I'm very laid back and not a lot phases me. I enjoy making sure the people around me are happy but know when space and/or privacy is required, as I also find comfort with my own company.
Recently I returned from a lengthy global trot. The highlights were definitely Amsterdam (not just because of the reason you're probably thinking), Berlin & Barcelona. I have made some life long friends through the process and enjoyed exposing myself to new possibilities, ideas and other ways of thinking.
I run my business specialising in professional creative lighting from home (downstairs) so my hours can be varied. That being said, I've never had a guest or housemate complain of being woken or being too noisy. I'm aware of the people around me and do my best to be considerate to their needs.
Home life & comfort is a high priority for me. I like to be neat without being anal about it. With a vast blu-ray collection, having one or two mates for dinner and a movie, or even solo, is how I like to relax.
It doesn't phase me if there's a moment or two of untidiness as I know it'll be sorted soon enough. Life's too short to waste it on blame guilt or the like. I'm just as likely to sort it out during the process of my day without a second thought.
I insist on a good laugh at least three times a day and I'm happy to be alone for those moments as I lean towards to funnier, even black comedy side of life.
As I pride myself as having an open heart and mind, I do not judge for one's opinions so expect the same in return. This approach often results in fascinating conversation in to why we think the way we do and what lead us to our conclusions.
Speaking of conclusions...
That's enough about me.
