About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Around the world with 20$ ?!

ABOUT ME

I'm a down to earth person who likes to have few good friends rather than a myriad of acquintances. I like to be in partys, meet new ppl (that way they can become friends) but I also like to be in scenic places and enjoy silence but the sound of wind in trees. Introspective but out-going I'm a paradoxal personality. Loyalty is my strongest trait I guess and procrastination my direst default... dunno what else to write here...I'll fill-it up later.

PHILOSOPHY

(scroll down for english)
Pour certain: Le but de la vie c'est d'être heureux(se) pour d'autre: Le but de la vie c'est d'être riche et puissant(e)
pour les boudhiste: Le but de la vie c'est de ne pas souffrir
pour Platon: Le but de la vie c'est de tendre vers l'idée du bien
pour Jesus: Le but c'est d'aimer son prochain
pour Nietzche: Le but est de surpasser les limites Mais la finalité de ces buts se retrouvent au même point: notre finalité; la mort. Peut importe ce que vous croyez être la raison de notre existence, toujours ce rappeler que c'est dans cette vie que cela doit s'acomplire. Vivez votre vie, pas celle des autres, pas celles de vos parents, pas celle de la société... la votre, en toute simpliciter, avec vos forces et faiblaisses, aptitudes et limitations.

For some the meaning of life is happiness, for others its to be rich and powerfull,
for Budhists its to not suffer
for Plato its to tend toward the notion of Good
for Jesus its to love the next of kin
for Nietzche its to overcome limitations
but all those goals have limitations: ours, death. Doesnt matter what you think the meaning of life is, all you have to remember is you have to reach it in this life. Live your life, not the one of others, or the one of your parents, friends or society...
Yours, in all simplicity, with all your strenghts and weaknesses, aptitudes and limitations.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Working-your-way-around-the-world, I proving the CS project can actually work, not just theoretically. I guess I also spread the news about the community: just by the time I planned my trip to Oz, 5of my friend signed-up after I told them about this place, helping the community to grow.
