Yikes, an easy one. Guess, muhaha.
Well, let's go then.
I'm a student of theology, curious, truthful, trustful and possibly a bit weird...
That is best expressed in one of my favourite poems, it's German, but I translated it below.
Liebes Leben, fang mich ein,
halt mich auf der Erde,
kann doch, was ich bin, nur sein,
wenn ich es auch werde.
Gib mir Tränen, gib mir Mut,
und von allem mehr,
mach mich böse, mach mich gut,
nur nie ungefähr.
Liebes Leben, abgemacht,
darfst mir nicht verfliegen,
hab noch soviel Mitternacht
sprachlos vor mir liegen.
Dearest life, get hold of me,
keep me to the ground.
What I am I can just be
by becoming - unbound.
Make me brave or make me sad,
give me bliss or plague,
make me good or make me bad,
only never vague.
Dearest life, do not fly by,
that is our bet,
can't you see, the midnight sky
- speechless - lies ahead.

Obviously theology stuff: Karl Barth, Luther, Bonhoeffer, Nadia Bolz Weber is kind of my role model. And the bible!
One of my my favourite plays is "The good Person of Sichuan" by Brecht. I also adore Shakespeare's comedies, Georg Büchner, Ibsen and especially Anton Czechow.
And I love musicals, stuff like Cabaret, My fair Lady, Chicago and Jesus Christ Superstar, it's a dream factory ;)
More than that: Have you seen Sherlock??? Just do!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is love and be loved in return.
Teach, Learn, Share
Well, I guess the things I know best are cooking (I'm great at beating egg whites, I've been told^^) and singing, doing hair as well, so I can teach that within my limited possibilities. Also some guitar maybe, handcrafts, languages and philosophy/history/theology stuff, I'll try my best.
And I'd also love to learn about these exact things and anything more, especially those things I've never heard of.^^
