About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get a job!

ABOUT ME

I have moved to Dublin and would am absolutely loving life here.

I'm a nerd with a passion for good movies, books and TV. If a TV show is good enough, I can sit down and watch a whole series in one day, or at least until my eyes begin to blur - whichever one comes first.

Talking is my passion and it's what I do best. I love exchanging stories, information, goals, music, movies, books. I've been sometimes told that I talk a lot - better a lot than not at all, I guess.

I am respectful and kind, caring and considerate.

I love, love, love finding new music so if you have any recommendations for me, then I will be your best friend! Or at least very very grateful.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is interesting - all the bad things just add to this.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

So far haven't participated yet, but I hope to update in the future!

Right now I can only meet for coffee/a drink rather than host so, if you would like to do this then just send me a message and, if I'm free, we can organize something! I always enjoy meeting new people!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None, at the moment. Give it time, hopefully this will be extremely full!

Interests

Music, good company, swimming, jogging, yoga, meditation, music, dancing (badly), singing (even worse than my dancing), cooking, eating, drinking herbal teas, getting lost, being found, discovering little things people might not see.

Being myself!

Music, Movies & Books

Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut - there's are the perfect books to read after each other. Both impossible to describe, they're well worth the read.

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman - two of the best fantasy writers team up to write an incredible story about an Angel and a Demon uniting to stop the end of the world.

Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo - possibly one of the best Anti-War books I've ever read, it's disturbing content makes for a harrowing read.

1984 by George Orwell - anyone who has ever read this book can understand why.

Movies: Requiem for a Dream, Ink, Man from Earth, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Fountain.

Music: Jonsi, Sigur Ros, Freelance Whales, Paulo Nutini, Florence and the Machine, the Postal Service, Bright Eyes, Bombay Bicycle Club, Belle & Sebastian, Dan le Sac VS Scroobius Pip, Grizzly Bear, Jack Johnson, Local Natives, Mumford and Son, Radiohead (I'm pretty much just listing off my iTunes library - if you haven't noticed). I've also recently discovered Noah and the Whale and also trying to figure out why it took me so long. My latest discovery are they Fleet Foxes.

Recently I have developed a somewhat unhealthy obsession with The Office (US), so much so that it has somewhat distorted my view on what the workplace is probably going to be like...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have lived it. This is pretty amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

It's hard to think of what I can teach others, unless I'm there. Teach them about my life, learn about theirs.

Teach English (I like to think I'm quite good at it ..) Nerdy things (HTML, C++, Joomla, Javascript, Actionscript) How to be scared silly by lame horror movies Basic yoga positions

Learn: New languages Any musical instrument How to juggle (though this may be impossible) Yoga positions, I love learning new ones!
