About Me

ABOUT ME

I consider myself a friendly, open-minded guy. I'm curious about how everyday life is in other places, I'm more like a "let's get lost in the city and we'll find a place eventually to drink our coffee's at and look out the window" guy than the one following an umbrella held high by the tour guide all day long. That's the main reason I'm here: I'd rather explore parts of the cities where locals go, see how they spend their time, etc. And of course getting to know new people.

PHILOSOPHY

If there was a philosophy for my thinking, it would probably be called something like pacifistic hedonism. I don't believe in higher goals and any kind of afterlife, I believe you should live your life for your own enjoyment with the condition of not hurting anyone else in the progress. I know it's oversimplified, but I'm kind of running out of spaces to write at. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite movies include American Beauty (it's the very best one ever made, watched it enough times to know the whole script by heart), Donnie Darko, The Lives of Others, The Boat that Rocked, etc.

When it comes to music, 60's beat wins by a mile. I'm also into bluesy and jazzy things, some rock sub-genres, and nowadays' indie. Favorite artists would be a little long to list, but it starts with The Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel, and follows with Bowie, Led Zepp, Robert Cray, Zappa, Dire Straits, and a lot of others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Won junior national champion title in Ju-Jitsu. Learned to play an instrument with a below-average musical hearing, all by myself. Went for a cross-country hitchhiking.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I'd say self defense is something I know a good deal about, but it's also a thing that cannot be taught in a couple of days. Okay, maybe the very basics. I can also teach you how to play the guitar, Hungarian language - if by some miracle you'd be interested in it. Also, my friends tend to think I'm good at explaining things.
