I currently live in Sri Lanka where I work as a teacher for English and Maths at a small village school in the jungle. Will be back in Europe in August
What I’m doing with my life
Probably my parents worst nightmare: studying philosophy which equates to "nothing of substance" in the "what you are doing with your life" category. I disagree. Good for their mental well-being that I am also an aspiring economist and will most certainly save the world with my newly acquired interdisciplinary super skills... won't I?
Update: I have now finished my BA. Still figuring out how to save the world though.
I’m really good at
giving people the false impression that I have any talents at all. I also have a huge arsenal of random knowledge no one else would ever find useful (it's not my fault, this stuff just gets stuck in my mind). I am also your go-to guy if you are looking for the next great TV show to binge-watch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Philip Roth, Jack Kerouac, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Dickens and so many more that I just can't remember right now
Movies: Magnolia, American Beauty, Goodfellas
TV Shows: The West Wing, The Wire, Community, Suits, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Homeland, Borgen, Sherlock, many many more
Music: Bell X1, Oasis, Jack's Mannequin, The White Stripes, The Shins, Bob Dylan, Ben Folds Five
Food: anything spicy
The six things I could never do without
great literature, an internet access, a chance to watch live football matches, hilarious people who do not take themselves too seriously, spicy food (not necessarily in that order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why I even want to graduate. Being a student is just too great. People just don't realize that afterwards you will actually have to work :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
hopefully getting drunk with a select number of very good friends.
You should message me if
you're interesting and fun to be around? I bet you are, so you might just as well give it a try. :-)
