My self-summary
I have an odd need to figure out how the world works. This means I spend a lot of time thinking about stuff and people watching, although I'm not entirely sure I understand what I'm looking at a lot of the time.

I'm kind of in a transitional place right now, so it's hard to say anything concrete about myself. What this means, in essence, is that I've figured out that there's things about myself that I'm not overly fond of, so I'm taking steps to change them.

There is one immutable fact, that will hopefully be a selling point: I am a geek, as a previous foray into the mire of trash culture has apparently proven.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm used to beemployed as an IT worker in the Arts sector. It's not as much fun as it sounds (unless it sounds like it's not particularly fun but does have its moments - in which case, you're spot on)

Now, I'm doing a double degree in Economics and Anthropology, just for something completely different.

In non-work terms, I get out an about on my bike when I can, partly for the health benefits (see the above bit about taking steps to improve my life) and partly because there are times where I can get lost in it, especially if I'm riding alone listening to music and letting go of the world.

I have developed something of an addiction to traveling around and seeing new things, to the point where I pretty much only have a job to finance my adventures.
I’m really good at

I guess my secondary skill would be making things break in new and interesting ways.

The first things people usually notice about me
I am Groot!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Listing all of my favourite movies would take too long... I like a lot of movies, but I'm not especially original. Random titles from the DVD rack include Cube, Donnie Darko, Requiem For A Dream and Big Trouble In Little China. I also honestly think Crank and Machete may be two of the finest movies ever made.

I'll pretty much listen to anything, but mostly New Order, Ladytron and The Decemberists... with a little Bach and NWA just to keep things interesting.

I read a lot, mostly sci-fi. Some favourites are Neal Stephenson, Kurt Vonnegut, Sean Williams, Truman Capote, David Zindell for the prose and Warren Ellis, Brian Azzarello, Garth Ennis, Brian Wood for graphic novels (I won't get snippy if you call them comics). I also read a lot of pop economics (Freakonomics and the like) and recently finished The Omnivore's Dilemma.

I'm not too fussy about food, in fact, I'm quite lowbrow gastronomically. Olives, Mushrooms and Avocado are all things I have no time for, however.
Six things I could never do without
1. The occasional adventure 2. Something to read 3. People to talk to (at, sometimes)

I'll let you know when I find the last 3.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I honestly don't know most of the time, but I do spend a lot of time thinking...
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like dancing, but seriously doubt my ability.

Oh, and I never learned how to drive until last year, but I have a car and some fancy P Plates now!
You should message me if
You have a dog (preferably a dachshund) and don't mind that I'll probably be more openly affectionate with it than you for a while.
