Interview: Who are you?

530 posts in this topic

1. What is your real name?

Mikko (Michael).

2. Where are you from?

Finland, northern Europe.

3. How did you find out about IB Survival?

Google is my friend. ;)

4. What made you register on IB Survival?

I feel nostalgic, I guess...

5. When did you (approximately) register here?

Approximately 10 minutes ago. :P

6. What is your favourite IB subject?

I loved History! You can't understand the present, not to mention the future, unless you know how we ended up at this point in time.

7. When are you graduating?

I graduated in May 2005 - over 10 years ago! It's funny to think about because it feels like it happened yesterday... Or maybe I still live in the past. ;)

8. What are your plans for university?

I got my MA in Translation & Interpreting (in Italy). Before that I did BA in Italian Philology at Helsinki University, Finland. After university (which is mostly a waste of time anyways) I have been studying Crafts & Arts (primitive handicraft skills) and become a wilderness guide. I think moving in the middle of nowhere was the best decision in my life - believe me, this silly thing they call "civilization" will not bring you happiness.

9. What are your free-time hobbies?

I still love reading and I also practise traditional archery. Every once in a while I engage in a chess match.

10. If you could change one thing on IB Survival, what would it be? 

I haven't got the faintest idea... Can't say, really.
