About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be amazed

ABOUT ME

All about me, impossible. But here's some:

I'm a 25 years old bolivian, living in Maastricht at the moment. I finished school in the UK, lived there for a year with a host family and I loved it. That's when I decided I would not only travel to places, but I'll try to live in different places, so then I moved to Argentina. I lived in Buenos Aires for 7 wonderful years, I graduated as an actress and a psychologist while I was there. And because the world works in misterious ways, I'm now living in The Netherlands. I'm a Forensic Psychology master student trying to enjoy as much as possible of this new world.

I love to think about things, to find new perspectives, to discuss and to learn, to open my mind and to feel lost in possibilities, bless the "if"s and the unknowns :)

I consider myself good company, love to chat about random stuff, laugh easily and i'm up to do many things, to know what, you'll have to get to know me, if they involve food, I'll be even more pleased.

I try to be openminded and easygoing... to enjoy everything as it comes, but also to do things towards how I would like them to be, some stuff is just not right in this world.. so I'm trying my best to improve my share.

PHILOSOPHY

Lo peor no es seguro. Feliz incertidumbre. J.Lacan

Hold on tight and let loose lightly. P. Brooke

Life is an adventure of our design intercepted by faith and a series of lucky and unlucky accidents. Patti Smith.

La vida es una obra de teatro que no permite ensayos. Por eso, canta, ríe, baila, llora y vive intensamente cada momento de tu vida... Antes que el telón baje y la obra termine sin aplausos. Charles Chaplin

Enjoy whatever comes into your life and try not to obsess about anything.

Normal is overrated.

Love and be loved.

Be and let be.

Ask, question, open the box and discover.

No risk, no fun.

Happy illusion, sad truth, for some reason, I can't decide :P
