About Me

CURRENT MISSION
To Live!

ABOUT ME
People and friends say that I'm completely mad...
Well... I THINK SO!!! :D

Whatelse?
I'm Italo-Indian which is something incredible itself...
As a general thing, I would say that is an amazing mix, about me, well maybe it didn't work out that good :P

PHILOSOPHY
...CARPE DIEM... and CARPE with loads of FUN!
Never regret anything that made you smile.

Explore. Dream. Discover.

Quant'è bella giovinezza,
che si fugge tuttavia!
Chi vuol esser lieto, sia:
di doman non v'è certezza...

How beautiful youth is,
and yet quickly flies away!
Let whoever wants, to be happy:
of tomorrow there is no certainty...
