Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

quite open. I’m really interested in other people, and love to
listen to others talk about the things they’re passionate
I love to travel. I grew up in South-East Asia, and enjoy
travelling to new cities and other countries (though haven’t done
this in a while), or even just new parts of town. I especially love
visiting second-hand bookstores and snapping up rare or unusual
books. I love reading, and am always in the middle of some book or

* Getting into creative writing as a side job/profession
* Being a Volunteer Firefighter during the hot parts of the
* Eating healthy and keeping fit
* Trying to get out more - live music, out-of-town trips,
reconnecting with old friends and making new ones
* Continuing to read every single novel/non-fiction book that looks
I’m trying to take a bit more control of my life, while still being
easy-going and relaxed. I want to open myself up to new
opportunities and experiences, and be ready to take them once
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. Reading. Making terrible jokes/puns. Making logical and
sensible budgets, and gradually watching them deteriorate as the
week goes on. Having in-depth discussions about movies and books
and the news, and how they all relate to cultural/political stuff.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I honestly have no idea... if I’m in a grumpy mood, it’s probably

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If it’s been a busy week, I’m usually content with a good meal, a
few drinks and reading or watching a TV show. If I have the energy,

something with friends – dinner, movies, drinks, etc.
