I got my first job in Utrecht, and moved there from Groningen. After 2,5 years I decided to get back into academia and applied for a PhD position at Radboud University, where I started earlier this year. For this reason I very recently moved to Nijmegen and am planning on getting to know the city and its people!
This also means I have a vast array of (semi) useless skills. ("Look ma! I can shuffle a deck of cards in a fancy way!")
There are just too many fun things to do out there and too little time to learn all of them or learn them all well.
The things I stick with most though, are drawing, writing, photography and playing my ukulele (badly).
People say I always look on the bright side of life, apparently to such an extent that some of my friends are betting on when I will snap and cry for 6 months straight ("No-one can be that happy!")
Movies: That's a hard one. I watch movies religiously. It's hard to compare genres. But if I have to name, say, three; Magnolia, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, Lost in Translation.
TV shows: Dr Who, Community, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Brooklyn Nine Nine,
Instead of naming all the music that I love, here's a link to my last.fm page :) www.last.fm/user/amhil
Food:I like almost anything, except, maybe, mussels.
Games Half-life 2, L4D(2), Portal(2), Discworld MUD, Serious Sam, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Terraria, FTL, Don't Starve, DayZ, Project Zomboid
-Ample time to spend on my creative outbursts
-Games (Valve, how I love thee, let me count the ways.)
Ignoring those things, I spend a lot of time thinking about stories. Random imaginary movie scenes and story plot lines. Sometimes I write them down, usually I don't. I get inspiration for these from the oddest places and on the least opportune moments. I just drift off in my thoughts.
DON'T MESSAGE ME IF: You're homophobic, racist or sexist.
I'm pro abortion, euthanasia, gay marriage, and so on. If these things bother you, or your opinion differs significantly on these important social issues, messaging me probably won't result in a reply.
I unfortunately had to put up this disclaimer because plenty of people on here obviously clash with me on these issues. They are very important to me, so with this warning I'm hoping that no one is wasting their time...
