I have a geography degree and as such I like the great outdoors. My friends have recently taken to referring to me as an outdoorsy type and I guess that between cycling a lot and being involved in ScoutingI probably am. I used to go to a lot of festivals but money meant I only went to one last year, and I didn't even buy the ticket for that...
I'm an intersectional feminist, I care about equality across all oppressions. Please don't message me to argue about feminism. We obviously wouldn't get on.
I also like making things with my sewing machine and wool and am the queen of the homemade birthday present.
What else am I doing? My best friends live in Bath so I spend a lot of time there and in Bristol. I can usually be found lesson planning or writing an essay at the last minute at the moment. When I'm not chained to my laptop I like walking along the seafront, going to the pub for a gin and tonic or a real ale and playing board games.
I'm an awesome babysitter. Don't read that as "wanting babies" or anything. God no.
Apparently I'm pretty good at crafts, which given I'm dyspraxic is some weird quirk of nature. If you date me I will probably crochet you a hat.
TV, I like Orange is the New Black, Portlandia, Peep Show, Misfits, Skins, Coast, Spaced, Shameless, Gavin and Stacey, Community and any programmes that involve geography and nice landscapes (see my degree). Also most of Netflix, like any other 20 something. Kimmy Schmidt is the best.
My favourite films are Human Traffic, Made in Dagenham, One Day, 24 hour party people, Brick, Little Miss Sunshine, Juno, Studio Ghibli stuff (just so you know, I'm not really that bothered about Japanese culture otherwise), About a Boy, Submarine, Atonement, The Breakfast Club and pretty much anything with Simon Pegg in it.
Food, well anything veggie really, apart from nut roast. Quite a fan of chinese food and stir fry, and not too hot curries. I'm quite happy to eat pizza though.
Musically I'm probably one of the biggest Belle and Sebastian fans you'll ever meet. I also like Courtney Barnett, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Laura Marling, The Levellers, The Smiths (obviously), Bob Dylan (but of course) amongst lots of others. I occasionally write reviews for a music website but I'm quite lazy about this. I sort of live for Radio 6music.
3.My bike, all the cool kids use them
4.My 16-25 railcard
5.My iPad (secondhand but very portable)
6.Music, especially live.
Also not a real red head. Duh.
If you message me once and I don't reply within a few days that likely means I'm not interested. Sorry. Don't continue to message me!
