About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Stop wanking around and finish my bloody degree before I'm 30-something... :-P

ABOUT ME

Trying to finish my studies while working, and both "main" activities are not even in a different city, but in a different country... Add to that my inability, or maybe, better said, my total laxness and complete disinterest in organizing my life around a set schedule, and you can see that it will likely take (much) more time than it could...

I'm straightforward, open, don't care much about niceties, but I'll do my best to make a positive impact in this life for myself and the people around me.

As for partying and going out; I'd much prefer a gathering of 10-20 of which half are acquaintances or friends of friends, than going out somewhere with hundreds inside, overpriced beer and no way to have an intelligent conversation with anyone. The village- or neighbourhood pub is in my opinion the best watering hole to spend an evening. Some of the best drunken nights in my life were accomplished in places like Kinlochbervie, Scotland, Elk River, Idaho and Gladsax, Sweden...

I love travelling, hillwalking and meeting folks. I'm always up for political discussions. Consider myself a community-oriented leftish Libertarian, (radical left on social issues, centrist on economic issues) I am not a pacifist, and unlikely ever to become one, and I'm extremely intolerant towards the intolerant. "Yes, I know I'm using the same methods as them when I beat up Nazi's, or when I say that Wilders-supporters are dumb and unethical, but hey, why bother having convictions in the first place about things if one doesn't think their convictions are better than those of another..." In short, I'm likely to be the least Zen-like person you'll ever meet in your life, but I'll still go out of my way to help others and set a good example.

PHILOSOPHY

1) If it needs to be sorted today, I'll be on top of it. If it can wait for tomorrow, well, let's have a beer...

2) Treat others like you wish to be treated - until they fuck you over, or try to make your life difficult for some stupid reason. From that point, treat others like they treat you.

Interests

Earth Sciences, Hillwalking, Travelling, Mountainbiking, Being as far away as realistically possible from major metropolitan areas...

Music, Movies & Books

Runrig, Christy Moore, anything Star Trek, documentaries, mainly on natural sciences.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Only one? I wish my life to be a whole fucking chain of amazing events, otherwise life isn't worth living...

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot, about a lot... It's always fun to talk to people which have the same... Conversations about women, football, music and films bore me after a while, although I like all four. I can hold an intelligent conversation in three languages, do my day to day business in five and give you a good piece of my mind in eight.
