About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am getting older. Also learning french and exercising patience.

ABOUT ME

I was the third of three boys, all born and raised in Berlin. We also had a dog, who always was one year older and for the most time double my size. So I love to be out in the streets with people, searching for the moments the day has to offer. I did the normal germain school carreer: starting at the age of 7 and than 13 years of school. I took a year abroad, so it was 14 for me and when I finished (about 4 months ago) the question of university was a tricky one to answer.
I know exactly what I want to study, I just don't wanna go straight on, sitting in the next school chair.
So I sit in an internet cafe right now, in rue magenta, paris, learning french and typing this.
I am a calm person, or try to be. I can appreciate a good dialogue, I'm just not that much into chitchat or a huge lack of self-irony.
My number one priority is still learning(probably owed to my age) after that getting to know myself in new situations, eating, enjoying the green on a nice spot and clubbing(all for the same reason I guess)
Actual highlight: unravelling the mysteries of the foreign- the french language.

PHILOSOPHY

We are all the same. Being authentic is the highest task to keep up and my best way to be an inspiration. Trueth lies only in the moment. And the most important thing for me: since we are all going to die in the end, let's take this time seriously and never forget to stay lightly - a shared smile is worth any time^^

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was in a bad Berlin club with a very good friend of mine on a sunday night, when we ,et five french girls who where looking for a couch. They told us about the concept of CS - and we couldn't ignore the awesomeness of it. So they stayed for about 3 days and we had a lot of fun exploring our own city with them.
Now we are in paris and one of them got us une petit chambre near Gare du Nord. Globalizations first real positive leaf.

... it's about the moment to me. But I saw a couple break into laughter in the middle of a fight a few days ago - that still sticks with me!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am going to study rhetorics, philosophy and ethnology so I am deep into language as a concept;)
