I drive a banged-up old hatchback, live in a small apartment behind a large house, eat a diet mainly consisting of takeaway food, and study history in my spare time. I believe that the Savage Garden song 'Affirmation' is among the greatest philosophical works of the last century, and that all the problems of the world can be solved by rock-paper-scissors.
I'm non-monogamous, and currently in an open relationship with one amazing woman, and casually seeing another. If you're cool with that, I'm cool with you.
Unfortunately this doesn't bring in much money, or I would do it for a living. At the moment I'm working in the transport industry, saving up for a trip to the UK, and considering going back to uni.
I'm moderately good at archery, hockey, and music. I was a trumpeter through high school, played in orchestras and jazz bands, and dabbled in composition and lyric writing.
Something I'd love to be better at is acting. I've performed in a few amateur stage productions, but in the last few years I've been preoccupied with other distractions. I've worked backstage as a set designer, stage manager, sound tech or general dogsbody on a bunch of high-school and amateur stage shows, and would love to do so again if I wasn't caught up in other hobbies.
Lately I've acquired a forge and an anvil and have been trying my hand at blacksmithing and other forms of metal work. I recommend it; it's a great way to de-stress that involves no jail time, and sometimes results in pretty things being made. I've also dabbled in brass and silversmithing as well as knife-making, and I'm considering going to TAFE or uni to get some proper grounding in artistic metalwork and sculpture.
Books - when I'm done reading them I use them to hold up wobbly tables.
Cider - it's like apple juice, but with alcohol. In fact, that's exactly what it is.
Something to make or repair - crafting things with my hands is one of the most relaxing and fulfilling activities I know.
My beard - because without it I look like a 12-year-old.
If you love the outdoors.
If you're a nerd at heart.
If you like cider and cats and tabletop RPGs and have no idea how to play pool.
Or if you're none of the above, but have a bunch of crazy obsessions all of your own.
