You will find me to be a calm person and way better in deep conversations than smalltalk. I'm into the practical side of things and I cultivate a constructive approach on problems and criticism. I enjoy helping people and won't abandon friends when times get rough.
Besides that, I like to know how stuff works and I love playing around with new consumer electronics to see what they are capable of.
I love being creative in many ways. I do song covers, cooking experiments and after inventing a card game Im currently trying to create a novel to outline a little fantasy universe.
I can be surprisingly rebellious if need be and I have a little history of fighting authorities for acting in an unacceptable way. Once I sang a protest song about my fridge.
I am a staunch defender of human rights, for I believe real progress is only possible once people lay aside things like ethnicity or religion and come to terms about universal values.
Little warning: I am REALLY bad in reading subtexts in verbal communication. If you need to tell me something, just do it. I can take a punch or two, if you deliver them with respect :)
Else: See above.
Singing. Ive come quite far by practicing for myself for about several years now.
Cooking. I love experimenting with food, especially new and exotic ingredients. While I am not so much of a baker, I am quite successful in creating nice and creative lunch meals, dinners and cold desserts.
Playing (some) computer games. Well. I began my geek career when I was 4 or 5 on some old Sinclair PC with a datasette drive. I do love well executed, immersive role playing games but also casual fun stuff such as Mario Kart (everyone knows Mario Kart, right?)
Books: Kishon, Pratchett, Orwell, Watzlawick, The Road (Cormac McCarthy), A Song of Ice and Fire, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Harry Potter,...
Food: Foreign specialities of different sorts, can live without meat and other animal products (and I do, most of the time)
Music: tends to vary, Im not tied to any genre. I like (symphonic) metal, rock music, also Indie pop & rock at times, but also some mainstream stuff as well as classical music.
A pen, for I am a thoughtful writer.
Music, for I am a careful listener.
A ball, for I am a playful creature.
A friend, so there is someone to trust.
Fire, for there is light in the dark, warmth in the night and passion in my soul.
Also, if you're up to a philosophical question: If you had the choice between
- never needing to sleep again until the end of your life and
- never needing to breathe again until the end of your life
which option would you choose and why?
