A Lithuanian Humanities student, currently studying in Leiden University, Netherlands.
Location: NetherlandsStandard Set Answer:
I am a Lithuanian fella, currently living in Netherlands. Studying in a humanities course made me feel that I am in need of something related to computer sciences and fun to do at the same time. For years I have seen how my fellow cousing used coding, while I was playing piano and singing to girls. At one point, he started earning money, while I was still living of my parents money. I felt it was unecessary, until I realized that it is time to become independent and start thinking for myself in every step I make. Thus, taking up a book named 'Simulacra et Simulation' by Jean Baudrillard, opened my eyes about virtualization and its overgrowth. Since then I am obsessed with Tesla Motors, Lithuanian digital startups and their models of development.
I always wanted to establish my own business consultancy company. I have been acquiring knowledge about business principles, models and its shifting tendencies to politics and numerous specializations (f.e. specialized economics major of area studies). However, I am still at the stage where I am merely collecting vast amount of information, but can hardly reflect on it. For example, At the moment I am studying about South Korean History and its foreign policy development with Japan, China and North Korea. There are numerous perspectives how can you approach it, and for every each one of them I have thousands of quotes in my head, but I still cannot think for myself properly since the words do not derive from myself, I am just merely reflecting the information I have memorized, but it is far from perfect in order to master it(We see some Ludwig Wittgenstein 'Private Talk' phenomenon'). Mastery is what I seek in every possible situation and I believe that P2PU could help me achieve my goal. I do get lazy, I am not the most consistent person, but I have the feeling inside my heart what I would call 'Inner fire' which allows me to look at myself and think how much I would improve just by reading and analyzing the required texts, or watching education videos. This is a mere part of my life. I hope it stays like this with P2PU.
I am obviously interested in providing guidance in the fields that I am currently trying to specialize, while training for coding and learning more about digital business. However, It will not be a 24/7 service, nor it will be a supremely consistent, but I will answer every call in need and I will provide my knowledge if requested.
