My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A typical artist/admin type wanting to do more of the former and less of the latter. Though arranging exhibitions and the like does actually involve lots of admin in itself, just not admin I get paid for. Currently moonlighting as a pattern designer which will hopefully reap large rewards. I'm not all about the money at all but it would certainly be nice.

My hobbies include cycling about town, reading, cinema, second hand clothes, bric a brac, looking about interesting buildings (they are everywhere), going to parks, jumpers, and a bit of general introspection.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like doing stuff and getting stuff done and seeing friends in between. I'm not usually a moper who's at a loss for activities, my schedule is full of tasks and ideas, even if it is just doing the laundry or reading books. Saying that though I do eventually lapse into sleep. And I love a good TV series.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bigging myself up but not always meaning it, then wondering if people actually think I mean it.

Talking endlessly.

Typing endlessly.

Until the end that is.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only really know what I've been told in regards to this so probably my clothes and my hair, I'm told I have quite a histrionic face too, lots of expressions, also I apparently have a very relaxing voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Some of the authors I've read are Flannery O'Connor, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, William Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, Evelyn Waugh, John Fante, Natalie Sarraute, Philip K Dick, Mervyn Peake, HG Wells, Albert Camus and lots of others. I've probably listed the ones that make me sound the most intelligent but I've read a lot of rubbish books too, don't worry, I'm not one of those alienating intellectual types, I also like graphic novels or as I like to call them, clever comics.

I'm into all sorts of films from art house to mainstream, I'm not too keen on action films as action sequences send me to sleep a bit, unless you feel invested in the characters, then they can work, like Indiana Jones. Otherwise I tend to feel it to be a lot of objects falling over speeding up and slowing down into one another with people jumping from one to another with no defined purpose, a little bit like real life then.

My musical tastes are fairly varied though I do have quite a heavy love of post punk, eighties pop and dark wave. Love electronica best though also partial to almost all genres of music as long as it's done well. Some musicians I'm into are: Abba, Nick Cave, Fad Gadget, Beck, ELO, Kraftwerk, White Noise, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Raymond Scott, Bright Eyes, Pulp, Scott Walker, Bobby Conn, Caberet Voltaire and of course many many others, most things in fact, as long as they are good.

I'm keen on quite a few tv series even though I don't watch a lot of tv during the week I tend to watch them on box sets whilst on a cross trainer. Bit weird maybe? Combining television and exercise do make both activities a lot more interesting. At the moment I'm working my way through Six Feet Under which is a real revelation as I didn't watch it whilst it was on but it just keeps getting better and better. I also love a bit of mind bending, experimental and imaginative science fiction, like Blake's 7, Doctor Who, Lexx, The X Files, Millenium and all that Joss Whedon stuff. I'm quite geeky but I balance all that out with more well regarded things like Dennis Potter or David Lynch, Brideshead Revisited, I Claudius, The Wire, Treme, Breaking Bad, Dexter and many others.

In summary it really does seem I like everything that I think is good. I'm quite open minded though and know that taste is entirely subjective and even though I feel I'm bang on into the right things it doesn't mean everyone should share my tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Hope.
2. Motivation.
3. Buying interesting but inexpensive clothing.
4. Kind creatures - especially my cat Claude.
5. Creating nice bits of artwork or interesting writing.
6. My lovely friends who are actually incredible and who I probably don't spend quite as much time with as I should.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about thinking, and about all of this swirling life. There's no answers though, well there are but they aren't very good, so it's often more fun to just keep asking questions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either staying in and working on art or going out and working on not working on art.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That despite finding it very easy to socialise and chat to someone for hours on end I'm actually quite introverted and enjoy time to myself as well. I think on these internet dating profiles people tend to sell the positive aspects of themselves without mentioning the negative ones. This is one of my negative qualities. Also I'm far too organised cerebrally but not at all organised spacially.
