Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Nik.
I'm fun loving, very energetic and my friends enjoy my antics and
shenanigans when we hang out. They never know what to expect.
I like to think I'm polite and try my best to help people out
whenever possible. I also try to get people to smile on public
transport because everyone usually looks so unhappy.
I guess you could call me a gamer or a nerd but I don't think I
really fit the normal stereotypes for either label. I enjoy the
occasional video game but prefer the more social ones like Guitar
Hero or Rock Band. I collect, build and paint both Warhammer and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working as IT Support in the Education sector in
Melbourne, I'm enjoying it but I'm considering going to Uni or TAFE
to get more recognised learning.
I'm competing at national level in yacht racing in the Tasar class.
I competed in the World titles at beginning of this year and again
in the states recently. In September I'm looking forward to the
nationals in Townsville.
Other than that, I'm hanging out with friends whenever they're free
and also trying really hard to get better at / finishing the
painting of my Warhammer collection.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving hugs, making a fool of myself/having fun with friends,
fixing computers and other consumer electronic devices. I enjoy
problem solving and usually won't give up until a problem's solved.
So I guess that I'm good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm pretty shy and maybe my hair as it can get pretty silly at
times. Other than that I don't really know. I guess I often hear
that I look pretty sharp in a suit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I really love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, I've starting
reading through his other books and enjoying them as well. Tom
Clancy's fiction books with Jack Ryan in them are also fond
favourites with Executive Orders and The Hunt for Red October being
stand out favourites.
The older Disney animated movies are generally enjoyable and pretty
much all of Pixar's stuff is legendary. Otherwise I generally enjoy
Sci-Fi or Comedy movies. I generally avoid Horror films as I figure
we've got too much of that in the real world to want to escape to
another place with more of it.
For TV shows, I really enjoy Q.I., Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Big Bang
Theory, The Might Boosh, The IT Crowd, Black Books, Stargate S.G.1
and Atlantis. Possibly some others too that have escaped my
thoughts at the moment.
Music I generally enjoy Rock and Alternative but I'm finding with
playing the music games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band that my
taste in music is diversifying, which is always good. However I
stay completely away from Country Western and Heavy Metal.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The usual things I guess, a suitable living environment, you know
oxygen, protection from radiation, gravity, sustenance and what
not. That's a given.
My friends and family come next, I guess these can count as two but
I can't really separate them as my closest friends I consider to be
my family anyway.
Next would be my phone, now I'm not really a talker on the phone
but I like knowing that if people need to contact me they can as I
have it with me almost all the time but I do ignore
calls/messages/whatever when I'm supposed to. Plus my phone is
internet connected so if I'm bored I can do whatever on it.
My music belongs in this list too. I listen to it a lot and it does
the usual things for me that it does to pretty much everyone
Last but not least is nature. I grew up in basically "The Bush" so
I'm used to have birds and trees around me. When it's really quiet
I become unnerved because usually that's when something bad is
about to happen as animals have that sixth sense about them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
ways to make the tasks I'm doing more interesting or work better,
how to make the world a better place and how awesome it'd be to be
able to fly or go to the moon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I'm home chilling out watching DVDs or playing video games
but more than occasionally my friends drag me out and we hang out
in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm, I don't really know. I can't think of anything off the top of
my head as I generally will tell people anything if they ask the

you message me more than a sentence.
