About Me

IN ENGLISH:
The volcano of energy, inspiring others, always seeing positives, with a huge curiosity of the world and people. Searcher and finder. My inner Child is main part of my personality.

It is not possible to be bored in my company! :D

Always having a markers with me, cause there is always something to draw or write down (I use visual thinking in everyday life: in trainings, in learning, in working, IN EVERYTHING).

PHILOSOPHY

---always be a CHILD that is inside of you!---
---make LOVE, not HATE---

I am also very far away from any politics, religion, ideology, etc. but for sure:
- I support LGBT + equity + Woman's movements,
- I believe in NO RELIGION movement,
- I specialise in not recognising politicians, parties and ideologies, cause I just don't give a damn :]

Music, Movies, and Books

WHAT DO I ADORE for example:
- stand-up (like: George Carlin, Louis C.K., Pablo Francisco, Ricky Gervais, Eddie Izzard)
- improvisation theatre (like "Whose line is it anyway")
- Bill Bryson's books

MUSIC:
The older I get, the harder it is to choose just a narrow group of music.
For sure I am NOT a big fan of:
- wide group of electric music
- hip hop (especially polish, but I adore Łona!)
- music where there is no / or small amount of instruments
