live my life now
It's not easy to describe oneself, but it' worth a try :)
I'm a friendly and honest person who love to do anything that can be related to creativity. At first glance I might be a little shy and silent but when I get comfortable with someone new, I will show my real me ;)
That means that I'm open for nearly everything which might be interesting or simply fun, also if it's a last minute decision. I love to laugh and be a little bit crazy but I also like conversations and discussions on a variety of topics.
It's too exhausting to be prejusticed so accept the people as they are and enjoy the differences.
You can't change the whole world, but try everything to make it a bit better.
"Life is a journey, not a destination."
Having interesting discussions, do sports, read some interessting books, learn everything about other cultures, take pictures, hit the dance floor or preparing a meal, no matter what, I'm in.
I really love to cook and prepare desserts. Therefore one of my goals in life is, to try as much specialities from differnt parts of the world as possible. The one that needed the most currage by now is the rotten shark in Iceland. So if you have a recipe from your grandma, I would love to prepare it with you.
Music, Movies, and Books
I try to be open for every kind of book, film or music.
Depending on the day, I listen to Enya, Christina Perri, some meditative music, indie, alternative, house, electro, pop,...
I dance to every music when I'm in the mood. Which is as good as always :)
I read different kinds of books, like fantasy, romantic or sience fiction novels, books about psychology or philosophy and of course literature for my course of studies.
the Twilight saga; Stephanie Meyer
-> Yes, I am a fan, but don't worry, I'm not one of those screaming girls ;)
the House of night novels; P. C. Cast + Kristin Cast
other fantasy or si-fi authors: Cristine Feehan, Kersley Cole, Sergej Lukianenko,
some writings of Sokrates, Freud, Schoppenhauer, etc.
Vom Verzehr wird abgeraten; Hans-Ulrich Grimm
The Hundred-Foot Journey; Richard C. Morais
Building Social Business; Muhammad Yunus
I prefere dokumantaries like "Earth", "We feed the world", "Supersize me", "Zeitgeist: Moving Forward",...
but I also like fantasy, si-fi, action and dance movies or comedies.
e. g. Avatar, Harry Potter, Twilight, Matrix, Step-up, the cloud atlas, Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, A bug's life,...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I went abseiling of the Table Mountain in Cape Town with an hangover ^^
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to cook and also to show others how to do it.
I'm always interested to exchange opinions, experiences or any kind of knowledge.
Since I grew up in Austria I learned skiing right after walking. Later I decided to snowboard, just for a change. So if you want to try snowboarding or skiing I can help you.
