I am currently attending my third year of high school, which is specialized in languages so I study German and French at school as well as English, but I love to constantly learn about new languages and their most unique features.
I love outdoors; every once in a while we drive to the mountains and spend a day or two there since they're not too far from where we live; it's extremely relaxing as it offers an alternative to the city where I live in. I like to draw especially landscapes of mountains, glens and forests, which I absolutely adore as they help me relax and teleport me to a calm and soothing world far away from caos. I also listen to music a lot. These days I stay at home a lot because schools are closed and it's not recommended to go out in general, which also means I can't practice my sport; aikido, which I took up just last year, but in the past I have tried several sports including rock climbing, fencing, swimming andvolley; although I'm not very good at the last two now. I don't follow football, unlike most people here, but I do follow other sports like American football and a bit of baseball.
