I love doing creative works without having a ambition.Like it is a part of living.Not like a job.I love spending time with my family and close friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think everyday life we all can see and do amazing things.But for feeling amazingly different,i could say there has to be some conditions right about the moment:)The environment,my feelings,
That i could say the most amazing feeling that i have,when i was taking care for my grandmother.I loved her very much: )And of course then i can count that; a penguin and turtle bite me: )Actually i didn't do bungee jumping or any kind of exciting activity.But i think in everyday life we are seeing amazing things.It is our choice to think it is amazing or not.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching: )yes.I have some knowledge about art,movies,painting,drawing,making animation from every kind of material,using analog camera,playing table tennis,editing videos and so on...For learning part: )I think i am hungry for learning every interesting things;extraordinary historical and sociology events,cooking different cultures meals,learning different board games,learning different animal and plants kinds,(because i studied in Art Academy i was away from any kind of science: ) So i really want to learn physics.And for the sharing: )I think cooking with other people is for me the best kind of sharing type: )And also painting and playing some silly games also because in that situation you don't have to think your benefit.For example i was playing table tennis in the real tournament.And i couldn't be ambitious for winning.So it is more fun when you don't think it is more important or not( it is also true for the poker: )So you can beat me surely: ))
