About Me

ABOUT ME
The Protagonist - ENFJ
To girls I am known as "Mr Nice Guy" (but honestly I am not that nice and I'm pretty sick of it), to guys I am known as a "bro"! I am quirky, geeky, good listener, outspoken, idealist, opportunist, on rare and bad days I am a "whiner" LOL. I belong to the creative types. I love to meet people and experience different cultures and see the world or save the world! I love food as much as travelling. I would choose a good conversation over a movie. I think I am a crazy enough, a borderline intensive thinker/dreamer. I'm into psychedelics, you know what I mean :)

PHILOSOPHY

- A cynic is a disappointed idealist.
- Learn, un-learn, re-learn.
- I can accept failure but I can't accept not trying.
- One must learn to fall before learning to walk or run.
- Common sense is not common.
- If you can't believe in yourself, you can't believe in anything.
- What goes around comes around...Karma.
- Sometimes, it is about the journey and not the destination.
- What is light without darkness? Hate without love?
- Murphy's law.
- Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. (Albert Einstein)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Sleeping everywhere and anywhere when you can...I did my time in the army for 2 years, sleeping in a bunk with 27 men is pretty crazy, a 3 minute shower is a gift, a cold can of coke in the forest is a gift, sleeping 8hrs is a gift, a compliment from your fellow army mate is a gift, smiling at the end of the day is a gift:] Life is a gift...
