Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from Malta, I moved to Norwich to study and fell in love
with Norwich so I kind of stuck around.
When it comes to my general demeanor, I think sarcastic with a dark
sense of humour would sum things up nicely, since I always have
some sort of smarmy remark about any given situations (not always
funny mind, but I digress). I am nice though honest! I also like to
consider myself immensely driven, always in the middle of one
project or another. This trait can be good and bad as I am usually
successful when I have enough passion for something but I tend to
lose focus on other things in the process.
As for my general likes I like to consider myself sufficiently well
rounded. I love video games, comic books and anything else which
can be considered geeky. However I also enjoy history, art,
science, intellectual debate and other such faff.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As previously mentioned, I am a recent graduate, I studied Games
Art and Design to be exact. Since I decided to spend three years
studying games I have a strong passion for video games, the culture
that surrounds it and the industry in general. Sadly I don't have
much time to play that many games, partially because I see them as
work and also because I can see right through a lot of their
As for the rest of the time I am either working or doing things
such enjoying what little free time I have with friends at the pub
or watching movies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering and reciting historical events and other useless to
everyday life facts and information.
Drawing and painting (I guess...seeing as I have an A level in the
Starting Conversation (I can start a conversation with practically
anyone as I have very little shame. However making it last for more
than thirty minutes entirely depends on how interesting the person
and/or situation is)
Making a mean cup of tea
This was formerly cooking but now I spend very little time cooking
and more stressing, so I guess I am good at stressing myself out..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality wise, most people will notice that I tend to try being
in the spotlight if I am in the mood for it.
Body wise, I guess most people will notice my tanned skin (although
this is fading fast), and a beard that fluctuates in size depending
on my mood. I guess when I bother to wear them my glasses as
As for other things people tend to be remarked about when I first
meet someone, I would say my accent. Nobody seems to really
understand where it comes from and to be honest neither do I. Some
people have said it sounds South African, Italian, Spanish and some
have even said Irish for some reason! The most accurate association
to my accent I ever got (from multiple people) is Prince Navine
from Princess and the Frog xD.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
While I love books, I do not tend to read as many as I should, most
of my reading involves books about history, mythology and whatever
I am researching (for work or pleasure) at the time. I am currently
reading The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell and The
Chariots of the Gods? by Erich von Däniken (I am not ashamed to say
I copy-pasted the name of the author!)
As for movies I stray between blockbuster comic book movies such as
The Avengers, Iron Man and other movies that makes my nerd show or
a mixture of movies including well known movies such as Fight Club
and American Psycho to lesser known cult movies such as Donnie
Darko. I'll usually watch anything once, but I may or may not
complain after doing so...
When it comes to music my taste changes accordingly, I have a habit
of listening to a song endlessly until I become physically ill
whenever I hear it, currently I am enjoying some Jonathan Coulton
music although I may opt for a change soon enough. Singers and
bands which I do like though include Gorillaz, The Smiths and
I'll eat almost anything so I wouldn't say I have favourites, food
and I have a more often than not a one sided relationship, I love
it but due to student life cannot always afford the finer things
such as sushi and *insert highly expensive dish here*.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Tea (Yorkshire for the most part and Earl Grey when feeling
My Phone (for work purposes and playing Rayman)
Japanese Food (or any other food for that matter)
Pen/Pencils and Paper (This is a lie, give me a keyboard and
graphics tablet any day)
Good company (including just my own)
...and again for emphasis, tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future and how I will survive self annihilation through the use
of alcohol, cigarettes, lack of sleep and most importantly of all
lack of funds.
Why I decided to pick an industry that is so hard to get into
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working at my waitering job, working at home on my own projects or
whenever I am not doing either of those things, having a pint with
my friends while actively attempting not to get dragged into a
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 19 I refused to leave a plane because I realized I just
went on a three week backpacking trip in Japan when I hadn't really
done much travelling before (none by myself!)
