My self-summary
I'm a notherner that moved to the City for all the reasons that we are told to; better prospects, greater opportunities, more money.

So far I've found that a 4.5 mile journey to work takes over an hour, and that if you want to afford a night out it needs to start in your overly-priced flat at least three hours before you head anywhere; that way you don't need to take a loan out to afford the pleasure of a bit of music and a boogie - if you are that way inclined - I am; and yes, I look ridiuculous doing it!

Saying that, I still feel incredibly lucky by everything that has so far come my way. I love London, how can you not.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work for a public relations consultancy that specialises in property and the built environment. I like my job, but I like most other things more.
I’m really good at
Making a cup of tea - there is skill involved - I promise you.
Not looking cool on a dance floor.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Dark Rum
My minor OCD tendencies - midly entertaining. An example: I have to seperate Smarties into colour groups before eating.
Yorkshire Tea
Camera - I can be quite snappy happy.
Passport - who doesn't fancy a last minute trip to Bruges.
Oyster card - who doesn't fancy a last minute trip to Zone 9.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...where my ability to sleep through seven alarms comes from.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's a Friday night. Anything goes right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The only subject I've ever failed is Religous Education. I'm one of very few to achieve this apparently.
You should message me if
You want to.
You have nothing better to do.
