About Me

ABOUT ME

Sentimental and emotional, I tend to act upon my intuition and get attached/used fast to new people/new situations. When I like sth/sb, I go 100% for it. Have experienced many things in life but I still feel very naive, a bit like I don't really learn from my experiences. However, I get over things and move on pretty fast; and also have a practical/business rational side which prevents me to go completely nuts;-) I m a risk-taker and always look for adventure, like to experience everything, i don't wanna die stupid...

PHILOSOPHY

"Good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement." - Mark Twain -

"The only constant is change." - Heraclitus -

"Vision without action is merely a dream, Action without vision merely passes the time. But Action with Vision can change the world." - Nelson Mandela -

The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynn Lavner

"The longest journey begins with a first step."

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." — Martin Luther King Jr.

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." — Martin Luther King Jr.

Interests

intercultural learning, games, travelling, languages, badminton, skate, markets, cooking, dancing, reading, sociology, psychology, philosophy, economics, politics. I actually like everything that makes me travelling, concretely, in my mind or by experiencing new sensations... I like ambiguity, originality and gentle chaos.

Music, Movies & Books

Favorite books: "La part de l'autre" (Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt", "Les echelles du Levant" (Amin Maalouf), "Les identites meurtrieres"(Amin Maalouf), "For those I loved"(Martin Gray), "The analyst" (John Katzenbach), "Le triomphe de la cupidite" (Joseph Stiglitz), and all Harlan Coben novels.

Favorite song: "Né en 17 à Leidenschtad" (Jean-Jacques Goldman). In general my favorite music style to dance is reggae & dancehall or 80s, and to listen at home 80s kitsch romantic songs & other oldies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Waking up right for the sunrise on some turkish beach where i was sleeping along with a friend and a random dog that came to protect us, and being absolutely thrilled by this feeling of intense freedom. Felt very close to my inner self and at the same time deeply connected to everything around me, very special moment..
