Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Durban. Studied at UKZN and through UNISA. Have
travelled a bit working in England and Taiwan. My favourite sport
enjoy going out with friends whether to movies
as well as quiet times at home
I'm a bit of a walking contradiction. I don't really read that much
but work as an english lecturer. I'm a vegetarian who cares a lot
about the environment but spends way too much time in front of the
tv/computer and not much out in nature. I don't have much interest
in religious and spiritual matters but I have quite old-fashioned
morals (ok that part is probably a total lie...but in my defense
getting up to 500 words is proving to be a real challenge.
I'm pretty good at fitting in to different situations. I blame it
on my star sign being Cancer and moon sign Pisces (I've always had
way too much free time so know a lot of arb stuff I really
shouldn't know or care about). anyway that supposedly makes me
really fluid...like water is...except when it's ice...or a gas. I
wonder what the air in air signs contains. I get easily distracted
and side-tracked. I Procrastinate a lot.
ok back to my point. I can talk sports with the jocks, computers
with the geeks and about books with literary types. I'm pretty crap
with all things visual though- art, architecture all that kind of
stuff I just don't get.
I'm not overly ambitious. My only real ambition is to be happy some
I am funny, reckless, and strange
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching English at a high school. Trying to meet people as awesome
as me to spend time with. Trying to finish a book and film script.
seems like I'm trying a lot of things. Maybe it would be more
accurate to say intending to try to do all those things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting people to like me....but just not quite enough to date me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Piers Plowman for medieval times. Anything by Marlowe for
renaissance, Alice in wonderland, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and
Frankenstein for victorian. of more recent stuff- Born on the 4th
of july and Catch 22.
I also sometimes find the giant book of jewish fairy tales
(sometimes also known as the bible) quite amusing.
Movies: Not really good at remembering movies- they don't seem to
make as lasting an impression as books. Generally weird ones like
Donnie Darko and Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.
Music: Generally indie/alternative music- Metric, Beastie Boys,
RATM, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, MGMT.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
i'm pretty adaptable so not sure about this one. I guess i would
struggle without contact lenses if I needed to see stuff far away,
medicine if I'm sick, other than that erm food, water, oxygen and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the meaning of life, why more people don't realise how awesome i
am, that kind of thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a few drinks with friends. Or if it's been a tiring week
then watching tv or playing computer games. I'm trying to buy more
series on dvd to avoid just having to watch whatever random crap is
on at the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
4 out of 5 doctore agree that I'm insane. If i'm unsure what to do
in a given situation I ask myself "What would Cartman do?". It used
to be "What would Bender do?" but Futurama hasn't been on for quite
some time and my memory aint so good.
