Other things I quite like include long walks in all environments, that board game café in Haggerston, befriending animals, brunch, coming across really good design or architecture, scrambling, cooking for people, having my wits tested, and seeing happy children or good things in general.

Nevertheless. Smart, ambitious, kind - looking for similar.
Trying to get out more.
Not exactly gifted at small talk and actually allergic to banter.

Books: Tend toward modernism and postmodernism. Poststructuralism is fun to think about.
TV: I know there's lots of great TV but I don't watch it. I get fidgety. I am open to being converted on this.
