make myself study German :)
friendly, conversable, eager to learn more about the world and people. I'm fond of studying foreign languages, enjoy travelling and making new friends. A bit shy and modest, but I'm working on it :D ;)
wisdom is knowing what to do next, virtue is doing it
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've hosted a couple of friends from Germany and Russia.
communication with various people, making new friends, studying languages and culture of other countries. discovering the world for myself ;)
Music, Movies, and Books
MOVIES: Vanilla Sky, Alfie, Meet Joe Black, Sliding Doors, Elephant, Vozvrashenie (Rus), Chronicles of Narnia, Life is Beautiful (Italy).
MUSIC: various from classical to hard rock: Linkin Park, Ace of Base, Blink182, Good Charlotte, Prodigy (yeah, yeah, I know what you are thinking about ;) :D), Scooter, Rammstein, Evanescence, Emma Shapplin, Enigma, Gregorians, Nautilus, Beatles, Elvis Presley. There are two music instruments that drive me crazy: guitar and piano. I grew to like this "Mockingbird" song (Eminem), but only because of piano playing as the background. sometimes it seems to be an advantage not to hear some words of the lyrics and being able to concentrate on the music, coz the sense of the lyrics leaves much to be desired sometimes. you know what I mean ;)
BOOKS: F.Scott Fitzgerald ("The Great Gatsby" especially), Oscar Wilde ("The Picture of Dorian Gray"), J.D.Salinger ("The Catcher in the Rye"). I also read various books concerning linguistics and psychology.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The last thing I remember was spending a night with the whole bunch of my best friends in a winter forest hut sitting on the floor in front of the fireplace singing songs and playing the guitar. soft music, candles, happy faces..THAT was magnificent. It brightens your spirit up and takes you away from the world for a while ;)
