welcome. this is a representative place. a planned city, meant to be comfortable in use, appealing to the eyes and inviting for visitors. along the provided routes you'll find the most beautiful façades, which reveal by their transparency just as much as desired. lighting will play its part as well. the backyards and attics stay in the dark, but will eventually be discovered by alert visitors.
new urbanizations are growing near the city limits, maybe there will be real life one day. traffic ways are being routed, connections are being made. there is a constant flow of vehicles, crossing the bridges, day and night. you will always find an open snack bar.
this is a city like every other.

i have lived in three different cities so far: frankfurt, berlin and porto. although i also feel at home on the countryside - the place where i live should be equipped with a metro system at least. i enjoy the feeling of being part of the city's organism; you're never alone, yet always free. no matter whenever you're sleeping or whenever you're awake, there's always the pulse of other peoples's lives.

who wants to find bliss in a garden should have taken care of gardening first. flora is to be planted, fruits are to be seeded, trees to give shadow are to be grown. it is recommended to avoid monocultures.

when asked for my profession, i sometimes wonder what to answer. and for a reason: my studies were theoretical, sometimes i work at home and sometimes in an office, sometimes for this company and sometimes for the other, all varied in working hours and payment. sometimes i'm writing, sometimes i'm at a digital construction site, sometimes i just stand and talk to people. ironically, my most regular working hours have been my leisure hours for quite a while, when i have spent time committing to a non-profit project.
no surprise there's no name for this.
writing is the common thread. for writing has always been my favourite means of expression, i'm constantly looking for new channels to let this skill flow into.
my way to earn money with that is explained on wort-code-kommunikation.de (in german).
my way to gain experience with that is the volunteer work as a contributor and long-time editor for bln.fm. our radio and web magazine is, in fact, a medium-sized company. just without the company.
it happened about a dozen times so far that i've missed a flight;
in several cases, it got expensive in the end, in some cases it was caused by the airline;
in most cases, i was even happier having missed it.
