et voila..born and raised in Europe (Germany). Typical leo (they say). Weak in front of tiramisu and cheesecake, and many other things.
late bloomer- according to my parents, I am always years behind everything and others. Explanation: I've been liking to make irrational decisions (a lot), which actually brought me to the city (so I must have done something right along the way I guess).
I know what I want in life, albeit, I am continiously trying figure out my role in this world more precisely. NYC is the right place to do that - I feel you're with me on that one.
I am this I am that I love I hate I desire I I I I..end of the story. At the end of the day we're strong, we're insecure, we rise, we fall..we all cook with water (in my case sparkling water of course..am European..duuuhh).
spending $ on traveling
flying over the cuckoo's nest, but big-time
not living what I preach :-)
getting new Jordans despite being broke
being wild at heart like Sailor
browsing (biking) around the city with no real plan
making irrational decisions
driving all night long (guess what type of car!!!)
watching shows endlessly
i eat passionalely, but way too much
Misfits, Game of thrones, the wire, How2makeItinAmerica, Californication, breaking bad, the walking dead, Bored to Death, House of Cards, etc..
latest one I did really like: moonrise kingdom
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, that to begin with!!!! Well, I do usually fall back on pasta, unless there's a shake shack around. Good tacos, sushi, fresh street mango - it all works.
(the other 1000 things: soccer, Trader Joes, my couch, afternoon naps, serato nights, cinnamon toast, yankee hat, wasting time in libraries, chocolate (by kinder), soccer, poppyseed cake, russell peters, louisCK, PS22 chorus, Hip-Hop, Malbec, a good gauloise legere, coffee/espresso, san pellegrino orange (only a can pls), cilantro, Europe, Andalucia, making out, seasons, spicy tuna roll, the new yorker, the economist, Jordans, mango, coke zero, books, my brownstone, romance)
what I read
emotion/idealism vs ratio
my job and the the illusion of the American dream
shall I buy an Iphone....? the 5 will be mine.
the guy in Straight Story
how circus life is
tolerant with regards to limits
everywhere and nowhere
in random bars trying to understand the Americans
in the mix with ma boy serato
at Juniors for cheesecake or BBowl for their bread pudding and nutella-burbon milkshake
on my couch malbeccing
at the M&M store
I still dream about being a soccer star for my German team
I feel like a hero when I drive fast
you know jay-z lines as much as stevie nicks
you manage to jump out of my dreams and into my car
you're cool, but not cold as ice
you keep failing in rationalizing things
you can do nutella toast only WITH butter
you own more sneakers than high heels

you can agree on the following:
you don't take it that seriously here, meaning like you don't use this site to basically apply marketing 101 to yourself and feel better cuz of how great you are.
Things can always be tempting, but in order to really commit you need to feel that "little something magic".
At the end of the day, you admire loyalty and endurance, cuz you don't like giving up on things when it gets complicated. In fact, you'd say that it actually starts to be getting interesting right there.
You've already experienced that sometimes it lasts in love and sometimes it hurts instead.
