As you will guess, I have a soft spot for quirky stories, and the fun is in making them. Strange, wild tales such as hulahooping to ambient whalesong in a squatter hellhole or seeing a band that only plays songs from '90s cartoons of course, but a spot of tea and a B-movie (Turkish Star Wars owns) work just as well if you word it in the proper manner. Don't call it mundane, call it fundane.
Sometimes I put the pro in procrastination, but I'll work on it tomorrow. I can also be scatterbrained: that's probably how I'll end up whenever that much-anticipated World War Z hits.
I get my exercise by dancing rock 'n roll (rock4temps, to be precise), because it has lots of spinning around that looks very fancy very quick. This could be you, dancing fever and all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUFJnBemgp8
I run a student dancing group at my student association, so a safety helmet is not needed.
Culture is something you do in my opinion. I write for various student rags, and now also JASON Magazine, Trigger Warning and Prymates. I also volunteer at lots of events and festivals in small ways, and the most recent ordeal is manual Facebook sharing for music festival because I have so many friends. You can usually find me bartending, lugging trash or doing other menial tasks that greatly satisfy my twitchy nature.

*A bike/public transport, because there's no such thing as free parking outside of Monopoly.
*A world wide web filled with endless new insights into human folly and vice.
*Hertog Jan and Liefmans Fruitesse for the summer eves.
*Headwear and props, because half-arsing costume parties is life.
*A Wii, because of the pick up 'n play aspect. Always good to shove the controller into the hands of a fresh person and see them adapt in a few minutes.
If not at a party, I'm probably scrounging the internet for fangames/mods (currently having fun with the Dutch-made RPG Exit Fate) and parody vids.
This weekend has Popronde's finale in Amsterdam, plus a druid theme party to which I went to dressed as a lumberjack (someone has to cut down all the Ents).
...you want to try a Thing and need wry commentary along for the ride. If you don't know a Thing, I will gladly provide one (f. ex. World Pillow Fight Day, polka gigs in bars, culty food fairs, volunteering at riot police training, etc.).
...you like your politics nitpicky and esoteric. Forget left and right, try marxist accelerationism versus anarcho-futurism.
