My self-summary
30 year old guy, living in Clapham, South London. In my spare time I don't do anything too wild, generally out for a drink with some mates or playing football! Like to keep fit and do a lot of sport, also enjoy nights in with a book or watching a movie. I did my degree and MA in English Lit so really into reading lots of different books, anything really from a bit of Game of Thrones-style escapism to a lot of the stuff I did at uni like Samuel Beckett or Jorge Luis Borges (read him if you haven't, he's amazing). Typical guy when it comes to films I guess, can't beat a bit of action and blowing stuff up, but also like some classic 80s films like Back to the Future or The Princess Bride. Other favourites are slightly quirky things like Pan's Labyrinth. Like my music too - used to play a bit of guitar (fairly ineptly) in bands at uni, the most I manage now is the annual talent show at the school where I teach (we never win). Into rock / indie stuff and like going to gigs when I can, currently into bands like Mumford & Sons, The Vaccines, Ed Sheeran, Muse, and so on...I'm not going to list them all - also like some older music like Bowie, Rolling Stones, The Who, Hendrix, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Primary School teacher with 10-11 year olds; really enjoy the job, and the fact I get to spend most of my day having a bit of a laugh - even if the kids rarely get my jokes (reading the Odyssey, Odysseus gets the Cyclops drunk and pokes his eye out - I said 'bet he woke up with a blinding hangover' - no laughs - that's funny right?).
I’m really good at
...arguing when no one else cares. Politics, religion, morality, whatever, I'll end up just talking to myself while everyone else gets on doing something else...
