My name's Alex and I'm a (disillusioned)
19 year old male. I'm half-Dutch/half-Lebanese, with English as a first language and Dutch/Arabic both as a second.
Currently, I'm (back)
in school due to complications with my International-Baccalaureate diploma after having done Astronomy for about 5 months at Uni, but then had to stop due to said complications. I'm trying my best now to get myself a dutch diploma so that I can re-enroll at Uni. I've always been interested in all Sciences (apart from Chemistry, just doesn't reach out to me at all)
, but studying Astronomy had always my dream. Now however, I've kinda lost interest in the whole research thing and I'm thinking of doing a BA in English and become a translator, or something along those lines.My (other) interests include:
Reading (of all sorts)
, Biking, Music (ranging from Clasical to Jazz to Industrial to Hard Rock)
, Cooking, Sitting in trains, Flying in planes, Watching sunrises, Staring at the stars and Mythology.You can recognize me anywhere because of:
The Maori necklace that's been around my neck (and under my shirt)
for the past 8 years, the Headphones (which only come off when I go to bed)
, and the fact that I tend to talk in English no matter where I am (to the annoyance of everyone around me)
, because I feel so conscious of my accent in other languages. I eat my Kiwi's unpeeled. I never drink straight from a bottle, I always pour stuff into my mouth without touching my lips with the opening of the bottle.Random things I want to say about myself still:
I sometimes attempt to play my Dijeridu, but I don't practice enough to have that whole circular-breathing technique under control. Whenever I'm out for drinks with friends, I end up talking to girls that seem out of place, just for the sake of an interesting conversation (and nothing more, which usually makes them think I'm gay)
. I've been able to end both my relationships till now mutually, but I still don't talk to either of my ex-girlfriends, just feels uncomfortable. I can dislocate both my shoulders at will (great party trick)
Ok, I know that was alot, but I somehow felt I owed it to you guys after having lurked about these forums for almost a year now, without an account. So, yea...... Hey!
