About Me

ABOUT ME

People regarding me use adjectives like:
crazy,highly intelligent, charming, captivating, nasty, talented, irritating, too serious, prudent, sensitive, oversensitive, calm.

But I´d describe myself as a searching, curious, melancholic, ironic man. I sometimes do not understand in which world I live. I can´t imagine how different people are, when at least everybody wants the same: respect and love.

Throughout I am very fascinated by the multiple strategies humankind has developed to reach their aim.

So basically I am more a spectator than an actor.

But somestimes i wish I could turn down the engine of my life and ride along in the second gear, but it appears that boredom kills me.

So I am always in a rush: Moved about 20 times in my life. Lived in 5 cities in Germany. Lived in Tomsk,Russia and lived in Alicante, Spain.
Went to Yekaterinburg, Russia, for a year in August 2010.
and since 2012 I am living in Barcelona.

Be sheeple!

PHILOSOPHY

Every moment is a moment of rebirth. The unstoppable time makes us move forward. The hardest thing is to learn how to swim in that fast soaking river without sinking.
So be awake everyday and listen to yourself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

share experiences, sharing languages, sharing couche(s), sharing meals...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I love to see all the different people. In Russia I was in a real "beda" (an ugly situation) and was helped out. In Lisbon I was looking for an inspiring place. And found it.

Interests

a man got out on the street and saw a bird starting, what made him happy, saw a mom shouting badly at her daughter, what made him sad. Thinking about this he walked on to the pub where he had left his bike the night before. Came to university and sat down got bored by all the fakefacts that were presented to him. More and more grew the yearning for reading a book that was not related to his lessons. But a fact is a fact and one fact is: You have to do your degree to earn more money. So he goes home and reads all the shit they press into him. Doing this he motivates himself, for this will make him a better reader and also will make him know his languages better. But after doing this he goes for a walk into the nearby woods. Comes home, reads a book, dreams of the past, looks forward to the future and writes all that shit down, hating the people naming him a writer. For his hate he goes to the boxgym in the evening. Or goes to swim or goes to praise god in his choir, though he does not believe but simply wants to sing.

Music, Movies & Books

Tucholsky, Sarah Kane, Viktor Pelewin, Bulgakov, Chechov, Dostojewskij, Gil de Biedma, Kahnemann....but all depends depends on my mood

Film: last impressing movie: "Antichrist" by Lars von Trier

FightClub, Russalka, Lilja4ever, Amelie, Cheburashka Multiks

Music: lately discovering the Yiddish and Gipsystyle (Goran Bregovitch, Shantel, 17 Hippies...). That makes me crazy and laugh!
