My self-summary
Hey there. I'm Ben.

I'm a fairly amiable, absent minded kind of a guy. PhD researcher at kent unj, and just moved to own little place just outside Canterbury.

Im a fan of geeky things and the countryside. A good book, film/tv series, gaming, and my computer. So basically anything with a good story, or involving a computer...yeah a little nerdy. I spend a fair amount of time relaxing in a pub with friends, but I am not the clubbing type.
What I’m doing with my life
Very important academic-ey type things.
Nah, I spend my days fiddling about with software, programming, and reading papers.
I’m really good at
Reading, daydreaming, and working too hard I've been told, especially when i have a deadline due...and i thought i was lazy.
The first things people usually notice about me
My stunning good looks?...You would have to ask people. Although feel free to share your first impressions with me

I've been told by friends that I am in fact a really nice and kind guy...this came as a surprise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and i'll admit to being mainly a fan of sci-fi/fantasy genres. Anything by Robin Hobb, Jim Butcher, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman Brendon Sanderson (the list goes on) are always good, or whatever i happen to pick up....

I'm a big film/tv fan and my tastes are pretty much the same (sci-fi, fantasy, or comic adaptations), although i enjoy a good comedy as well. I like to go to the cinema when I can to catch the lates film. Amongst my favourite tv are some classic series such as Firefly, Red Dwarf, black books, stargate and various classic comedies. I also approve of all the new series that have been coming out recently as well (Game of thrones etc). I have been starting to get back into anime a little recently as well...

I'm going to add a games section here. Although I often have other stuff I should be doing these days I still like gaming sessions. I'm a PC gamer, and enjoy rpg's and games with strong storyline (Bioshock, Skyrim, etc). I'm also a fan of coop gaming. Dragon Age Inquisition is currently my new gaming obsession.

I'm not too fussy about music. I generally enjoy rock/metal, but i also enjoy a bit of folk, classical, etc. As long as its NOT drum and bass, rnb, rap, or the like. Particular favourites include AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Airbourne, The Answer, etc.
Six things I could never do without
1. Books
2. Family and friends.
3. Bit of open space/quiet
4. Computer.
5. The sci-fi genre probably
6. ...vital organs are pretty important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Research: what I need to do, how to do it, and how to avoid doing it
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends; gaming, reading, watching a movie, hanging out with friends in the pub...usually the latter lest I get complained at. What an action packed life I lead
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My reasearch is in swallowing. Make of that what you will. I've tried it as a pick up line before, which didn't go so well.

...Also, I'm kind of shy
You should message me if
You don't mind a little eccentricity, and might find me getting tongue tied endearing
The two of us
