Let's keep it real. and kind.
I am a friendly 20-something (post uni, pre career), grounded in nature, but revelrous in spirit. I consider myself open-minded, modest, an over-thinker, and an under-doer (Breaking Bad taught me to take 'no half measures'... but I'm still learning).
▪ I can dance like no one is watching.
▪ I buy more books than I read ▫ ▫ don't we all?
▪ I value correct spelling & grammar ▫ ▫ but won't be a nazi to others.
▪ I'm terrible at sleeping in ▫ ▫ but great at early starts.
▪ I appreciate TV show episode titles ▫ ▫ and despise TV commercials.
▪ I'd rather listen to new music on community radio or online ▫ ▫ than listen to Top-40 bs.
▪ I don't enjoy shopping for clothes ▫ ▫ unless it's tees from online.
For what it's worth... my personality type is: ISTP / ISFP

[last updated 27/4/14]
I've never traveled overseas (!!) (... I know), so to compensate I play out an exciting existence here in M-town. I love watching new and old films at the Nova, ACMI, and The Astor (RIP Marzipan). I enjoy checking out one-off festival events, screenings and other talks. During summer I may sometimes be spotted on the State Library lawn after work (yay for nanna naps) ... during winter I infrequently browse inside.
On Tuesdays I attend a pub choir out in Brunswick with some real nice folk. I love to sing and though I don't consider myself a good solo singer (karaoke aside).
On a whim I'm soon to start a short course in group-based improv (after seeing some at the Comedy Fest). I find the dynamic of entertaining others, and in a group, can be pretty thrilling. (update 24/7/25: 8 weeks in it's sure fun but a tricky challenge nonetheless!)

and started listening to Silver Mt Zion.

If you understand a profile can only scratch the surface of understanding anything about anyone.
Or just if you made it this far, it must count for something...
