I'm easy going, open minded, quite deep but not too serious. I like to be stimulated so i have (and have had) numerous interests, none of which i spend an inordinate amount of time on. This has left me knowing a little about a great deal but not a great deal about anything.
I can be pretty internal but there's plenty underneath the surface. Sometimes a prod is required to break the surface tension of the bubble.
I work in metallurgy which isn't half as interesting as it sounds.
I am pragmatic, thoughtful, situationally hedonistic and tenacious
Books - I have always read. If I scan my bookshelves, there lies a potted history of my life thus far. I started with mainly fantasy, science fiction and folklore but quickly grew to love classical literature. In recent years I find myself more interested in the factual rather than the fictional, but it's mainly concerned with expanding knowledge of science and British history. However, I still maintain an (un)healthy collection of graphic novels.
Movies/TV - Anything that constitutes good cinema and quite a lot that doesn't too. I very rarely watch television channels but I do watch a great many films and will occasionally devour box sets in a couple of sittings. I guess you could say I watch with willful aforethought. For an idea of the kind of things I like, refer to the section above on books.
Music - Eclecticism is the word here (and a very good word it is too). Music is a very important part of my daily life and something I could not do without. It would be true to say that much of what I listen to is ostensibly rock orientated but I can turn my ear to most genres with one or two exceptions. For instance, mention reggae and I will look like a man sucking upon a lemon, mention manufactured pop and I will no longer be in the room.
Food - After a lifetime of omnivorous eating, I've recently decided to remove meat from the equation. This is entirely an ethical choice, born of an abhorrence of intensive farming methods. I have always tried to buy responsibly, but my conscience has been pricked to the point where this seemed the logical progression. I have a great love of food, so it's an interesting prospect to alter old habits and reevaluate my epicurean ideals.
