Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A brief history of me runs as follows. Graduated uni with no real
idea what to do (temp jobs in a zoo and book shop), fell into a
Teaching Assistant position, thought I'd become a teacher, moved to
Birmingham to train, stayed there 3 years, qualified as a teacher,
threw a dart at a map, moved to Cairo as a primary school teacher
(love my year 3's at the moment) where I've been for 6 months
Currently living in Cairo, looking to move back to the UK this
summer. UPDATE: Moving to Nepal - home of mountain goats and Mt
Everest. If you live in Nepal look me up.
I haven't got my life planned out but tend to take each day as it
comes. Sometimes I wish I was more organised, but then where would
be the fun in that.
I tend to be quite shy in groups of new people. I enjoy meeting new
people. I enjoy my job but try hard to keep my personal and
professional lives separate (still not sure if I've quite got it
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going to Nepal in September. Trying to learn a bit of arabic, work,
gym, work, trying to work out where in the world to go next. Back
in blighty I play archery and would like to continue when I get
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Building, breaking, fixing and fiddling with computers. Learning a
word a day in a new language. Reading for pleasure. I can eat jaffa
cakes like there is no tomorrow. Singing along badly to Disney
songs. I can use a semicolon properly thanks to the oatmeal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am normally happy and optimistic. I don't do stress.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favourite author is moving from Terry Pratchett to Iain M Banks at
the moment. I have all the Discworld novels (Can't really have a
favourite but I think Carpe Jugulum is probably the best of the
witches series). I had the privilege of reading the Harry Potter
novels in school as they were released. I love the
LOTR/Silmarillion/Hobbit and have a few of the unreleased stories
and background books.
I will eat pretty much anything, but love curry, lebanese food,
chinese, tapas, roasts, cakes. Basically food is good. I am usually
pretty lazy about making exciting food for myself, but quite enjoy
cooking for more than one person.
Last year I didn't have a TV and this year being in Cairo means I
only get BBC world news and arabic channels. At home I like the
documentary channels, sci-fi series, QI, Nevermind the buzzcocks.
Not a large film watcher at home. I like the cinema.
My listening habits run from Stevie Wonder to Aqua to Fintroll to
R.E.M. to The High Kings to Metallica (rock, metal, ska, punk,
jazz, europop, classical, country, folk, hip hop, indie). Not a
huge fan of Urban R'n'B (Uh) music. Oh, just remembered I own and
play (badly) a banjo. Live music is good. I try and do a festival a
year but real life seems to get in the way of that. I did go to
Download last year though. Would like to do latitude again this
Last film I saw was the Hobbit and loved it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Everything else can be got with phone, wallet and keys)
I think that's the necessities covered.
I also have my motorbike but that's not in Cairo thank god.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain has a mind of its own, so I spend lots of time thinking
about many different things for short periods.
I guess that's a long winded way of saying my mind wanders.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the middle of my weekend, chillin' out maxin' relaxing all cool,
watching some dr who, or going out to see friends, or playing
computer games. I try to keep busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Can you keep a secret..........Well so can I.
