About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Work hard, give, share. Study, graduate and get money. Go out backpacking, learn a couple languages more. Yeah, piece of cake :D

I like new ideas and concepts, but I prefer to discover them by myself -- it is not easy for others to "convert" me to anything. I have my own opinions, but don't worry, I accept and respect the opinions of others! I have a deep and abiding interest in human sciences, and the great social problems of nowadays. Very sympathetic toward the downtrodden, equality is my "battle cry!" I demand that those in authority to be fair to all. I'm known for being calm, cool, detached and objective.

I'm at my best when I can structure my environment in such a way that I'm surrounded by positive, upbeat people. I'm very helpful and understanding of the needs of others. Indeed, at times this can be a disadvantage, because I can be a sucker for anyone who needs help. Shy, dreamy, romantic in nature.

An idealist, I'm very curious by nature, enjoying traveling and learning about other peoples and cultures. I'm independent and free, and I want others to be that way, too. I believe I'm Optimistic, buoyant and cheerful, and that others like to have me around. I have an incessant desire to learn as much as possible about metaphysics, religion, philosophy and any other broad, deep subject. My life tends to be punctuated by bursts of energy and frenetic activity.

My ideas and thought processes do not come in an orderly, logical fashion.

I'm a friendly and outgoing individual, but close relationships are difficult for me to maintain due to my fear that they will cause me to lose my freedom or to disappoint one. I think I attract friends and associates who are exciting, different and sometimes a bit odd. I'm popular with others and enjoy working within a group toward group goals.

Very serious-minded and mature, I have the ability to take on responsibilities and to carry out important duties. I can also be trusted to be extremely practical and thrifty

PHILOSOPHY

We are what we choose to be. Everything is an illusion

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
