About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Wandering the Earth

ABOUT ME

Generally speaking, i'm all about having a good laugh, and enjoying my company and surroundings. I'm easy going and respectful.

I have been living in Australia for the last 7 years, however travelling in between jobs to some interesting country's. I just spent the last 2 months in Mexico learning spanish, and am heading to Vancouver in mid March to work for a year on a WHP visa.

PHILOSOPHY

There is a heaven, we live in it, i seriously believe that.

Being humans we naturally focus on ourselves but I believe for true enlightenment, for true peace of mind, our mind should be focused on the external. "Happiness is a by-product of an effort to make someone else happy" In other words thinking about yourself all the time = bad.

Treat others as you would have them treat yourself, obvious really but its good to remind oneself of this fail-proof philosophy
