Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"'A life, Jimmy. You know what that is? It's the shit that happens
while you're waiting for moments that never come."
- Lester Freamon, The Wire
I love science and science fiction, especially Doctor Who. I make
delicious food and awful puns. I'm not a fan of big loud parties,
I'd much rather go out to dinner or play a board game with a few
good friends and a few good drinks. My personal politics could best
be described as "Inarticulate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm halfway through a Masters degree studying the genetics of
inherited muscle diseases. I'm really enjoying it and feel very
lucky to work with such an awesome group of people. It's a pity I
make bugger-all as a student but you can't have everything I guess.
When I finish my degree next year I really want to get a job in
research and keep doing what I'm doing now for the rest of my life,
only for more money :P
I love to cook in my spare time. Going home, putting MasterChef on
and assembling a new dish makes me as happy as a pig in shi... uh,
mud. For me though, most of the point of cooking is sharing the
food with other people. My favourite cuisines are Indian and
anything old-school European.
Outside of work and cooking I sometimes play boardgames with my
friends. I also play a bit of ArcheAge, but I try to be disciplined
with when I log on because MMOs can take over your life very
easily. Motivating myself to clean the house is hard enough is hard
enough as it is!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh when they least expect it
Cryptic Crosswords (well sort of)
Remembering the name of the guy who was in the thing with that lady
who sings the song your friend doesn't like, you know the one...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. I'm tall, but not really "WOW that guy is tall!" tall.
And probably my accent? It's a sort of Irish-English-Aussie blend
that I inherited from my parents despite living in Perth all my
life. Also, I instinctively walk quietly so sometimes I sneak up on
people by accident. I guess in those cases the first thing they
notice is that I'm THERE AT ALL WHOA JESUS I SPILLED MY DRINK.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good book to read
At least one lie-in per week :)
Making people laugh (I think it's the meaning of life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Usually some kind of problem-solving, whether it's to do with my
job or in my own life. I also think about Doctor Who. Like, a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably in watching Netflix or about to log on to ArcheAge (don't
worry, I get out of the house other times in the week).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have chronic depression and anxiety but for the most part I
control them. Sometime's my brain's like "Isn't everything
meaningless yet also really scary?" but I'll be all "FUCK YOU I'M
TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT" and elbow it in the face.
