Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I haven't been on here for over a year and my goodness I really
need to rewrite this. Meanwhile, wild editing of what was in this
section before leaves me with this:
A few words that spring to mind that have been used by people I
know to describe me are: enthusiastic, kind, smiley, fun and
sharp...I'll add that I don't take myself very seriously, and I
usually find there's something to enjoy in most things, so if I
haven't tried it yet, then I'll give it a go.
I very much like engaging with others, the countryside, and
conversation that goes beyond the surface. I also like the mutual
sharing of things with people - experiences, actual things,
thoughts, feelings, opinions etc.
Sorry, I'll come back and do this better another time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a postgraduate student in Psychology - although I did
Classics as an undergraduate. They (may?) seem quite different on
the surface but they basically ask the same questions from
different perspectives. I like that.
I'm also wondering what the hell to do with my life next year.
I’m really good at

Like I said above, I usually find there's something to like in most
things, but I've tried to pick some reasonable examples.
Food: I really love to cook. And I love experimenting with
flavours. My favourite foods often seem to be based around
Mediterranean cuisines (e.g. Italian, Greek, Turkish and North
African), but I'm also a big fan of Japanese. If I haven't tried it
yet, I'd like to, please.
Music: Anything that has a good melody. I'm particularly into folky
music at the moment, and a particular favourite is Johnny Flynn.
But I also like a bit of upbeat pop (especially when driving - I
get quite excited!). I also like Agnes Obel, and I have an 80s
playlist I'm very fond of.
Movies: I especially like things that are either fun or
thought-provoking or both. Some classics you can't beat also
include Lord of the Rings, Gladiator and Disney. I'm not too into
(especially slashy) horror films as they tend to leave me a
Books: e.g. The Other Hand, Brave New World, Wuthering Heights,
Pompeii, Imperium - don't really know why I've picked those but why
TV: I like comedy and drama the best. Off the top of my head, a
selection are Peep show, the Detectorists, HIGNFY, Arrested
Development, Mitchell and Webb, Homeland, Sherlock, The Musketeers
and Grantchester. Also Pointless, Escape to the Country and
occasionally Don't tell the Bride.
The six things I could never do without

it like that before'.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people do the things they do.
Also, (and sometimes to address the above question), Roman and
Greek literature, philosophy, psychology and physics.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As a student, weekends aren't particularly differentiated from the
rest of the week, but I know what you mean. Probably with friends,
either in or out. If out, then I'm always a big fan of the pub, and
with reflection I think this is because the pub is somewhere I only
seem to go with really interesting people. Wherever we are, we'll
probably be having a conversation that ranges from whether
