Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Probably the most important thing first: in 2010, I got an official
Asperger's Syndrome diagnosis. I am not a very social person, and I
find meeting new people a bit scary.
Once I meet someone, and start talking about things I am interested
in, I am quite talkative.
I love science, and learning about the world around us, which is
why I did a science degree.
I am also interested in the amazing things us humans make, and in
Nerdy/geeky stuff in general is pretty cool.
As my username suggests, I play the tuba. I have been playing brass
instruments since I was 10. The music I listen to is usually music
I have played, or I hope to play some day.
I have a large LEGO collection. I also play a bit of minecraft
(which is a lot like LEGO, except it is a lot cheaper, and you
don't have to put it away when you are finished!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have graduated from uni with a BSc in Physics, but I haven't
found a relevant job yet. At the moment, I am employed as a
recycling sorter. It is horribly boring, but as a permanent, I now
get payed a bit more than as a temp, which is nice.
My main hobbies are music, LEGO, and skyscrapers.
I currently play in four orchestras, two brass bands, and a concert
I am currently in the process of building stuff for this year's
Lego show. Procrastination socks.
I am also working on updating some skyscraper maps. It is
surprising how much can change in two years!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music. I love paying the tuba, and I am pretty good at it.
Procrastination. It's almost as if the internet was designed to
Logic, I think rather logically (Part of being autistic I think),
which is a good thing most of the time, especially for science
related things, but not so great in social situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a beard and long hair tied back.
I am very quiet, except when talking about something I like, then I
won't shut up!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like reading science fiction and non fiction science books,
although I haven't read much recently. I have started reading the
Song of Ice and Fire books, but haven't got too far yet.
I like science fiction movies, and science documentaries. The last
movie I saw in a movie theatre was Avengers 2.
I like The Last Airbender, and Korra. Also Doctor Who. I have
started watching Star Wars : Clone Wars, which is pretty good so
I listen to orchestral music, and not much else. I particularly
like Romantic composers like Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, and Dvorak. The
radio station at work is The Sound, which plays rock music, which
isn't too bad. I rather like Queen.
I like most foods. I don't like spicy food though. Or onion. Why do
some people put raw onion in sandwiches?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-stuff to keep me alive (air, water, and food)
-somewhere quiet to go if I am not feeling very social.
-knowing how something works
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things i should be doing, but never seem to get round to
Figuring out what the purpose of my life should be. Things were
going fine up until Mother Nature decided to totally mess
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sitting at my computer thinking of something interesting to
Playing the Tuba in a brass band every second week.
