My self-summary
My biggest passions in life are reading, music and politics. I also like going for walks in beautiful places and exploring new towns and cities, playing PC games with friends, playing bass (well) and guitar (badly) and cuddling up with someone and watching a good TV series. I also like to go traveling as much as I can.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a history student, I'm planning to carry on studying modern history once I complete my degree as I find all history fascinating and modern history is the part that I find best helps to understand why the world is like it is today.
I’m really good at
I'm good at not losing my head in a crisis.

I'm also not bad at playing bass.

I've been told I'm a good listener and I like to think I put other people before myself when they are going through a rough patch.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't really have any one favourite food.

Some of my favourite books are Crime and Punishment, Meditations, Frankenstein, Terry Pratchett's Discworld Series, Great Expectations, A Picture of Dorian Gray, A Song of Ice and Fire series, LoTR, Homage to Catalonia, Candide and various historical, philosophical and political books. I really enjoy reading and discussing books, especially ones that have had a big impact on me.

I like lots of different music, I'm not really into clubby dance music but apart from that I like most things. So instead of listing genres or favourites I'll just say the artists I've listened to a lot recently; Neil Young, Hendrix, Black Angels, Stones Roses, Madvillain, Led Zep, Simon & Garfunkel, Yo La Tengo and Portishead.

Some of my favourite TV series at the moment are Breaking Bad, Fawlty Towers, Community, Star Trek: Next Generation, Deadwood, Arrested Development and Futurama.
The six things I could never do without
Music, books, bass, pen, paper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The books I'm reading, politics and the world around me. I like having long conversations with people whether they are serious or light-hearted.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends but definitely not clubbing. Maybe going out with friends for drinks or watching a good film/TV series with someone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently accidentally shaved my hair quite short when trying to trim it and it's still in the process of growing back. I told everyone I meant to do it.
You should message me if
You want to meet sooner rather than later. I think going out with someone for lunch or drinks and just seeing how it goes is the easiest way to work out if you have any "chemistry" with someone.
