About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Life is too short to be taken seriously.

ABOUT ME

I am a Hungarian girl, born and raised up in Romania, currently working and living in Poland.
Quite a mixture, so trying to label me according to the "Where are you from" question, would just put you in the dark and would force me to launch a long philosophical speech on identity. So, unless you're already after your second beer and ready to discuss history and politics, try some other criteria to label me.

PHILOSOPHY

Challenge the unchallenged!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met great people, who inspired me by their view on things, simple ideas, which somehow did not cross my mind. I live in a multicultural environment; many of my friends are foreigners, so CS was not a totally new experience.

Interests

Travelling (I spend most of my life on buses, trains, planes - thank you Central Eastern European poor transportation network), alternative and rock music, modern literature, spending time with friends in cafes, pubs, bars.

I love learning languages, Polish at this moment. It's like being in love: you know that it might not be as interesting and nice to others, but you just enjoy it, you like spending time with it, it gives you motivation on other areas of your life.

I used to think that if I keep analysing things and looking for a logical explanation for everything I will become wise and will be able to advise those in need. What a stupid thought! After years spent on different theories about life I must admit that I haven't even figured out my own life. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

All time favourite: Uriah Heep - Lady in black

Other favourites at this moment: She Wants Revenge, The XX, Florence and the Machine, Adele, Anathema, UNKLE, Porcupine Tree, Pearl Jam, Coldplay, Myslovitz, The Verve, Aqualung, Stereophonics, Peterfy Bori, Quimby, Kaukazus etc.
Books and films are too many to list. Recently loved Yann Martel: Life of Pi.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Thinking of 2012, probably the bungee jumping from 70m at a music festival will be The Moment of the Year.
Also, the opening of Euro 2012 Poland-Greece game in the centre of Warsaw (not in the stadium) had an extraordinary atmosphere. Happy to be part of it, even if I'm not the ultimate football fan. Bungee jumping stays no.1 though :)
