My self-summary
I'm Alex. 26, though I neither look not feel it.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a trainee Spanish teacher until the end of summer term, 2016.
I’m really good at
having a way with words. I'm a cunning linguist.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the Discworld series, Erast Fandorin novels, anything by Italo Calvino, detective novels, and books in translation.

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.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee
Green Tea
A decent pair of headphones
Murakami's "What I talk about when I talk about running"
Cheeses
Travel & adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
*getting out of here and seeing new sights.
*how to make Spanish grammar exciting for 11 to 16 year olds.
On a typical Friday night I am
thankful it is Friday, ready to recharge in whatever way the world sees fit.
You should message me if
*you want to know more.
*you'd like to keep me company.
