I'm a dreamer and snarky person, traveller and homebody, wallflower
and opinion-haver, doormat and fighter, and general walking and

What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying history and trying to decrease the stack of unread
books on my shelves - unsuccessfully so far. I also like to cook,
sew and knit, or sit around in coffeehouses talking. The rest of
the time I waste my life on the internet and, since I'm obsessed
with the Danube countries, plan my road trip along the Danube to
the Black Sea. Oh, and sometimes I volunteer at a museum and at
youth camps because I'm masochistic enough to think that
chaperoning 16 year olds is fun.

The six things I could never do without
Coffee! Books. The Internet. My family, clichéd as it is. Yarn,
soft, fluffy yarn! Also I'm really indebted to the person who
