My self-summary
So I finally found some time to update this...

This is my fourth year in Shanghai and I am loving it still but not as much as the first 2 years :-) I'm pretty settled now with a stable job and constant working hours. I work a lot, a lot more than I would like to, but that is alright. Not an English teacher if you want to ask.

I still like to stroll through the streets and explore, whenever I find time to do that. Now that mostly happens on weekends and there is always a different area I pick, the constant so far is mostly good weather and 80% of the time a beer in hand. I also love to ride my bike through Shanghai - it was one of the best decisions ever to get a bicycle here and now I am faster than those annoying Motor-Scooters and healthier - take it over the subway any day, only rain stops me. Also since I live 12 km from work it takes about the same time 35-40 Minutes, awesome, isn't it?

I love to be loud, to laugh loud and to sing loud, to speak loud and I like to listen to stories and tell mine. Music is a big hobby of mine, but also writing and trying to be funny. 50% of the time that works all the time.

This was the place where I wrote about a double date I once had. I forgot about it. Let's make this shorter. I don't have time for silly gold-diggers or people that do not know what they want. To be fair, I am pretty tolerant and open to a lot of options, so feel free to make a choice, I make mine as well and maybe they fit each other and we do.
What I’m doing with my life
I try to be become better every day. I don't know where I am heading and where I will live in the future - right now I enjoy it here. I still have to figure out how my life is supposed to look 10 years in the future (but seriously: who knows that?). I enjoy learning things and have conversations with positive people. I live life to the fullest, but the road is not paved yet and I don't want to follow anyone's footsteps.
I’m really good at
Writing stuff and I heard I have a thing with words. I'm really good with being 'there' in the moment and then I am not easily distracted or just cut the distractions off. I'm good at motivating people and bringing out the best in others!
The first things people usually notice about me
My loud voice and that I smile and laugh a lot - that's alway the first thing.

The six things I could never do without
- books or generally stuff to read, I must read things all the time, I think that is a condition, but I like that one
- music (it helps me a lot and shaped me in many ways)
- role models (people I look up to and people (real or not) to learn from and question myself and people around me and life)
- friends
- physical activities
- food, water, beer and internet access
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we have to sleep and how our energy levels work. I also like to think about alternative timelines and what I like in people I meet and what there qualities are.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually in the Shanghai Brewery for some beers and then see where the evening goes, but usually I find myself in bed before 2am. Lame, eh? But then I wake up pretty early on Saturday and get the most out of the weekend...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not shy, but when things get serious I need some time to realize that, so I am slow in that way...
You should message me if
If you like what you read here and if you are into men with beards :-)

I think of Shanghai as a temporary place and I think it could be interesting to walk this walk together for a bit or for long - so don't be shy!

I like superheroes, Justin Bieber, all things apple, efficiency and hardcore concerts. Weird? You tell me!
