Birthday: 29th June
Occupation: Student, studing Veterinary Science at Bristol University. I'll hopefully graduate in 2011.
So, this is where I write about myself. I'm lost for words already and I haven't even started.
"Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious." ~ Brendan Gill
I'm studying Veterinary Science at the best university in the UK (that's Bristol, for the uninformed) and enjoying it immensely, although I'm inherently lazy so sometimes have to be dragged kicking and screaming to actually do some work. I own a dog, a horse, a rabbit and some fish and love them all to bits.

I was raised a Catholic although I am now non-practicing. I do have certain beliefs, but I hold the opinion that faith is a highly personal thing and so don't discuss it with others much. I believe in free will and stubbornly refuse to allow for the concept of 'fate'. I find people who try to force their faith on others and those that have no respect for other's beliefs highly distasteful.

Politics. Hmm. I support The Monster Raving Loony Party because I am not very happy with UK politics at the moment and so refuse to affiliate myself to any of the main parties. No, okay, I'll be serious. I'm a pacifist, a feminist when I want to be, I support gay rights, freedom of thought and all that stuff... so really, I'm pretty liberal. I like to vote even though none of the parties really rock my socks and tend to go for the Liberal Democrats as the best of a bad job.

I have the best friends in the world. No, really, this is a non-debatable fact

I like running around the countryside. In the rain. With my dog. I also like riding my horse, kayaking and swimming. However, more often than not I abandon these energetic pastimes in favour of curling up on my bed with a good book, a cup of tea and some chocolate. Yes, I know, you're bowled over by my healthy lifestyle. I can but try. Oh, and music must be playing, that's for definite.
