Hellooo! I'm Jonathan. And I've managed to defy the stereotype of Scottish people being drunk 24/7 long enough to write this profile. I'm an amateur astronomer and wannabe professional scientist, as I pursue my quixotic dream of carving out a career in astrophysics. To that end I study at the Open University for my honours in astrophysics and mathematics. I work full time running a bakery for a supermarket chain too which means I have to wear a white trilby hat, disappointingly it doesn't make me look look a detective in 1940's Los Angeles.
In my spare time I'm usually found cramming my brain with information from books, failing that I'll be Youtube-ing my way through documentaries. When I'm not overloading my memory with mostly useless crap I may be attempting to improve my guitar playing, seeing as it currently sounds like a symphony of dying animals. While I'm on music, I'm rarely not listening to it. Pearl Jam, Audioslave, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Bathory are some of my favourite musicians.
If you're a gamer feel free to add me on PSN or Steam, My ID for both is FarSideOfSaturn. I'm a fan of narrative heavy games like the Metal Gear series or The Walking Dead, and anything open world like Skyrim or GTA. I don't watch a lot of TV, but I love films. I'm more into drama-y things like The Breakfast Club or Dead Poets Society, but I can never resist a cheesy 80s horror movie marathon if the opportunity arises. When it comes to literature, almost everything I read is horror or sci-fi.
I'm not an incredibly serious person, I like to make people laugh and I mostly talk absolute nonsense. I mainly try to live as happily and as peacefully as I can so I have more time to wonder what would happen if I jumped off a bridge armed with a ton of umbrellas. I think I'd float down like Mary Poppins.
If you made it this far have ten Gryffindor points! Feel free to say hi :)
Learning! My music, films and books. Also my spacey and universe-y stuff. Exploring remote places like Alaska on streetview for some reason, stealing road and danger signs, wind and rain, winter, every reptile ever, penguins, bad acting, drawing on myself, cramp, milkshake, Swedish alcohol and neon lights.
When I walk down a long empty road only for a brigade of cars to come when I need to cross, when my guitar cuts out mid song, any form of public transport at more than half capacity, how I manage to break every lamp I buy, motorways, brightly lit rooms, trying to text with cold hands and that day I dislocated my left knee because if there's one thing I really hate, it's parts of my body moving away from it's natural location. Ew.
I'll only list a few...Pearl Jam, Audioslave, Soundgarden, Bathory, Alice In Chains, Motorhead, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Offspring and Gary Numan
