My self-summary
I love waking up in a warm bed with nothing to do that day but go out and walk. I love going to the gym and feeling drained and sore in the best way. I love coming up with ridiculous plans for the future. I love the feel and smell of new books.

I love learning about history, art and politics. I especially love talking old myths and am looking into anthropology. I love just walking around an old city with no destination just to appreciate what the architecture is like. I also think that practical ethics is just as, if not more, important than philosophy.

I love meeting up with friends and I especially love going to chinese resturants and never quite knowing what I ordered. I love a drink and am always up for going out to the pub for a quick half at the very least.

Other than that? I am just generally trying to carve out a place for myself in the world whilst being a good person. It's sometimes a bit hard, but it's always a good laugh once it's done.

Hopefully will see you around.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I am working on board the Cutty Sark. I work as a Visitor Assistant and that generally means a lot of admissions, retail and learning a load about the ship I work on. It's a great job, but I am enjoying the stuff I do on board ship most of all.

Other than that? Well I have only just moved to London, so I am doing as much exploring as I can on my days off and evening, and since moving out I am keen to look into gym going and having a decent number of nights out.
I’m really good at
Learning. I love knowledge and I really enjoy being able to take in different sources of information and then use them and discuss them. I just love getting to grips with new knowledge and finding new stuff out about things I think I know.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent. I have a rather posh accent for no apparent reason. My family isn't posh and none of them sound in the least bit like me, but for some odd reason I sound like I have stepped off a BBC radio broadcast from the 1950's.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well my books are a bit on the nerdy side. Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman you know, the usual. I do like trying to read some of the classics though, if only to be able to talk about them afterwards.

Movies? I am trying to find some of the classical films and watch those too, its always interesting to see where the modern ideas about film have come from. That said? I don't think anyone ever turns down the option of watching a scary movie or laughing at a dreadful one.

My music tends to be a bit scattershot, one of my favorite bands is probably Eels if only because of the sheer difference in moods that the songs go through, alongside that I am trying to widen what I listen to, getting stuck on just one things always seems a bit of a waste.

Food tends to be anything healthy that can be made fast, so a lot of oriental stuff. I've got a soft spot for oriental stuff from stalls at Greenwich market, it might not be the best but damn is it fast and satisfying
Six things I could never do without
I think that things like family/friends etc don't really count here, because who the hell lives without human companionship?

My Laptop
A nice hot shower every morning
My wok
A new beer every week.
My swimming gear
My books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics (especially anything to do with the interaction of Media and politics), a bit of philosophy and ethics, and things I need to be getting on with.

The first two are generally more important in a general sense, but you've got to leave some time to think about what you need to get done today. Otherwise you just end up having some brilliant theory on politics but you look like you've been dragged backwards through a hedge.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing a bit and preparing for work. I generally have to work weekends, so I take my nights out (big nights out anyway) at any time when I have a couple of days off.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once got a job by reciting a poem at the interview.
You should message me if
You fancy going out for a meal or a drink.
The two of us
