My self-summary
I am here to steal strangers' favourite books and fake life histories. I tend to give unsolicited advices to people from distant lands just to practice English. If I were you I wouldn't believe the word I say, I am a barefaced liar.

My nick means "reluctant bull" in Polish and was taken from Cortazar
What I’m doing with my life
Apparently I'm philosopher and lawyer but frankly speaking most of the time I'm only an animal who got lost in the city.

I learn German and statistics to fight crime (I guess it makes me Batman). I learn physics because.

"If one wants to be a respectable philosopher one should
get up in the mornings and do some work, though just at that moment when one should do it the thought of being a respectable philosopher leaves one cold."
I’m really good at
Still, I was a really bad poet.
I didn't know how to take it all the way.

glasses
