About Me


To learn a little more self-discipline! To develop a rich life with many facets.


I'm Alex, 25, from Wellington. I'm open, introverted but not shy, enjoy curious, bold people, I like talking about most social sciences, education, people, traveling to better understand the world.


Life is good by virtue of its existence. Those who say they can & those who say they can't are both usually right. I believe that education (not academic) and tolerance are the keys to managing life, and that teachers need to be leaders. I value quality over quantity (however quantity is not always bad), but sometimes, in consumer society, less is more ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

*Having read David Foster Wallace's "this is water" and then listening to the audio live
* Going out after it's been raining and smelling the ashphalt and trees - the association then brought back one of my first memories of when I was really little. Kind of like dejavu.
*besides that, just nature really, standing at the highest point on a mountain. It's hard to say, I feel that writing this kind of thing down never does justice to the actual experience and sounds trivial!
