About Me


To change my location to Japan. CS has changed a lot and I'm confused now.


to be honest i like coffee, with milk and sugar (in any order)

I like alive animals pretty much!

here's the update: i dont drink coffee with sugar

Time to be serious.
What I do, is trying to understand the world and its people, trying not be judging, especially I try hard to give everybody a chance to speak up and listen to them, since I can learn something from everybody or arguing with people helps to make me understand why we have different views.
I really like varity. Change is like a holiday - they say in English. In Hungarian -as I find- there is a much better saying, giving us an idea how diversity can be really beautiful and can be enjoyed.
I like to be laid-back, and I find it important to step out from my comfort zone, but I don't think it should be forced, so despite me being flexible I don't expect it from strangers, neither hosts nor guests. As I find it very uncomfortable too, when somebody more laid-back forces me to be so.
That's it for now.

For several reasons I prefer bewelcome. Please contact me there. http://www.bewelcome.org/members/monosoph
Thank you :)

Music, Movies, and Books

As for music, I have a few genres, I don't like. I try to stay open and give a chance to music, I usually don't like though. It's the same as everybody else, it depends on my mood. I enjoy jazz, some classical, I really like different kind of rock music. I can listen to reggae and I like some blues, like Seasick Steve. I enjoy balkan and some gipsy music.

I don't watch many movies. When I watch, I prefer to watch either something "feel good" and easy or something that can teach something or documentary. Recently I've seen the Lost boys of Sudan, it wasn't outstanding, but I have to write something here.

I like to read, but I don't make enough time for it. I try to give a chance for each genre. And I really hope to read more, especially from each country. I find this TED talk "The danger of a single story' really convincing: https://www.ted.com/talks/chimamanda_adichie_the_danger_of_a_single_story

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

didn't know this is a "basic section" to pm some of you! AMAZING!
I don't like the American way of overusing amazing and awesome.
Yeah, it was a really nice breakfast, but c'mon, it cannot be amazing, it's just a breakfast.

Teach, Learn, Share

at the moment rather learning the sentence "it's possible"

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm happy to cook for you, but I have to tell in advance I'm not a star chef, neither a reeeally good chef.
I'm happy to listen and happy to discuss. I like to talk about sociology, different cultures.
But generally, I'm happy to help with anything if you need a hand.
