My self-summary
Laid-back, reflective, passionate, accepting. I find it hard to adequately summarise myself.
My personality type is INFP for those interested in that.

By the way, my username is in reference to a track on a particularly good Stars of the Lid album.
What I’m doing with my life
Freelance Photographer. I also make music and paint when the mood strikes, they're really interesting outlets for me.
Oh and I'm also kind of a film nut, especially of the art-house/independent variety. This automatically labels me as pretentious by the way.
I’m really good at
Listening, using art to make sense of things, having an open mind.
I would venture to suggest more, though ascribing positive attributes to myself has never come naturally. Also it depends on your definition of "really good" (Why am I taking this so seriously)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea, not the kind of thing I would ask someone. I guess I have larger than average hands. Maybe my height? Also been told I look younger than my age (for better or worse..)

I'm heavily into Balinese/Javanese gamelan right now. An utterly entrancing and captivating form of music:-

The six things I could never do without
My family, creative tools of many kinds, inspiration wherever it may appear, (wouldn't be British if I didn't say) tea, nature, headphones.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Abstract/metaphysical shit that is probably bad for my mental health but feel compelled towards regardless.
If I should make more of an effort with my profile despite being ill-suited to the oft soul-crushing nature of dating sites.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably absorbing myself in a good movie, listening to or making music, hanging with friends, going to a show etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like (some) Kpop. That's all you're getting.
You should message me if
You feel we would get along.
