I studied languages at university, spent a few years in full time retail, and I'm currently retraining as a Spanish teacher. So, I guess I'm looking for company to stop the lesson plans driving me insane.
When I'm not wondering how my kids -- sorry, students -- are performing, I'm trying to keep up with all things nerd: games, Netflix binges, and the occasional film with friends. I prefer pub nights to club nights, but if the company's right I'm down for anything.
Movies: Comic book adaptations, Woody Allen films, and LGBT world cinema. My all-time fave, though, is Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man.
TV: I'm in love with House of Cards, The (US) Office, Portlandia and The Bridge. I'm currently running through Bob's Burgers, and have a list of shows to watch that is ever growing.
Music: Literally anything. Soft spot for Sneaker Pimps and The Long Blondes. Club 'floor fillers' like Modjo and Haddaway are my guilty pleasure.
Food: Fairly open-minded. I'll take pasta and tapas over anything. Newly converted to sushi and Vietnamese.
A decent pair of headphones
