About Me

It's hard to describe myself since everything changes all the time, especially while traveling. I also don't like to pin down parts of my personality, it seems to make it more solid. My personality is quite paradoxical, sometimes I'm very quite and introvert other times very extrovert, like a wave shifting with the flow.

I'm also traveling around the world, so everywhere is my home.

My main goal is to become more "subtle" and that may be one of the reasons this flow is always going on, it's the natural state of letting yourself go, what you are, the personality. With this becoming I'll hopefully some day finish my book and build some sustainable place somewhere in nature, to nurture and open minds. There are so many things to accomplish while calming the mind at the same time

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Meeting interesting people everywhere I go.

Interests

I have so much interests, mostly in field of self development/spirituality/mysticism.
I spend a lot of time on writing, reading, thinking and making digital art.

I was in art school and I like to make a lot digital things: http://pieterjossa.tumblr.com/ but I also make non digital stuff like paintings and statues. I'm mostly concerned in making kitsch and assimilating the time I feel we live in. Digital is just a medium of expressing, like painting or writing, which for me fit these times, I can express myself in another reality/dimension which tends to replace the current reality we live in, that does not mean that I support it, I'm just here to point my own experiences out.

I grew up and worked in the kitchen for most of my life so I like to cook also. I've also done some graphic/programming/web/3d design.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Synchronicity and synchronized with other people. Made some really good friends in a short amount of time.Had some lucid dreams, and talked with some people in it. Surprised myself with the idea that i was alive, the most obvious and the biggest surprise of them all. Felt the very deep emotions. Had the most crazy parties with the most crazy people, dancing until sunset with strangers. Spoken to death relatives in a lucid dream. Been saved by a street dog from other hostile dogs. Being lost in Bangkok.
