About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I have no greater mission in life right now other than to enjoy everything as much as possible

ABOUT ME

I'm 28, living in Copenhagen, liking it a lot. I study Comparative Literature at the university, - I like that a lot too. Then I also am very happy about the place I live. It's one of those neighbourhoods that every major city can offer you; it used to be stuffed with crime on every street corner but now hipsters are trying to take over the place. They haven't succeeded yet, which gives it a nice atmosphere of in-between. I like that, as well.

I get grumpy if there's no good concert, reading, opening or theater play during the week. It's part of my everyday-life as well as studying is. But on that note, I do miss the countryside where I was brought up, and I wish I could mix the two. I guess I'm like everyone else in that way.

Five years ago, I fell and hurt my head. It has taken me some years to get back on track, and I do Tai Chi every single morning because of it. I also need to rest every now and then. Besides this I've quit smoking, drinking alcohol and coffee due to this, and you might call me a crazy too-healthy-lady for doing this, but it works for me. On that note, I don't have any prejudice against people who smoke, smoke away, drink or whatever. Been doing that before the accident myself, as well. I don't tell you this because I want to share a personal story in public or the like, it plays a minor role in my life today, but I am aware of that some people very much appreciate to be able to eat a bunch of meat, drink a bunch of wine and go crazy every now and then and that's not me anymore. - I'm not the CS you want to bring to a night club drinking all night long.

Last, but not least: I'm pretty easy going as a guest (so they say:) ) By the way, I hope you'll tell me whether or not you would like us to hang out. I would love to get to know you but I don't want to be a burden.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to meet you

PHILOSOPHY

My fictual turtle ate my manifesto so I can't really tell you...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've experienced Paris through couchsurfing, and it made my whole trip so much better.

17/04/2010, updates: - and now, also Cologne, but it's the same. Due to CS,I got to meet some nice people there

Interests

I like Tai Chi and it goes along with an interest in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in general. I'm also interested in literature, music, very contemporay art, going out, all the usuall...

Music, Movies & Books

(This is the hard part, there is so much! I'll give this an update later.) Music: Chimes and Bells, Alva Noto (at best when he's with Ryuichi Sakamoto), Carlis, Rihanna when she's at her best(but saddly, most of the times she's at her worst), Concerts: noise Books: "I Civil"(Amalie Smith), "Hjem er en retning" (Julie Sten-Knudsen), Jenny Tundahl, Vladimir Nabokov, "Antigone" (Sofokles), "Werther" (Goethe, -used to hate it, but after reading it 3-4 times, last time for a seminar which opened up my perspective,I found out how great it is, despite Werthers very irritating over-excited approach to life), Movies: Cassavetes "Love Streams" Extraordinaire experiences:
