About Me

CURRENT MISSION

humor, love, hugs and conversations. And cafeine.. Tons of cafeine..

ABOUT ME

Im a vegetarian, musician, I also try to write poetry and texts.I study International Development and live for the day that I'll see children smile and knowing that Im the cause of that. Racism, sexism, and homophobia are not my cup of tea and dont really get along with people supporting these beliefs .I enjoy meeting new people from diverse cultures and hear their stories. Basically nothing excites me more than learning new things.

PHILOSOPHY

"-What is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?
-What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?".
This dialog I guess represents my whole philosophy about life, and thus, my way of living. I wake up every morning, knowing that this life and world of senses isnt going to be forever, so I try to enjoy my stay here as much as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to host and travel and meet people. As many as I possibly can. So far I've only hosted twice, and been hosted once. And want more of both!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

First time I heard of the concept of Couchsurfing I found it really revolutionary. And based on my experiences it really is. Its a breath of fresh air, a way to experience places like never before.

Interests

Music, documentaries, deep conversations, coffee, laughing, movies,trying new things, learning.

Music, Movies & Books

Im really into European Cinema, documentaries and stand up acts. These are my favourite while thinking on he spot.
Movies: Incendies, Cidade de Deus, The Sea Inside Me, Sweeney Todd, Never Let Me Go, In Bruges, Into The Loop, The Pianist, Casablanca, Wall-e, Up, Women Without Men, Sophie Scholl-The Final Days.

Documentaries: Its really hard to decide on favourites, because I see a new documentary almost daily. But I guess the ones that really stand out are Man On Wire, Life In A Day, Baraka, Heima.

Music: I enjoy all kinds of music really. I could write
5 pages full of bands that inspire me. But I think the most appropriate is to visit my last.fm page :)

Books: I only read philosophy books and encyclopedia entries. Im currently reading Nietzche and La Rochefoucauld.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Most of the things Ive seen that are extraordinaire, have to do with perception. So it could be a normal plain setting and place, but the conditions or the moments that exist or are leading towards it could make me view it as the most beautiful thing Ive ever seen. I get emotional while walking down the street on a dialy basis. And the most amazing thing ive done is to start learning how to live.

Teach, Learn, Share

As I mentioned many times above. Im dying to learn new things. Anything. Literally anything.

I can teach Greek, Albanian, English and some basic German to you. My methods of writing music and the equivalent programs, awesome vegetarian recipes and many more!

Sharing is one of my favourite activities whether it is content or Ideas, my hard drive is your hard drive :)
