My self-summary
Hey, I'm Ben! An explorer at heart with a wit like a good martini, quick and dry. I love to laugh with my friends and sometimes at myself, because laughter makes a good day great and a bad day just that little bit better.

I love the stars, the unknown and learning new things. A bit reserved by nature but I love to talk about something, nothing, and everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm in my first year of a new degree with the aim of a complete career change. I used to work in the IT industry but in the end it wasnt for me, so I'm now studying astronomy and astrophysics. In a few years I want to be out in the world exploring the universe and discovering something new!
When I'm not studying I'm usually learning a new recipe to try with my friends or playing games with them either online or around a table.
I’m really good at
Cooking, at least at an amateur level anyway. Whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner I can put together something delicious and (usually) pretty healthy too.

Games- video games, board games, card games, I've grown up with them all and continue to play with friends regularly.

Making cocktails, sometimes you want a drink that's a little different!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Italian, Chinese, and Mexican, will eat most things though. One of my favourites is a sesame chicken dish that I regularly make, but I mostly enjoy trying new foods.

Action movies, thrillers, comedies, sometimes romance are all genres I'll sit down and enjoy. It's hard to pin down a favourite film though, from the Bourne series to The Devil wears Prada there's a whole load of films I love. I dont generally mind what I watch but not a fan of horror and gory stuff.

When it comes to music it depends on the setting, with company I'll listen to nearly anything, if it's just me that can hear it then it goes all electronic. Big fan of the EDM genre, especially the more melodic side rather than just some over the top bass. I also can't get enough of a good mashup.
Six things I could never do without
The internet, I'd be lost both metaphorically and occasionally physically.
The close friends I've made.
A sense of humour.
A gas stove, electric hobs make me sad.
Good wine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the best ways to procrastinate, a self-fulfilling activity!

I don't like to dwell on things too much though, I used to over-think things so I try to focus on whats happening in front of me now.

Often find myself thinking about the next decoration project around the house, sometimes a good idea comes from it and it becomes a reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
An ideal Friday night is with friends around a table playing a new game, a bottle of wine to hand and good memories being made.

Typically you'll find me talking to friends inbetween either getting some coursework done or avoiding getting coursework done.
You should message me if
you need an extra player!

Or if you want to know how astronomers organise a party.
