About Me

It's a huge and very interesting subject on which we could discuss for centuries.... And with this little starting sentence, you know that modesty is one of my qualities. ;-) But to know me more, the simplest is to meet and to discuss then come here!

But I know you need some information before to come. As a quick resume : man but totally lesbian ;-), I am a freelance website developer then... a geek also. But not a nerd :-) I am an ABSOLUTE CHOCOLATE JUNKIE who tries to detoxify but I think it's an impossible mission. :))))

I am a utopian dreaming of a perfect world where the bastards will be less charismatic than the good people and where people recognize their fault instead of trying to find someone else to blame.

I am an open minded atheist and without being an extreme ecologist, I wish a world where human beings begin to respect the planet that provides us the conditions for living and they will stop thanking her with messy and looting.

Meanwhile, I am trying to do not live in the past but learning from the present and move toward the future and to be an actor in this world and not only a spectator.

You will say "your speech is evidence and so classic" but it is sometimes useful to recall just some evidence. :-)

My friends say I'm nice but stubborn when I'm convinced of being right which is very often :-) (remember that I am modest...) but as a summary:
- Rule No. 1: I am always right
- Rule No. 2: If I am wrong, refer to Rule No. 1. :--)))))
They say I am energetic but now that I think about it, I think they say exhausting!
They say that I am full of humor but some of them say pathetic. :-/ I work on that!

For more details about me if it's not enough, please consult me during opening hours. :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet people because I think you can't become yourself and evolve alone.
I like sharing knowledge, experiences, culture, outlook...
