Preferred Name: PuzzlerBird or Puzzler

Date of Joining Staff: Wednesday 22nd October, 2014

Staff Roles: Scout

Background to Username: When thinking of a username, I thought of two things I really love, and combined them: puzzles (and games) and animals (particularly birds).

Background to Avatar: I wanted to pick a female character. Flora's my favourite, but since we don't have her yet I thought I would go for Pelly, my next favourite! Oh, and I just love purple.

Favorite AC Game: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Favorite Color: Lilac

Hobbies: When not playing video games, I like to assemble really big and difficult jigsaw puzzles, (the kind that are so big that they can't fit on a table, and have to go on the floor)! I also enjoy birdwatching, cross-stitch, baking and making up my own recipes, and going for walks in different environments, seeing what wildlife I can spot.

A Little Bit About Me: I was born and brought up in North East England, and have a Biomedical Sciences degree (although I have often regretted not studying ecology), which I studied for here.
I've always been a big Nintendo fan, and I think I will be forever. When I was six, my dad fitted my granda's kitchen in, and my granda bought him a Nintendo 64 as thanks. Unfortunately, he didn't always get the chance to play on it, because more often than not I would be at the console instead, using an entire hand just to move the control stick!
There's really so much that I could put in this section, so I'll leave it up to you if you want to know more!

pedro_collins asked:

"Do you miss being a university student?"
Do I ever! Gone are the days when I'd lug around massive textbooks, and spend the next day sitting in my room, never getting dressed and leaving food remnants all over the desk. Wait - isn't it still like that now? Or I'd go up to the silent floor of the library with a sneaky Greggs and come back down again after accomplishing little, go to the basement and try to get 2 for 1 on the dodgy vending machines, or order food in the SU with friends during long free periods. I went from school to university and didn't go to college, so university was a complete "This is a tutorial, and I'm just running around and I have no idea what I'm doing" kind of experience, especially in the first year. And it was absolutely wonderful. Even though second and final years were gritty, and my head realised it had to get down more, there was still a wonderful sense of freedom there and I'd love to go back and do it all over again.
Although I do wish I had studied something else, because I'd much rather be out in the field doing a study on ecosystems, but at the given moment, it's not possible for me to go back and do so. I am very grateful for being given the opportunity, though. I have my degree, I am the only one out of my family to go, and there are so many people all over the world who long to attend, and are unable to.
