About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Being alive and living. Waking up and keeping on dreaming.

ABOUT ME

If daydreaming was a paid job, I would be the wealthiest person on earth :) Seriously. In real life, I work with people, and from autumn, I will be student again, I feel I have found the field which I love and with which I can help people to ease their burdens and release them from anguishes, as I needed that when I went through what I went through for many years. I love music. I am a mixture of normal and weird, introvert and outgoing, overthinker and spontaneous. I think this does it for a short introduction :)

PHILOSOPHY

"Dreaming is not only an act of communication; it is also an aesthetic activity, a game of the imagination, a game that is a value in itself. Our dreams prove that to imagine - to dream about things that have not happened - is among mankind's deepest needs."
- Milan Kundera

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'"
- Jack Kerouac

"If you don't become the ocean, you'll be seasick every day."
- Leonard Cohen

“Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it.” - Somerset Maugham

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment, I cannot offer a couch, but I will gladly show you around, hang out, take walks, have good talks. I hope to help you enjoy the time spent here in my town.
On the other side, as surfer, I would like to look for the same, plus I would also like to find couches every now and then. I would really like to get to know new places, people, ways of thinking, perspectives and widely said, have a good time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Only overall positive experiences at the moment. I'll be traveling for a while soon, so that will give me new insight on it. For how I've known it so far, it's simply great.

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
— Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations

Interests

Music - listening, singing in my mind, out loud when I'm alone, even do karaoke with a bit of 'help' and also planning to learn to play the guitar and/or the piano.
Good food and Cooking
Dancing
Books - Reading
Nature
Psychology

Music, Movies & Books

As I mentioned above, I love music. I always like rock, alternative, indie (Bon Jovi (the '80s-'90s), The Smiths, Radiohead, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Franz Ferdinand, Placebo and so on) and then so many other genres (jazz, classical, some pop, trance, even some country, etc.). Depending on my mood, on feelings, on situations, music is always there for me and there's always a song that fits perfectly.
In movies, I mostly like dramas, but I'm not exclusive about it, there are good movies in every genre. Honestly, I haven't really watched movies lately. A few of my favorites: Big Fish, Shawshank Redemption, A Beautiful Mind, Fight Club, (500) Days of Summer, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Good Bye Lenin!
I love to read, and novels are my all time favorite. Too much to say here about this subject, but here are a few authors I enjoy: Erich Maria Remarque, Thomas Mann, Milan Kundera, Lev Tolstoy, Fjodor Dostojevskij, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mikhail Bulgakov...

Teach, Learn, Share

I think we all have something to learn from each other, which implies we all have something to teach, whether it's good or less good, whether we're aware of it or not. And what we learn from each other and what we teach each other solely depends on where we are currently in our lives, in which stage of our self-discovery.
