About Me

CURRENT MISSION

study hard and see the world

ABOUT ME

I am 25 years old and a student at Münster in Germany. I speak English fluently, because I learned it in school for nine years and used it for one year every day and all day. I am open minded, helpful and most of the time in a good temper smiling a lot. I try to take live easy and still be successful. My addiction is traveling. There are many more places to see. ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

There are many quotations I like and which reflect my attitude of life so I want to share several with you:

no risk, no fun being thankful for what I have enjoy being young and study hard BUT see the world Carpe Diem

"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give" by Sir Winston Churchill Der Schmerz der Ungewissheit ist viel stärker als die Gewissheit des Schmerzes. -> translation: The pain of uncertainty is much stronger than the certainty of pain. Happiness is the only true measure of personal success. Making other people happy is the highest expression of success.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Due I love to meet people specially from other countries and learn about there cultures and live-styles I am always very happy if I can show someone around who comes to my city for the first time.

=> Additionally now I also have the chance to host people and I got a extra couchsurfing room. ;-) I had surfers already, but not only CS members. You can be the next one from CS. So feel free to contact me. I'm looking forward to show you around, get to know you and share a great time.

Teach, Learn, Share

Definitions & Prejudices sharing (I want to make you smile, please don’t be offended and instead let us take ourselves not to serious)

SOCIALISM You have 2 cows. You give one to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both and shoots you.

BUREAUCRATISM You have 2 cows. The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away...

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

SURREALISM You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

VENTURE CAPITALISM You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public then buys your bull.

A FRENCH CORPORATION You have two cows. You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

A GERMAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You decide to have lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 2 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A SWISS CORPORATION You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you. You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity. You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION You have two cows. You worship them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION You have two cows. Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No-one believes you, so they bomb the **** out of you and invade your country. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy....

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION You have two cows. Business seems pretty good. You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION You have two cows. The one on the left looks very attractive
