I am a Practical, Dreamer who is a Realist and a Idealist (yeah some of those words are contradictory, but I often think people are a mass of contradictory drives that somehow work). I am an easy going down to earth guy with a live and let live attitude (although Love/Hate say it better) who calls things as he sees them and who trusts his instincts. I very often take the path of least resistance mainly as I often don't mind helping out, although if I am really against something I can be very stubborn. I am not perfect, what I am is flawed, imperfect, real and honest. I make mistakes but can discuss it and if I'm wrong I can admit it, apologise and learn from my mistakes. I really do believe that when I set my mind to things I can achieve just about anything I aim for, the last two years have been a period of great change and achievement for me physically, emotionally and academically and I am looking for that positive change to continue. I have just completed my retraining for an new career, which I am looking forward too. I am happy and content with my life as it stands and am in no hurry to change it, that said part of having a positive approach to life is being open to fortuitous happenstance.
I am in the process of moving back to Glasgow in search of the elusive social life I've been missing for the last three years, I am currently still living in Carlisle but as of the 7th of June I'll be home Viva Glasvegas!
I am also good for having a completely undeserved reputation for knowing people when I don't in fact know everyone, the phrase "ah know you" may have escaped my lips several times in my youth and is sort of my catchphrase now.
I like most movies from B-Movie Classics right up to indepth character pieces. I am not keen on gangster films but thats it's. I like romantic comedies, yes I am a man and I like romantic comdies there is no law against it. I like all the other standard stuff SciFi, Action Films stuff that makes you think and stuff you can just switch your brain off too. Though I do love a film with a clever plot that catches you off guard. My Tv Viewing is pretty much the same as my film viewing though I am a massive Dr Who fan Classic and Modern, Red Dwarf, Black Books, Spaced, Blackadder, Chewin the Fat ... I could go on but you are starting to get the picture.
Music again is very varied I am mainly into Rock/Goth Music though edging more towards rock these days on a daily basis. I listen to classical sometimes daft stuff like the Wurzels, rock, Metal and a little bit of pop on occassion just a wee bit of whatever I like which is bits of everything really. I have recently started listening to a little more older music since wanting to start Lindy Hop/Swing dancing but my life needs to settle a little first.
Food, I used to be as a child a terribly fussy eater, that however is no longer the case. I love going out and having a good meal I really love Mexican Food but like most kinds of food and "Love" eating out. I also rather enjoy cooking, I am not amazing but I can follow a recipe and cook a good few meals from scratch. I also find cooking very relaxing (the glass of wine while cooking may assist this relaxation) and find it a good wind down post work.
1) Friends & Family
3) Internet & Computer
4) My Bed (its utterly ace, money well spent)
5) Having Fun in it many varied forms
I am one of those people who hates not going somewhere or doing something because I am absolutely convinced that I am going to miss out on the *BEST* night ever!.
I often think about the direction this country is taking, Where I am going to buy a house and settle, how my mates are doing and how I am going to afford that 11k 2.3 Litre Triumph Rocket 3 Roadster.
