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 goes.
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 won’t.
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
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
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
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
• 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
Conversations I may be about to have, dependent on whether whatever scenario I'm currently living out in my head comes to pass. Usually it doesn’t.
