Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Temporary new self summary. impassioned speech/rant time. Skip this
if you're sick of these.
Look, I know a lot of you have heard about the marriage equality
referendum, and you know in my circle of friends a lot of you will
have made up your mind by now. For now, I just want to put LGBT
equality out of your minds, even though it's important.
Right now, my hands are trembling as I type this not because I feel
like my sexuality is being attacked, or the sexuality of my friends
are being attacked, or my future as a father or my future as a
husband. Right now, I feel like my family's being attacked.
It's not a secret to many of you I lost my father when I was just a
teenager, and my mother since then has done nothing less than an
outstanding job carrying the burden that he left behind, making
sure both me and my sister made it in Ireland and seeing us through
to our college degrees. The thing is, for some people that's not
I'm sick, and tired, and hurt from seeing all of these "A child can
only be raised by a mother and father" shit right now. I know
friends and people who feel exactly as hurt. There are so many
people who I know who lost a parent, through divorce, through
absence, and sometimes tragically through death. I'm sick of being
told my family's not good enough. I'm sick of being told that our
family's not ideal or not what God intended. Because I wouldn't
trade my mother or siblings for the whole world.
So if you're not planning to vote yes, please, just do it for me.
Just consider it a personal favor to me. I could be your friend, or
a complete stranger. But I want a world where my family, when I
have one, won't be regulated by the closed minded, no matter who I
marry or whose children I have. I don't want my children to grow up
constantly thinking about whether we're "Normal" or not. I really,
truly, hope that you understand this and understand why I'm voting
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a full-time art student who's looking at becoming a... Thing of
sorts. I don't know what I want at all ^^"
It's a bit of a stereotype to be the peniless artist honestly, but
I don't think I'll ever need money beyond paying for my own rent,
and maybe a pet cat or two some day. The only thing you can realy
spend money on are often things that are transitory, and never
bring much happiness in the long run.
I almost never buy clothes outside of charity shops, aside from
socks and stuff. This is partly to do with the "peniless" image
with which I see myself, but also to do with the way textiles are
sourced. Believe me, it's pretty merciless.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
You could say I like to try a lot of things, but Ive not really
mastered anything. I always work at trying to improve my skills at
games like chess and league of legends. Lately I've discovered that
even though I enjoy these games, I lack the foresight and polish to
be great at them. Kind of unfortunate, isn't it?
I love to debate and constantly try to pick arguments with anybody
that will listen, just for the sheer joy of the clash. Though
ironically, often I can lack the confidence to stand by my
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a pretty specific way in which I prefer to dress, suits,
ties, blazers, waistcoats. I realise it's a little anachronistic,
but I like the feeling of standing out slightly, and I just can't
think of clothes that would flatter me more.
They're probably thinking "Oh god will he STOP with the disjointed
Oh and the hair, I've been growing it for some years now, and for a
guy it's gotten pretty long.

ahead and ask me, it'll be fun ^^.
All the lists of stuff in these boxes are pretty boring to read
through. Just know generaly I spend most of my time gaming over
movies and books, and I mostly read news sites.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm really crazy when it comes to philosophy and trying to gather
my thoughts. I can spend hours reflecting on what it means to be
creative, or what it means to be a good leader. I love talking to
people about it too. I love to write, I spend ages coming up with
half-concocted ideas for films or comics or even video games in
design. I have notebooks full of trailing mind-maps and sketches of
these ideas too, just in case one of them is worth revisiting. I'd
love to meet someone who loves to create stuff like that too ^^
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oh, you really don't want to hear something this lame ~ xD
I tend to party in short bursts. At the start of this year I went
to a party wearing shorts and a sleevless vest in the middle of
autumn, with nothing but a bottle of neat rum, proclaiming myself
to be "Broseidon - God of the Brocean". Then for the rest of the
year I've barely done anything at all. Weird, right?
Most of my friends would say I'm pretty reserved when it comes to
parties, since I don't go to them that often and frequently don't
especially enjoy them. Gradually I've been retreating more and more
into my shell lately though. It's comfortable inside the shell.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess I could admit the fact I still somehow haven't had an
official, long term job, even part time. I've worked on and off for
a few days here and there, but I'm not sure that really counts. It
does result in me being broke for a lot of the time, but then again
I barely spend money on anything anyway

You are feeling up for a decent conversation ^^ To be honest when
I'm on this site I tend to message people on the off chance they'll
