Someone once called me a "Liebhaberstück" ( roughly translatable as collector's item or objet d'art), and that somehow hits the mark.
I'm conditionally extroverted, i.e. I may be a little shy in the beginning, but I tend to excesses and to being the life of a party once I'm in the mood.
The tests here are not that bad, soI've saved the results of those that didn't fail completely to describe me.
Graduated with a master in Russian studies and history, now trying to turn my hustle (i.e. translator and tutor) into a real business.
Then I play guitar and piano and sing , and some even say it didn't sound that bad. I'm not really a big sports-person, but I do sports for the results i.e. to feel better. I am a convinced pedestrian, though.
-Useless knowledge of all kind ( see my subjects of study).
- Not bearing a grudge. I forgive and forget, as long as someone is honestly sorry.
-Accepting people the way they are. There aren't any other anyway.
-My bald head ( better to look like Bruce Willis than like Danny DeVito, right ? )
-My style of clothes ( some would call me a classy skinhead, some a preppy....whatever. I dress down at times, though)
-My serious appetite
- Music: Rock ( both Classic and Post-Rock) ,20's, 60's, 70's, 80's, Classical ( Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert ( most of all) , Schumann, Grieg...rather piano), Metal ( Black and "Post-Black" like Alcest and Amesoeurs) any many other things. I have quite a broad taste in music I like, however, what's on the radio is mostly not my cup of tea.
-Food: well, let's say anything, although I prefer hearty things. I'm a very adventurous eater that tries anything at least once but who also appreciates good old German cuisine. I love eating, cooking and anything that deals with food.
I don't mind something vegetarian once in a while, but I guess fanatics on this behalf won't have fun with me.
-Movies: Die Feuerzangenbowle, Texas-Doc Schneider hält die Welt in Atem, Ödipussi, Annie Hall ( Woody Allen is hillarious..), Falling Down, Stalker, Tod eines Schülers, Die Verrohung des Franz Blum...mostly serious stuff, although I like absurd movies and some comedy aswell, and NO contemporary German movies.
-Shows: None. I consider TV a nuisance which will hopefully die out soon.
-My personal space. Even it is a broom closet, I need a space that is MINE.
-Hope; although I can be quite a cynic sometimes, it simply keeps me alive
-John Barleycorn and his relatives.
-And a very bad driver.
-Oh, and I've served in the military. Not for too long, in fact I was just drafted, but just so you know.
