About Me


do it right


I can be unpredictable. I am somewhat impressionable, so many things effect my status of the moment. If I really get to be me, I am a wildchild, but sometimes I have inhibitions, or just don't feel like it. Sometimes loud fun is what does it for me, othertimes peacefull dreaminess, sometimes just being serious and laborous. I got my MSc in Conservation Land Management from Bangor in Wales in 2012, did an internship in a forest protection NGO in Petrozavodsk in Russia in 2013. Travelled some more, tried woofing in the US, and now back to basics - looking for a job, trying to pursue my interests :) I want to be a good and hard worker, but at the same time stay healthy and happy. AND hang out with good people)


Freedom is so important. The feeling of freedom. What freedom includes or requires is a good question for discussion ;) Also, small doses of glucose and bigger doses of adrenalin sometimes make me happy like nothing else, and being able to get those things at certain times could well be freedom for me.
So.. being free is getting what you want? On the other hand that could be an addiction which is the opposite of freedom. I wonder if people without any kinds of addictions exist.
Anyway, being free to do what you want, doing usefull things with your life, being good at them, being happy, being healthy, remove the exsistential spam + a small dose of mischeif is my formula for meaningful living.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skiing in the mountains in winter 2008 was definitely amazing, but really life consists of amazing moments for me. They may not last very long, but they are all around. Just gotta take your time in life, do what feels right. There's nothin more amazing. well yeah, of course babies are amazing etc etc.
What keeps on amazing me time on time again, is the beauty of nature, and how it sometimes makes me feel. No book of fiction can superseed the real thing. Not to say I don't like fiction. Magic and sweet things are of course always in fashion.
anyhu, not gonna write my whole biography of amazingness here, have to meet me :P
