Now that we have gotten that out of the way... please be assured that whilst the illness is a part of me, it doesn't necessarily defines me entirely. I'm both a design and law grad. Horror movie connoisseur. I make films, dabble in photography and write poetry sporadically. Bisexual, if that bothers you, you may move on to other matches right now. Goth music reigns supreme for me.
An introvert by nature, big crowds aren't exactly my cup of tea. Yes, I'm that socially awkward penguin. I love having my quiet, quality time with my mind wandering into dimensions I never thought existed. Or with my family and friends, if that sounds more 'normal' to you. Cinema, cafés, art galleries and craft stores are some places I'd feel very much at home.
I'm a little shy around unfamiliar faces and in unfamiliar environment. But I'd like to think that I have a big heart and would invest so much of myself to the ones I love and matter.
In case you're curious, according to MBTI, I'm an INFJ and I dare say their profiling is pretty spot on.
[UPDATE]: I am no longer with the bank and have completed my studies in law. At the moment I'm looking for an opportunity elsewhere and trying to score any art gigs to share my spoken word.
Honestly, I don't really care much about first impressions. Come talk to me and find out!
Movies: I'm a massive movie buff! Horror, action, comedy, I'd watch them all. I've seen and enjoyed movies from the 1920's, all the way to present day in any language and genre. Some my favourite directors include John Carpenter, Lars Von Trier, Darren Aronofsky, Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton, Ingmar Bergman, Guillermo del Toro, Anton Corbijn, Martin Scorsese, Alfred Hitchcock, Carl Theodore Dreyer, Guy Ritchie, Quentin Tarantino.
Shows: Criminal Minds, How To Get Away With Murder, Scorpion, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Guys With Kids, How I Met Your Mother, MasterChef Australia and since I'm a Liverpool fan (since 1998!), I try to watch their live matches when I can. YNWA!
Music: Music that falls under the umbrella of goth (80's goth rock, post-punk, industrial, darkwave) such as the likes of Bauhaus, The Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, The Cure, Killing Joke, Christian Death, Specimen, The Wake, Rosetta Stone, Clan of Xymox, Fields of the Nephillim, Xmal Deutschland, The Crüxshadows, The Mission, Inkubus Sukkubus, Nachtmahr, Combichrist, Marilyn Manson, Blutengel, Santa Hates You, In Strict Confidence, Genitorturers, Depeche Mode, New Order, Gary Numan, Japan. I do listen to black metal, folk and doom metal, ska and rocksteady. Other kinds of music like Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Tove Lo, Sia, Christina Aguilera (seriously, who doesn't love her?!) And occasionally, Sufi music, Hindi music. I love music a lot if you can't tell already! :)
Food: Life is too short to be a cow and eat grass all the time. I'm a girl who loves her meat, thank you.
Please DON'T message me to tell me how sorry you feel about my condition and/or that you'll pray I'll get well/recover. You probably have good intentions but please, just don't. I'm not here for sympathy and have never lived from getting sympathy votes from others. And not all conditions are curable. My condition will stay with me until the day I die so if you can't live with that, well, I can't live with you either then. Sometimes, life isn't about chasing a perfect health or perfect whatever. Sometimes, you just have to make do with what you have, regardless of what you lack.
Not interested in engaging with a married person/one night stands/hookups/casual dates that lead to nowhere. Let's not waste each other's time, shall we?
