Disclaimer being at my fourth year, I do not have much time for holidays, and it is likely I will leave Cambridge (maybe UK) by the end of this year. Read the rest only if you are still curious and/or interested. (or skip to "you should message me" for further explanations)
Atheist, open minded, with socialist political views and an irrational attachment to foolish ideals. I like to discuss and argue a bit more than advisable: sometimes I just speak out what I have in mind and this might lead to disasters... but I do enjoy my intellectual freedom!
I am a bit more hesitant when it comes to take action: I do like adventures but not the ones that may lead to broken bones and composite fractures.
I like simple and healthy food, and every now and then I try to cook some dish. The result is usually edible.
I dislike the idea of cultural roles, in this sense I agree with feminists. Instinct pushes me into thinking in terms of stereotypes, but I always do that with high self-irony.
I struggle with my research, yearn for publications on scientific Journals, travel around, and try to figure out what to do with the rest of my life (always open to advice).
I have a good level of resilience, once I commit to something.
I hope that, being Italian, people notice that I am a bit more passionate and straightforward regarding many issues... try and ask me about politics :-P
However I don’t look as Italian as I should: for example, you will hardly see me drinking coffee or watching a football match.
Movies: I enjoy horrors, sci-fi and thrillers full of action and special effects. I also like movies with gloomy atmospheres and the ones related to the dark side of human mind. For example Tim Burton’s films, or movies such as Black Swan, Batman the Dark Knight, V for Vendetta and The Watchmen (but please read the comic, first!)
TV Shows: I like the unconventional ones, with a full storyline rather than episodes. I fondly remember Six Feet Under and The Shield . Lately I watched a bit of Breaking Bad. In general I like inner conflicts and characters struggling with their identities.
Music: a bit of this and that. In the past I really liked melodic Gothic, bands with chilling female vocalists like Nightwish, Tristania, Epica, etc. Now I tend to listen to folk, rock, indie. I don’t really have favourite bands or singers.
Food and (comfortable) housing
People to talk freely and open-heartedly to
( I own a Canon 60D: photography is yet another hobby I’d like to cultivate, any aspiring model out there? )
Also, being a feminist, I do not see dates as entertaining events in which to show off all the best I have (and much more) in order to impress a potential mate. I prefer authenticity and equality.
