What I’m doing with my life
After working in the financial services sector in London for a good while, I am now back 'up North' retraining to go into the world of teaching. Exctied about the prospect of warping the minds of the future. Enthusiastic adventurer desperately trying to run up the air miles with fanciful excursions around the globe. Trying, and failing, to curtail my Urban Outfitters addiction.
I’m really good at
Suffering from severe memory loss the morning after the night
before but being able to maintain a relatively lucid conversation
whilst hugely intoxicated (or so I've been told). Giving sage
advice but being incapable of following it myself. Trivial Pursuit.
Playing Spotify DJ at friends houses. Saying 'yes' to people, on
the flip side I'm really poor at saying 'no'. I'm pretty handy at
cooking duck. Wandering off by myself to have my own ridiculous,
often dangerous, adventure. Squeezing through small spaces (years
of gymnastics training finally paying dividend). Taps with a
football (for a girl at least).
The first things people usually notice about me
I look taller than I really am. Once a nurse had to measure me 3
times because she thought her hight-chart-thing was wrong although
for the other few hundred people before me apparently it was right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Aurally...rather specific musical snobbery...Talking Heads, Prince,
Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies, The Clash, Devo, Felix Da Housecat,
Grandmaster Flash, Lou Reed, Salt n Pepa, Joy Division, New Order,
Chromeo, DAF, Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, The Horrors, The Wedding
Present...Annie Lenox amazes me...I have books that fill two 6ft
bookcases, mostly unopened...Visually...Studio Ghibli, Inglorious
Basterds, Pan's Labyrinth, Flight of the Conchords, Chris Lilley,
Gael Garcia Bernal, The Returned...anything from continental
The six things I could never do without
Visually offensive multicoloured jumpers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to make enough money to own a property in every
country in the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Disco dancing my way out of the office, trying to concoct a
ridiculous plan of escape from a pedestrian weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once dated a guy who wears flares and cuban heals.
You should message me if
You're a heady spontaneous adventurer.
