For those amongst you who read those 'few lines of text' and still feel the urge to get to know me better, you can always drop me a line.
I'm Carolien, I'm a 23 year old bisexual female, living in Leiden, the Netherlands. I'm divorced and currently renting a room in the house of a 74 year old acoholic, which can lead to rather...interesting....situations. As could be expected.
I'm a very many-sided person. Many a person would raise their eyebrows at the strange combination of interests, talents, hobbies, experiences etc.
I guess i'll just name a few things, keep it simple.
I'm a very creative person. I love art, music, words, all things creative. I'm a singer and I play various instruments. If you would like to hear my latest work, check out the Ealeon myspace.
I'm a bit of a nerd. I love to learn, and i'm always stuffing all the information I can get into my head. I'm curious. I want to know how things work. See things from as many points of view as possible. I'm open minded. Mind you, i'm also stubborn as hell.
My best subjects at school were Biology and Art. I also have a thing for languages. My worst subject, Math. *Shudders*
I finished a (home) course in Medical Terminology and I also took a course in Psychology.
I lived in New Zealand for nine years, from my 3rd to my 12th. Hence my current job, I work as a freelance translator.
I want to become a midwife, but so far I haven't been having much luck with the admission process. I currently study Biology in Amsterdam.
Humor. Sarcasm. Satire. Sadistic. English. Think Monty Python.
Books. Love to read. All kinds of things. God, moving is going to be hell (haha), my book collection just keeps getting bigger and bigger. But hey, you can never have too many books...and I need a library...
Music. Couldn't live without it. Honestly. Really really varied taste. So many things I like. But I do have a slight preferance for alternative things. Here once again, strange combinations...In my cd-cupboard, you can find Celine Dion albums stacked next to Machinehead, After Forever next to Destiny's Child, Pendulum next to Vivaldi...Really...it's all over the place. My cd-collection may also form a slight problem when I move..haha.
Baking. Yeah, you read right...I have this slight obsession with baking. Cookies. Muffins. Cakes. I like cooking too, but I prefer baking. Unfortunately, we don't have an oven where i'm living now...So I keep myself busy otherwise...
Drums. Next to singing, I play various instruments. At the moment, i'm taking drum lessons. I also used to sing in a cover-band and currently i'm working on a project with session-musicians and studio work (Ealeon).
I also go to the gym a lot. About 10 hours a week. I particularly enjoy Les Mills classes. In August 2010, I took the initial BodyPump Instructor training, and passed. So I'm now also a BodyPump instructor :)
At the moment, a great deal of my life revolves around therapy. Long story. Not going to bore you with all that here, but it doesn't bother me to talk about it.
Might as well be honest about it, I'm a bit of a nutcase. Don't worry though, i'm harmless :)
I'm a bit of an einzelgänger, I need a lot of space. I can't stand it when people are clingy or 'too nice'. I like to spend time with friends, but I need a lot of 'alone time' too.
Well..What else can I say. Like I said, anyone who's still reading and thinks "Now here's someone i'd like to know more about", feel free to contact me. I don't bite...Hard.
I am Me, Myself, and I
