Hello and "PLEASE READ this before sending a couch request" !!!
I have been hosting since long ago in couchsurfing and I enjoyed it back then but lets be honest. It is not the same. Recently I keep getting couch requests from surfers (only non-Iranians) in which they are very nice but when I accept them they decline it saying they managed it with some other host. I Hosted alot but seriously I don't want to 1- be ready to share my house 2-spend time answering couch requests 3- spend time hearing that surfers managed with someone else at the end.
So seriously don't include me among the MASS couch requests you are sending.
if you have read this please include the keyword "mass couch request" in your couch request.
I am siavash,
I am 27.All i know about my personality is what other people told me till today. the friends that im so close with keep telling me "are you kidding?are you serious or you are pulling my legs?" or "come on, i know you are playing with me." or "how come you dont know the answer of that.it is the simplest matter in the world".these responses occur when someone says something and i haven't heard of it or its not that much a popular or important matter.and when i seriously ask them about it they get angry and think i know the answer of it or im acting socratic and by asking these questions i want to lead them to dark places.
the fact is i'm just eager to learn.i want to gather knowledge from every aspects of life.and one reason that i decided to host people from other countries is learning first from their cultures and then their experiences in life.in my house we have a terrace that is my favorite place(after refrigerator).i like sitting there reading my favorite book and time to time watching fields and mountains.
i believe in this poem by Lord Byron
"I have not loved the world, nor the world me, --
But let us part fair foes; I do believe,
Though I have found them not, that there may be
Words which are things, -- hopes which will not deceive,
And virtues which are merciful, or weave
Snares for the failing: I would also deem
O'er others' griefs that some sincerely grieve;
That two, or one, are almost what they seem, --
That goodness is no name, and happiness no dream."
still there are some good people

I live with them.I make my house beautiful with them,use them to sleep on and many other usages.anything about english literature.all i can say is you should take a look at my bookshelves.writers like:
Kazuo Ishiguro,keats,byron,hemingwaty,virginia woolf,dickens,albert camus,marquez,E.m forster,...and Kafka and Kafka and Kafka.I'm a bit crazy about Kafka.The world had Kafka and only Kafka in the modern time.it's always Kafka and Kafka.One day I would go to Prague to his tomb and hug him.He changed my K.Waked the K inside me.

mostly old musics.I live in the past. Those of Bob dylan,johnny cash,leonard cohen,Roy Orbison,david bowie,Elvis presley,From Cohen I like "dance me to the end of love" "waiting for the miracle" "bird on the wire" "chelsea Hotel" "avalanche" "hallelujah" "fmamous blue raincoat" and his new album Old Ideas.some of his songs I have listened to for 1000 times like Famous blue raincoat.Also Elvis is the best.He truely deserves the title "The king".From Johnny Cash I like "ring of fire" "walk the line" ...
from modern singer I can mention Baxter Dury, Katy perry, Eminem(it's not I like these last two so much but the fact it I think Katy perry is more serious in her career in comparison to the other female singers,and about eminem I should say he is weird.seriously!!How is it possible that he is so great?I mean for a second just forget about all those prejudices that you don't listen to hiphop music or you don't like it for any reason and try to find out how is it possible that he knows this career vey well.How he is so matched to singing,to this community?).From French singers I should mention Lara Fabian(though many French people make fun of me for loving her.I don't care.The lyrics are good.Also it helps me improve my french.)also Jacque Brel(no one can make fun of me for this one hehehe he is great),...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
one night camping in the middle of the forest and in the midnight a horse started to eat my tent.
another night just when I started to sleep a cattle of cows wallked a bit fast just near my tent.I mean they are cows.They don't understand it is a tent.I was thinking that "what if they were some meters on my directions?"
with the help of people of CS i managed a birthday present for one of my friends currently living in Romania.I asked people around the world to make short videos saying happy birthday to my friend in their native language and wish her a nice birthday. I could surprise her by this birthday gift. In that video I had birthday wishes from all continents.
I started to help people of CS by teaching them English and basic French. So a while ago I posted some messages in some groups and said I am ready to help those who want to practice their English. Just because I like this community so much.
