to become subject to a change.
I am currently in the process of change so it's really difficult to desribe myself now. It might seem some sort of self-dramatization, but it isn't) I strongly believe I have a sense of humour, honesty as well. Making small changes, having fun sometimes. That's basically it.
"Wo Es war soll Ich werden". Or it might as well be "Take it easy baby, take it as it comes ..."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I coach occassionally; i have surfed a few times.
I couched the drummer and the lead singer from a Moscow art-punk band the Post-Materialists a few years ago. Can't forget watching them taking a night swim in the Finnish gulf, and then the drummer also took a a handful of cashew nuts from the table and wrapped them in a bathing cap he used to wear when it was raining. So I can surely say it was a great experience.
The next experiences were 100 percent positive however.
i tend to be a little bit political, but i prefer just having fun or speaking about cinema or music. also might indulge into a long discussion about philosophy or psychoanalysis.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach English.
I also tend to speculate a lot about philosophy and art though my knowledge isn't really profound.(((
And I'm desperately eager to learn French, Spanish and German.
