I guess it's about time I updated this probably.
Originally from Ireland, came to Brighton for my degree. Have one year left of a four year teacher training program. It's horrifically scary to think that anyone think's I'm anywhere near responsible enough to education youngsters.
I guess I could be described as an outdoorsy person. I like to be active; camping, hiking, rock climbing, anything along those lines and I'm all over it. I surf quite a lot back in Ireland, or at least flail about in the sea after my surfboard. Trained as a lifeguard, however, on my training I did accidentally let resuscitation Annie die so probably best you call on me as a last resort in case of emergency. Can't think of anything better that taking off on a sunny day, finding a nice spot and getting lost in a book.
Quite like sports, competed nationally in athletics all through secondary school but have gotten quite lazy since I started driving, I do still run though. Love rugby, a few years ago I phoned in sick every Saturday and Sunday throughout the six nations ha.
Would like to think of myself as a musical person. I've played guitar since I was 7. I'm a huge fan of live music be it gigs or festivals. Probably would be described as a bit of an indie kid and can act quite the music snob at times. But take a look through my music library and it's filled with many a 90's guilty pleasures (to be honest I don't feel one bit of guilt or embarrassment. Who didn't like the 90's?). One of my favourite pass-times is singing extremely loudly, and badly, to heart fm in the car. Who ever doesn't admit to doing that is just lying.
I have been quite fortunate to travel quite extensively. I love exploring different cultures and languages and wandering off the trodden path. My idea of hell is two weeks all inclusive in a Spanish resort where you never leave the resort and lay by the pool for two weeks. I feel that there's so much to see and do. Even here in the UK. I can't stand people that constantly complain about being bored, especially on sunny days.
I don't go for the standard run of the mill type dates I prefer something a bit more spontaneous than meeting in a bar for a few drinks however I'm not opposed to that. Perfect first date would go along the lines of a game of lazer quest to start followed by lunch/dinner where we could get to know each other and depending on that perhaps leading to a few beers on the beach listening to the waves and talking some more.
In failing that nice bar, nice drinks preferably with some sort of live music.
