About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make my life special... special... special... and participate in making yours the same :)

ABOUT ME

Anytime I try to describe myself I'm getting into confusion...! I prefer to let friends doing it for me :)

I'm realistic but I dream too much
I'm shy but full of ambitions
I'm not a drinker nor a dancer but somehow I like when it happens to me to be drunk on the dancefloor :)

Depending of the topics I can like taking part to some brainstormings but sometimes I also like to be here without talking, just listen from people and learn from how they behave :)

PHILOSOPHY

Do not miss opportunities

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Special, magic, amazing !

I've met so many cool Csers that I got addicted to the CS world :)

I had wonderful experiences in Beijing, my first CS life abroad :) It was really enriching and I found so many good friends out there.
Hosting mainly.

I also met many CSers in Paris, who were there for a few days or for a while. We spent time together through some collective meetings, or just for a walk, to take some drinks, etc...

It starts by a "are you free for a drink?" and it turns out finding good people :)

Interests

I love reading and being in my book-bubble when I'm in the subway...
I love wandering in the narrow streets, looking above, trying to make some special discoveries...
Spend time with friends, talking, sharing ideas or saying bullshits...

And I'm into photography http://www.flickr.com/photos/bettinaoua/

So hard to make a list coz everyday new interests come to me and then the new ones replace the old ones...!

Music, Movies & Books

The list is too long to be put here, but my readings are mainly novels of various kind, and I'm interested in a great range of music (except electro and rn'b of nowadays...), and about movies I think that I like more deep ones than comedies...
But if you start to talk to me about these stuffs it can take hours and hours coz I'm never able to tell exactly which ones are my favorites... :)

Here are some:

- Movies: Fight club, Once, Old boy, Eternal sunshine, The science of sleep, Identity, Sin City, Monster, Ray, O'brothers, Babel, Wild at Heart, American History X, Little miss sunshine, Dogville, The bride corpse, Coffee & Cigarettes, Memento, Into the Wild, Crash, A Beautiful Mind, The others, The Machinist, The number 23, Big Fish, Requiem for a dream,...

- Books: Aaah if I've to translate all titles in English it will be complicated... You must know that in France we have the weird habit to change and translate every titles and even their meaning! Hum... I could say that I love Eric Emmanuel Schmitt, Charles Bukowski, Boulgakov, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, (I'm gonna fill this later)...

- Music: I like to hear the instruments, that's why I don't like so much all sorts of electro music...
I love as much jazz and reggae music than electric guitars, and old french songs :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a French & Business teacher and head of the French department @ Culture Yard (a nice cultural/language center located in a hutong).
If you're interested in French culture or language I'd be glad to share :)

Otherwise I've started to learn Chinese and espagnol lately :) I'm slow but still, I'm into it. So if you'd like to share with me I'd be glad as well :)
