About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get high without drugs, get rich without money, get to know life and love it.

ABOUT ME

Obviously there wont be enough space here to write all about me, but I'll try to give you a small image of mine:

I'm young and full of energy and I love to meet people and spend time with them, especially uncomplicated, honest, original, funny people, that just be themselves. I like to share and I'm always looking for something that I have in common with the other person. I like talking to anybody and I'm always trying to find something good, something innocent, something lovely inside of the people.

What upsets me most no matter where, when and how is injustice, corruption, discrimination, prejudice, hypocrisy.

Another very important thing u need to know to understand me is this: I can be really really sarcastic sometimes. For example when I say that I'm a member of the group alternativ ways of consuming "because I love capitalism". That does NOT mean that I really love capitalism... -u know!

PHILOSOPHY

It actually is an endless topic, so I wont even try to explain it here. Let's talk about it, I'd really like to.
