My self-summary
1. I once saw Derren Brown on Bakers Street. I stared at him like a deranged stalker. Our eyes locked, and we shared a moment only a restraining order could break.
2. I'm fast, like a gazelle.
5. I want a cat more than anything in the world, but I'm scared of the commitment. This is seriously the biggest dilemma in my life right now.
What I’m doing with my life
I've recently completed an MA in medieval history which has given me the ability to viciously assault people with history based facts. Brace yourself.

I work in finance, which is hilarious because I'm a massive lefty.

Exploring stuff ( I have a massive dude boner for anything Scandinavian/Nordic). I place a lot of emphasis on seeing the world and gaining as many new experiences as I can.

I'm slowly delving into the wonderful world of photography. Huzzar for hobbies.

Health and fitness is kind of a big deal. Dem endorphins.
I’m really good at
Running unnecessary distances.

People watching.

I hold a deep passion for history; the grand story of man from the inception of the universe to our pursuit of the idealised society. I value critical thinking and the desire for self improvement: History, politics, philosophy, science, economics. I'm hiding in academia and not coming out.

Watching Fox News for the sillies. But overexposure can often lead to a sense of hopelessness, and so I need to eat cupcakes to restore the balance. Most of life's problems can be solved with the strategic use of cupcakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, no doubt. If I was a woman and prettier I could totally be in one of those shampoo ads half naked in a waterfall surrounded by birds and nature and shit.

People have a habit of asking whether I'm Spanish...or Italian...or elvish, someone even asked me if I was Polish once. I don't understand, but I'm happy to go along with any nationality you choose to impose on me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: As long as i have books I can escape. Well that or Crack, but you know.

The Master and Margarita, Montaillou, anything Hemmingway is literary bliss. The Temeraire series by Naomi Novik, because who doesn't like a reinvention of the Napoleonic Era with dragons?

New Scientist, The Economist and XKCD.

Movies: Into the Wild, Rubber, Magnolia, Sunshine, Cashback, Moon, The Fountain, Memento, One Hour Photo, Pulp Fiction, Oldboy, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Lotr, Fear and Loathing. Director wise, nothing beats the Coen brothers.

I've made an effort to see all the Twilght movies at the cinema, because that much hilarity doesn't deserve to wait.

Shows: Mostly comedy. Think Peep Show, The Mighty Boosh, Family Guy, Brasseye, Darkplace, IT Crowd, Flight of the Conchords. I grew up on Star Trek and have a soft spot for House.

Sherlock is pretty much the best thing ever.

Music: Rock, blues, metal, jazz -- I'm pretty open. Some of the music I'm obsessing over at the moment includes, Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Russian Circles and Mogwai.

Rammstein are the best bad I've ever seen live. Ever.
The six things I could never do without
My passport.
The internets. Source of all my procrastination. If it breaks I will cry.
I know this is only five. Fuck the police.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether Mr Rochester is better than Mr Darcy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've seen Mean Girls more than once. No regrets.
You should message me if
You can provide baked goods.

You at least try to spell words correctly.

Remember, anything is possible with the correct use of grammar.

(You're excused if it's not your first language, because I'm merciful like that).
