About Me

Here are 10 sentences that should convey a bit of what I'm like (random order):
1) I want to do a full lenght triathlon.
2) I have finished half marathons in both running and skiing.
3) I'm studying Economics and Political Theory.
4) My second choice for uni was Law, third was History.
5) If I would not have chosen to go to uni, it would have probably been a cookery school, Le Gordon Bleu is still on my to-do list.
6) I have decided to travel through pretty much all of the countries of the world. This shows that a)I have a bad memory and I've decided to tackle that problem in such an 'easy' way and b) the sentence you'll probably find on every couchsurfer's profile: I love to travel.
7) I live in Estonia, which is in Eastern Europe. That should say some things.
8) I go crazy without hobbies: last year I started playing the piano, this year started fencing.
9) Out of all of the countries where I've been, Kenya was probably my favourite.
10) What I like in people is genuineness.

Music, Movies, and Books

Out of this trinity, I'd say the books category is my favourite. So let's leave that to the end.

Music: big fan. Disclosure, Flume, Chet Faker, Flight Facilities, but the occasional Kanye West or Black Eyed Peas won't hurt. My favourite youtube playlist varies a lot, so couldn't say there's one single genre that I'm a big fan of.

Movies: unfortunately I'm not the person who has seen all the movies of IMDB top 50, but that doesn't mean that I don't like movies. They just tend to be at the wrong place in the wrong time. If you can talk to your friends instead of watching a movie together, why not do that. Although there have been many influential movies that I have seen, it might just be that I'd rather do something than see something. If I had to name one, then Grand Budapest Hotel. Not influential, but just beautiful.

BOOKS: again, let's just name a few. Hesse's 'Siddharta', Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment', Kafka's ' Process', Illich's 'Deschooling Society', Orwell's '1984', Hornby's 'Long Way Down' and Tammsaare's 'Truth and Justice'.
