My self-summary
Hello, and welcome to my profile!

The TL;DR summary:
Mechanical engineer, avid piano-player, expert of unintentional sarcasm and ice cream fanatic. Created this profile to meet new and different people, possibly finding a relationship along the way.
What I’m doing with my life
After completing my Masters in mechanical engineering, I moved to East London and now work at an engineering consultancy for offshore contraptions and underwater doo-hickeys... pardon the technical jargon.

Music is my biggest passion, followed by ice cream, cookies and things written by Charlie Brooker. I play the piano- mostly classical but some covers also sneak in sometimes.
I’m really good at
Terrible, terrible puns.

Accidentally insulting people, usually with unintentional sarcasm.

Non-photogenicity. Making up words.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some people think that I'm from Norway. I get that a lot.

I also have a big mouth, both literally and sometimes figuratively. I have a tendency to blurt things out before I've fully considered the consequences.

I look pretty young but I offset it by complaining about the damn kids on my lawn.

I don't swear that much. Or actually I do, but I replace all the words with delicious things like fudge, sugar and custard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love reading, but don't do it enough. Recently finished Orwell's 1984, which I took on holiday in case all the sunshine and happiness got too much.

Random recent-ish shows:
Lost, GoT, Flight of the Conchords, Black Mirror, Nathan Barley, Life on Mars, Adventure Time!, Attack on Titan.

Some random music:
Sufjan Stevens, Animal Collective, Wild Beasts, Radiohead, Elbow, Interpol, Perfume Genius, The xx, Grizzly Bear.
The six things I could never do without
My piano/keyboard
Ice cream
Cookies
Music
Terrible, terrible puns
London at night

Also, as an added bonus, things I could definitely do without:
'Lad' culture
Hashtags, especially on TV
The disappointment of realising they're only *raisin* cookies
People who say their own name at the start of a song
Talking about 'celebs'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How society needs a symbol representing sarcasm for texting, so everyone will finally stop thinking I'm saying something completely stupid on purpose.

Why the first song played on Mars was from popular dross-factory will.i.am and *not* David Bowie's 'Life on Mars'. What kind of message are we sending to these aliens?!

Feminism. And Switzerland (sometimes)
On a typical Friday night I am
Analysing Kanye West/Nicki Minaj lyrics and lamenting the state of humanity.
You should message me if
You're an open, honest person who isn't afraid to speak their mind.

Get in touch!

PS. not gonna lie, I'm pretty lax at sending first messages on here. So go on, break the stereotype about girls never sending the first message on here... *if you dare* :P
