My self-summary
Hello! I'm Amanda, welcome to my page. . . .
OKC told me I'm more energetic, organised and polite than the average user, so that is something for you to think about while you glance over the rest of my profile.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a charity, improving cycle parking in social housing and I love it. Job's coming to an end soon so I'm hoping to move into urban design/urban planning.

I like my cycling trips with girlfriends; holidays to Europe (cities or a voyagé with the bike); planting things in the garden and seeing what pops up 6 months later, cutting bits of twig off plants and seeing whether it kills it or makes it stronger; DIY although it makes me cry sometimes.

My housemates and I are really into our cooking. Between the three of us we get through about 24 tins of tomatoes a month.
I’m really good at
Organising things.
Talking (best in English, OK in French, but I'll try any language)
Saying yes.
Rescuing plants from the brink of death
The first things people usually notice about me
People say my eyes. Or that I cycle in skirts and dresses (although I'm not really sure why that is something worth commenting on )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm currently reading a book called 'Cities are good for you' and various other books about cities and urban design etc. It's fair to say that I am interested by cities.

I love European cinema.

Music-wise, generally I like 6 music. I also like French music more than most French people do.

I love Italian food, and middle eastern food. My housemates and I have become a formidable culinary team.
The six things I could never do without
Plants - the greener the better
My bicycle, Hercules
Swimming/the ability to swim
Things that smell nice (coffee, jasmine flowers, toast and Christmas trees all rate highly)
A couple of years ago I would have said coffee, but I accidentally gave it up
Shampoo (I hate having greasy hair)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I used to spend a lot of time thinking about how I would move to France, but then that happened. Then I spent alot of time thinking about how I'd get the job of my dreams, and then that happened. Now I'm trying to buy a house, so I spend a lot of time thinking about that.

Edit: I have now bought a house, but job contract is coming to an end, which fortunately gives me something new to think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
I love going for a swim to mark the beginning of the weekend.
Red wine is often involved (it's a classic choice for many).
I'd love to say I'm jetting off to Europe, but that's hardly typical and much more of a special occasion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get embarrassed and blush a lot when people pay me compliments.
You should message me if
you don't want to spend hours talking to me online (hint: I don't want to send message after message and never meet up either)
