My self-summary
UPDATE: I am about to head off overseas for an indefinite period of time. So for those in Australia, I would still love to meet you but there might not be time for anything long term :)

I'm not in the habit of putting myself or others into boxes, but since it seems that I must.

Briefly; I consider myself to be an open minded person, looking to try new things and meet new people and see what happens.

What else? I am perhaps more of a geek than I like to admit to my non-geek friends, and at the same time less of a geek that I like to admit to my geeky friends.

I spent a good 9 months in South America a few years back, and I am trying to bring as much of my experiences into how I am living now. Things like meditating each morning, not trying to plan my future and seizing as many opportunities as possible.

I also recently went on a 10 day silent meditation retreat (Vipassana - for those who know it) which really helped me shift the way I think about the world, in an amazing way. Lots of getting rid of self-criticism, expunging past troubles etc. I'm mega keen to chat about it to anyone who is interested.

p.s. If you are interested in talking or finding something out about me or anything along those lines then Just Ask! I dont bite and I will honestly answer 99% of questions put to me
What I’m doing with my life
As many things as possible! Studying a bit of academia, working the odd job, playing some music/gigging, writing some ideas, writing some plays, failing at writing a novel... Volunteering. Just trying to branch out and see where life takes me.

I've just come back from 4 months volunteering in the Philippines, construction/carpentry based stuff for a disaster relief NGO. Good times all round.
I’m really good at
I'm a fairly good singer, I can dance when it is necessitated, I can hold my end of a conversation, I make really horrendous dad jokes...that should do it
The first things people usually notice about me
the way I talk...?
My rugged good looks?
my sarcasm?

Tough question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Looking at my bookshelf right now; I have a collection including Dostoyevsky, Bryson, Kant, Orwell, Woolfe, vonnegut, Mcarthy... etc. Im a medium reader trying to become a big reader.

Movies; I'm pretty open for whatever, but I do have a penchant for artsy type films or mega trash (we have a thing called Mediocre Movie Mondays at my place), Just one of the many dualities in my personality :P

Music; my general rule is styles (not necessarily artists) that came before I was born (thus no metal and the likes).
I love a bit of old folk and funk (Earth wind and fire,Dylan, Joplin, Ben Harper and co.), Right now into Old Crow Medicine show and Cat Sevens/Yusuf Islam, Punch Brothers, the Decembrists and Nickle Creek (since taking up the mandolin).... more to come :P

That being said I've plugged my radio back in and I'm loving the chance to hear some new stuff
The six things I could never do without
Passion for life
Something to put my ideas down on
Stimulating conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Time and its relation to motion, leading to thoughts of theoretical immortality and the likes.
If emotion is possible from solipsism and wanky shit like that.

Annoying paradigms that we live in and how to break out of them.

Life, self reflecting (perhaps too much), politics, philosophy, places I want to go in the world... I could go on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up late writing, or out at a party, or pretending to study, or something random.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will pretty much admit anything to anyone, most times. You just need to ask :)
You should message me if
I'm not too active with my use on this site at the moment, I'm tending to just respond to people messaging me. So if you want to talk to me, or me to talk to you, then initiating contact is the best way :) . I don' t know what it is but there seems to be this thing about guys always instigating the conversation (both online and in the external world). Considering we live in an open and relatively progressive(ish) country I dont see why this is still the case.

That being said, message me if you are interested simple as that :)

p.s I am inclined to want to actually meet you one day, so If you are just looking to chat online that is cool but perhaps we are looking for different things.

p.p.s I am much more likely to respond if you add a 'pop question', which is a random question for me to answer. It can be about anything, I promise to answer honestly :P
