My self-summary
I'm Alex. 26, though I neither look nor feel it.

I studied languages at university, and recently got my first post as a Spanish teacher.

When I'm not wondering how my kids -- sorry, students -- are performing, I'm trying to keep up with all things nerd: games, Netflix binges, and the occasional film with friends. I prefer pub nights to club nights, but if the company's right I'm down for anything.

Clichéd as it sounds, I really love to travel and see new places. I've recently got back from Paris, and I'm looking at where I can go next.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching Spanish to kids in South Wales by day; making sure my social life doesn't disappear by night.
I’m really good at
having a way with words. I'm a cunning linguist.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the Discworld series, Erast Fandorin novels, anything by Italo Calvino, detective novels, and books in translation.

Movies: Comic book adaptations, Woody Allen films, and world cinema. My all-time fave, though, is Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man.

TV: I'm in love with House of Cards, The (US) Office, Portlandia and The Bridge. For animated stuff, Bob's Burgers and Archer can do very little wrong. I'm currently playing catch-up with Mad Men, so no spoilers please!

Music: Literally anything. At the moment I'm listening to a lot of chart pop thanks to my commute, but I still enjoy many other types of music. And I'm always looking for suggestions.

Food: Fairly open-minded. If you can tell me why it's good, I'll eat it.
The six things I could never do without
Green Tea
A decent pair of headphones
Murakami's "What I talk about when I talk about running"
Travel & adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
*getting out of here and seeing new sights.
*how to make Spanish grammar exciting for 11 to 16 year olds.
On a typical Friday night I am
thankful it is Friday, ready to recharge in whatever way the world sees fit.
You should message me if
*you want to know more.
*you'd like to hang out.
*you actually read everything I wrote!
