My self-summary
Here we go:

I work in London as an administrator dealing with Committees and volunteers. Sounds boring, I know.

I like to learn new things all the time, so I have racked up some certificates over the years; City and Guilds award in Beginners Photography (I still very much like going out with my camera), Beginners British Sign Language (which I'm sad to say I've forgotten a lot of) and NVQ Level 1 Professional Catering. The last one was supposed to be career forming, but I've found I just love cooking and baking as a hobby.

I like the usual stuff; watching tv, reading, films, going out with my friends whenever they want to do something.

I also enjoy baking, a lot. It's my obsession, which my friends enjoy a lot as they tell me that what I bake tastes nice.

I like to try my hand at photography every now and again, but I tend to talk myself out of taking my camera out as I don't want to break it or annoy people with it.

I also like to try and stay active when I can; sporadic gym-goer when my commute lets me, snowboarder when the weather allows, obstacle course runner (Tough Mudder most recently)

So that's me in a nutshell, really.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in London, cuddling animals when I can, hanging out with friends... the usual I guess. Travelling when time and funds allow.
I’m really good at
Hmmm, really good?

I'm pretty good at baking (I know, I've mentioned that a fair bit)

I'm pretty good at building Ikea furniture (not sure if that's a plus or a minus)

I don't know, let's leave this one as a mystery - something to find out for yourself :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite quiet until I get to know someone, I'm not too good at the initial meeting. You would probably categorise me as shy.

Also, I'm rather short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite books change depending on what mood I'm in but I have a few that I will always go back to for comfort, you could say. These are any of the David Eddings series of fantasy books, 'Year of Wonders' by Geraldine Brooks, sad but interesting and also, sadly , the Harry Potter books. More recently and thanks to my best friend, Patricia Briggs books, especially the Mercy Thompson series. Amazing books.

Films; Again, depends on my mood but there are a few that I will rewatch again and again. Such films include 'Imagine Me and You', Moulin Rouge', 'V for Vendetta', 'The Princess Bride', etc. I'm rather fond of foreign language films, Studio Ghibli anytime, 'I've Loved You So Long' is really good, Guillermo Del Toro films as well, though they're creepier, so I watch them less.

Music; Well, now, I like most things, but let me think, what have I been listening to recently? Regina Spektor is awesome, Coheed and Cambria, i've rediscovered The Cranberries, and Tegan and Sara. I also love most musical soundtracks. And, on a less cool note, I like folk music, and it all started with Seth Lakeman. I think I just like the stories that get told in the songs.

Food... well I have to say I have a sweet tooth. I'm not too fussy when it comes to savoury food, i'll eat most things, except raw tomatoes and I'm a bit fussy about fish, but apart from that I don't overly care.
I love waffles. And have deliberately not bought a waffle iron for fear I would cook nothing else.
Six things I could never do without
1. Music - if I can listen to music while I'm doing something I will.

2. My pets. 2 dogs, Apollo and Misty. They're cuties and good puppers.

3. Books. Life would be so dull if I couldn't read.

4. Baking. There's nothing like baking to work out some frustration. Especially bread. =D

5. My passport - knowing I can travel to amazing places keeps me going. I may not be able to do it as often as I like but I'm always looking forward to a new adventure.

6. My family - they're not perfect but what family is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel to next; is there a gig happening anywhere; what films are coming out; what's on my to-do list at work (that last one's not that exciting but there's not enough hours in the day)
On a typical Friday night I am
At the cinema or chilling at home watching a film. Occasionally I might be out for some drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm my own worst critic.
You should message me if
Any of the above sounds interesting.
