Always like to make new friends where possible, though I can be a bit cranky when it comes to starting conversations.
Working on Photography things, boring myself to tears with politics (It interests me, but I don't talk about it to those that are terminally bored by the subject).
I am honest, intelligent, and Silly
Most of the time I can be found pottering around on the internet or out walking in Oxford, usually with my camera. Photography is a good way of keeping myself motivated as I still have a lot to learn about the different techniques. You could say I'm slightly obsessed with photography

I am a good listener when my attention hasn't wondered to something else (happens often if I have a camera in my hands). Sometimes give good advice, but I usually say what I want to say then let the person make their own minds up.
Harry Potter series, The works of J.R.R. Tolkien, The Chronicles of Narnia, His Dark Materials series, Sophie Scholl and the white rose, No Logo, A feast for crows....
TV - Shameless, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Bones, Fringe, and pretty much anything that takes my fancy while flicking through the channels. I rather enjoyed Moffat's and Gatiss's reworking of Sherlock Holmes.
Movies - I love cinema, anything from the latest blockbusters to international film. Favourite films -
The Goonies, Ghostbusters, City of God, Ong Bak, A beautiful mind, The Dark Knight, Frankenstein, various Hammer Horror films, Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb. If listed all my favourite films I'd be here for a month of Sundays typing.
Music - Having spent my teenage years listening to John Peel on Radio 1, I developed an odd musical taste with a few guilty pleasures. I will listen to anything once. Favourite bands - Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, REM, Sigur Ros, Foo Fighters, Manic Street Preachers, Nine Inch Nails, Paramore, No doubt, A Perfect Circle, Slade, The Beatles, The Smiths, Boxfive, Bat For Lashes
Artists - PJ Harvey, Beth Orton, Jeff Buckley, Tori Amos and a lot more. The more music I can find and enjoy the better...
Food - I'm relearning to cook at the moment, may have a bash at baking at some point. Used to make cakes a lot as a child when I spent my summers at my grandmothers house.
I don't have a particular favourite food aside from British puddings which I should probably refrain from eating.
I tend to get irritated when people make assumptions about depressed people or other mental health conditions being crazy weirdos. It's a lot more complex than the tabloid rags like to paint things.
