Study, try to make some money and travel!
I'm currently living in Brasília, but I'm from Belém in the Amazon. So that's why my profile may sound a little confusing :p
It's hard to describe myself here, cause I don't even know all about me! But... Let me give it a try!
Since an early age, I always felt very connected with all kind of different stuff, I always hated normality. When I was a kid, I used to get SO amazed by people who didn't follow what was considered normal. In elementary and high school, I was that girl who only wore black clothes, who had piercings, you know typical weirdo hahaha Since an early age I was interested in culture and history, maybe that's why I ended choosing to become an Anthropologist (Yeah, my family still find it hard to understand wtf I study :p)
To be honest, I'm an awful Brazilian, cause I don't know how to dance (not even samba) but I miserably try after some drinks, I dont feel comfortable wearing small bikinis, I have no religion and I don't dream about getting married and having kids. Despite all the critics I have about my country (and our western society in general), I do love Brazil and I think it's one of the most exotic and interesting places to visit in the world! My city Belém is crazy interesting, if you ever have the chance of coming to visit here, please don't miss it! :D
Carpe diem - always. Maybe that's why I can't never refuse a beer! :p
