What else do i like to do ?

yoga

Every single time i sit on my mat, it feels like im updating myself to my newer version available. It's such a big part of mylife right now, i literally can't remember when i started. Namaste!


philosophy

"All people seek meaning of life due to their nature" (Aristotle)

As a group of people, we come together weekly to bring out the questions in our pocket, discuss them together, and ask new meanings, new questions with moderations by P4C professionals.


youtube

As an active member of Queer Cyprus Association, i'm more than happy and proud to be one of the faces of its YouTube channel. We started releasing videos regarding various topics that we believe worth discussing!

First season is now over! New ideas are already cooking for the upcoming season! Channel can be accessed by clicking here.


musicophile

I'm a true musicophile and pop culture lover. In more common words; music lover. A LOT. You can check my Spotify profile to see my favs and playlists!


civo

she had to be here just like she is in my life for the past 13 years! Simply i can't think of a world without her. All I can say is owning a pet makes you a better person; mentally, physically and emotionally.
Here is a pic of us. My social media is pretty much about her so this '3 black dotted' face can pop-up from anywhere :)
