About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm about to learn a new language - but haven't quite decided which one...

ABOUT ME

haaave you met me?
I guess not, but maybe you should.

I am curious about almost everything what is different to what I am used to. I hit the nighlife in the clubs of Nürnberg as well as I have serious conversations about girls, travelling, culture,literature and yeah, all the stuff life is made out of. I am humorous and can't take things too serious, I'm outspoken and play the bass guitar (which I enjoy the most when one of my best friends is playing his guitar).

Since both my grandpa and my dad are writers I like writing though I'm not very good yet.

I enjoy everything what is well-made, quality, not just to be bought and thrown away a few days later. For the same reason, I also like to repair things, to make them work again.

I like jumping into lakes and have a swim in gentle summer nights, I like sleeping outside looking up to the universe. I also like walking barefoot, wearing hats, changing boring things of everyday life into something highly enjoyable by giving them a soundtrack. To follow my ideas, to read and write, to meet really good friends, have a beer and talk about all the things which really occupy us in our lives. To learn long poems by heart when I'm travelling. Moleskine notebooks & to write in them. And I like to listen. To stories, to anecdotes, to people's ideas and plans and lives. And, of course, to music.

PHILOSOPHY

there is no "main philosphy" in the world, which can be the personal philosphy of someone. it has to be developed by everybody on his own, by experience, talks, friends and strangers and life.

well, humor is one of the most important things for me. with a smile many things are much easier :) And I'm kind of a fan of the stoic branch of philosphy. I found it quite usefull while travelling.
