My parents had no clue where they wanted to settle down when I was young, Melbourne, Amsterdam or New Zealand, so in the process of deciding they racked up a huge amount of debt and I got to fly 3 times around the world before I was 7, this was an easy sell whenever you had to play the introductory game of truth, truth, lie in school, (The lie was I have never had chicken pox)
When people tell me they had a "normal" Childhood I have no idea what they are talking about, I was enrolled in at least 15 different primary schools so I had to learn to adapt to people very quickly, it made me personality pliable, I'm thankful that over the last 8 years I've managed to find out who I really am.
Because kids these days love the keywords
I'm fiercely loyal to those I love
I'm usually Honest to a fault
I'm empathetic as hell which manifests itself in a lot of sighing... (I can't help it! it's like a coping mechanism or something)
Honesty is Sexy
I'm socially liberal but that doesn't mean I shut myself off to the other side, good ideas are good ideas regardless of where they come from,
I love to dress up and go to the nines for an occasion just as much as I love to relax quietly at home with a nice drink
Along with my Flatmates we are now Hosting Couchsurfers, a really wicked little project of world togetherness where you host travellers for free, I want to travel like this as you get off the beaten track and can experience the culture first hand,
I currently work for a printing comp...(record-scratch)
Scratch that, I quit my job september last year to figure out what I wanted my path to be, I now work as a bartender in a cool little place in Aotea Square, fantastic atmosphere and an incredible deck overlooking the civic centre, and I know what I want to be when I grow up!
my eventual goal is.
"To be a facilitator of people, granting them the ability to reach their entrepreanurial goals"
excuse the hubris, shameless self promotion time! I like to ride my bike, Box, play Guitar, Bass and my mates drum kit that he stores in my garage, I have fantastic taste in music (but then again, who doesn't right?) I'm expressive and open to trying new things,
I'm there for the people who need me and I do things for others not expecting anything in return, that last point kinda throws people who don't know me in this age of double meanings and hidden intent, I guess you could say I wear my heart on my sleave and i'm ok with that.
Actually on second thought... It's probably the full face moko.....
World war Z by max brooks, if you like anything zombie including the cranberries you should look this up, Who would have thought that Mel Brooks's son would be such a killer horror writer.
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, Rant and Choke
Richard Hammond: On the edge
Also some Clive Cusseler and Clive Mathew Wilson
I need to read more... Does the internet count?
I had a massive list here, but I read it over and thought that it might be a bit much, I love films, From big dumb ones to think pieces and everything in between... I'm a big sucker for rom-coms, (Good ones)
Also hunt down a copy of "The Room" it's completely horrible but fantastic at the same time,
Same deal with this, I love music, couldn't live without it, I prefer rock/blues/garage/alternative and pop but I do give most things a go before deciding whether to bag it or not.
Im not ashamed to say that I have a remixed lindsey lohan song, a Charlotte Church pop song, Freestylers push up and Smooth Operator by Sade on my MP3 player
My Ringtone is Low Rider by War and my alarm clock is baby on board by the be sharps from the Simpsons....
I wish Michael Jackson was still alive,
If he taught me anything it's that dancing in front of a group of women for 5 minutes will win any girls heart.
I love a good cover and appreciate great mashups, Popchop is brilliant
I listen to a few podcasts to distract me while at work,
Most notably This american life and the Giantbomb cast (it's a gaming podcast)
I don't watch much tv anymore, I do love British Comedy shows though,
I try and keep current on The Daily Show but I watch that on the net,
Game of thrones was captivating, Dexter, Breaking Bad and The Newsroom are the others that I watch with regularity
Food, variety is the spice of life, and Sunday is my domain, Sunday morning pancakes are the best.
I also play the videogames, that ain't gonna change, would love if you wanted to join in
Big ones out the way,
Sex, sure, could live without it, but im not going to become celibate anytime soon, and life is too short to live without good sex, so, yeah.
Laughter, I live with 5 of my best friends in a shared flat in Remmers, 3 girls 3 guys, we take the piss out of everyone and everything, if you can't laugh about it then you might as well quit it,
Good Company, I like to talk to absolute strangers at my job, I have met many fantastic people I now call friends, spending quality time with people and getting to know what they are about allows me to grow as a person and learn more about the world.
Exercise and Good food, I want to be a fit and healthy old ass man with a fucking cool life story, I have my vices that I enjoy, a bit of a sweet tooth.. But, I couple that with a broad range of quality meals, (i love cooking) that are healthy, and 8km runs every other day.
Music, need it, I need to listen to music, or play it, i have a 4x12 speaker cab with a 100 watt head hooked into my epiphone les paul right next to my bed,
All other 1st world shit, Car, money, job, etc.
you know... 70-30
(I don't have a full face moko)
I love Stephen Fry, Talk to me Stephen.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is the best Tyson, sorry Mike
If you don't mind getting your hands dirty, Or you play the drums, Any instrument for that matter, I'm useless at Guitar but i'm trying, I can't express how disappointed I was when I found out I wasn't the reincarnation of Jimi Hendrix.
If you agree that Saxophones are sexy, but only in a few select songs and Careless Whisper is probably the best song to come from George Michael
You appreciate a good ellipses... cause I use them all the bloody time
Making out to Angel by Massive Attack could be your idea of a good time...
And you want the words "Hella" and "Pash" to come back, unless used by guys older than 30 and/or drunk 20 year olds trying it on at the pub with the pick-up line that always seems to work at 2:30 "giz a pash love"
