About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to find myself.

ABOUT ME

I think, that I'm a big optimist. I like to experience new things. Also I believe that I'm friendly and an easy going guy. I enjoy spending time with my friends or with other people :).

This year I'm taking a gap-year because I don't know what I would like to do in my life. I think that it's better to spend 1 year thinking instead of suffering all your life doing what you don't like.

P.s. At the moment I'm thinking to study Social Anthropology but don't know if I really want it.

PHILOSOPHY

"Be the change you want to see in the world.â

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm actually a new CouchSurfer but I honestly hope to make my participation in this project as efficient as possible by hosting or meeting other interesting people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

To tell the truth I am new here but I am truly fascinated with the whole idea of CouchSurfing as it enables you to meet new interesting people and exchange different cultures, thoughts and ideas.

Interests

I have to say I'm a very open-minded person and a lot of things, that make life more interesting and beautiful, are interesting for me.

I'm an active guy and I enjoy lots of different sports like: basketball, volleyball, football (though I'm more like a fan than a player in football, I enjoy watching it a lot). Also I like skiing(although I just a beginner). By the way I enjoy playing poker.

My love for music is huge. I like a lot of different styles of music. From rock to electronic. I enjoy going to the concerts. The biggest event that I have ever attended is ASOT 500(in The Netherlands). Also I'm also a beginner guitar player and would like to improve my playing skills even more.

Moreover, I would like to say that History is subject which fascinates me a lot. I find myself interested especially in whole Lithuanian history, the history of 20th century. The civilizations of ancient Greeks and Romans also seem fascinating to me and that's why I'm so eager to visit the city of Rome in Italy at the moment.

Not long time ago I started to find philosophy as a very interesting thing. I think it helps you to find meaning in your existence and your life.

Nevertheless probably the most interesting thing for me is meeting new people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think this thing is only yet to come. Because me and my friend decided to do something crazy and unusual after our last exam in school. We both bought a one way plane ticket to Rome, Italy and we decided to go back home to Lithuania (about 3000km) by just hitchhiking with our backpacks. The funny thing is that on the 12th of July we are having our school ending party when we get our diplomas of graduation. So it's kind of a 'to be or not to be' situation but we believe this will only make our adventure more fun and adventurous. To our mind, a lot of people lack such spontaneous decisions which can make our life so much more interesting. We expect to meet a lot of nice and interesting people during this journey and to have many memorable impressions that we'll be able to tell about to our children and grandchildren in the future. And thanks for the CouchSurf community for letting us find even more interesting people during our journey!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a young person who is just in progress of finding his way in this life and trying to understand his goals of life. CouchSurfing community is likely to become my school, my university of life. Where people sharing their experience and stories will hopefully become teachers to me who will help me understand what I really want to do in my life and how I want to spend my precious and beautiful years of life. At the same time, I hope I can also become the same teacher to other CouchSurfers (even though I may be not so experienced and still young) and to create the beneficial mutual connection between both sides.
