Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Pathologically irreverent, bigtime Morrissey/Smiths fan,
libertarian/libertine. I think a LOT about the world around me and
my place in it, how I want to live my life and why. Politically, a
bit rad (but in, like, a non-dogmatic, affable kind of way). I
cannot and do not get on with people who take their career

I'm good at... remembering film quotes exactly and dropping them
into conversation, thinking, over-thinking, excess, forgetting what
I was doing an hour ago. And... putting things off. Oh - eating. I
like all food (but I don't eat meat). I can also strum and sing
most Smiths' songs you'd care to name.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Love n life n psychoanalysis n stuff
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting drunk with friends. I am that predictable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm terrible at admitting private things publicly. I'm a bit of a
private person, I suppose.
