My self-summary
Londoner, brought up in a pub, did the university thing, will probably find some direction in the near future.

The fascinating (i hope) origin story:
Being the son of a pub manager meant when she changed job, we changed house, so I've moved more times than I can count. I reckon that's interesting, right? At least from a psychological standpoint, surely.
What I’m doing with my life
Killing time with tv shows, YouTube and drinking to excess. I exercise quite a lot too to mitigate the damage caused by the afore mentioned and because I actually somewhat enjoy it.

In the process of saving money to make a few extended visits to places I could see myself wanting to live. (California/NY/Tokyo/ somewhere in Austalia are the current frontrunners)
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at(/I enjoy) basketball, rock climbing, yoga, gymnastics and have a green belt in capoeira although I'm much better at drinking, marathoning TV shows and playing GameCube.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully the teeth. Got out of my braces not long ago and they cost me a small fortune so I'd like to think they were worth it.

Realistically it's probably the glazed over expression followed by the slurred speech and then the inevitable can of beer in hand that simultaneously ties together and explains the entire look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
The God Delusion, The Life of Pi, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time, Watchmen, Anything Dr. Seuss, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and a few Poker books. Not as interested in fiction since the pages stopped popping up to be honest.

Film:
I'm very familiar with the IMDB top 250 and I don't think there's really a film on there (that I've seen) that I haven't appreciated in some way or another but here's a spread of films that came to mind first although it's probably missing a few important ones I can't currently be bothered to remember- Anything Scorsese, Tarantino, Kevin Smith or Marvel related + Old Boy, There Will Be Blood, A Scanner Darkly, Fight Club, Cypher, Donnie Darko, LOTR, The Batman trilogy, American Beauty, Scarface, V for Vendetta, Whiplash, Birdman, This is England, Inception, The Shawshank Redemption, Blade Runner, Juno, Se7en, Lucky Number Sleven, Ip Man 1 & 2, Fearless, Hero, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dude Where's my Car?, Requiem for a dream, Watchmen, Akira, A Beautiful Mind, Drive, Disturbia, K-Pax, Mr. Nobody, The Fighter, The Garden State, The Master, Warrior, The Usual Suspects, The Place Beyond the Pines.

TV:
Archer, Rick and Morty, Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Mr. Robot, Orange is the New Black, This is England, True Detective, Luther, Mad Men, Trailer Park Boys, Sherlock, Community, Band of Brothers, South Park, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, Drawn Together, Pointless, Daredevil, The Mighty Boosh, American Horror Story, Californication, Breaking Bad, Dexter and a lot of anime. Plus If it's on Netflix I'll probably get round to it.

Music:
Inherited 360 vinyls that I'm yet to listen to so I imagine there'll be more to add to this list but here we go- Bonobo, Billy Woods, Flying Lotus, DOOM, Homeboy Sandman, Nirvana, Grimes, Death Grips, Santan Dave, RHCP, Shlomo, Lauren Hill, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Mala, Coki, Murlo, CASisDEAD, Bob Marley, Gorillaz, Digital Mystikz, JME, Preditah, Vince Staples, The Gaslamp Killer, Madlib, A$AP Rocky, Nosaj Thing, OutKast, Shabazz Palaces, Boylan, Four Tet, Clams Casino, Jon Hopkins, Kromestar, Pangaea, Om Unit, The Offspring, Wu-Tang Clan, The Temper Trap (because this one time on shrooms...), Pixies, Rustie, Violent Femmes, Notorious BIG, Pusha T, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, Souls of Mischief, Portishead, Tokimonsta, BADBADNOTGOOD, Dizzee Rascal, Kano and Kanye West (in moderation) will suffice as a reasonable insight to what I'm currently into but will give virtually anything a listen excluding the dregs of modern pop.

Food:
Recent convert to a not-so-strict brand of veganism after a lot of contemplation. I tailor my diet to avoid animal cruelty and to be overall more sustainable, this includes eating anything that would otherwise go to waste and I will eat an amount of animal produce that I deem sustainable, hence you won't catch me buying animal milk, cheese or eggs but I will eat a packet of maltesers in the cinema. Also, not the judgey/preachy type to get in your face for not eating the same, if anything I'm the envious type because I'm fully aware of how tasty meat and cheese are.

Sidenote:
I'd like to expand my horizons in all of these areas so if you've got any recommendations I'd be glad to hear from you.
The six things I could never do without
I mean I COULD do without these things but I'll play along:

Heavy nights accompanied by a large volume of water beside my bed the following day.

My watch. (Sentimentality not punctuality).

Clicky pencils with erasers.

The snooze button.

Exercise.

(Parentheses).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to maximize my happiness and, indirectly; the world's. The rest kind of fall under that umbrella phrase but here are some specifics:
Fitness; politics; money; religion; morality; fashion; festival season; moving to California/NY/Tokyo/Australia and how exactly that will work out; if I should sell my soul to a high paying corporation or become a raging hippie and teach rock climbing or something else outdoorsy; how much people who don't watch anime are missing out; if there's any other image that means enough to me to get it tattooed on my body; Smash Bros. Melee (if you know then you know); women and how much beard is enough beard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unashamedly inebriated.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My genuine middle name is Bam-Bam.
You should message me if
You can hold a conversation and spell to a reasonable degree. Be nice if we liked some/all of the same shit too but I'm not too picky in that regard so long as you're smart and have a nice face.
Bonus points for cynicism, logic, grammatical proficiency and a dark/dry sense of humour.
