Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please accept this is work in progress! I am an easy going,
fun-loving person, who enjoys life, and my glass is always full.
Life is for enjoying and making the most of it, capturing and
savouring all the new experiences along the way.
The pleasures in life come in many forms..love meeting new people,
having lots of fun whilst put and about, music...lots of it, the
feel, smell and words of a book, walking for miles on the beach
with the wind blowing through my hair and feeling that sense of
freedom, the taste of a good beer or wine, good witty conversation,
laughter- with others as well as at myself. Being locked in a
library surrounded by fine literature is just as much of a pleasure
as being locked in a pub after closing! Wandering the museums and
art galleries is just as satisfying as going to gigs, a trip round
many good pubs in Norwich, writing for hours on end, or sharing the
company of others; new experiences can be thrilling and be desired,
but not forgetting those from the past...nothing should ever be
taken for granted.
I can be fun-loving child as well as sensible (I'm still growing
up, really), can be quiet as well as outrageous and naughty, don't
always conform with the norm, but I'm very honest, loyal and
sincere. I may be full of beans, but also enjoy the quiet times. At
times I can be wild, dizzy and adventurous, but equally love my
bed, doing nothing, and appreciating peace and quiet.
I am a hard working professional, so I do act sensibly some of the
time. I've been on my own now for about two years, and loving it!
But of course, a special person in my life would be great.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying hard to get on with my PhD, having more time for me and to
make the most of life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Entertaining, drinking beer, sometimes being late, making a mess
when I cook, getting lost, making people feel valued, laughing with
my friends as well as at myself, buying shoes and lipsticks,
sleeping, the rest would be telling!
