My self-summary
Hi. Just to save a lot of you some reading, please can I draw your attention to the thing at the bottom of this page that says "new friends" and not any of the other possible options? Because seriously I just want some cool people to chill with.
(I'll totally consider pen-pals as well - there used to be an option for that)
What I’m doing with my life
Working in television, and realising Charlie Brooker was mostly correct about the whole thing, though when on the right project it is a very rewarding job.

But outside of the day-job, I'm just making it up as I go. I have a bad addiction to starting new things, and a bad habit of never finishing - constantly looking for new experiences and perspectives and entertainment in life.

I'm currently learning piano, and that I've managed to stick with it for four months is a complete surprise. If this continues I might sort-of-not-really-but-kinda not suck at it soon!
I’m really good at
Deconstructing the shit out of films, books, and music.

Growing a beard.

Achieving a decent life balance between spur-of-the-moment-fuck-it-I'm-doing-that and carefully-balanced decisions. (Honestly, both approaches are super important)

Making jokes that are really not funny, but somehow making them work and getting away with it.

Cheeky smiles.
The first things people usually notice about me
That would depend entirely on if they were drunk.

Six things I could never do without
A notebook (preferably with a pen, too!).
Toothbrush (you try getting by without one).
Pockets to keep all of the above in, except maybe the toothbrush (that can stay in the bathroom)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Left parting, right parting, centre parting or no parting? I mean, it's not like my hair's going to listen to me whatever I decide anyway..."
"Another friend just got married/had a kid/took out a mortgage/has started a pension - are they growing up too fast or am I growing up too slow?"
"Do I want to beat the high score and prove to everyone I rock ultimate or do I want to just play the next hot thing everyone says I have to play?"
"If I hit the snooze button again, will the 15 minutes extra sleep supercharge me so I can get ready for work 15 minutes faster?"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh no, I'm not playing this game! You first.
You should message me if
I dunno, maaaaan. Does any of the above sound like good qualities for someone you'd want to hang out with? I mean, seriously, you read this far so maybe something seemed somewhat appealing?

Look, I'll make this easy for you: with all the savings you get from having a friend with such varied taste in things, a "fuckit, I'll try that" attitude and roguish good looks (or just good looks if you don't like rogues), how can you afford to NOT message me?
(spoiler: you can't )

(Seriously, can I also stress the "friends" thing? I'm sure you're beautiful but I don't want in on your pants!)
The two of us
