We were talking about this thread in chat, and I have also seen this post around, I think it is time I introduced myself a bit as well.:)
My name is Balázs. So far no one who is or was not aquainted with the hungarian language could pronounce it properly.:D I don't mind that at all, I've heard everything from Ball through "hey, you over there" to non-tolerated-on-forum phrases already.:) However, I thought it'd be more simple of creating a name anyone can remember and say out without difficulties.:) Nicram stuck to me after a little game with our surnames with mates. Surprisingly simple as it came, I am now referred to by this name in various places.
I am currently 21 years old, and live in Hungary. Not always was this so: between the age of 3 and 8 I lived in the States. English was the first language I picked up, and up to date I speak it more fluently than my mother-tongue of hungarian. Besides these two main languages, I'm studying german and french, and getting good progress. Later on I might want to extend my language-arsenal.
At the moment, I am a 3rd-year student, getting my bachelor's degree in Business Administration, and for the next two years to come, I would like to achieve a master's level in this field. As enthusiastic as I may sound, I chose this university life and future after a shattered dream to become an air force pilot. My eyesight wasn't optimal, although it was and still is only slightly worse than perfect. I prepared all my life for the career on a jet: military and civilian aircraft in any form are still one of my greatest hobbies(mainly those after the second world war), and having between 8-16 flights a year also reinforces this dream. Although a dream, one day I might grow up to own a smaller plane, I'd be happy with that too by now.
What else...I love Scotland. Partially of course because we get to _fly_ there(;)) and see the RAF practising above our heads, but mainly because I got to know some great people there, and there's always something to do-even though many Scots say it's a boring country. NEVER!:D
...And most importantly, because of my family. My little sister lives with my dad in England, and it is always a great reunion of the clan when the two brothers and sister meet up for a wonderful time. My brother and sister are the two most important people in my life, I would fight for them in any case to the death and beyond.
Finally, sports(goota look cool rofl:D)...I used to swim earlier, a regular competitor in competitions. Freestyle was my strength, I sacrificed my breaststroke for it though...:) Nowadays I changed sports, and besides going to a gym, I prefer a sport considered more aggressive but many, although I'd say it strengthens one's spirit and willpower a lot more than the body itself...although the latter is pushed to the limits, too.:) I enjoy the thrills of kickboxing, and try to get mates to join the sport.:) It's like me, kind of not like doing things alone.
I also like to hang out with friends, who come in a wide variety. Since I don't have a particular taste in music, it's not surprising how my closest friends all belong to different music groups: one's a rocker listening to Dragon Force, the other's a rapper booming 50 cent lyrics, while the third loves hanging out in a techno party. I'm okay anywhere, I listen to anything.:) When there's no music on, no friends around, and no training to be done, I chill out at home, probably reading a book or newspaper, whatch TV...or write posts on a specific forum, or chat with the players of a game I'm very fond of.;) It's a pleasure being here, coming here on the days I do, and just knowing you people are around keeps me around.;)
I'm sure I missed about 95% I could have written about...But for now, this'll have to do.;)
