What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

so it's my de facto favourite film.) But I enjoy a lot of movies.
My favourite quote from a movie comes from Conan the Destroyer
"Princess: Nothing hurts you, does it, Conan?

spend a lot of time doing experiments by myself, so having a set of
awesome music is important to keep up my energy level. If you hear

Food: all of it. God, I love food. There has not been a culture

The six things I could never do without
