a friend once described both of us like this: "we got glasses, we are pale and we are dorks" - well, well.
so, anyway, i am a 27 year old feminist environmentalist who is also heavily into politics and is about to write her master's thesis on the topic of degrowth.
i like joking around, meeting new people, walking the streets of any city, well-known or completely unknown, reading books, discussing politics, drinking wine in shady bars and dancing till the sun comes up. oh, and i also love travelling. obviously.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
well, by living, traveling and meeting exciting new people, i guess.
awwww, only one but it was better than i could ever have hoped for.
politics, urbanism, meeting new people, films and tv series, reading, writing, texting, anticapitalist alternatives like degrowth, transition towns etc., languages, programming, (queer) feminism, photography, riding my bike, sleeping.
