ass and 85% crippling self doubt. Because of this if i have viewed
your profile but not said hello, it's because i'm probably super
nervous. I am a descendant of slug heritage.
I did have a different name but I have forgotten it.
I studied English Literature in Oxford. I then stayed for 3 more
I am moving to Exeter (from Oxford) on 24 August 2015 to complete
an MA. My mother is proud. My father, who does not believe in
higher formal education, is indifferent.
The way to Exeter is via the M5. The way to God is not. There are
149 ways to God and the M5 is not one of them. I'm not looking for
God, only for myself, and that is far more complicated. God has had
a great deal written about Him; nothing has been written about

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies. Usually at the pub with other teachers de-weeking.
One Friday I went on a date with a guy from on here. We got chips
on the way to his. In the morning he left to go to the shops but he
said not to use his toilet because it was broken. But I really
