Update: I don't tend to define myself as an English dropout any more. I'm a happy Mechanical Engineering student these days, and it's like coming home. Why I never thought of this before I don't know. It's good to feel that you're doing something worthwhile, something that could lead to places you've long dreamed about and rarely admitted.

About me? I dropped out of a BA in English at Trinity College, Cambridge, and now I'm making my useful contribution to society by studying acting by day and rehearsing at a volunteer-run theatre by night. Mostly I just like to hang out. Why not comment and say hi to provide some amusement? Or you could add me. I find people interesting.

Apart from that, I like to obsess somewhat arbitrarily over things (The Cooper Temple Clause! The Libs and post-Libs bands! Music in general!); usually just enough to worry my family. I don't watch much TV (Doctor Who! Never Mind The Buzzcocks! The Mighty Boosh!), which may or may not be due to not owning one. I love music and films. I somehow ended up as an indie kid without really meaning for it to happen. I spend a fair amount of time online, but less than I used to. Real life is more fun and more convenient for getting myself into interesting trouble.

I usually use MSN and Google Talk accounts for IMing purposes, but I have semi-abandoned accounts for other services. Yell at me if you want to chat and I can give you my details.

According to my friend bustahead, my strengths include hugging, making people laugh and eating with chopsticks. According to featherfinyipp and doteatop, I am like Jane Eyre. I'm not quite sure how to interpret that. Make of it what you will.
