Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm now going to attempt to write something that actually reflects
me in some way, as opposed to just being a joke. I'm not convinced
that it'll go all that well because talking about myself is both my
most and least favourite things combined which will probably lead
to whatever I write having a bi-polar esque quality to it. But here
My name is Henry, I live in various places in and around Cardiff
thanks to circumstances requiring frequent changes of address.
Whilst this may sound suspicious I can assume that it’s only half
as bad as you’re imagining. I’m currently on the clock for a new
place to live in Cardiff so if you can suggest an area and defend
it when I question ‘why on earth I’d want to live there?’ I’d be
most pleased to hear from you. I’ve also lived in Scotland, Canada,
Cornwall and Hampshire. I could be more specific, but I
I'm pretty dull in most ways but enjoy conversation and the like.
Occasionally I even go out when it's dark and consume alcoholic
drinks in the company of others. However I can be more often be
found in a coffee shop with a cup of tea. I studied history at
University and as such would probably prefer the previously
mentioned coffee shop to be in a museum.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As of writing my plans change on almost a daily basis, but
ultimately they involve more study/training which will lead to more
money and the freedom to travel/move around as is my want. In
writing this I’ve realised this has been the plan for a while and
as such may need revising. But for the purposes of making me look
like a free spirit who has been constrained by the harsh realities
of living in the real world, it shall stay as is for now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Winning 'discussions', knowing a lot about things you don't care
about, putting off very important things, damaging my contact
lenses whilst changing them, evading the highway code whilst
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm early, relentlessly early, and that I'm smaller than I
look in my photos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I watch TV (Peaky Blinders, The Wire, Curb, Always Sunny, Breaking
Bad, Sherlock), read (1984, The Road, Only Forward, Sherlock
Holmes, The God Delusion), listen to music (Deer Tick, Tim Minchin,
Tim Barry, Hans Zimmer, Atari Teenage Riot, DFA 1979, Dead
Kennedys), watch films (Nightcrawler, Aliens, Eternal Sunshine of
the Spotless Mind, Little Miss Sunshine, `Moonrise Kingdom) and
also I do other stuff like climbing and hiking. Oh and I eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• My internal monologue
• Scraps of paper to write/doodle on
• The internet
• The ability to read
• The £8 t-shirts from H&M which are all I wear, this is less
true now I’ve been to Next
• Lists (bullet pointed this time I would have you note)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Conversations I may be about to have, dependent on whether whatever
scenario I'm currently living out in my head comes to pass. Usually
