I'm a Northern boy from the Pennine hills trying desperately not to lose my accent, and obviously along with it my heritage, but failing more than epically.
Well I'm nearly 30 but thankfully I don't look it, or so I've been told. I'm pretty easy going and like lots of different things, in fact I prefer to have lots of different things in my life. It keeps me busy as well as keeping me a positive, open minded freethinker.
What I’m doing with my life
Im a voice actor in my spare time and work for a radio station and other media areas, I have a love of photography and spend some time enjoying that but in my full time job I'm a PA to a young woman with a physical disability. It complements my history as a nurse in the health and social care industry, although I don't currently consider myself a Nurse.
I'm also living it up in Cambridge. Which contrary to popular belief is a hub of very little, but its a beautiful city and I love it.
I’m really good at
Not these things clearly.... :D
I guess Im a good gardener. I grow my own vegetables because there is lots of garden space at my home, but its far from aesthetically pleasing. Just productive.
I can spin fire poi and on occasion have been know to paint interesting things, but I wouldnt say Im "really" good.
Hmm... OK I love Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Isaac Asimov, Stephen Fry, Audrey Niffeneger, mainly fiction and some historical stuff such as Witchfinders by Malcolm Gaskill
Movies.. Aha! Now there's a good topic. I love pretty much any zombie movie therefore I bow to George A. Romero. Horror in general and horror comedy like Shaun of the Dead. Psychological thrillers and dramas like Sybil, Cold souls, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Identity, Enter the Void. Also some of Mike Leighs films, happy go lucky was good but the lead actress really grated my nerves. Incidentally she plays a much less annoying part in the very good movie "Made in Dagenham"
My music taste is pretty varied but Ill list what's in my play list at the moment. Florence and the Machine, The Police, David Bowie, Radiohead, Pendulum, Joy division and obviously New Order, Blondie, Mumford and Sons, Seth lakeman, Megson, Johnny Cash, Billy Idol... Hey how did that get in there!?.. Hmm OK Rebel Yell and White Wedding are awesome songs, The Crystal Method, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Stiff little fingers, Belle and Sebastian, Bob Dylan, Kings of Leon, Vampire Weekend..... Enough I think.
Food... I pretty much will eat most things and I'm very adventurous when its comes to new cuisine. My favourite styles are Japanese and Italian. I make an awesome Lancashire hotpot though.
I really want to find more people to add to this new journal that I have begun. My old journal was abandoned due to some stalker type activity getting on my nerves and I just found I could be as honest on it as I wanted to. My journals are explicit so be warned and I wont add anyone under 18 for that reason.
