My self-summary
I love books and RPG games. I don't get much time to play games these days but I do read a lot on my Kindle or the Kindle app on my phone.

Aside from indoor hobbies I love to get out and explore the countryside in a leisurely manner.

I work in the archive department for a 24 hour news channel. This means I work ridiculous hours some weeks.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, mostly.
I’m really good at
Reading books really fast. I have a very good long-term memory and I enjoy learning new things.

I would like to be better at riding and speaking foreign languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
My feet rarely stop moving. I'm a fidget.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by any of these authors or someone like them-
Peter F. Hamilton, Katharine Kerr, Steven Erikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont.

I have studied Ancient Greek and Latin literature for my degree and love Classical Greek tragedy, especially Euripides, and the Latin poets Catullus, Ovid, and my favourite, Tibullus.

I'd like to reread: Dante's 'The Divine Comedy', Milton's 'Paradise Lost' and everything by Maragaret Atwood.

Music: Can vary wildly from the cool indie-ish stuff to the wildly embarrassing. I love-
Muse, Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, Smashing Pumpkins, Queen, New Pornographers, Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis, Freezepop, The Foo Fighters.

Film: Don't take me to see Warhorse, I will bawl. A couple of my favourite films are the original 'The Karate Kid' and 'the King's Speech'. I do enjoy silly films like 'The Fifth Element, 'Hot Fuzz' and the new Sherlock Holmes films. I'd rather watch a comedy than a horror film. I would like to explore more foreign cinema beyond 'Amelie' and 'Y tu Mama tambien'.

Food: I'll eat most things. I do love and will go to great lengths for-
Chocolate, licorice, Asian food, seafood, barbecue ribs, good coffee
The six things I could never do without
-A diary or the calendar app on my phone to keep myself organised.

-Something to read. I love my Kindle.

-Good food

-Seeing green fields and trees

-The Radio/Music

-Coffee in the morning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, my brain never shuts up. I also have a bad habit of making stories up in my head and never writing anything down.
On a typical Friday night I am
I work shifts so I don't have a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you can ride a horse and quote Latin love elegy I might have to marry you.

(Wait! Stop!)
You should message me if
You are- a well-adjusted, moderately geeky person of a similar age.
