In one of those newspaper ads from ye olde days, I'd be "27 swf, gsoh, caring, looking 4 same"
These days, I get paragraph after paragraph to describe myself (and even extra percentage points by our OkC masters - woot!) but, tbh, it probably won't tell you much more than the 7 word sentence above.
I've just turned 27 and beginning to reconcile myself to the fact that 30 will actually happen after all. Of course, 30s is the new 20s (dahhhhhling), so I'm looking forward to another quality decade with more travelling and shoe-buying to look forward to.
I enjoy being out, am never happier than when I'm in the thick of it all and have a very low tolerance for boredom. I like to have a plan and know where I'm going, which is a real pain because, right now, I don't have either.
I care deeply for my family and friends and worry a lot for them, which is probably entirely unnecessary but there you go. I spend a lot of time thinking. When I was younger, I could never see how that could be a bad thing. As I've become older, I've begun to see that the endless theorising hasn't led to all that much wisdom.
However, in the surprising event of the thinking producing a clear answer, I like to do something as soon as possible. I am a woman of action (said with a triumphant brass band flourish and a mental image of me in a superhero outfit). This has led to some pretty big changes in my life; moving overseas to the UK being one of them.
I am quirky, foolish, and a little bit hot
Good question. Sometimes I worry I've done it all wrong and won't figure out in time how to be sustainably happy without having to adopt some quasi-monastic lifestyle, that involves shaving my head, ringing bells and adopting a tediously vegan diet. Most of the time, though, I'm pretty content and figure that, so long as I have a ready supply of dark chocolate, everything will be ok.
To look into my eyes is to feel a divine warmth and heaven all around, where time stands still and the moment becomes abound.
So I've been told, anyway. And as for my lips, well...
Movies: Again, sci-fi and fantasy rate quite highly (Terminator, Predator, Aliens, Stardust, Princess Bride) but I enjoy almost all the genres (except horror). I have a soft spot for romcoms (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Only You, Amelie, Wedding Singer) and enjoy historical dramas (Elizabeth, Master & Commander).
Music: I live for music (and dancing). Probably my most enduring love is old 50's and 60's music - classic, bluesy pop songs that I come back to again and again. Other than that, favourite bands include Wilco, White Stripes, Led Zep, Wu-Tang Clan, Kings of Leon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck and Amy Winehouse.
Food: Everything, unless it has coriander leaves in it.
THINGS I HAVE DONE ON FRIDAY NIGHTS
- Have a drink
- Eat food
- Go to the gym (to be fair, that was a fairly poor Friday night all round)
- Read a book
- Watch ancient re-runs of Friends, Scrubs and Pimp My Ride
- Go to a movie with mates
- See my cousin's band play
- Make out (I much prefer that type of Friday night)
- Go to a seminar at the Wellcome Trust
- Go to a house party in Chelsea and realise I'm completely surrounded by gay men, which resulted in very high quality chats about shoes and American southern accents but very poor quality chats about what a sexy babe I am and would I like to go on a date
