About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fix my profile so I don't sound like such a doofus

ABOUT ME

Um... well I'm not really sure. I'm not much into the whole auto-psychologising thing, I mean, what do you say? Without either sounding like you're self-depressed or just plain self-obsessed. Where's the middle line? Even now I'm coming across as kind of narcissistic. Okay fair enough, it appears more like very narcissistic. And I don't want that. Who does? But I couldn't just leave the section blank, that's no solution. People would just think that you were a creepy, hidey, spider trying to trap travellers into some sort of debauchery. And let's be clear on one thing: that's not cool. Good. I'm glad we could agree. So, in conclusion: I don't feel that I am in any possition to give a description of 'all about me' as it will be skewed by necessity, however, let us be clear on one thing: I'm not some kind of predator (I'm starting to feel like this constant reference to me being a "good guy" and non-malicious is perhaps not a good idea...)

So... to if the above description doesn't work, or you're just freaked out by the pleas of goodness, please accept the substitute below:

Hi everyone! My name's Nick and I want to be your friend! We are going to have such a great time together! I can't wait, I've got the date on the calender and am crossing off the days! I'm already prepared to say that I have developed an intrinsic bond with you just from you reading the profile. It's love! (At this point I start describing your features, and we both realise that this too was a terrible descision on my part)

So...... I like to travel and meet people? That's harmless. But doesn't really say much. I mean, I wouldn't be registered on this site if I didn't. But it's true!?

Hmm.. I'm afraid I'm going to have to turn to my old friend, silence, who holds the only possibility of helping me.

PHILOSOPHY

Treat everything as miraculous and specific. I'm not sure that I adhere to this. I suppose that doors no longer suprise me, but bicycles - they never cease to amaze! Imagine - It only has two wheels, but stands up! And goes fast! And doesn't require petrol! I could go on.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The thing that intrests me about the whole couch-surfing thing, is its aspect of 'life-sharing'. "Here's a small tasty portion of my life and in return I would love to sample yours (only if you're into that)" It's like a magical and ginormous delicatessan. And I love Deli's. What better way to broaden one's horizons than in the great deli of life? I participate by both supplying and being an ardent customer of said Deli.

I'll be travelling for the next 2-3 months, by which point I should have my own couch to return endless favours in Strasbourg, France. Trade with interest?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

If you have no faith in humanity, you have never been couchsurfing.

Interests

I think that my favourite activity would be learning new things, especially the things that make me feel stupid that I didn't actually know them. As for specifics: Music, books, languages, history, bicycles, being on losing sports teams, mathematics, and things that don't make sense (although I'm quite anally retentive. Ha! He said anal!)

  • books
  • reading
  • traveling
  • socializing
  • music
  • surfing
  • sports
  • history
  • languages
  • mathematics

Music, Movies, and Books

All three are fairly rad. I like movies that go "and now here's something that is perhaps not strictly related, but damn, its cool", books that don't forget that they are guided dream and imagination food and are willing to exploit this to toward unreason, and music that has driving rhythm and dirty blues.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Did I mention bicycles!
