I can often be shy and sometimes come across as blasé even though I
find myself taking an interest in a broad (if sometimes narrow)
range of topics. I like to listen and think and mull over things
more than directly engaging them and so I am often quiet in group
conversations whether I feel I have a lot to say on the subject or
not. When in smaller groups however I find myself wanting to drive
conversation when others are more content to be quiet.
What I’m doing with my life
I studied graphic design and am now working in the different (but
related) field of print. In print we hate graphic designers so I've
kind of switched sides.
I’m really good at
Telling lame jokes and being a dork... and half knowing facts, or
things I thought were facts, but I forgot the details so I don't
remember what the original fact was, but you can be sure it
definitely was, or wasn't, or was either/or.
The first things people usually notice about me
Without a doubt my height and people always feel the need to
comment on it too (as if I didn't already know :p). p.s no I don't
play basketball. Also quite a few people think I'm younger than I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My first choice of media is video games. I think they're a great
way to tell, participate in and create stories and I like the
intricacies of game design and culture - that said I'm not a huge
fan of other gamers.
Music - I'm not a raver or even clubber, but I love trance:
including euro, hard, vocal, progressive, uplifting/epic; electro,
dubstep and the general kind of "dance" genres (also euro-dance
because who doesn't love Aqua and Venga Boys?). Ludacris... because
that guy lives up to his name with amusing rhymes. Like most
people, I also like a lot of other songs and genres not mentioned
Books - Merlin series by Mary Stewart, Halo series , Fight Club,
Lord of the Rings, World War Z, Catcher in the Rye. I read a
Hemingway novel and hated it all the way until the end and then I
felt bad (no spoilers!).
Movies - a lot! Really there's too many to mention and I don't have
a particular genre that I like either. Amelie, A Very Long
Engagment, Run Lola Run are a few favorites. Okay so maybe I do
have a favourite genre - as you can tell I quite enjoy non-English
Shows - Battlestar Galactica (so say we all), Futurama, The (old)
Simpsons, Family Guy, Breaking Bad, South Park, Ghost in the Shell,
The Venture Bros and many more.
The six things I could never do without
My computer, because it contains the following:
Internet (for learnin' new things)
Without sounding too arrogant, my sense of humour which keeps me
My phone, in case my computer doesn't work, I need a back up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cop out answer: All kinds of things (as mentioned above I have many
Real answer: life and shit. I don't want to die just yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are entirely typical, though I wouldn't mind
shaking them up a bit (hint hint: that's why I'm on this site).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I already admitted I like Aqua and The Venga Boys how much sicker
and depraved could I be?
