Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Santhosh and it means happiness in sanscrit. Thus I try
to have the cheerful disposition as often as possible. A masters
grad from Adelaide University. I love playing with gadgets, fixing
random things, making a costume, playing board games, being
sociable (I am becoming alot better at picking conversations...
Probably because I teach for a living)
I love to travel, and when i mean travel i do not like putting up
at a fancy hotel, or going on massive tours! I like backpacking and
hitching or couch surfing and walking the streets, the sense of
ADVENTURE and that you're exploring the sights and sounds of the
country by yourself is what i like the most.
I love to cook. I have been cooking for years at home. Not so much
baking though but i could learn it. I love to try any sort of food
and only hate ONE thing and that is beetroot. During the 8 years of
living in Adelaide, I worked at a Japanese sushi restaurant (Sushi
Train) as a part time chef. So I am pretty confident in holding a
blade and know my seafood ;)
A teacher a learner, a gentleman, and a master of sarcastic wit...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After my Masters in Education, I was cought in a love triangle with
my 3 favourite fields. Either Linguistics, Geology or even
Education. A weird combo? I did a double degree in Science and
Teaching with a major in Geology and a second major in Linguistics.
(yes I am such the nerd....).
I was also an SSO (Student Services Officer) at Adelaide High. A
research assistant for the school of applied linguistics for
Adelaide University. Kendo Junior instructor, (aiming for my fifth
Dan.... Looking to get it this July! YOSHA!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
MAKING IMPRESSIONS of people!
I like playing the piano. Although i am not a Mozart i love
practicing it. I recently bought a Yamaha P-105! So i don't have to
sneak into the music faculty anymore...
Learning a language. I can speak 5 languages relatively fluently.
(useful when I get lost traveling)
Making someone laugh, (bad jokes galore; no hate)
Photography. I love my Canon 5D MkII and 70-200 glass F2.8 lense :)
also my 200 prime.
Making a costume
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a spitting image of Rajesh Koothrapali from the Big Bang
I apparently have really long eyelashes. I find it REALY hard to
hold a straight face..... xD
I am often so captivated with reading a book or watching a movie
that I tend to act out the monologue (AND I DO THIS WITH PASSION).

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

novel! Egalitarianism (go ahead...ask yourself, are you really fair
to everyone and what does it mean to be fair)
Anything random... I don't have anything else that Prominently
comes into mind..........on that note whats for dinner?
Where do I go next?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not really the clubbing kind of person, im either at home with a
book, playing a game, watching a movie, karaoke-ing, playing a
board game with housemates, talking to friends. (socialising the
unorthodox way over a beer or in my case a glass or two of single
malt scotch). I do like bars though.
I did alot of band photography with my good mate Chris. But now
that I'm back im usually up for anything other then a club. A bar
anytime not a club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dancing like a maniac to random song and singing along to it (i may
or may not know ALL the words to the song and look like a complete
fool doing it but HEY! I admit it).
ok... when i am deep in thought i tend to argue with myself verbaly
and i never actually realise it....
I am abit of a Disney fan.... To the point I know alot of the songs
by heart... So chances are you will hear me humm something or...
Even sing it out loud (apologies in advance >_>)
