Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Liam’s full profile. It’s free!
To spend an uncertain future in pursuit of true freedom and the knowledge that my so-called 'education' completely failed to help me gain.
I have recently discovered that I am an impossible being. It has to do with infinity. I like to sit in cafes and read all day. I like to go to the pub and drink a wide range of fine ales. I like to creep out the back of places, find the fire escape steps and go and sit on the roof. I am currently attempting to learn how to live out of a suitcase.
I have lots of hair and wear a hairband. I enjoy reading about chaos theory, I sometimes wish I'd done a maths degree, and I find girls with red hair very attractive.
I will soon have a tattoo on my chest of a winged cassette tape with 'BTFJ' on it.
That is All About Me.
I count freedom above all other possible things. I like to be able to wake up in the morning and have to think about nothing but what I feel like doing that day. I find the trappings of modern life dull and empty.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
I can roll a cigarette (which I consider to be a life skill), I have a good knowledge of British real ales and I know how to make a proper cup of tea - something which I find is lacking even in people that own a café in the second most popular tourist city in England, for crying out loud. Is it any wonder foreign people think we're a bit odd?
