If you were a box of cereal what would you be and why: One of those ominous glass jars with loads of old cereals mixed together. Because i am terrible at making food related decisions.

What did you want to be when you grew up: An opera singer. turns out i can't sing. Then I wanted to be a physicist. Turns out that's hard work. Throughout my life I have always wanted to work in a flower shop but unfortunately I am horrendous at arranging flowers. so yeah.

Where are you right now: Edinburgh for the next few weeks, in Namibia from June onward.

Tell us something about another staff writer: Martin is the only person whose table drumming does not drive me insane. Also, none of his socks seem to match up, which is a wonderfully human quality.
