Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I? Well, I'm not gonna tell you everything just yet - we
haven't even met! Sorry, that is one lame joke I had to
What is a man, save for the sum of his memories?
Ever since I remember myself, I've always been travelling - be it
from city to city, or between countries. It has become an
inseparable part of my life and history. I have only just moved to
England and it is the fourth country that I may call my place of
I remember animals, wherever I lived - especially dogs. Real dogs,
mind you - not those mutated rats that some girls like to carry in
There are very few things that can unite people, globally. Two,
actually - food and music. I've been playing instruments for nearly
15 years now, and I found that music will bring people together,
regardless of where they are from.
I remember good coffee everywhere I lived. There's nearly nothing
quite as satisfying as sitting down with a cup of coffee that
you've ground and prepared, yourself, all from scratch.
But most of all, what I remember is one big struggle. A struggle in
which I persevered. Guess you can say that I'm kind of a fighter,
That is my self summary, a quick summary of my memories. What else
needs to be said about a man, save for his memories? Well, I filled
out those parts, anyway. I do not know why... and quite frankly,
does it even matter?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Now there's a good question, isn't there? Well, if I were to
deflect this question altogether I would say that I'm living it,
but I'm not one for deflections. So let's get right into it: I
finished my Master's Degree last November and am on the job hunt. I
am a weightlifter who aspires to become a bodybuilder some
Oh, I've been playing the saxophone for years now (with some breaks
in between naturally), and I bloody love that brass baby.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not too shabby a writer (or so I've been told). I have an easy
time looking at things from multiple perspectives, as well, and
I've found that I'm rather good at reading people. I enjoy a good
debate and playing devil's advocate. I'm an expert in using fancy
words to describe the mundane.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My generally nonchalant and relatively laid-back initial attitude.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: I find that my taste in books diversifies over the years - I
started out as a fan of pure fiction, such as the Wheel of Time
series (still can't believe I managed to finish all 14 books) and
the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Sapiens: A Brief History of
Humankind is absolutely amazing, so is Henry Kissinger's latest
work (World Order). James Clavell's Shogun is one of the few books
that actually left a lasting impression on me.
Movies: As far as movies go, I like just about anything that makes
you work some grey matter. Also, pretty much anything Monty Python.
Peaceful Warrior and Limitless are also pretty good movies in that
they're rather inspirational.
Music: where do I start? I'm a big fan of jazz and hard rock. No,
seriously, I can listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone followed
by some Foo Fighters. Also got a bit of a weak spot for indie pop
bands like The Neighbourhood.
Food: I find that I eat a lot of chicken. It's a lean, high-protein
meat. I'm the least picky eater you will ever find - although I do
still miss cooking from back home and I do have a weak spot for
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This list is made in no particular order of importance.
1. Coffee - YES. GIVE IT TO ME. GIVE ME COFFEE. I swear I'm not an
addict - I can quit whenever I want to!
2. Technology - the only way I have to keep in touch with my family
from abroad. Long live Skype!
3. Family - call me old-fashioned, but I absolutely love my family
and try to stay in touch with them on a daily basis.
4. Cooking - I absolutely love cooking. It's an inseparable part of
5. Books - seriously, a good book is worth tenfold what you paid
(unless it's a ridiculously expensive book) if it managed to teach
you something/touch you in some way.
6. Music - I seriously cannot believe how much I enjoy playing the
saxophone and how music can connect me with so many amazing
Oh, while I can definitely do without it, I'd hate giving up booze,
especially good scotch.
