I am a transplant from Europe, although I never thought I'd leave my home country let alone my home continent. I guess you just never know what kind of turn life will take. I landed in Fargo for graduate school, spent quite a few years there, and met some of the most wonderful people in my life. My friends come from just about every corner of the world, and being so far away from family some of them have become like a family to me. I try to take the best from both worlds – the one I live in and the one I was born in, and let that fine blend guide my life and make it more interesting.
I've always had some incredibly supportive people in my life, and that probably qualifies me for being very lucky . I am empathetic and supportive, and the well-being of people close to me is always on the top of my list. I enjoy being around people, especially those who can get engaged in stimulating conversation, who laugh when they find something to be really funny, who are nice and kind to people because they really mean it, and who can listen to what you have to say without judging you. Now you know that if you ever met my friends you’d be having a great time!
I can laugh at myself, and I enjoy a company of people with good sense of humor as it is usually a sign of some positive brain-waves, which can make a conversation so much more interesting. My accent sounds kind of funny (at least to me), but for some reason most people like it. I am always up for a good theater play, live music, art galleries or local art fairs. Traveling, hitting the ski slopes, biking, tennis, occasional hiking.....always open to new ideas as long as the company is good.
I love my job (I suppose it's not a terrible thing to say), which means I don't come home disappointed and grumpy, just tired sometimes. I’ve been very fortunate to do what I like, and to work with kind and intelligent people. I maintain a 'healthy relationship' with my work so I am not obsessed with it. It feeds my curiosity, allows me to learn something new all the time, and keeps me grounded by showing me how much I still don’t know.
