About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking for inner piece.

ABOUT ME

I'm happy, when I feel, think, create. Sometimes I'm calm and relaxed, sometimes emotional and full of energy. I feel sadness, when I have to stay at home all day long. If there are people, events, impressions in my life, I feel alive.
I was fond of travelling by hitch-hicking. Possibility to get acquainted with various people was one of the main reasons why I liked to make journeys. Now I am a bit tired of such active way of travleing. I like when people share their experiences, views, impressions and create something together. That's why I don't like parties. I prefer to have a conversation in friendly atmosphere. I'm not a talkative person. I like to share with my impressions but it really important and interesting to listen to people's stories.
I enjoy doing sth together 'cause it's the way to know each other: cooking, helping, creating, etc.

I love the melody of foreign languages. I like to learn new things.

My cold hands, foot and face love sunlight, warm water & air.

I'm a vegetarian. I prefer fruit juice and water to alcohol and I don't smoke tobacco.

PHILOSOPHY

"Don't listen to other people advices. Nobody knows what the hell they are doing. Just do your own thing as way I said".
If you did your best it will come, if it's yours. ;)
Do not panic! Stay calm, Volha.
All that you give away is yours.
"Education is an admirable thing, but it's well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught". Oscar Wilde
