Occupation Student
Location Shirehampton, Bristol, United Kingdom
Introduction Originally from Penzance environs, down at the southwestern-most point of this damp, chilly island. After a Cornish schooling, I came to Bristol for various varsity misdemeanours, and have stayed ever since. Here busily occupied in a life of public nuisance and private havoc. I work damned hard and play harder (at some things). I'd rather be a disappointed idealist than a wry cynic who was constantly being proved right. I adore my family (all of it, and there are hundreds of us scattered here and there); I revel in the company of my friends and confidantes. I am currently engaged in studies at University #2, doing postgrad work to help progress my career towards information professionalism.
