Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love waking up in a warm bed with nothing to do that day but go
out and walk. I love going to the gym and feeling drained and sore
in the best way. I love coming up with ridiculous plans for the
future. I love the feel and smell of new books.
I love learning about history, art and politics. I especially love
talking old myths and am looking into anthropology. I love just
walking around an old city with no destination just to appreciate
what the architecture is like. I also think that practical ethics
is just as, if not more, important than philosophy.
I love meeting up with friends and I especially love going to
chinese resturants and never quite knowing what I ordered. I love a
drink and am always up for going out to the pub for a quick half at
the very least.
Other than that? I am just generally trying to carve out a place
for myself in the world whilst being a good person. It's sometimes
a bit hard, but it's always a good laugh once it's done.
Hopefully will see you around.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment I am working on board the Cutty Sark. I work as a
Visitor Assistant and that generally means a lot of admissions,
retail and learning a load about the ship I work on. It's a great
job, but I am enjoying the stuff I do on board ship most of
Other than that? Well I have only just moved to London, so I am
doing as much exploring as I can on my days off and evening, and
since moving out I am keen to look into gym going and having a
decent number of nights out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning. I love knowledge and I really enjoy being able to take in
different sources of information and then use them and discuss
them. I just love getting to grips with new knowledge and finding
new stuff out about things I think I know.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My accent. I have a rather posh accent for no apparent reason. My
family isn't posh and none of them sound in the least bit like me,
but for some odd reason I sound like I have stepped off a BBC radio
broadcast from the 1950's.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Well my books are a bit on the nerdy side. Terry Pratchett, Neil
Gaiman you know, the usual. I do like trying to read some of the
classics though, if only to be able to talk about them
Movies? I am trying to find some of the classical films and watch
those too, its always interesting to see where the modern ideas
about film have come from. That said? I don't think anyone ever
turns down the option of watching a scary movie or laughing at a
My music tends to be a bit scattershot, one of my favorite bands is
probably Eels if only because of the sheer difference in moods that
the songs go through, alongside that I am trying to widen what I
listen to, getting stuck on just one things always seems a bit of a
Food tends to be anything healthy that can be made fast, so a lot
of oriental stuff. I've got a soft spot for oriental stuff from
stalls at Greenwich market, it might not be the best but damn is it
fast and satisfying
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think that things like family/friends etc don't really count
here, because who the hell lives without human companionship?
A nice hot shower every morning
A new beer every week.
My swimming gear
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics (especially anything to do with the interaction of Media
and politics), a bit of philosophy and ethics, and things I need to
be getting on with.
The first two are generally more important in a general sense, but
you've got to leave some time to think about what you need to get
done today. Otherwise you just end up having some brilliant theory
on politics but you look like you've been dragged backwards through
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing a bit and preparing for work. I generally have to work
weekends, so I take my nights out (big nights out anyway) at any
time when I have a couple of days off.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once got a job by reciting a poem at the interview.
