About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding a mission... ironic, isn't it?

ABOUT ME

Since my birth I had to deal with many strokes of fate, but one of the worst was my displacement to Reken, a backwater far from any semblance of civilization, for most of my youth. Nevertheless I consider myself a open-hearted and tolerant guy. Weird and black sense of humor. After beeing in Poland for half an year doing a international voluntary service at a local kindergarden, I moved to Bremen in 2011 to study history and cultural science. Since Autumn 2014, I live in Leipzig, where I share a flat with my girlfriend

PHILOSOPHY

Atheist, unwilling to accept authorities. There is no meaning of life other the one you create yourself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people and surf couches, take part in some events if I feel like it - That is what couchsurfing is about, isn't it? ;-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Really positive. I meet some really cool and crazy people.

Interests

I love to read, enjoy music (especially on vinyl) and philosophize (alone and together with others) about life and existence. Getting to know other points of view towards life and existence is a think I really enjoy. I am interested in many different kinds of culture - written, sung, painted, modeled, filmed...

NOTE, IMPORTANT!: I am also interested in hosting people who really still breath the spirit of old Couchsurfing and are also interested in me as a person, not just as a free hostel. To prove that you have looked at my profile instead of sending the same standard request to 10 random people, include the words "Jex Thoth" in your request. Otherwise I will NOT host you. I am sad that this is necessary, but I get more and more requests from people who apparently do not give a damn about the people they meet and just care about a free bed. I tolerate people who have a different vision of CS. But please also tolerate mine. And please don't consider this as unfriendly or harsh. Somehow I get far more requests than I can handle . So my codeword is just a way of choosing the nice people and make sure that the stay will be nice for both of us :-)

Music: A bandwith of Metal (foremost Doom Metal, Stoner Metal and Power Metal), Hard Rock and Psychedelic Rock, but also some Classical Music, Country, Singer/Songwriter. I have pretty broad taste.
