Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings and salutations. My name is Matthew, Pokémon Master in
training and proud member of Ravenclaw house. I like to think I am
one of those "all round nice guys" that you hear about, so if you
are missing one of those from your arsenal of friends feel free to
get in touch.
I am a board game nut (much to most of my friends' chagrin), a big
animal lover and can always be found with either a book or pokémon
game in hand. Buy me a good hot chocolate and I shall love you
forever. Trade for baked goods? I spend a lot of time with my
beloved kitchenaid whipping up something tasty and
I dislike going out to places where you have to shout just to have
a conversation, poor spelling really grates on me and I abhor being
called Matt (I don't even know why!).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently a PhD student in the general field of Systems Biology,
though I shan't bore you with the details!
In an ideal world I would be able to go back to undergrad and study
Veterinary Medicine, but bar me winning the lottery (or getting a
seriously rich sugar daddy) this is not likely, so I find myself
adrift in a sea of not-so-appealing options.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading - I am one of those who will sit and read a book cover to
cover, often not realising the time.
Watching TV - I have been known to sit for over 24 hours straight
in the midst of a marathon. Sci-Fi marathons are the best.
Baking - though I am pretty clumsy, so at least one kitchen
disaster is bound to happen every time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses. Followed by my piercing gaze behind the lenses.
Possibly my height, or rather my lack of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books are far too many to list. I read all the time. I tend to read
a lot of fiction aimed at teenagers rather than more "hard hitting"
stuff, which I guess says a lot about me. My favourite series would
have to be the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, but the few
people I have convinced to read them don't seem to share my
Movies are also too many to list. I have a passion for foreign
cinema, mainly because I love foreign languages, so can often be
found watching French and Japanese movies. I am pretty easy going
when it comes to subject matter though: rom-coms, sci-fi, fantasy,
musicals, kids films, gay cinema... I tend to steer clear of horror
and gore, mainly because they are generally all the same, and I
much prefer being able to sleep with ease.
TV wise, I watch a lot of American stuff: Arrested Development,
Archer, Buffy & Angel, Parks & Recreation, Once Upon A
Time, Weeds, GILMORE GIRLS... This list could go on a while.
Recently started rewatching The Tribe (does anyone remember that?!)
which is equal parts awful and amazing. A big fan of More4. Sci-fi,
as ever, is a big part of my life. BSG is just epic, DW (new and
old) rocks! Anyone who loves Twin Peaks get in touch ^.^
Love a good bit of anime. My joint favourites are Bleach and
Cardcaptor Sakura (I know, rather different!) but I love all
different kinds. Obviously Pokémon and Digimon are up there, as is
Fairy Tail, Tsubasa Chronicles, xxxHolic, Code Geass (far too much
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My board game collection (getting bigger by the day).
Love (so corny).
In no particular order of course.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Tactics for surviving a zombie apocalypse/a Battle Royale
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Badgering my friends to play board games with me, watching some
Japanese anime or reading.
Did I mention that I am kind of lame?
