About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Share my joy of living!

ABOUT ME

I'm simple, drama free, easy to talk to, friendly and warm. Sometimes I'm angry and stubborn. Sometimes I go deep to my own world and don't see anybody around me.
I guess I wouldn't go along with hypocrites because in a certain level I'm still quite naive and dreamy but in the same time I'm also very down to earth. Damn, it's always so hard to tell who you are... :)

PHILOSOPHY

Do things that scares you every day. Unless it's riding a bike without breaks down the steep hill right into the lake. Done that - not proud at all.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Whenever I find my place here in DC I'll try to host. For the moment I'm enjoying CS happy hours every week!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It has all started in Milan having aperitivo with a friendly and kind Italian guy (hey Alessio!:) and it has been impossible to stop since then!

Interests

Architecture, love and martini :)))

Ok well, there are lots of other thing I'm loving to do: trying challenging sports and activities (like wakeboarding, paraplanes or hitchhiking), poetry, creative writing (now I'm supposed to write this blog about my life in the US, haven't started yet!), painting, traveling, exploring city I live in, tasting new foods, jogging, too much thinking (lol) :)

Music, Movies & Books

Music: that makes me dance or dream. The XX, Fink and Bon Iver would be my favorite I guess but there's so many good songs it could take forever to tell. And I do enjoy good Lithuanian music (you must listen to Jazzu, Golden Parazyth and Happyendless!).
Movies: that make me laugh or cry. Or both. I love independent cinema, like European cinema festivals - they always show something great! (like Intouchables - this is what I call god sense of humour). And I always enjoy movies from Inarritu.
Books: those which tell a good story. My favorite is Silva Rerum - an amazingly written story about 17th and 18th centuries in Lithuania. I'm praying everyday this book would be translated to English.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Born.

Teach, Learn, Share

According to Dante in the Divine Comedy, Heaven is only for those who are never fully satisfied with what they are/what they have because a human soul, if it exist, must always have something to look for, to improve, to go further. I learn from these kind of people who are happy because their journey is their happiness. Like grandmas learning new languages or a fifty-something man changing his profession. Never stop!
