CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

About me... Well, I guess this is the hardest part to full in!

- I'm about 1m70 and have short dark-blond hair.
- I used to have really long hair (my pony tail almost hanging up to my bottocks), but decided to cut it 2 years ago.
- I'm very open-minded and think everything deserves a chance to get to know it better.
- I've worked in a shop for about half a year now, and am planning to work in the printing district after my traveling.
- I've got two homes I grew up. One's my parents in a small town called Eeklo, and the other one's in Brugge, with my aunt and uncle who helped taking care of me and my sister when were younger.
- I'm planning to follow 2 after-work studies starting in Februari. One that would be helpfull in the printing-bussines, and the other one is to able to start a bussiness of my own some day.
- I'm in a relationship with a really nice girl who studies Psychology.
- I like pets.
- I'm a movie-fanatic. I'm obsessed with genres, actors, film-history and film-music. I've got a collection and go to film-festivals. Last summer I've been to the World Soundtrack-awards at the Ghent-moviefestival.
- I'm a thinker. I'm psychologically minded (don't let it scare you though ;)) and over-think each situation more than once. i like to philosophize about all things in life.
- I'm an out-going type. I can't stay one evening at home, I just can't. Even if it's just for a drink at the local pub for an hour.

PHILOSOPHY

- The glass isn't halfful or half empty, you just gotta fill it up yourselves.
- You get what you give.
- The early bird get's the worm, but the second mouse get's the cheese! ... Or something like that.
