My self-summary
Pathologically irreverent, bigtime Morrissey/Smiths fan, libertarian/libertine. I think a LOT about the world around me and my place in it, how I want to live my life and why. Politically, a bit rad (but in, like, a non-dogmatic, affable kind of way). I cannot and do not get on with people who take their career progression/bank balances/pension schemes too seriously. Having said that, what I do for my living (teaching philosophy and sociology) is actually very important to me and something I care about a lot - I feel lucky to be able to say this about my work, don't think most people can. I'm pretty happy and there is loads about my life that I love.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to get the balance right between having financial security without spending my time and energy on things that aren't really me or how I want to live my life... it's tough but I think I'm doing OK. "I have tried, in my way, to be free" (Leonard Cohen).
I’m really good at
I'm good at... remembering film quotes exactly and dropping them into conversation, thinking, over-thinking, excess, forgetting what I was doing an hour ago. And... putting things off. Oh - eating. I like all food (but I don't eat meat). I can also strum and sing most Smiths' songs you'd care to name.
The first things people usually notice about me
My face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Random-ish examples: Hunter S.Thompson, Hermann Hesse. Foucault & Deleuze-Guattari have changed my life permanently. Sideways, Manhattan (Woody Allen). The Trip, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Killing, The Wire. Leonard Cohen, Regina Spektor, The Smiths/Morrissey (massively), PJ Harvey, Beach House n The National of late. Literally all food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love n life n psychoanalysis n stuff
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting drunk with friends. I am that predictable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrible at admitting private things publicly. I'm a bit of a private person, I suppose.
