Welcome to MSchnitzler2000! Thank you for your interest in my personal website!My name is Markus Schnitzler. I'm 42 years old and I live in Düren, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. In 2005, I graduated from university with the degree Magister Artium (MA) in German philology. Now I work as in several jobs as a texter in an internet company, in the online office of the local newspaper and as a tutor. I combined my interests in writing and the internet to create this website.
Content of my website
This is my self portrait. I give you some insights into my personal life and I tell you something about my career and jobs. I present my home town Düren-Niederau. In my blog "Kein Blatt" I write down my thoughts and ideas. Furthermore I ask you to support social projects like blood donation.
Volleyball is my passion in sports. I support the German Bundesliga teams SWD Powervolleys Düren (men) and Ladies in Black Aachen (women). I try to get more attention to the most beautiful sport. I also like the sports in the sand: beach volleyball.
The young Swiss singer Stefanie Heinzmann combines excellent music and a very amiable personality. She's one of my favorites in music business and I follow her since she won a casting show. Some time ago I saw a concert of the East German band Jenix, who got me at once. The band Silbermond is also one of my top favourites.
I read a lot and I own three shelfs full of books. Novels are in my library as well as nonfiction books. My collection of films is also quite large. I prefer thrillers, historical stuff and comedies. On the page "Wissenswertes" (worth knowing) I present information on other important topics like climate change and digitalisation. If you are interested in some intelligent statements, take a look at my collection of quotes.
The internet keeps us up-to-date on all events worldwide. I show you some regional and global news feeds. Furthermore, I have some information about the media who produce the news. I like to listen to podcasts. As you know from my biography, I have studied linguistics. Language is a very interesting topics and I give you a short introduction for German, English, Latin and my dialect Kölsch. Stefan Raab is the greatest German entertainer. Unfortunately, we can't see him on TV anymore.
Social Media and Web 2.0
Follow me also on these websites: Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Wikipedia (all links are external). You always see these links to my profiles in the upper right edge of the header.
Besides my website I write two blogs in German language. In my blog „Kein Blatt“ (an ambiguous title) I write about everything which appears to me in my everyday life. „Erlebnis Sprache“ (Experience language) is about phenomena concerning language.Thank you for your interest!Markus Schnitzler
