Dreaming big and working on my dreams...
Sometimes very humorous, communicative, emotional, fun-loving and so and so on... Well, usually all that depends on the atmosphere and the people I'm with.
I always try to THINK POSITIVE. Usually I do things I like - this has been the greatest luxury for me during my time as a student.
I can see advantages in negative experiences and find good things about everybody I meet. I beleave that "problems" are products of our minds! At least I try to live this idea, although in our crazy Western world it's difficult to believe in it, if you're not enlightened...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of my most amazing experiences ever has been taking part in the "Empathie-Festival" in the village of ZEGG (Centre for Experiential Configuration of Society): http://www.experiment-empathie.de/festival.phtml.
Another amazing thing for me has been living in Barcelona for more than one year and in Berlin for 2,5 months altogether! Both cities are magical places!
Besides that I had a great time with AEGEE, being part of Europe´s biggest students organisation with its visions of an united Europe, workshops, great people...
Some of my most amazing experiences with AEGEE:
Being with almost 1000 members at the "Agora" in Warsaw, than hitch-hiking back to Munich. Or:
Having a party at a ruin on the top of a mountain, the gorgeous panorama of the Catalan Pyranees around us, all of us singing "With or Without You" of U2...
I worked on the concept and management of an intercultural project called AEGEE Media Exchange. People from Madrid, Istanbul, Cambridge and Vienna participated in one week of photographing/filming on case studies about culture of everyday life in Munich. The outcome: Lots of great pics, some extraordinary anecdotes, contacts and friends in all these cities and much more.
A really beautiful documentation video about AEGEE:
Listening to the audio book "THE POWER OF NOW" by Eckart Tolle - it totally changed my view on life!!
Two months of CS related experiences in Berlin - and I'm addicted to both!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can suggest you many interesting places, activities and people in Munich, Barcelona and Berlin.
I'd like to play the piano again for one day and rediscover my painting/drawing skills. I want to learn more about photography, how to crochet birthday cakes and many other things!
