About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it’s in my basement, let me go upstairs and check.

ABOUT ME

I need a constant change, different places, people, situations. When I don't know what I feel, my stomach tells me. I sing all the time. When I was 9, I had a philosophical phase of contemplating about the meaning of life. It passed soon when I discovered boys. My first book was Key around my neck and my first CD Alanis Morisette Jagged Little Pill. I have 7 boxes of memories. I don't remember 75% of it. I can't say NO to parties, people and nature. When I discover amazing lyrics, see wonderful art or read a great book, I cry. I also cry when I'm extremely happy...which is often :) I was born as the smallest baby in the hospital. Consequently, I got my name by a Croatian song "Marijana, sweet petite Marijana". Now I'm 182cm. I never wear undershirts and belts. I'm a cat person. But I have a dog. The craziest place I worked in was Bodycasting Studio in Brighton. Castings of private parts. I'm addicted to costume parties and climbing trees. I'm a sucker for motivational quotes. Every time I said Never!, I did it. I don't say Never! anymore... I love weird and absurd facts. Consequently, I'm an expert at googling. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. My parents know what I should be when I grow up. I don't listen to my parents. I tried a normal, average life once and realized it's not for me. I already left everything I had for no plans and no security so many times and I liked every little bit of it. This time for indefinite. :)

PHILOSOPHY

Not being aware of scientists "proving" it cannot fly, the bumblebee succeeds under "the power of its own ignorance" "Don't fear god, Don't worry about death; What is good is easy to get, and What is terrible is easy to endure" "It has happened to all of us: one day, one ordinary day when we imagine we're making our routine rounds in the world with ticket stubs and tobacco shreds in our pockets, our heads full of news items, traffic noise, troublesome monologues, we suddenly realize we are already someplace else, that we are not actually where our feet have taken us." "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning is what I love the most. So please teach me. :) I can share my experiences in living in different countries, hitch hiking as a solo girl, travelling with a dog and I am sure many more that doesnt come up to my mind at the moment. My friend and me were doing our personal project Hitchhiker's guide to Christmas: Hitch hiking from Istanbul towards Europe dressed as Santa, Santa's Little Helper and Rudolf The Reindeer on our little journey to be a part of December euphoria by making people happy just by being ourselves - two weirdos dressed in costumes laughing and singing happy songs (in stead of buying expensive presents & decorating houses) You can see more on www.facebook.com/pages/Hitchhikers-guide-to-Christmas
