About Me

CURRENT MISSION

having fun and trying to learn how much i can

ABOUT ME

29 years old, open, weird, like traveling and meeting new people. I try to be organized, but sometimes have a hard time doing this ;) i'm clean, don't make mess around. Speak english, polish and russian. I am interested in advertising and designing. And think that constant learning is a great idea.

Most people consider me being weird. But in positive way :P and I'm kinda mix of extra and introvert. I actually don't control when it switch from one to another.

I'm freelance graphic designer and photographer skalska-karolina.pl
I work also fro TEDx Wrocław

PHILOSOPHY

it's better to regret something you have done than to regret that you haven't done that :)

real fun and learning begin out of your comfort zone

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host, surf and travel :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i hitchhike a lot so sometimes i'm forced to sleep wherever i am. I hosted few people, few people have hosted me, actually those days are the most memorable days during every trip. My apartment is kinda hostel for friends, family and strangers who turn into friends ;) Having fun, learning new things, drinking beer with other csers :) it's like being wiser and more opened with every single day :) the CS have gave me a lot of energy and I hope it will be like this for a long time.

TRAVELING :)

Music, Movies & Books

rock music (DM, sum41, queen, beatles, limp bizkit, queen, the clash, the cure, wombats, wolfshime, etc.)
thriller and crime books
books about design, I'm so naive that I would buy any book that has a word "design" on the cover ;) so yep, I'm a lil bit addicted to stuff like this, every logo book, every index of greatest web designs, you should try few websites about this, like 7rano.pl or bearskinrug.co.uk or made-in-england.org

tarantiono's movies (PF, Jackie Brown, 4 rooms, ingloroius bastards, etc.)
Guy Ritchie's movies (snatch, lock stock and two smoking barrels, sharlock holmes)

I have figured out that Leo di Caprio is not only titanic guy but can really ACT :) so here's inception (well I expected a lil bit more from this one), shutter island (book was better), catch me if you can

I have a secret crush on Jason Stathaam, I just simly can't do anything about that ;) and on Rober Downey jr

and i also like cheap crappy criminal books ;)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I still hope those things are still ahead of me.
But so far I've done a lot. I walked my first highline and overcame my fear. This feeling was so strong and I was so extremely happy to do this. I hh around the Europe. Last trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina alone was a great great lesson. For 2 weeks I decided not speak with bosnian people english - only polish-bosnian and I learned a lot.
Jumping on swingline in old quarry half filled with water (30m of water and 30m of stones).

Teach, Learn, Share

some russian, polish
few graphic softwares
climbing, slacklining or taking photos
making sushi
