My self-summary
Meek, quiet, nerdy, friendly, naive, bumbling, honest.

I spent much more time adding answers to the quiz section than filling this page in.

I love practical designs, struggles with art for art's sake. So on a spectrum I'd prefer the Powerhouse museum than the MCA, ACMI rather than MONA. Secretly hoped I was the first to compare my personality to Australian museums.

Been described as ingénue-like, androgynous or effeminate. Instead of doing sports and fixing lawnmowers, I'm good for hugs and cuddles and prefer just casually chatting for hours.
What I’m doing with my life
Been cycling thru work, unemployment and studies, from engineering to design to 3D graphics and video games. Currently on "hiatus".
I’m really good at
Passionately discussing, even overanalysing music, movies, designs.

Listening. Looking for the alternative argument. The more positive view on a negative situation and the more negative view on a positive.

Forgetting things, people, names, faces, important dates, shopping lists.

Procrastinating. Oh! Was this only meant to be *good* things we are good at?

Befriending neighbourhood cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
​Lanky wallflower that alternates between mostly reserved and occasional bursts of verbiage with an odd sense of humour and weird conversational tangents to desperately compensate for the social anxiety.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
​I like the idea of being vegetarian in theory, but in practice I just could not put that much thought into food. No where near as much as I should. I don't understand calories and carbs.

I have been obsessed with music. I love turning up extra early at a local gig and supporting all the supports.

I have completely fallen out of the loop of movies and this golden age of TV. I don't have anything against it and would definitely appreciate anyone wanting to help me catch back up to speed.

Purposefully didn't want to just list titles here.
The six things I could never do without

Sleep- good sleep is so grossly underrated.

Curiosity and the quest for knowledge.

Peace, quiet and tranquility.

Hugs. Great big hugs.

Cats.

...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mind, memory, who we are if we can forget our past, or if we are the product of our experiences but we are constantly re-constructing our memories anyway, then what makes us us?

All the fantastic local bands that slips through the cracks unnoticed.

Science. Trying to wrap my head around the latest scientific discoveries and breakthroughs.

The bigger world, politics and war, it gets me down, how people will never get along. Where it's all headed.

Why is there so many pointy right angles on furniture?! Don't they know people have to use these things and people are soft and squishy and don't like bumping into sharp right angles!

Depression. Melancholy. Friends lost through time.

Don't believe in any gods or religions but fantasise about reincarnating as a pampered housecat.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping. Or falling in love with some first support band playing to an empty room that won't survive past a first EP.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
​Distracted by severe depression through my twenties, my life effectively skipped a decade and I am very inexperienced to dating and find it very confusing and daunting.
You should message me if
​You like cats, local live music, the thought of driving out into the country just to watch the nights skies on a clear night, or staying in for a pizza and dvd marathon.

Have you ever had the fantasy of moving to a remote lighthouse off the coast of Tasmania? I'm also seeking a work partner to make this fantasy come true.
