About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Woah, haven't used CS for ages. I am looking to do an exchange to Brown University in Fall 2015 and planning to roam the US a bit, when schedule and wallet allows it.

ABOUT ME

I love the sweet core of carrots (I am eating a carrot right now, and therefore just re-realized how much I love it, and how essential little things can be), i love interesting faces, i like getting lost (it's luxury), i like slow books and fast men; strange things, beautiful things, ugly things. I like anything I don't understand, I like freezing winters and boiling hot summers, I like words that no one uses and clever wordplay, I like to always be moving, i love to order the strangest thing on the menu, i like the greys,the inbetweens and undefinable. Anything between the lines. I can't help my own chaos, I am open-minded, I am boring, I am obnoxious, I am caring, I am tiny, I am gonna take your picture, I am protective, I am sarcastic, I am ... already thinking of something else again..

PHILOSOPHY

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.“

(Arundhati Roy)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been some kind of CouchSurfing minimalist. The part I enjoy most is the showing of places. Hoping I can give my surfers a taste of how living feels around here. I want to take your portrait!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had a few interesting people staying over .. I love everything different. This is a wonderful place to meet people you'd never cross roads with otherwise.

Interests

Photography(http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesb/) , Philosophy, Psychology, Poetry, Languages, Travelling, Food, Music, Movies, Books and Arts.

Music, Movies & Books

Last movie I saw in the cinema: Of Rust and Bones ( I thought it would be sadder)

Last book I read: Just finished Borges' Fictions - absolutely charming and intelligent fairytale/myth like stories. Like dreaming a really good dream.

Last song, i couldnt get out of my head: Alt-J - Breezeblocks

One Amazing Thing I've Done

There was a moment, where I decided that anything could surprise me positively.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to take your photograph, if you'll let me. And I'll let you take mine. I'm using vintage mediumformat. You'll love it.

I am maybe delusional (oh well) but I make excellent pancakes.

Let's talk philosophy.

Oh, and I wanna learn more about wine.

And French, have to something about my French.

Countries I've Visited
