Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Even though the phrase 'gentle giant' makes me gag, it seems like
an apt way to describe me.
I rarely get angry with people, especially people I'm not close to.
Even in situations where being angry would be natural, or
acceptable way to react, I still remain fairly placid. I get
annoyed of course, but I don't lose my temper.
I just don't seem to have it in me to become loud and aggressive
with people. The only people I ever do get angry with are the
people I'm close to, because I really do care what they
When I'm with people I don't know, I'm usually quiet and
respectful. After I come to know a person better, I'll probably
start to make jokes about sensitive topics. I might say things
which seem offensive or mean, but never without trying to make
I love talking to people about their opinions, and asking them what
they think about just about everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a student from Scotland, studying here on Erasmus. I'm studying
Civil Engineering, although I'm not that interested in it as a
subject- I'm more interested in the travel opportunities that come
with it, which is what brought me to Czech Republic in the first
After my year on exchange here is completed, I will be going back
to the UK for a year to complete my Masters degree, which will take
me one year. However, because I've fallen in love with Prague I'm
considering postponing my return and spend a year working instead.
Preferably within the construction industry, but giving tours or
language tuition instead if it comes down to it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a certain knack for reaching high shelves, making humorous
comments about works of art, and doing the silly walk from Monty
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very tall- 201 cm, or 6 feet and 7 inches.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favourite book is either 'Catcher in the Rye' by JD Salinger, or
'Nineteen Eighty-Four' by George Orwell. My favourite film is
'Persepolis', an animated adaption of a French-Persian comic book.
I don't watch much television series but I love British comedy and
my favourite is a series called Brass Eye. As for music I like a
lot of different things, my current infatuation is Jazz music. And
I'll try just about anything food wise but if I had to pick an
absolute favourite, it'd be Indian food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet access- I spend far more time on the computer than could
possibly be considered healthy.
Good food- I love food. Whether it's cooking at home or going out
to a restaurant, I absolutely adore eating; especially with good
Laughter- once I know how to make a person laugh, I keep at
Beautiful places- if I'm in a beautiful or interesting place, I can
just go out and walk for hours. I spent a few days in Paris in
Summer and just walked and walked, taking everything in. I did the
same thing when I came to Prague, until the weather got cold.
Good beer- nothing quite like sitting down to a lovely pint or two
at the end of a long week.
Conversation- around people I don't know that well I can sometimes
be quiet, but with people I know I can keep a conversation going
for hours, whether its about politics or what the other person has
been up to lately.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Feminism, of all things.
It wasn't something I gave much consideration to or had any strong
opinions about until a girl I used to know started talking to me
about it; and since then I've become quite involved- although not
as an activist, at least not yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As of late, I'm choked up with exams and coursework
Before that unfortunate turn of events, I was usually going out for
dinner or drinks with my friends or flat mates. If I'm not doing
that, then I'll be chatting to people online.
Once this period of exams are finished with, I am going to start
doing more interesting things on my weekends: trips to neighboring
cities, attending any interesting events that might be going on in
I'm also going to start swimming or going to the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing about myself which I don't attempt to hide
from anyone is that I suffer from attention deficit disorder, and
take medication for it.
