My self-summary
Idea for an icebreaker - tell me where my username is from. :D

I love to laugh; if you lack a sense of humour, we won't get on. ISFJ personality, with a considerable amount of ISTJ too. Very straight and honest with my opinions - but not insensitive.

I play a couple of instruments, mainly piano, and I also sing. I adore animals - particularly dogs.

I'm not very girly. Minimal make-up, love my colourful jeans, and you'll never catch me in heels.

I like people that are very 'what you see is what you get', sensitive, and fairly laid back. I'm a bit more intense/passionate than laid back, so it's the yin to my yang or whatever. Balances out nicely.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying to be an accountant (I can sense you rolling your eyes), and working as a freelance proofreader and editor for a bit of extra cash. I promise I'm not really anal about grammar, though. Only when I'm getting paid to be. ;)

Dream career would be professional musician or a TV writer.

I'm learning French in my spare time, and I just joined an acapella singing group.

I like to game, but not hardcore.
I’m really good at
Playing music and writing. Singing? Procrastinating (original, I know). It's bad though, sometimes I'll put something off for so long that I'll literally never do it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Might as well be honest, I'm the kind of person that people don't notice at first. I blend into the background, particularly in a group. That isn't ME though, so don't be put off. You just need to put a bit of effort in to get to know me. I reckon it's worth it. :)

(I'd prefer to chat on here for at least a few weeks before considering meeting up. I've met a few people from here before though, so it's not something I avoid! I just like to get a bit of a connection going first.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Films... Whatever takes my fancy, but I do have a huge soft spot for anything Disney/Pixar, and decent romcoms. Also pretty much every Jim Carrey film.

I love TV, particularly drama and comedy. A few examples: Orange Is The New Black, Breaking Bad, Parks and Recreation, Community, Game of Thrones, The Office (UK and US), The Inbetweeners, Skins, Life on Mars, The Great British Bake Off, Father Ted, Miranda, Doctor Who (RTD era), Gogglebox ... and many others that are less good and I don't want to admit on here. ;) Including lots of game/quiz shows.

Also anything from people like Ricky Gervais, Michael McIntyre, Charlie Brooker, Peter Kay, Graham Norton. Adore Ant & Dec, and I'm also quite into YouTubers.

Music wise, a few off the top of my head: Michael Buble, Queen, Caro Emerald, Eliza Doolittle, The Beatles, Robbie Williams, The Fratellis, The Secret Sisters, Lily Allen, McFly (not ashamed!), anything musical theatre, anything Disney (the animated films). Some classical when I'm in the mood.

Harry Potter is my go to book series. I also love comedy authors such as Nick Hornby and John O'Farrell, decent romances, action/adventure. I loved 'Me Before You' recently.

Food? I'm pescetarian (veggie but occasionally eat fish). After eating quite unhealthily for a few years, I turned it around in 2015, started smoothie-ing it up and lost a lot of weight. \o/
The six things I could never do without
Music, comedy, family, friends, television/films, dogs.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not one for clubs, I'd prefer to stay in and watch a film/play a classic board game (high five for Monopoly!), or go to the pub. I don't drink much but that doesn't make me a bore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit many private things. But get to know me first.
You should message me if
You have a good sense of humour, and we at least have something in common! But don't send me a 'hi hows u' mini message - put a bit of effort in, please and thank you.
