I can't think of much to write that doesn't make me sound a bit boring - but to be honest at the moment my life is work, read, work, and occasionally some sort of drink/meal/social event. It's cooler than it sounds I promise.
I love being in beautiful Oxford because of the limitless supply of books, clever people and places to walk.
I have some really big ideas about what I want to do with myself, how I plan to change the world for the better... but I frequently change my ambitions and life-events change them for me sometimes so I try not to take it all too seriously just in case another pesky life-event comes along and it all goes down the drain.
I like writing. I've kept a diary (to varying extents of completeness) since the year 2000.
My side-projects include helping to manage a food stall at uni which sells ethically sourced, popular wholefoods to staff and students in a sustainable way; and helping manage a growing project at uni where we grow vegetables on a roof-terrace.
UPDATE DEC-2013: I ate my carrots, beet and onion in September. Winter has torn the foliage off all my little tree saplings up there but it's only a few months until Spring and they'll be back :)
I have such admiration for the architects and engineers who had the imagination to design and build such triumphant buildings as those in Oxford.
I’m also really passionate about trees and plants. I have loads of favourites, it totally depends on the context/location.
When I was young, my aunt got me into Buddhism and through my teenage years I developed a Stoic, passive and optimist attitude in life, which is still prevalent.
