My self-summary
Hi, i'm Jay!

I'm graduated from university with a degree in English Literature. I live just outside of London which both sucks and is awesome at the same time.

I can be a little shy when meeting new people, but like to think that I open up and become a pretty decent guy when I get to know somebody. I'm easy to get along with and I value my friends a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I work as a Research Officer in London. Has absolutely nothing to do with my degree, but i've become very interested in this field of work, and it's something that i'd like to pursue further.

Outside of work stuff I'm big on movies, books and videogames, and always willing to try out new things. I also enjoy travelling, although I haven't managed to do much of it these days. But going on holidays and exploring new places is always fun!
I’m really good at
Probably talking! You'll know if i'm nervous because I talk really fast without noticing, but i'm usually pretty laid-back and will willingly talk about anything.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told my eyes. They're grey, which is pretty uncommon to have and I suppose my glasses enhance them a bit?
Other than that, it's usually the differing amount of facial hair that's always on my face. I'm terrible at shaving, so there's bound to be some scruff there at all times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Catcher in the Rye, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Catch-22, Private Peaceful, The Outsiders, Series of Unfortunate Events, Wuthering Heights, Kafka on the Shore.

Any Disney/Pixar/Ghibli (i'm a big animation fan), The Nightmare Before Christmas, Inception, The Avengers, (500) Days of Summer, Juno, Battle Royale, X-Men, The Silver Linings Playbook.

Friends, Parks and Recreation, Community, Grey's Anatomy, Game of Thrones, Miranda, Attack on Titan.

Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Spyro the Dragon, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem.

Anything, really. I switch between genres too much to pick any.

Some that have stuck, though: No Doubt, Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, All-American Rejects, Florence and the Machine, Marina and the Diamonds, and am also a big fan of old school Rock and Roll music. A friend of mine is currently trying to introduce me into the wonders of Korean and Japanese music. Not sure if it's working yet! :P

Almost anything. Willing to try any food at least once.
Six things I could never do without
My glasses (I'd spend forever walking into trees without them)
The Internet
Facial hair in the world (Not least of all because it would actually force me to get rid of mine.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do with the rest of my life, and how that's all going to turn out.
What book I'm going to read next in my mammoth to-read pile.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually i'll be sitting at home with a good book or a movie , but every now and again i'll escape to a club, bar or cinema with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pretend to love animals, but if I see a giant spider crawling across the floor, it will die and I wont feel that bad about it.
You should message me if
You think I seem like the kind of guy you'd like to get to know. It's pretty easy for me to enjoy doing something, so if a big interest of yours isn't on my profile, then chances are i'd like doing it if it's with a cool guy.

I'd like to think that I'm really easy to talk to, so don't be afraid to send me a message!
The two of us
