A Grand Entrance?

Greetings folks. To begin, my name is Eoin. I'm 20, male and fully Irish, having been born and bred in the Emerald Isle. For the past three years I have been studying Literature and History at university, and have now obtained my degree with a First Class Honours result and am ready to graduate! I've also managed to slip through the cracks into a postgraduate MA in American Literature and Film, which I start in two weeks.

Naturally enough, one of my most important interests is literature and reading. Whether it's something casual and light or something classic and difficult, I'm up for reading virtually anything-from ancient scriptures to wallpaper. Some of my favourites include The Scarlet Letter, Ulysses, Native Son, The Great Gatsby, The Sound and the Fury, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Murphy, A Portrait of the Artist.. as you might be able to deduce, Irish/American/Modernist literature is my forte. Another major interest of mine is video gaming, which totally revolutionised my life when I first came to it many years ago. It taught me things, it earned me friends.. I read and draw and write about the subject. I'm up for playing any game but it's Nintendo consoles that I own and specialise in.

Another major interest of mine is poetry. Sadly, I've been unlucky in love, and my poetry reflects that-a lot of my poems are melancholy, and envision an intimate, romantic relationship that I've either lost or dreamt about. I'd love to meet someone who I could write poetry for/about/to, but in the meantime I've tried to express my fondness for some special people in my life through the medium, even if it's not romantic. I used to have an interest in art, but I've left the business in recent years. I'm also interested in anime and manga, as part of my general fondness for Japanese culture.

As far as my journal goes, it's somewhat ambivalent-ranging from really positive entries to somewhat depressed ones, with plenty of memes in between, with the odd review of a book/game/film. I also do V-Logs, as of late.

My personality, and I'll try not to flatter myself too much here... I'm honest. Don't get me wrong, I believe that you shouldn't tell a person everything, but I value honesty as one of my highest traits and think the truth is more important than someone's feelings, at times. I'm perhaps too deep, very thoughtful and intellectual, but at the same time I'm always good for a laugh. Not many people can make me laugh, but I make a lot of people laugh. Which I derive more pleasure from, really! I'm a tad anti-social, but far more sociable and less shy than I used to be. If you respect me, I will repay you infinitely, but if you do not respect me, I'll quickly forget you.

Therefore, the lesson is that if you want to be my friend, I'm more than happy to talk to you or add you. But know this. I expect honesty and I expect someone who is open-minded. I want friends who I can count on, and who'll be there for the good and bad. I've been lucky in life, mostly, but not always am I content. I'd also like us to share some interests.

However, if you can fill all those qualities, I will be there for you whenever you need me and I'll really... CARE for you. I promise.
