My self-summary
I joke around, mess with friends, travel, read, draw, play ukulele and write a sciency blog. Next to my other gazillion hobbies, I am quite adept at entertaining myself.
What I’m doing with my life
I've finished a Master degree in Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences. It was a lot of fun and now I'm getting on with the rest of my life.

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!
I’m really good at
Imagining things. I'm a creative person at heart. I'm not necessarily good at drawing or writing or photography or playing the guitar or piano or any of the other 50 hobbies I have, but I'd be a very unhappy if I couldn't do any of them. I get fascinated easily by something, but I lose interest easily as well. This means that every week I want to learn a new skill, whether this be juggling or solving a rubicks cube or playing a song on the piano or cross-stitching.

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).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm happy.

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!")
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Discworld is my true love.

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 page :)

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
Six things I could never do without
-Music, or spotify
-The Internet
-Ample time to spend on my creative outbursts
-Games (Valve, how I love thee, let me count the ways.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, everybody thinks about life and decisions and future plans and what not.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home behind my desk, with spotify on volume 20 and surfing the web, drawing things in my sketchbook, writing a story, playing my guitar/ukelele/keyboard, reading a book, suddenly deciding I need to learn how to contact juggle, dancing with friends, solving rubik's cubes, humming along with my favourite song, playing poker, catching up with my favourite tv shows, having deep conversations with friends or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prefer The Beatles over the Rolling Stones :o
You should message me if
You're a funny, interesting person who just wants to talk to another silly person about similar interests. We can geek out over things together. Or you can take me on a holiday to Spain where we will have wild adventures and assimilate in the local culture.

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...
The two of us
