My self-summary
I hate this, doesn't everyone, you want to give people a good idea of who you are but not waffle on, you want to highlight your good points but not seem arrogant, tis a tricky thing.

Short story:
27, all singing, cycling, roller derby playing, fixer of the internet, that's me.

Long Version:
I'm kind, passionate, caring, honest, reasoned, in equal parts I am relaxed about some things and intense about others, I'm loyal to a fault but it takes time for me to trust people with the things about me I keep guarded and if my trust is broken it's gone for ever. I'm open and forthright and I believe that is the best way to be. I'm also cynical about pretty much everything yet still optimistic, an odd juxtaposition methinks.

That's a fairly apt description of who I am, but I don't keep secrets about myself so ask me anything, you'll get an answer, may not be what you thought though. In light of that, I have a thing for bright pink hair, mostly cos the first lady I had a crush on was a punk girl with a bright pink mohawk, I was 4 and she was lovely.

I'm a libertarian, if you enjoy it and it doesn't hurt anyone, go for it, have fun. I'm politically minded and it's important to me. I'm a bit of a geek, films, tv, music and books, but in a good way. Moderatly tattooed, 5 small pieces of artwork, planning on a couple more. Maybe a large back piece.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, working for a broadband company, fixing stuff. I trained to work in TV production though and it is something I want to go back into doing.

I play Mens Roller Derby, I fell on my arse my first day, it hurt, a lot. I love it, I captain my team are called Chaos Engine and I go by the name Captain Malice which is a little Firefly reference and given half a chance I'll chat your ear off about this as well. I recently played at the Men's European Roller Derby Championships. It's something I really love to do, so if you'd like to skate, let me know, I'm always up for it.

Recently decided to learn how to play guitar, I sing anyway, thought I should learn how to play an accompaniment.

Other than that I'm just enjoying life as much as I can really and trying to sort my life out enough to buy a house.
I’m really good at
Stuff and junk? Obviously not good at filling this out.

Listening to people, part of who I am is I've always been good at listening to people, I used to be quite stoic as a teenager, I've gotten more talkative with age though. Fixing things, if I can find a guide how to fix it on youtube that is, I recently bought a toolkit, oh yeah, made me feel manly...

I'm good at staying calm, come the Zombie Apocalypse I have a plan, infact, I have 7 plans. I'll do fine, more than welcome to join me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea honestly, some have said my eyes, probably these days the beard I've grown, it does give me something to stroke thoughtfully.

Notice whatever you like, I am me, take me as I am or not at all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read good books, I'm currently enjoying a mix of epic fantasy and odd factual accounts, recently got into graphic novels.

Films: mostly good films, some terrible films that I utterly adore, I'm a sucker for a good 'fluff' film, something stupid with 'splosions and gunfighting.

Food: I eat pretty much anything, few veggies I'm not fond of, have zero desire to eat any organs, like kidneys or liver. Wrong.

Music: I listen to music, a huge wide range of awesomeness, currently listening to Saul Williams, Russian Circles, Rammstein, Mos Def, Alexisonfire, City and Colour, Clutch, Karnivool, And So I Watch You From Afar, Maybeshewill, God is an Astronaut and as always, 65daysofstatic. That's just my current go to bands, but Aside from Pop, modern 'Urban' music (I love OLD Rap) and Dubstep, I listen to most.

I also sing and I'm looking at learning to play guitar so I can maybe sing in front of an audience again.
The six things I could never do without
Phone, internet, Tea/Coffee, bed, books, friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and the morality of mankind. These are the things that keep me awake at night. The reasons behind things, these bother me. Also if everyone washes their armpits the same way in the shower, or do I do it differently?

I also think about my own mistakes, not due to regret, but so I learn from them and don't make the same mistakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a pub or mate's place watching films. Sometimes working :(
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Pretty much anything, I'm open, I'll answer most questions with an honest answer, some with a deliberately obtuse answer. If you want to know something, ask me, send a message with your question, I'll answer it. As you can see by this profile I don't tend to give out much information, but I do if asked.

Oh, I snore like a freight train, fair warning. :(
You should message me if
If you want to talk to someone different for an intelligent and/or random conversation. If you'd like to meet a man with a beard.

But sod it all, get to know me, most people like me, we can go from there.
