About Me


Searching for my place under the sun :)


Damn! Actually, I have never liked to write in 'about me' section .....

I'd like to define myself as a citizen of the Universe, but I have my favorite places on Planet Earth. Extremely curious, always moving around, never able to stop anywhere. I always looking for something... and sometimes don't even know what... An eternal wanderer, I'd say.

So, I am not static at all. From time to time I wish to 'get up' and change everything.

I like to keep my adrenaline high: dancing, singing (in the rain), enjoying music, climbing trees, Arabic belly dancing, laughing, adventuring, sneaking around at secret places, get lost in the dark, go out and go crazy till the sunrise, laughing with no particular reason, discover undiscovered, dreaming my dreams, living my dreams, chasing my dreams....

I am very open and I have a point of view. I've had pretty crazy and unbelievable life experience, so now I'm wild and free, without any kind of limits. Everything is possible for me. I can make miracles happen.

I am very very passionate about everything. Can't live without passion..

Also so emotional, but I have learned to let go. Everything happens for a reason.

I don't like being pushed or to push things. Like to be spontaneous and relaxed. Love to be motivated!

Social, approachable with positive thinking. I'm also very independent and overconfident.

Quite open and love to talk about everything. Don't have any kind of taboos.

I like to keep busy with various things, but I can also be quite lazy.

I am an open minded hedonist, I have various vices.

I act younger than i am. Sometimes I even play hide and seek.

Wanna see, do and try everything. I get excited about small things. Blindly optimistic dreamer.

Сan be loud, but I just talk like that sometimes, don't be afraid.

I might overreact in some situations, be ironic or trying to prove I' m right :-D But without intention to argue.

I don't like when I have to wait. Especially with no reason.

Instead, we have to CATCH THE MOMENTS!
Every moment is unique and unrepeatable. Isn


-Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

-Passion makes the world go round. Love just makes it a safer place.

-I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell you see, I have friends in both places.
(Mark Twain)

-I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.
(Jim Morrison)

-When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. (Lao Tzu)

-Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

-I'm not 40, I'm eighteen with 22 years experience.

-One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.

-That's the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen."
(Charles Bukowski)

-there are worse things
than being alone
but it often takes
decades to realize this
and most often when you do
it's too late
and there's nothing worse
than too late.
(Charles Bukowski)

-Faith is all right for those who have it. Just don't load it on me. I have more faith in my plumber than I do in the eternal being. Plumbers do a good job. They keep the shit flowing.
(Charles Bukowski)
