Names/Screen-names You Go By: Names: Nathan, Screen Name/Alias: polkovniknades
I'll answer to: Nathan, [redacted because last name], Polk, Polko, Blue, Vlad, Vladimir, Markovich

Explain Your Username:
A friend started calling me Nades as in Grenades for a bit and during that time I played a lot of the C&C Generals Zero Hour Cold War Crisis mod where I learnt of the Russian word: Polkovnik. So then I decided to mash the two together and I got "polkovniknades". I also recently made a newer more intrinsic icon :D Biggur:

Explain Your Icon:
It's part of a deviation that expresses how I think society sees me. It's a CS:GO smoke grenade with a Polkovnik/Colonel rank slide and a soviet offices cap. I got some photos off google, arranged them and painted over them.

How Would You Describe Your Personality?
Quiet, laid-back (mostly), anger management problems Still kinda quiet when around unfamiliar people but once I get to know them or if they have similar interests (Like geology intensive schools), I tend to open up.

How Would Other People Describe You?
Quiet, Quote: "A crazy cracker". GPN; Global Positioning Nathan. Due to me being the only one in our geological mapping group who had good orienteering skills and because our lecturers didn't allow us to use actual GPSes. 

Are You Afraid Of Anything/Have Any Phobias?
I have social anxiety (In the real world, in the virtual world, not as much) I went and saw a psychologist about that a couple years ago and although I'm still a bit timid, I feel a hell of a lot better knowing that every single person out there isn't relentlessly judging me.

What's Your Favourite Physical Feature About Yourself?
My arms, why? I have no clue. Nothing really new there I guess.

What's Your most hated physical feature about yourself?
I don't know. The fact that I'm short and thin which means I sit in that weird range where I tend to be too big for the largest kid sizes but too small for the smallest adult sizes which makes cloth shopping an absolute pain in the ass for me... I guess that counts xD

Do you have any physical disabilities/ailments?
Don't think so

Do you have any SPECIAL/FREAKY Abilities 8D?
I can lick my elbow. Dislocate and relocate my left thumb rapidly

Do you have any allergies?
Hayfever, cat fur :/

2nd child, one half brother (Same mum, different dad)

How many cousins do you have? Big family?
Absolutely no clue, my mother's side is insanely large

Do you WANT to have children? If so how many?
Maybe. Just one. Maybe two. Who knows. Depends on what my socioeconomic status is down the track

What was your dream job when you were a kid?
Wanted to be a pilot since I was 5. And I still fucking do :D

What is your dream job now?
Still, to be a pilot, or maybe a geologist Why not have both? I'm undertaking a CPL(H) course as well as a B. Geoscience :D

What are your current responsibilities?

Everyone seems to think mint/mint choc is disgusting. So mint/mint choc I guess.


What is your general fashion style? (eg: punk, glam, sporty, girly etc)
Just plain I guess, nothing attention seeking I currently just wear shorts, shirt and a jacket. But my friend and I are going out mens cloth shopping at some point in the next week to kit me out with some really nice smart casual clothes :D

What item of clothing do you wear the most?
My polo shirt from a promotion course with cadets two years ago

Pants or skirts/dresses?

How much of your skin do you like to show/cover up?
I usually only wear shorts with a shirt and jacket with volleys, so just my legs really, I also scrunch up the jacket sleeves. Yeah... I just realised that I haven't changed my style in like three years... Seriously, I still wear shorts, a shirt, and a jacket, with volleys...

What items of jewelery do you wear most?

What item can you NOT leave your house without?
Clothes and underwear. Duh. Also my wallet and keys.

Hair up or Hair down?
I dunno, my hair is short as in the strands are about 2 cm short. So I really don't know whether it's up or down, but I guess it would be up? I've grown it out a bit and because it's wavy it doesn't really sit up or down, it kinda just.. sits there...

3 Chickens No pets because living on campus at uni. But I would love to get a dog one day.
