I've filled out all the other parts so I guess I have to tackle this one now. Who am I? Someone who's still trying to find the answer to that question, that's who. But I've come a long way, and I'm pretty happy with who I am. To be continued..
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a driver while trying to finish my degree in cognitive science. Trying to figure out why I'm still trying to finish that stupid degree long after I've lost interest in it. Trying to figure out what I really want to do with my life and how to get there.
Also, trying to have fun while doing all those other things!
I’m really good at
I'm really caring, I've been told that all my life. Actually, sometimes I can't stop caring even when it's bad for me - I think that's why I'm a bit careful with letting people in. You should be too, I'm hard to get rid of ;) I guess loyal would be another way of putting it.
Girls seem to like my hands a lot..I'll just leave it at that.
I'm a good problem solver, I tend to think outside the box. Actually, I tend to ignore the box. Or sit on it.
Apparently I'm good with people, it's probably part personality, part experience. Mostly it's being interested in seeing their point of view, if you do is not hard to deal with people on their own terms. I guess that explains why I'm good with children as well; seeing things from a child's perspective comes very easily to me :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now I'm reading a thick novel by Stephen King, but I'm open for most types of literature. I'm often drawn towards science fiction, our anything that will give me new perspectives and show me different ways to think and see things.
Some of my favorite movies are: A Clockwork Orange, Lost in Translation, Only Lovers Left Alive, Night on Earth, The Wicker Man, Pan's Labyrinth. I'm sure there are pointless remakes of most of these, but those are not what I'm talking about.
I guess I don't watch that much TV right now. I love British comedy, but if we have that in common you might have already realized that :-) The Walking Dead is incredible, and I have this love-hate relationship with So You Think You Can Dance. The dancers are amazing but the loudness and Americanness of it is annoying. I also watched The Strain, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped but I couldn't stop watching.
I like spicy food, I grew up eating curries and Ethiopian food. I also love Mediterranean food. I recently discovered north African food which is spicy Mediterranean food, wohoo!
I'll eat almost anything though, especially if it's made from cheese. I'll also happily cook food, especially if I have an audience.
The six things I could never do without
Someone to talk to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What people do and why they do it. Trying to read their minds basically. I think I'm getting pretty good at it, but how would I know?
On a typical Friday night I am
My ideal Friday would be to get off work early, have a couple of gin and tonics on my beautiful balcony with some nice people or someone special. Then good food and good conversation, and then possibly finish with a late walk by the lake or watch a movie.
On my typical Friday night I get home at seven or later and eat something that's easy to make. Then I try to watch a movie but fall asleep on the couch before it's finished. Also, the balcony is covered with snow.
You should message me if
..you feel a connection. When you know you know, and if you're not quite sure, I'm not that scary to talk to. Just come with an open mind and I'll try to do the same. Also, we should have the same core values. You'd think that goes without saying but apparently not :-)
