If you'd like to get to know me better, here's a list of random things about me:

1. I decided at 24 that I was going to be an opera singer when I grew up.
2. I recently moved from the tech-savvy little Estonia at the Baltic See to Leverkusen, Germany in the heart of Europe. Und ja, ich spreche auch Deutsch :)
3. I’m multi-passionate and proud of it! I don't care if it makes me look like I have ADD.
4. I'm a pathological dreamer. I believe in the saying that if your dreams don't scare you, they're simply not big enough.
5. I eat way too many sweets. I get cranky if I've been away from chocolate for too long.
6. The only thing I love more than sleep is singing, and making stuff of course.
7. I'm a real softy - I cry during every movie and TV-show. Sometimes even commercials. It's pathetic.
8. I have a Master's degree in psychology. I like to watch people. Not in a creepy way.
9. I love to cuddle. A lot. A lot lot.
10. I can do anything I want, if I really want to. I can be real stubborn like that.

If you'd like to know more about me, you can read about why I blog, how I coped with a life-altering decision, hear me sing, and watch our wedding video.

Have a cup of coffee, sit down and stay a while! I like you already!
