i'm a creative person with a pretty dry, sarcastic wit. I'd go into detail about how compassionate, considerate, outgoing and driven I am, but I'd prefer demonstrating that in person - these things tend to sound just a little comical when stated baldly on the internet. I'm an actor who fills my sometimes brief, sometimes extended breaks from doing that by working in a box office, selling tickets.
Below is one of my favourite quotes, which I know probably counts as cheating - but I'm not going to grope for a less brilliant way of expressing the below. It sums up a lot about my attitude to life and probably tells you more about me than any list of favourite bands, my secret longing for a cat or my planned coping strategies post-Breaking Bad ever could (the last two points being very true, btw).
“When did your childhood end? How badly did you get hurt, when you did, when you were this little wee little hurtable thing, nothing but big eyes, a heart, a few hundred words? Isn’t it wonderful how we never recover? Injuries and wounds, ladies and gents. Slights and abuses, oh, what a paradise. Living in fear, suiting the hurt to our need. What a happy life. What a good game. Who can stand the most, the most life, and still smile, still grin into the coming night and say more, more, encore, encore, you fuckers, you fates, just give me more of the bloody bloody same.”
