About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn French.

ABOUT ME

I am an easy-going person. I like to make a lot of jokes. Experience new things, push myself out of my comfort zone. Alternating between deep discussions and superficial small talk.

PHILOSOPHY

My personal motto is: det er bedre å være gal enn normal.

Which means, it's better to be insane than normal. ;)

Of course I don't mean that you should be really insane as in psychotic and destructive to you and others.

But the thought of a normal life doesn't appeal to me. I don't want to have a 9-16 job doing the same things over and over again, just going to vacation to a hotel somewhere southern, the same things every day, every month and every year.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've only done surfing so far, I am currently traveling so I can not host anyone at the moment. I will definitely host someone when I get the opportunity.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Went couchsurfing in Croatia! It was a pretty fun experience. :p

Interests

I like: singing, dancing, playing the guitar/piano even though I am not in particularly good at any of them. I guess reading manga and webtoons, cooking, sports. Of course my favorite past time is aimlessly browsing the internet.

Music, Movies, and Books

The Shawshank Redemption, Fight Club, Good will hunting.
To be honest I don't mind watching movies that are not deep either, american pie or any other romantic comedies.

In terms of books I like: I dunno, I used to read a lot of fantasy books, but haven't done that in a while. Mostly now I read non-fiction books, but from what I've read I really enjoyed the Dan Brown books, A song of Ice and Fire and Harry Potter.

Music, I like Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Queen, Milky Chance, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys and just the contemporary pop songs I guess.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Queens day in Amsterdam was amazing, apparently the law is not that strict on that day. I found it funny that they were selling laughing gas on the street, haha.

The Sant Joan fireworks party in Javea, it´s amazing to see grown up people playing around with firework!

Went to Croatia to sail for a week and got caught up in a storm.

Teach, Learn, Share

Mostly all people.

Getting input from all kinds of people, ethnicity, color, religious belief, I want to meet all kind of people.
