About Me


Experience life in all i can get


After finishing my studies of political science in Vienna, its now time to move on. Seeing some new places, meeting new people, and probably getting a hint of what life actually is about.
i recognized, that i´m a little stuck in a life, that doesnt have the right goals anymore. i don´t want city life, senseless consumption and superficially meeting people.
but still, i´m an eternal optimist and i do smile a lot. i´m interested in almost everything and easily very enthusiastic. and when i´m hungry, and there´s nothing to eat, better escape :)


i try to feel happy and satisfied in as much moments as possible, to recognize how beautiful and amazing life in general with all its different facets is.

oh, and anything goes. and everything happens for a reason :)

Music, Movies, and Books

i am not really the cineastic type, i don´t know why, but movies don´t catch me as much as books and music do. i never go to cinema and i hardly watch any film to the end, because most of them start to bore me soon. but i like documentaries. films that i really like despite this are mostly "arthouse films" like donnie darko, the virgin suicides, jeux d´enfants...

Thanks god it´s different with books. when i have spare time, i love reading, and totally falling into a book. i totally adore terry pratchett and i´m proud of saying that i own every single book he wrote... ;) but i also often read non-fiction like novels, history books, or books about politics and stuff... (due to my studies, to be honest ;) )

i´m extremely addicted to music, theres no way without... when going out i like electro, because in my opion its the best one for dancing, it is so powerful... i also like this singer songwriter stuff,and more, like, alternative/indie bands...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life in general is awesome, hard to pick one single moment... for example i love the feeling in your stomache when a plane takes off. or the feeling you have on an airplane seeing the clouds. when you stand on top of a mountain. diving and feeling completely weightless. the first days of spring, sitting in the grass with nice people. the sound of birds and the sunrise when you walk home after a long night out. listening one catchy tune and your feet begins to move. meeting new people and in one second you are connected like you know each other for ages. and all that stuff ;)
