My self-summary
I've been spending way too many years of my life trying to tell myself that I should like what I'm doing rather than telling myself to do what I like. That's changing.

I like people. A lot. If you want to hang out I'll be super happy! If you introduce me to something cool I haven't tried, I'll be even more happy.

I have a short attention span. Thus, this is it for now. I might write some more another time…
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm studying human geography for reasons that often escape me. When I'm not doing that I can most often be seen drinking coffee while staring at my computer/a book/the air.

I like to draw. Do too little of it, though. Trying to do it more often.

I have a radio show with a friend where we play more or less funky music and talk about it for an hour every week. I like music.

I have a coloumn in a small, free newspaper. It's about music as well, sort of. I'm not really good at writing.

I'm a little bit of an audiophile. Nothing too bad though; the music is still most important. But I work in a hi-fi shop, so some occupational damage have to be expected.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating? Yeah… And remembering interesting, but pointless stuff. Which also means I'm really good at pub-quiz'es and whatnot. Oh, and I cook a quite decent meal. Probably something else as well, but I'm not very good at bragging.
The first things people usually notice about me
My name. I have never (for as far as I can remember) introduced myself to someone and not have them ask me about my name first thing. As a result I'm notoriously bad at remembering names. Sorry about that.

On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking a beer or three with friends at the pub/dinner table/couch/park
You should message me if
… you want to hang out, or just exchange a couple of messages, trade tips about books/movies/music, laugh at something funny, anything really.

… you are able to draw circles with an Etch-a-Sketch! I'm nowhere near being able to, but it would be awesome to see someone do it. I can provide an Etch-a-Sketch.

… you're not planning on being stupid or an ass (in an uninteresting way). If so, don't bother.
The two of us
