My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

The first thing you should know about me is that I'm a total geek. Not a WOW, or War Hammer geek. Put your tongue back in your mouth and your 12 sided die away! I mean that I like real intellectual pursuits. I like understanding the cutting edge of topics and discussing philosophy at length, with people who have good vocabulary. I read New Scientist and am about 18 months away from completing a PhD researching Amazonian Shamanism in Britain.

I'm hoping to find someone with a spark of adventure and excitement. someone happy in their life but also who has drive to do bigger, better, more interesting and fun things.

To be fair i'm a bit put out at my personality report - it say's I'm:
Less Good-Natured
Less Sex-Driven
Less Into Exercise
Less Scientific
Less Wholesome
Less Friendly

I'm all of those things dammit. For a start I cycle 10 miles a day, and dance when I can. I'm a God damn Social Scientist, and we have to find just as much rationale for our theories and claims than anyone working in the STEM subject fields. Rant over (as you cross out wholesome, friendly and good-natured).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying a PhD, part time.
Blogging and writing about academia.
Working as an Admin assistant despite almost daily reminders that I should be doing much more with my time.
Some community work.
Playing my guitar for no good reason other than I want to.
Attempting to understand consciousness, spirit and the question to which 42 is the answer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Coming up with elaborate and ambitious projects, loosing hours, thinking of books I'll never write, embarrassing myself over the potential of love, agonising over work only to find a type-o too late, being self critical, talking about my passions to the point I realise I sound like a lecturer, keeping to agreements.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I knew I would probably change it. Just to mix it up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

BOOKS: Art/design, psychology, biographies, Douglas Adams, contemporary fiction,Terry Pratchett, DBC Pierre, Carlos Castaneda. Since taking up research my reading time is spent primarily on related non-fiction (shamanism, DMT, methogologies, philosophy of religion etc).

MOVIES: Eternal sunshine for the spotless mind, Batman, marvel comic adaptations, psychological thrillers, art house, most action, horror, good stoner comedies, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (and a good few Luc Besson movies), definitely Christopher Nolan's work, Pi, Primer, Memento, The Prestige, anything with Christian Bale in (except Mary, Mother of Jesus), The Game, Donny Darko, Revolver, Spider, Inception, The imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, Mr Nobody, Cloud Atlas, Lynch, Gilliam, Cubrik, Cronenburg, Fincher. Ex machina is my most favourite watch recently. And Chappie.

MUSIC: Most tunes, in fact anything goes if I am in a good mood: trip-hop, dub step, hip-hop, breaks, metal, jungle, acoustic, reggae, dance hall, soul, blues, rock, alt-rock, Psy-trance etc. Love Incubus, Deftones, Beth Orton, PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, Turin Breaks, Tribe Called Quest, Distillers, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Gomez, UNKLE, Kate Bush, Dub FX, Muse, Zero 7, Surgeon and then some.

FOOD: My diet is a nightmare. I have type 2 diabetes and have to be ridiculously careful about everything. Essentially in just have to eat super healthy. No sugar no unrefined carbs and a small amount of complex carbs. Yes it's ducky sometimes. No I don't expect you to have to eat like me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the obvious survival necessities.
Good friends

My mind and the ability to communicate my thoughts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to fit everything into just one lifetime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping off the week so I can put all my energy into the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I got diagnosed with diabetes and it destroyed me for a little there. All good now though.
