I'm ridiculously interested in the science of this site,
blog.okcupid.com if you haven't already seen it.
I'm living in Cambridge but I'm all over the country most weekends.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently studying for my Masters' in Education by day, and
writing for a couple of online magazines by night. Not quite as
cool as 'fighting crime', but it's nice to be paid to do the thing
you'd be doing anyway.
I hope to one day go into Education research, but it's a very
competitive business. For the moment I'll continue to study and
publish, and see where I get.
I’m really good at
Writing, Trivia and Scrabble.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have quite a large scar running from my eye down my cheek, which
makes me look like a b-list bond villain. (It doesn't show up too
badly in my photos, partially why I chose those three)
Other than that people tend to think I'm a lot more judgemental
than I am. Which isn't to say I don't judge people, but I do it
favourably more often than not. Apparently when I'm being quiet
it's actually quite ominous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Douglas Adams and Wodehouse as a general rule, and if left
to my own devices I tend to fall into them pretty easily. I get
through a lot of non-fiction science stuff because I'm that kind of
nerd. Every so often I'll dig out 'The Last Good Kiss' by James
Crumley and read just the first line because it is the best
introduction to a character ever written.
I don't watch as many movies as I should. However the Back to the
Future series is a guilty pleasure that I'm actually incredibly
In terms of Music, I have two moods. Mood 1 consists of bands
solely from 1960-1980. Other days I listen entirely to Electronica.
I don't know why this is a thing but there we go.
The six things I could never do without
My Kindle -- I have spent £580 on books this past year, which
borders on the inhuman.
My Bass Guitar -- I only got this like 6 months ago because I'm not
talented enough to play an actual guitar, but I have fallen in love
with it. It is just brilliant to play around with.
The Internet -- sometimes I think we forget that we live in the
future and have actually harnessed magic. The internet is the most
genuinely awe inspiring thing humanity has ever created.
My Cat -- Her name is Artemis and she is fluff happening to
The Bridge -- The Bridge is the name of the pub where me and all my
friends have hung out since we were 17, and it has such a
ludicrously cozy atmosphere to the place that when you walk in it
feels like the building is giving you a hug. We're in there most
weekends, as a sort of alcoholic version of 'Friends'.
Alcohol -- See Above
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What it would be like to live in fictional worlds. What Pokemon
Shakesperian characters would have if they had Pokemon. The best
ways to express an idea.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the pub, discussing the influence of Nietzsche on
existentialism, or how Greg's new girlfriend looks just like Fizz
from Coronation Street. (She looks JUST LIKE Fizz from Coronation
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy cartoon shows for kids far more than any adult has a right
You should message me if
A man has broken into your house and is demanding that you do at
