  • Something to tell the world!

    My name is Ilya, and I'm 19. I'm here to find some interesting acquaintances and people to be friends with. I'm fond of literature, sports and English. You can talk with me about books, films, science and people.

  • Cities and countries I have visited

    I've visited London in 2012, used to be in Turkey, and now I'm looking forward to visiting Europe.

  • Favourite books/authors/films

    I'm fond of reading, and I've read loads of literature. My favourite authors are Jean-Paul Sartre, Oscar Wilde, Jack London, Herbert Wells, George Orwell, Erich Fromm, A. Aleksin. I would like to try to translate some unknown pieces of brilliant Russian literature into English one day. My favourite film is Detachment (2011). The overwhelmingly powerful film that hit me deep as a potential teacher.
    As for music, I really like the US, Canadian and Australian rock bands. My favourites are Linkin Park, Billy Talent, Sum 41, Avril Lavigne, The Beautiful Monument, Skillet, and many many more.

  • I always enjoy talking about...

    I like conversations about psychology, philosophy, science and literature, sometimes about movies.

  • Something uncommon about me

    I'm a poet, and now I'm trying to improve my vocabulary skills to write poems in both Russian and English. I've got bout 10 poems in English by this time.

  • I recently learnt...

    It's really hard for me to communicate with people, as I had a constant lack of sympathy and conversations in past. I'm trying to be more open now, but it's a long and tough process, and I need some help in it
