Richard

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Course: Bachelor of Mass Communications with Majors in International Journalism and Media and Communication

Year of progress in course: second

Star sign: Cancer (oh noes!)

Dream job: Samurai. Wait, no, I don’t want to be stabbed. Entertainment Journalist. That would be epic. If that fails, I’ll single-handedly take over The Chaser’s War on Everything.

What’s the one thing that sets you apart from other students: My amazing ability to drink a cup of hot chocolate without the spoon hitting me in the eye, and being ‘that guy’ in the back of the movie theatre with the really loud laugh.

Which TV character best matches your personality: Seth Cohen – The OC, or Xander – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Your favourite three books: Harry Potter, Breaking Dawn (yeah yeah shutup! :P), My Summer on Earth

Your favourite three movies: Big Daddy, The Prestige, American Pie. Bonus pts: The Pineapple Express

Describe your music tastes: Quite diverse! From all things dancy/synthesised (the music of my generation), to millions of indie artists you’ve never heard of, chances are I have it on my iPod! However, I can’t go past bands like blink-182, Yellowcard, Paramore, lostprophets, etc.

What do you do in your free time: Superhero by day. Legendary by night. I go out more than I should. I procrastinate like a mofo. I laugh at my own jokes. But this is me in all my glory. I’m loving it!

I’ve also been drumming for 5 years, have an unhealthily strong knowledge of all things entertainment and popular culture, and go out too many nights a week (living in the Valley will do that to you!).

You can invite five people (dead, alive or fictional) to dinner – who would they be: Adam Sandler, Buffy, Serena Van Der Woodsen Blake Lively, Stifler, the fat guy from Heroes who can read minds!

What makes you happy: Long walks on the beach…, meeting new people, going out with friends and having the time of my life, watching ridiculously nonsensical Apatow comedies xD, trying on new clothes without buying them, pressing all the squeaky toys in K-Mart to make them go off at once

If you could choose one super power – what would it be: Space and time manipulation (thank you, Hiro!)

What is your favourite place on earth: Stradbroke Island. Such an awesome getaway!

What would be your last meal: KFC >_>

What do you want to be when you grow up: A knight. As long as they somehow invent armour that comes off easily when I want to use the toilet.

If your mates could sum you up in three words – they would be: fun, exciting, passionate.

What is your most treasured possession: My caffeine stash – it has helped me out many a lonely night doing assignments. Either that or the $300 leather jacket I’ve had for two years, which I’ve worn a grand total of twice in my life.
