At first, I can be a bit reserved around people I don't know very well, but once I get comfortable with others, I'm friendly and enjoy getting to know people and having a good chat, preferably accompanied by a nice beer or two :)
I love reading, writing, listening to music and spending time with friends, old and new.
I think I'm pretty good at getting along with most people - I spent over a year flatting with six very different people and succeeded in staying on good terms with almost all of them, so that was quite an achievement, I thought!
I think I tend to be able to see things from different angles which means that if people come to me for advice, I can sometimes be quite useful at pointing out different ways to approach a problem. This is also a handy skill when studying history :)
I'd have to say Tarantino movies are some of my favourites. Not that fond of more basic, straight up action movies as they tend to be a bit predictable, but every now and again I guess they're okay. I enjoy watching comedies, horror, drama, thrillers and anything that is done in an interesting way or has exceptional acting.
Shows: Some of my favourites are Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy and some of the Adult Swim cartoons like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Sealab 2021, just cos they're so weird and random. British comedies often crack me up, including Brasseye, League of Gentlemen, The Mighty Boosh, Peep Show and Snuffbox to name a few. I also watch documentaries sometimes if they look cool, particularly shows about animals or society.
Music: I have pretty varied musical tastes, I think - mostly classic rock, bluesy/folksy stuff and different kinds of metal would be what I sorta grew up listening to though. Stuff I like includes Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Mogwai, Electric Wizard, Cat Power, Tenacious D, Tool, The Offspring, Queens of the Stone Age, Sleep, Om, Alt-J, Refused, Sublime, The Kills, The Dead Weather, Deep Purple, Godspeed You Black Emperor! and The Prodigy.
Food: I'm not really too particular about what kind of food I eat. It just depends what I feel like at the time. Lasagne, bolognese and risottos are a few of my favourite meals though. Also fish, but that is about all that I will eat from the sea, lol.

I'm a pretty friendly guy really, so if you want to chat just say hello and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)
