I'm a little bit of a contradiction of terms... I am a scientist
and total gamer that has a sideline obsession with how everything
works but I also love the beach and 4wding and camping with
friends. I'm a country girl that now lives in the big smoke Valley
with her two smelly men (cat & dog). I ride motorbikes and
could drink you under the table :P.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm completing a Masters degree at the moment in Research
(Biomedical Science) and am loving the sh*t out of it. I also work
as a lab tech but my feet are getting pretty itchy and I'm hoping
to do my PhD in Germany (fingers crossed).
I’m really good at
sniping, seriously; I'm a level six sharpshooter ok.
Seriously though, I don't know how to answer this question so maybe
when I get to know you, you could answer it for me :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Recently, my dreadlocks. But after that, probably that I swear a
whole lot and like to laugh at everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Where do I start? My bookcase is overflowing with all sorts of
titles, from the classics (Lolita, One flew over the cuckoo's nest,
Brave New World, Clockwork Orange), to a few philosophical ones
(mostly Camus and a bit of Nietzsche and Sartre but don't judge me
on that!) to more recent books such as the Game of Thrones series
and the Hunger Games. I also love any book by Pratchett or Ben
Music wise, I have very varied taste. As long as it's not
commercial radio nonsense like Rhianna or Bieber, I'll probably
like it. Some of my favourites include Something for Kate, Wombats,
Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down, Regurgitator and Love
I'm on a bit of a depressing folk-ish music binge at the moment
(i.e. Perishers, Passenger, Mountain Goats) but I'll grow out of it
soon. I also love supporting local bands and my latest favourite is
Some of my favourite shows include the IT crowd, Whites, Dirk
Gently, Ugly Americans, Breaking Bad, Nurse Jackie, United States
of Tara, Red Dwarf, The young ones and Slide.
The six things I could never do without
Red wine or scotch
My motorbike :)
A good book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. The universe amazes me, from the quantum
level to the cellular level to the stars. I am a curious being that
loves to challenge my beliefs and thoughts about the world.
Learning something new is one of the most rewarding things to me
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at home with a wine in hand playing skyrim or tf2 or out at
the pub with friends, drinking beer and talking shit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am petrified of boogers. Almost nothing else phases me;
spiders-no worries, snakes-just happy little lizards without legs,
vomit- no dramas. But snot just straight out terrifies me...
You should message me if
You are intelligent and curious about the world and love to talk
about all manner of things. A good philosophical drunk debate is
one of my favourite pastimes in the world.
You like spontaneous, cheeky people and are up for a bit of fun and
