ABOUT ME

Hello there This is siavash, I am 24.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. but 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.

PHILOSOPHY

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

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.
