I sometimes feel overwhelmed by how short our life is compared to all the things one can do.
Metal is my favourite music genre since my teens, and I still go to clubs like Final Destination with my friends when we find the time. Alternatively, we enjoy watching something new in the english theater or trying to wrap our heads around the rules of a new board game.
I like meditation. When stressed, it helps me put things into perspective, and when calm, its just some enjoyable leisure time. Meditating in small groups is one of the most potent experiences I had, and I like to share this kind of experience with others, if they are so inclined.
I also like visiting new places. Last summer, I went trekking to Thuringia with my best friend. He's a biologist, and it was an amazing tour. We saw some really rare plants, and a deer crossed our path only two meters ahead of us. It was a beautiful moment.
Work is an important part of my life: I'm in a small business consultancy that was founded just 6 years ago, and being able to contribute to its growth is intensely satisfying. We try to keep work and life balanced, though, so I usually have enough free time on my hands.
I'm politically interested and love discussions on politics, philosophy and economics. The pace of current developments is stunning, we're living in very interesting times indeed. Currently, I'm not actively participating in politics, but I ponder becoming more active in the SPD after finishing a time-intensive learning program I'm taking part in for the next two years.
Allegedly, I'm also sometimes funny.
I'm not a big movie-goer, I prefer shows. The last movie I watched in cinema was The Hobbit, Part Two.
Shows are really time-intensive, especially as I share the bad habit of binge-watching with most of the internet. There aren't any shows I currently watch, as both Doctor Who and Game of Thrones are between seasons.
My taste in music hasn't changed a lot since I was a teen - I mainly listen to metal, with some pop, rock and other genres sprinkled in if the particular song happens to be something I enjoy.
Vegetarian food can be really good. My absolute favorite are Swabian noodles.
- My family. I have six elder siblings and loads of uncles and aunts. We're pretty close to each other, and I like being part of their lives.
- Skype. A lot of the people I'm close to live far away, and I want to stay connected.
- Work. Apparently, there are many people who don't like there jobs, so I'm very happy to have found something that appeals to me.
Also, since it's kind of awkward bringing it up on a third or fourth date... I like being tied up and other stuff in the same vein. For more information on that topic, see my profile on FL (Aharon_S over there).
You like meditation and don't practice as much as you would like to.
You find my views on the political and philosophical questions interesting and want to discuss them.
You feel some or even all of the above are true for you, and are interested in getting to know all facets I can offer.
