Welcome to my blog! This is the about page so I guess I better talk about myself. My name’s Matt, and I’m from England. I’m a geeky, vegetarian travel addict. To support my obsession with other cultures I have been teaching English abroad. I have taught mathematics and English at a Chinese university and most recently I was teaching in the south of Italy. Before that I was doing a PhD in mathematics.
Things I like include Amsterdam, Board games, Cover songs, Dice, Eclipses, Fantasy football, Getting lost, Heavy metal, Impressionism, Joke books, Kitchen gadgets, Learning Chinese, Magic the Gathering, Non-linear story telling, Origami, Paradoxes, Quizzes, Real ale, Science fiction, Tofu, Umlauts, Venus fly traps, World maps, Xenobiology? (X was hard!), Yorkshire puddings and Zelda.
I started this blog just as a place to post a beautiful vegan cupcake recipe and my terrible poetry. I soon found that I enjoy writing about almost anything. It can be therapeutic to craft an article and very satisfying when a new post is finished. I’m not always able to post as often as I like but regular topics include;
- Origami tutorials
- Top ten lists of music videos
- Fantasy football
- Activities and games for teaching English as a foreign language
I will aim to keep the topics as diverse as possible even if writing about a new topic for the first time is a challenge. Please enjoy exploring my blog. Who knows where you will end up?
