Join Couchsurfing to see Ernie’s full profile.
I was born in the last bit of The British Empire in the 20th century, grew up in post-colonial Hong Kong, educated in Britain.
Since November 2017, I have started a real adult life, aka getting a job. I work as an urban planner in Southeast London. I'm constantly in a catch-22 situation between saving money and travelling. The responsible angel keeps telling me I should save money to buy a house, strong and stable life blablabla. The playful devil, on the other hand, likes to show me all the cheap tickets on Skyscanner. So far, the devil is triumphing over the angel.
Since I don't know how to describe myself, so I leave this job to the internet. I did a personality test on seemingly legit website https://www.16personalities.com/ Apparently, I have an ENFP personality (The Campaigner). So I am meant to be curious, open-minded, energetic and compassionate, but also have poor practical skills, find it difficult to focus and overthink things. Well maybe. I recommend everyone to do this personality test to find out who you are.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm quite a curious person so I am interested in many things but I feel like I tend to know a bit of many things but ain't able to specialise in one specific thing, but in general, I'm really interested in history and art. I enjoy learning new things. I try to write a little bit but spend more time procrastinating lately. I enjoy having intellectually stimulating conversations.
- street art
- outdoor activities
