Greetings Earthlings! Welcome to this, frankly, fantastic profile. Sit down, grab a cuppa and mind your head - and read on...
Name: Lindsay (Lindz). I also go by (for a variety of reasons): Becky, Northerner, Bad Wolf, Baby Turtle, Trust No-One.
Age: 20. I'm getting old...
Sex: Oh absolutely. (Well, if you can't figure it out from my name, what did you expect me to put?)
Marital Status: Married to Laura, with enough kids for a football team :-p
Home: Wherever I park my arse. At the moment that is Aberystwyth, Wales. This time last year it was Takoradi in Ghana, in the holidays it is Mansfield (in the midlands!)
Occupation: Full-time, full-blooded, bone-fide student, with all the perks that go with it!
Course: Physical Geography BSc. I also dabble in creative writing, since I took English Lang/Lit in A-Level (and got damn fine marks in it), and it is one of my favourite pastimes. Incidentally, because of my A-Levels, I know how to beta pretty effectively (all those hours analysing texts), so if anyone needs one, just ask. Or just general feedback. Otherwise, I'll continue just reviewing, which I quite like doing anyway :)
Fav Activities: Listening to music (loudly); reading anything - fiction, non-fiction, fanfiction, poetry... you get the idea; writing; playing piano/keyboard/tenor horn; climbing; walking; cycling; and, like any true student - drinking, surfing t'internet, watching tv and sleeping.
Interests: same as activities, with the following additions: going to the pub with Daddy Turtle/Family/Laura; talking to mum; looking at photos (my walls are plastered in the things); looking at stars and waiting for alien life to assert itself (what? It will happen!); being quiet; playing drinking games (a marvelous invention that - two of the greatest activities for students, put together!); travelling.
Favourite Music: I like far too many bands and individual songs to list them all here - we'd be here till the cows come home - so I'll put down the genres I listen to instead:
Favourite TV Shows: (I really don't spend my days stuck in front of the tube, despite this list being rather lengthy...)

Rock on ;-)
