My self-summary
So I had it figured out. Then I did. Then I didn't. Then I did again. Then I didn't. Confused? Join the fucking club.

Basically I currently exist in a rolling existential crisis. Cool huh? Actually no, it's about as fun as a poke in the eye. In fact sometimes I poke myself in the eye to give myself a pleasant break.

Erm, anyway...

I do stuff and things. Some of these things include taking photos of the aforementioned stuff and then photoshopping it so I can pretend I'm good at photography. Sometimes it even works!

I drink tea. Lots of it. Yes I know it's stereotypically english but I don't care.

I live in Newark, not Nottingham, but last I checked OKC had no idea where it was. Coincidentally I wish I didn't know where it was. It's a really dull place to live after the time I spent living in Sheffield and in the Peak District. That said I've lived far worse places in the past.

I'm a natural geek, mech and tech fascinate me, and I can get slightly too enthusiastic about numbers.

I'm also a 'substance geek'. If your profile says something like 'I don't liek drug users' you should probably move along before you waste any more time here.

I think that's all I can be bothered to write right now, I should be pretending to do something more productive. Or making tea.
What I’m doing with my life
Dossing. I'm working up to getting back into work after having to drop out of my degree, it's just taking a really long time due to various life circumstances.

Gives me a nice bunch of free time to read, watch films, game, mess around on the internet. Sucks being broke though.
I’m really good at
Anything remotely connected with technology. Maths. I'm also pretty good with anything mechanical, so overall too much of my time is spent fixing other peoples PCs and cars.
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea.

The rank stench of sarcasm (suggested edit by a 'friend' >:| )

Also a lot of Dance (Trance/Progressive Trance) like Hardwick, Van Doorn, Haliwell, Sasha, A&B etc.

Food - Veggie stuffs. Been vegetarian for over 10 years. I don't try and turn other people off meat though, what they eat is none of my concern.
The six things I could never do without
Financial independence, broadband, a hope of emigration, freedom to learn new stuff, something to read, and the few people in the world who actually understand me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Society, and why I am unsettled by it. Why people aren't nicer to spiders. Why do some people seem unable to picture themselves in other peoples situations and empathise. What direction should life take and why. Why did I not drink my tea before it got cold.

That's a sample from an average half hour. Extrapolate as needed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Breathing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm clinically depressed, which makes me poor company sometimes.
You should message me if
If it seems like a good idea.
