What I’m doing with my life
Temping for the NHS. Menial admin work seems pretty darn sweet after a few years in retail! I don't have a plan. It's okay.
Ushering in my beloved local arthouse cinema, it will never make me rich but I have made some wonderful friends and seen some brilliant and baffling films.
I’m really good at
Talking about films and books and podcasts.
Being a good friend.
Getting shit done.
Making pictures.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dyed red hair, pretty dresses, socially awkward in an apparently endearing way.
Sociable introvert worth getting to know.

Being silly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have anxiety so everything, way too much! When I am feeling better then I love to be curious about the world and the people in it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working, often glad to be in a darkened room rather than out in the centre of Bristol with the weekend crowds!
Or maybe a gig or a dvd with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have had struggles with depression and anxiety and I still take medication for it. Actually it is really liberating to be honest about this and I am really passionate about raising awareness and fighting stigma.
I think most people know someone or they are that someone but we don't talk about it enough. I am really well and coping but I still have bad days.
You should message me if
You think we would get on, you like my photos, you like and respect women, you are open to meet someone for a relationship but are happy to hang out and see how things develop.
