About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to find a mission.

ABOUT ME

When I grow up I would like to be something very dangerous and brave, maybe an astronaut, a fire fighter or a truck driver. I live in Barcelona and I have a love hate relationship with this town. Love it because it just feels so fuzzy and warm, but I can't stand the, how i call them "classical tourists." The ones that only want to see Sagrada Familia, wear sandals&socks, spend hours on La Rambla and Mcdonalds, go to Irish pubs for lunch, breakfast and dinner and walk on bike lanes and are orange.I really really love animals, any animal, you name it and I will love it. My goal coming to Barcelona was, settle down, not be homeless and have a dog. I am still working on all three of them.I like to eat and cook. I am not very good at both, but I am trying my best and I am sure one day I will make a meal that will not be based on pasta. I do have a bit of a flare for Latin American soap operas, Jersey Shore and Justin Bieber, but, hey, who doesn't?I really like board and card games! I´ve been a volunteer in Romania for 10 months and I've finished my very mature career as an au-pair/demon trainer/total slack in Madrid and right now I work in the most awesome hostel in the world - Barcelona Central Garden (unpaid advertisment:)I am trying not to lose my way in this big town and I really like to take photos of people. Especially homeless people.I do not like boredom. And normal things. And hipsters who are not hip. And nata. But you can try to change my mind about all of these things. I generally like to live. And sing songs while living.

PHILOSOPHY

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Interests

Silent/old films, modern/classical art that makes you feel alive, uking and guitaring around, documentaries, vintage photography, snowboarding, longboarding, diving, second hand anything, and newest one of all - riding motorbikes. I am always willing to jump into new adventures.

Music, Movies & Books

I listen to everything except german rap, like every movie that doesn't consist of jacky chan or american mainstreem idiocy, love to read books about people who live and not just exist.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I try to be first for the swings, I don't care how old I am.
