My self-summary
Hi *waves*

I am a considerate, friendly and easy going sort of person. I have a sarcastic and dark sense of humour. I suppose I am an ambivert but I have strong introvert tendencies. For me this means I am not too good at small talk, I can get socially exhausted, I can be shy and anxious at times; but this all depends on the situation. Hmm what else? Oh, I am more of a listener than a talker and I am also a very independent person.

And, this should go without saying but, I like anything history related since I did my degrees in the subject. The 18th century is my specialist era. I do plan on doing my PhD and I will probably be going abroad to do it.

Politically I am left wing and I certainly lean heavily towards socialism.

I am a vegan and because of this I spend a lot of time cooking and reinventing recipes which has made me a decent cook. I really enjoy cooking for people and often make food for my friends or family. And, just in case my veganism puts people off, I am not preachy about it but I am passionate about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working at Sunderland University Library (both Murray and St Peters) as a part-time library assistant. I also work at the Painted Elephant as a waiter. I live in Heaton in a house share with 5 other people. I really enjoy living with them. I am going to the gym regularly and have lost quite a bit of weight. I also go fencing and I am quite good at it. I am applying for PhD positions on and off. I am doing a little bit of writing and tutoring. And, lastly, I am learning French and German, but I need to spend more time studying it.
I’m really good at
I am good at fencing, photography and cooking.

Oh, and how could I forget, I am really good at breaking things. I have broken beds, doors, sofas, car windows and so many other things. Things should be made better! Haha
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, there is a in-joke between my friends where they have become sentient and evil!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like the classics, such as novels wrote by E.M. Foster, Jane Austen and Homer. Just to name few. Films: I tend to be disappointed with most films but I really do like B-movies. They make me laugh. I do however, like, Anime's by studio Ghibli. Series: Borgia's, Game of Thrones, Black Sails and Vikings. I also like animated series such as Lupin the 3rd, Adventure Time, Monkey Dust and Futurama. I also like comedy such as, Black books, IT crowd, Black Adder, Faulty Towers, Yes Minister and Prime Minster, Fry and Laurie, The Peep show and etc. Radio: I love to listen to radio 4. Music: Rock, instrumental, jazz and classic. Food: I am vegan. I love intense flavours and spice. I am a bit picky about what I eat. It is a running joke among my friends that I am food snob. haha.
Six things I could never do without
1. People who are close to me.
2. History and Literature.
3. My little indulgences.
4. Vegan food!
5. My camera & violin.
6. And, probably other things that are failing to come to my mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, politics, society, people. You know, the usual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually cooking and enjoying my day off doing one of my hobbies :P
