My self-summary
I'm a quiet, unassuming individual who it's easy to mistake for normal ;-) I like to read, and you'll often find me internetting away and watching tv.

I wish I sportsed more and it's something I'm looking forward to getting back in to. I enjoy dance, rock climbing and tramping and am always looking for buddies to do these with.

I'm passionate about life and new experiences, and I want to travel more.
I'm also passionate about science, politics, art, all that good stuff.

Very very hesitantly bi so if there are any understanding and confident bi chicks/lesbians reading this, I'm open to chatting.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm a dole-bludger, taking a break from a string of high stress jobs to sort myself out. My last few years I've been doing chemistry and quality assurance work in the pharmaceutical and dairy industries.
I've finally decided to apply for my teaching diploma and I've started helping kids study for their exams
I’m really good at
Pub Quiz Nights. As long as it's not about mainstream sports I'm good (although if they start asking Gymnastics questions watch out!)
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile! Cheesey but true.
I'm also told I can come across a bit stand-offish, which confused me a bit. I think I'm just reserved and people interpret that their own way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Jane Austen, Pratchett and Gaiman novels, Brave New World, Day of the Triffids, the Axis trilogy, Sword of Truth series, Philip K Dick, LotR., Chocolat. I go in for Fantasy mostly, with a little SciFi.

Classical music is underrated - you tell me the most fun thing you've done to Vivaldi's Four Seasons and I'll tell you mine.

Food: Mediterranean and Thai ^^
Six things I could never do without
The Internet
Hot drinks
My at-home pharmacy - sick? injured? I got you covered
My dressing gown
Strong breezes on perfect sunny days. Considering moving to Wellington actually, blow away the cobwebs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's going on in other people's heads. Also, the fate of the world and justice.
People I'd love to have coffee/wine with would include: Richard Dawkins, Stephen Fry, Kate Winslet, Brian May. Bernie Sanders would be fun to get to know off the record.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a beer, and wondering what to do over the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like reality TV. I have watched America's Next Top Model. A lot.
I also recently got introduced to RuPaul's Drag Race :-O
