Hi - I'm into helping make the world a better place, when I'm not
at work that is. I suppose you could say idealistic, but I think
it's more realistic given the multiple crises we face. However, I
am optimistic that we can change the course we are currently on.
Material trappings of life are not my thing.
I am progressive, non-materialist, and alternative
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time from 9 to 5, or thereabouts, during the week. At
least, this is what I have to do to pay the bills.
When not at work, I contribute to the movements for social change.
Anti-war, climate change, international solidarity, worker's
rights, democratic rights and civil liberties are important
I also like to relax and go to the beach when time allows.
I’m really good at
Being politically active, reading, cycling (though I still get
passed by most other cyclists!), being concerned for others.
The first things people usually notice about me
Possibly my shyness, and so it can appear as though I'm quiet. But
this is not always the case!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I'm vegetarian most of the time
Movies: V for Vendetta, Sicko and any Michael Moore film. Not
really into Hollywood blockbusters.
Music: Rage Against The Machine, KMFDM, Metallica, Megadeth,
Soundgarden, Nirvana, Anti-Flag, Sick Of It All, Iron Maiden,
Public Enemy, Hoodoo Gurus, TISM, Alice in Chains plus lots of
others. Any political music is good too.
The six things I could never do without
Good conversation, books, music, concern for others, concern for
the state of the world, and love for humanity. (no cliche intended)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The issues facing the world. History and philosophy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Mostly recovering from the week at work!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy some sport watching, which doesn't usually gel with my
other interests mentioned here! I follow Rugby League, but not
avidly. I used to play tennis in days gone by.
You should message me if
You have some level of concern for others and the state of the
world. Or, if you enjoy discussing the issues facing humanity at
the crossroads. If you don't conform to the mainstream (too much -
we have to be a part of it in some way) If you are open minded
about most things. If you are usually compassionate towards others
instead of suspicious of others.
