About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Become a Scientist so I can build cities of trees.

ABOUT ME

Incoming text of bad english.

First of all, I am an "Alliteration" monster.

-I am not sure of what I want or what I am or where I m heading off but I definitely feel alive. Many moons ago I made the decision that home is no such thing as walls and a roof. I found the refugee and the place I always wanted to call home in me, and you know whats the greatest thing about turtles? They can travel around without ever feel like missing home
I knew that moment I was a turtle.

-I value kind and courageous people.
-I like the green color because it reminds me of a better place.
-I am not a movie person yet I love cartoons and anime.
-I don't know how to introduce my self, but I can read the forests, its plants and its fauna inhabitants. Can calculate the lightning and horizon distance and figure the approximate time using the sun, moon and stars movement.

-I spent a lot of time thinking of path optimizations and Ant colony optimization algorithms and why i think so much about path optimizations and Ant colony optimization algorithms. Then i get all dizzy and start thinking what my D&D character does when I'm not using him. Dude's a free spirit, he probably does elflike things and deciphers old manuscripts in Candlekeep.
It's not hard to assume I like video games also.

-I’m really good at Naming. I think I have a part of my brain set aside for thinking about names. There are a few words, phrases, ideas, that always come back to me. Sometimes I scratch that itch and attach the name to something.
-I also tend to walk down the street and imagining I am cyborg that can analyze objects in a molecular level, tracking down its functionality based on its chemo-biological components. No, seriously.

-I have a dry, deadpan sense of humor.
I can and do keep a straight face, and tend to win contests involving staring or laughing. I mix humor and seriousness without changing tone. If you can spot absurdity, you are amused. If you can't, you are confused.

-I have an attention span of about 11 seconds, so usually I'm thinking about science things that usually tend to HEY LOOK! A SHINY thing!!! no wait, that's just my hand....sorry, what was I saying? Oh right, about Poetry. Yeah, I 'm a good guy. Say hi. Or a Shakespeare's Sonnet whatever. (prefer 66 and 18)

PHILOSOPHY

I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Spreading the word.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have only hosted some friends and a girl I found on the streets which later became my flat mate, but I don't thing that counts.

I 'm new to this experience and so excited.

Interests

In times of energy I like biking, walking, swimming, definitely traveling and friends. To be on the move, in general.

In times of solitude I enjoy videogames, books, documentaries, flora, fauna and stories.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Anything related to Lovecraft, Tom Robbins, Phillip Pullman, Michael Ende and books with fantasy. Anything without magic is not understandable by me.

Anything related to science. Specifically about neuroscience, biology, genetics, psychology, astronomy philosophy etc.

Music: thats a tough one. I d rather say everything and sound lame then choose bands and artists. I have a fond for classic music and opera, vocalists and folk music, country and beautiful female voices.

Movies: another tough one. there is to many.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was volunteering in a non goverment organization in Greece for kids with cancers and blood diseases. I saw death and i saw hope in there, which I wont forget any time soon.

At the age of 14 I fell in love with my first girlfriend.
Looking back now i laugh, but back then it was serious business.

At the age of 16 I thought I was a rebel and I left my own house looking for a hug in the world. Some months later I returned embarrassed.

At my 20's I left my hometown in Greece completely broke and full of hopes for another country. Everyone thought it was such a brave thing to do, but I never told anyone how scared I was.
