Cheers for taking a look at my profile. Here's a few things I like:
Writing - I do it for a living. I've got two books out so far and more should be finished soon(ish). I tend to lean towards more gothic, darkly humorous stuff. It can be a lot of fun and it was a great feeling seeing my books on the shelves of Waterstones for the first time. Also, I've just started doing some freelance copywriting on the side.
Learning stuff - I've ended up with two masters degrees in Egyptology and Global Politics. They were interesting but I think I need a break from academia for a bit. However, I am trying to conjure up some new things to do in the future...
Teaching - I travel around the country teaching creative writing in schools. It's great fun and pretty surreal, but I get to talk about zombie islands, spaceship cannibalism and rampaging hydras for a living so I've no complaints! You can probably guess I'm a bit of a geek too and getting to chat/write about geeky things for a living is perfect. Also, I've lived in Greece and Spain where I taught TEFL as well.
Eating out - I love going to restaurants and I pop down to the local sushi place for lunch a couple times a week. I have a "usual" there now and I'm a bit proud of that.
Music - Currently listening to a lot of Wolf Parade, Nick Cave, The Deep Dark Woods and Springsteen. I enjoy gigs too although most of the bands I like don't tend to play in the UK that much.
Films and TV - I love comedies and at the moment Archer, Louie and South Park are my favourite TV series. In terms of films, I watch all sorts. The Darjeeling Ltd is probably my favourite film and I enjoy a good Will Ferrell comedy. Supernatural ones freak me out although I do find myself fascinated by them.
Butterfly houses - absolutely love them and I want one in my garden, I need a garden first though.
