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 seeing two amazing women. 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, paying off 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.
