About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find the school for me. Stop to be only an autodidact.

ABOUT ME

*SOLD OUT* :D :D :D I'm a good listener, because i'm shy at the beginning, when i feel comfortable I explode in a lot of things to do and whish list.

I'm not very able with the words, then please forgive me for my synthetism

I like to dive inside the things is that physical or theoretical. I love art, music, photography. I never be still, even if I think my body wants to move, walk with the head in the clouds is my personal medicine.

PHILOSOPHY

I think that everything is possible if you have the strenght to reach it.

Chaos is my personal god. Sometimes it beats us, sometimes it exalts us. I'm responsible of my act.
