Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking... I think.
I just love experimenting in the kitchen. I've recently been
practicing making curry from scratch by following traditional
recipes. I've also gotten pretty good at cooking crispy duck and
Chinese style egg fried rice. I'm entirely self taught, if you can

The student life has affected my TV habits, but I'm quite into
Utopia at the moment. I also recently caught up on Misfits and I
sometimes watch The Jeremy Kyle Show with my housemates for a

I have a slight phobia of driving. Despite owning my own car and
being qualified for over a year I still prefer to walk places if
possible. I'm hoping to meet people from a bit further afield to
help conquer it.
