I recently turned 29 and live in the UK – born and bred in the midlands but now living in the south. I work in financial services, and am trying to qualify as an actuary. No, I hadn't heard of it either before I started, but sufficed to say it involves a lot of studying. Thirteen exams down, two to go...
I would qualify as a geek under most people’s definitions – the science-type rather than the gaming-type. I’m always looking to learn as much as possible about this universe-thing that I wake up in every morning. I also think that I’d like to learn a language after I’m finished with the old exams.
I do enjoy travelling with my country-count now at 18. I'll be visiting the US for the first time in June (Miami & Boston). My favourite destination so far was South Africaand the most unusual was Qatar. My geography of the UK is also pretty good as I tend to spend most weekends traversing it.
Other titbits are that I’ve done two sky-dives for charity, my favourite TV show is 24 & I’m socially liberal. Sports-wise, I play football once a week, tennis every so often (usually in the summer), snooker less frequently than I used to and I go to the gym less frequently than I ought to.
Oh, and I’m on Twitter. Facebook, too, but I don’t use it nearly as much.
