My self-summary
Hey. I guess I'm a fairly silly, down to earth kind of guy. I'm pretty laid back and relaxed. At heart I'm a decent dude and can be downright cuddly. People tend to come to me for advice so I guess there is some wisdom rattling around in the old noggin'. I'm pretty quiet initially, but once I get a read on my situation I tend to become a bit of the life of the party.

I pride myself on being able to relate to most people and often make it my mission to get a laugh out of someone. I'm often described as joking until proven serious. But once you get past most of the stupidity and brovado you'll find a sentimental, class act who you'll probably like more for his serious side (although there is some debate amongst my cohorts about whether that side actually exists and I'm not just setting them up for a long term joke).
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm doing a Psychology phd.
Being the resident cool tutor in the Psych department.
Also I'm somewhat of a volunteer crisis counsellor.
And trying to keep fit by going to the gym (my most hated of places).
I’m really good at
Video games (wonder if those two are linked)
obscure Simpsons quotes,
Dancing badly,
taking the piss,
getting on a soapbox,
speaking about and debating irrelevant and often downright silly, obscure topics.
This is going to sound corny as all hell but I'm also a damn good listener. I don't judge and I genuinely give a shit. It is both a skill and a cross to bear.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually the group of people I'm with laughing, either at me or with me I'm never quite certain.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite books are probably still the Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit but I credit the Harry Potter series for getting me back into reading. Also love me some Orwell, Shakespeare, Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Poe, Dahl...among others.

If I go into movies we'll be here all day. But if you twist my arm here's a cross-section of movies I like. The Godfather, anything by Kevin Smith, Empire Records, Billy Madison, LOTR, Ghostbusters, Dark City, Dawn of the Dead, The Dark Knight, Star Wars, anything animated, Dead Poets Society, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory....oh there's so much more.

TV: right now Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Arrow, The Flash, Breaking Bad (believe the hype), 30 Rock, The Daily Show, HIMYM, and I could go on...especially if we're talking non-current. Special mention to Buffy and Angel, that's how you do modern vampires people!

Music: probably old school hip hop, R N' B, I still like most of the stuff I grew up on and as such my car stereo is either perpetually stuck in the 90s or that of a middle aged african american man (I also use terms such as stereo). But, not a huge music guy so open to suggestions.

Food: Probably Italian or most Asian. There's not much I don't eat/enjoy. I'm not a fan of the term foodie, but I guess that's how I could be described, I'm more just a try anything once type.
Six things I could never do without
Stimulating discussion (normal bores me)
My mind
Something to write with
The Western Bulldogs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life, my thesis, getting a tattoo, where my socks are, the shape of my head, trying telekinesis, writing a book, wishing I could do a backflip, who would win a fight Superman or the Hulk, whether I should leave town in pursuit of an adventure, giving up university to become a masked Luchadore named El Micko...
On a typical Friday night I am
Out (rarely nowdays), or watching the footy (AFL). Go Doggies!
Sad reality is most likely working/procrastinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really quite like chick flicks and antique stores. The curse of growing up an only child with mostly female cousins...

Otherwise, ask me I'll probably tell you...
You should message me if
If you like nice if slightly (okay majorly) nerdy guys, laughed at any part of my profile (even the stuff that wasn't supposed to be funny), or want to talk about anything that piqued your interest, or anything really, I can't be offended and always up for a fair rant.
The two of us
