Had a really fine personal description for a long time. Then one day deleted it and filled the 'void' with Depeche Mode's 'Never Let Me Down Again' lyrics - maybe not the best way to introduce myself to the general public... or maybe these mind-changes signify something else?
Can describe myself as an 'armchair' musician and artist who has some engineering plus some social sciences background and is earning money by using the 'background' knowledge to an extent - existentialist stuff...
Like nature and water very much - being close to water... just enjoy swimming (guess means haven't experienced the harsh side of nature). Like Cycling and skiing too - being on the move feels rather good.
Enjoy being in the process 'Let's make/take, let's feel wanted' but not one of those with much (any) passion for the most technology/gadget latest updates neither much into variety of popular activities. ... all that makes me sometimes have few more beers than was in my good intentions.
For more than five years i am vegetarian - also means that i am aware about some issues i like to be aware of while / and ignoring many other issues/aspects.
One thing leads to another... Every experience can teach something. Sometimes I oversleep some of these valuable 'classes'. Sometimes I sleep the whole term. What does 'personal philosophy' mean?
Always make sure that you allow yourself to have some time to leave the place in a decent (and peaceful) condition!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Really enjoyed Melvins gig in London, December 2009; Trip to Banff (Rocky Mountains) was beyond my expectations and involved some CS action; Visited Seattle (which is place i got to know form my interest in music and as a teenager i also wondered if i will ever travel anywhere outside Latvia) and area where they shot Twin Peaks (TV series) happened to be located very close to Seattle; Every now and then playing guitar can be quite amazing for me
Enjoy cycling to the seaside and going for a swim, one of the better ways to use the day
Teach, Learn, Share
Will be happy to share my 'wisdom' about the places I have visited. Can cook too. Sometimes. I have observed what I cook is more tolerable when hungry. I rather not teach anything, as I am not certain the 'knowledge' I posses will do any good or should be passed any further, but if somebody is that interested - I have warned you here!
I can share these:
