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Long hair I expect. I've not had it cut short in ages - mainly
because I always hated what my hair looked like when it was short
(back in school). I would imagine that is probably the most
distinctive thing about me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6) My Glasses (or contact lenses) - blind as a bat otherwise
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of things. What people think, how the world works, what I'm
doing later, what I'm doing at the weekend, I don't know. I just
spend a lot of time thinking. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably with friends somewhere. pub, videos, it varies. Or maybe
just at home watching TV, playing games, or something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll admit a lot of private things but not on the internet. How
about that I dropped out of university for a couple of terms.
