My self-summary
I'm Josh.

... What, more?
I'm a feminist, a liberal socialist and a vegetarian. I love intellectual, political and ideological discussion.

I'm after someone who can hold a good debate and will challenge me but doesn't take themselves too seriously. I am horrifically sarcastic and love to take the piss. If I'm harsh to you, don't be offended: it's how I show you I like you in my own simple way!

I'm hoping to one day be a writer but before that, I plan to move around the world teaching English as a foreign language.
Fingers crossed, eh?
What I’m doing with my life
... Dad?

I honestly have no idea.

Ok, I'll give it a go:
I'm an English Literature graduate (as of this year) and have just returned back home to sunny Manchester after spending 3 years living in London
I'm trying to learn as much as I can about how our culture functions so I can write something interesting and meaningful.
I try to spend my time studying but that usually ends up gaming or watching Breaking Bad with friends: I'm a chronic procrastinator.
I don't get out as much as I should and really want to change that (dates, anyone?).
I’m really good at
Gaming! Particularly Team Fortress 2. I should be, I have over 300 hours clocked on that game (what a loser).
Also, Guitar Hero.

Gaming aside, I think I'm good at dissecting and interpreting stories; books, TV shows, movies, etc. This is pretty much what my degree is about. I'm hoping to use this skill to put together a decent story of my own. I've dabbled in a bit of writing and produced one or two things I'm happy with. Also some things I'm not.
The first things people usually notice about me
My significant lack of goat horns and legs outside of Halloween
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Sword of Truth Series, Never Let me Go, Time Machine, Discworld, Lolita, Fight Club, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The Walking Dead, Marvel, DC, Brave New World

My favourite genre is Progressive/Symphonic/Power Metal: Rage (favourite band), Rhapsody, Iron Mask, Korpiklaani, Primal Fear
But I like some more popular stuff:
Kings of Leon, Muse, Radiohead, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Nirvana, Jonathan Coulton, Jon Lajoie, Tim Minchin, Tenacious D, Foo Fighters
Music is really important to me

Video Games:
The Half-Life series, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Team Fortress 2 (my favourite game!)... Anything Valve does, to be honest...
Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Prototype, GTA V, Guitar Hero, Star Wars: Battlefront, Limbo, Mortal Kombat, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City
Six things I could never do without
Laptop, Xbox, Friends, Sex, Reason, Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of humanity
Evolution and how we got to the point we're at now
Shooting zombies
What it would be like to be telekinetic
How to do this whole 'adult' thing
Whether or not I'm wasting my time
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my flatmate, smoking a doobie and watching a movie/show/David Attenborough documentary.
Or drinking at a bar.

As it is currently Friday night, I guess I'm kind of obliged to begrudgingly add 'editing my OkCupid profile'.
... Make of that what you will.
You should message me if
You want to want to agree or disagree with my politics/opinions. I'm always up for a good debate! As long as it stays a debate and doesn't become an argument.

You want to know more, I guess...

Unless you send something malicious or dull (like 'Hi.' or something) I'll respond :)
The two of us
