Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow, I hate writing about myself, probably why I have left this
blank for so long, I may also have an issue with procrastination.
I'm 29, a mature student at Oxford Brookes doing my second BSc in
Occupational Therapy this time, my first was at Reading in
Philosophy and Politics. I spend a lot of time reading, listening
to music, walking and cycling. I'm fairly new to Oxford and am
always up to doing new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am at Oxford Brookes doing a BSc in Occupational Therapy, I spend
a lot of time reading, wandering the streets looking at
architecture and arguing with radio 4
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking things apart out of curiosity (Not always so good at getting
them back together). Being a beer snob. Getting lost and not being
bothered, I mean who wants to get somewhere when you can explore.
Trying to understand fundamental principles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I spend a lot of time thinking about things,
everything, this can distract me from the real world so they
probably notice that I have just fallen over a chair or kerb I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read constantly, the hard part about being a student again is I
didn't have space to bring all my books (I have a thing about
books) and I have to restrict how many I buy. I am normally
surrounded by tottering half read piles. This is a good thing! I
tend to concentrate on ethics, economics, and knowledge. I read
trashy novels every so often but only to distract myself whilst I
think over a concept.
Music wise I listen to almost everything but am especially fond of
early jazz, blues and folk, for some reason most of my records seem
to be 70s/80s prog rock and ska, not that this is a bad
Films are difficult, it can take me ages to find things I want to
watch but my tastes are very varied, I love early Hitchcook,
actually I love a lot of earlier black and white films, the camera
dosent change angles every .5 seconds and give me a headache, its
all about dialogue and plot not special effects. Long term
favourites include Watershipdown (how can you not love bunnies),
Ghost World, Shawshank Redemption and Red Dawn (Along with a lot of
other 80s action films, so silly they are good)
Food, hmmm. I really like cooking, I'm good at it as well but tend
towards one or two pot dishes, so risottos, casseroles and that
sort of thing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My books, good beer, tea, coffee, music, my friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything, bring up a topic and I will think about it, try to get
back to base principles and then get stroppy about any underlying
principles I am not sure about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on time and money being a student. Not clubbing thats
for sure, but in a good pub with friends drinking beer, discussing
the world and listening to live blues sounds about right. If not
then reading or sitting in a living room with the same friends
listening to the music on CD.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

This is a very public space to admit a private thing.
