My self-summary
My name is Nik.

I'm fun loving, very energetic and my friends enjoy my antics and shenanigans when we hang out. They never know what to expect.

I like to think I'm polite and try my best to help people out whenever possible. I also try to get people to smile on public transport because everyone usually looks so unhappy.

I guess you could call me a gamer or a nerd but I don't think I really fit the normal stereotypes for either label. I enjoy the occasional video game but prefer the more social ones like Guitar Hero or Rock Band. I collect, build and paint both Warhammer and 40k.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working as IT Support in the Education sector in Melbourne, I'm enjoying it but I'm considering going to Uni or TAFE to get more recognised learning.

I enjoy sailing on Saturdays when the weather is decent.

Other than that, I'm hanging out with friends whenever they're free and also trying really hard to get better at / finishing the painting of my Warhammer collection.
I’m really good at
Giving hugs, making a fool of myself/having fun with friends, fixing computers and other consumer electronic devices. I enjoy problem solving and usually won't give up until a problem's solved. So I guess that I'm good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm pretty shy and maybe my hair as it can get pretty silly at times. Other than that I don't really know. I guess I often hear that I look pretty sharp in a suit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, I've starting reading through his other books and enjoying them as well. Tom Clancy's fiction books with Jack Ryan in them are also fond favourites with Executive Orders and The Hunt for Red October being stand out favourites.

The older Disney animated movies are generally enjoyable and pretty much all of Pixar's stuff is legendary. Otherwise I generally enjoy Sci-Fi or Comedy movies. I generally avoid Horror films as I figure we've got too much of that in the real world to want to escape to another place with more of it.

For TV shows, I really enjoy Q.I., Blackadder, Red Dwarf, The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Black Books, Stargate S.G.1 and Atlantis. Possibly some others too that have escaped my thoughts at the moment.

Music I generally enjoy Rock and Alternative but I'm finding with playing the music games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band that my taste in music is diversifying, which is always good. However I stay completely away from Country Western and Heavy Metal.
Six things I could never do without
The usual things I guess, a suitable living environment, you know oxygen, protection from radiation, gravity, sustenance and what not. That's a given.

My friends and family come next, I guess these can count as two but I can't really separate them as my closest friends I consider to be my family anyway.

Next would be my phone, now I'm not really a talker on the phone but I like knowing that if people need to contact me they can as I have it with me almost all the time but I do ignore calls/messages/whatever when I'm supposed to. Plus my phone is internet connected so if I'm bored I can do whatever on it.

My music belongs in this list too. I listen to it a lot and it does the usual things for me that it does to pretty much everyone else.

Last but not least is nature. I grew up in basically "The Bush" so I'm used to have birds and trees around me. When it's really quiet I become unnerved because usually that's when something bad is about to happen as animals have that sixth sense about them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ways to make the tasks I'm doing more interesting or work better, how to make the world a better place and how awesome it'd be to be able to fly or go to the moon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually I'm home chilling out watching DVDs or playing video games but more than occasionally my friends drag me out and we hang out in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm, I don't really know. I can't think of anything off the top of my head as I generally will tell people anything if they ask the right question.
You should message me if
you find me interesting and want to chat. Though I'd prefer it if you message me more than a sentence.
The two of us
