Whether tis wiser for the heart to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous judgement
Or to take Arms against a sea of twerps,
And by ignoring end them; to stop, to sleep
No more; and by by ignoring we say end
The hearth-ache and the thousand silly jocks
That Flesh is heir to? To a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To stop, to quit.
To sleep, perchance to Dream;
And so. Yes, I'm looking to date but also for new friends. How well people get on is very hard to work out.
I'm an ex-Canberran who has returned after years away in the Europe, the US and later in Melbourne and have now been back in Canberra for about a year.
Being back in the Can has actually gone well. It's good to be in a city where you can be in the bush so quickly. Riding a mountain bike on a trail near your house is grouse. The coast isn't that much further than a good beach from Melbourne and the mountains are all around us. So I've been getting out and about a bit too.
There are things like MIFF, the Comedy Festival and Fringe Festival that I miss, but Canberra has good stuff too.
I'm fairly active, play volleyball and soccer when I can and actually really read about a book a week. I'm on Goodreads if you're really curious about my literary habit.
