Personal

Contrary to the popular belief, my name is not Jeff. And (surprise, surprise) I am not a lion. My name is Mira, a 30 year old (young) woman & (old) student. I was born on June 1st 1981. Nothing special about that day, except that it was a day before my mother’s birthday. I live in Belgrade, Serbia. Belgrade (Beograd, actually) is a beautiful European city, but I would love to live near the sea. I’m married.2003

I am shy and introvert around people and a bit antisocial. That’s not something I’m proud of. Often, I prefer company of animals to human company (except few people that I really love). To be surrounded by many people is not my idea of fun. It’s much easier for me to express my opinion when writing. I wrote my first novel when I was 12. My English sucks so I can’t show you my writing here. I do not consider myself an artist, I’m just somebody who enjoys planning and writing novels with interesting plots. It’s more of a mind-game for me than an artistic experience.

Arche

I’m a student of archaeology. Archaeology is wonderful and exciting, but it has nothing to do with Indiana Jones, except one thing: we do wear hats when working on a field. Archaeology is not all about pyramids and it’s not a treasure hunt- it’s simply discovering a past through material remains. Archaeology doesn’t have to deal with the ancient times, it can cover any time period since people always leave material remains which archaeologists can find and interpret. An archaeologist must know how to “read” a material remain (an artifact, a castle or even a grave) and base on that explain how people lived in the past. It’s not as easy as it sounds.

Things you want to know about me

I walk barefoot wherever I can, and I can pick up things with my toes. I’m short. I wear glasses. I use bad words a lot. I love astronomy. I own hamsters. I often say shocking things so people could leave me alone. I do not support any political system, including anarchy (the lack of a system is a system as well). I believe religion is a good thing, as long as it’s not corrupted by people. I often consider myself a worse person than I actually am. I look younger. I don’t visit hairdressers. I love stupid & absurd jokes.

And…

+ : oceans, green olives, Hermann Hesse, JRR Tolkien, animals, long hair, Johann Sebastian Bach, “Contact” (film), Gary Oldman, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, long skirts, “South Park”, iron age. Popcorn & chocolate obsessed.

– : money, fashion & cosmetics, hairdressers, politics, reality tv.

    @Mira… Your comments on LoftyExistence piqued my curiosity. You consistently present well-informed assertions that are nuanced, honest, well-supported (for a blog response), and unpretentious. Soooooo, I clicked your avatar and saw you had a Web site. That’s not e-stalking is it?! lol! Well, your site is nice. Maybe consider inviting the company of others a little more? …I believe many would like you. Best wishes for you and your writing, and congrats on the marriage!

    I am so sorry for my late reply. I was so busy and didn’t have any time for the site (or approving comments), so this is why it took me so much to reply. Thank you for your kind words and sure I’d love to connect to others, but how?

    I just stumbled upon a post of yours at Abagond.com about ancient Egypt, followed the link here and was amazed to see you are in Belgrade. Actually, come to think of it, not surprised that a ‘white’ poster not thinking like ‘white’ people would be from Belgrade. I am writing about the century in America it took for us to discover we were really Krajina Serbs (grandma got caught up in the first wave of cultural genocide). Would love to share it with you. The link above to my site will take you there.
