It' s just perfect: I am going to leave Germany to work in NYC this summer, my favourite city. I am going to have time to travel nonetheless - and i might meet you somewhere down the road.
They wanted me to write what people say about me. This is what I came up with:
Why does he read ALL THE TIME?
Why is he interested in all that stuff?
He should be more earnest sometimes.
He should be more hilarious sometimes. (Pick one, people!!!)
I can ask him almost everything, and he knows it.
He is really too old to listen to rap music.
The Mix-CD he did for my birthday is pretty good, though.(Yes, I still believe in the power of the Mixtape)
And, of course: I would be happy to have him sleep on my couch.

Go out. Late.
Try to teach myself the guitar, starting to play bass guitar again and putting together music on my computer. But I wouldn't call it making music. That would be offensive to all the people who make real music.
Watch good TV shows - Sopranos, Wire, Mighty Boosh, Peep Show, anyone?
