About Me

CURRENT MISSION:
Seek and dig authenticity(you, cos u r breathtaking!)

ABOUT ME:
* Nonchalant introverted curious empath, otherwise just ordinary guy.
* I'm quite fond of people, such lovely creatures!
* Absolutely cannot stand misunderstandings, because of that always trying to be extremely straightforward and brutally frank.
* Dark humor addict, you've been warned.
* Don't like small talk, highly prefer deep vis-a-vis conversations to group discussions

ABOUT MY WIFE: bright and pretty damn funny
ABOUT MY CAT: Entirely white, fluffy, bloodthirsty bastard with heterochromatic eyes

PHILOSOPHY:
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Primarily to meet/help various people and make friends: CS is the community that encourages to do exactly that.
PS: Just about no one knows whom they must meet :)

Interests

Anthropology(mostly cognitive science/psychology), applied ethics, computer science and many other not so boring things like diving, board gaming, guitar, pointless arguments, forcing ppl to answer personal questions and overcoming my fears

I'm in always in a mood for trying/learning something new, lazying and quietly observing surroundings.
And almost never in the mood for clubbing(loud places in general), would like to change that tho
Wife: Mostly the same + handmadeing, drumming, painting, ashtanga yoga, qigong

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Thinking, fast and slow(Daniel Kahneman), Who am I?(Ramana Maharshi), HPMOR, The Mysterious Island(Jules Verne), Story of Your Life(Ted Chiang), City(Clifford D. Simak), Reinventing Your Life(Jeffrey E. Young), The Art of war(Sun Tzu), The Art of loving(Erich Fromm)
Prefer silence to music
Prefer anime to movies

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There will be 2:
0. recognized the true value of kindness and gratitude
1. did an improvised standup with 0 experience, that was hell of a stress

Teach, Learn, Share
