ABOUT ME

Please, READ ALL MY PROFILE BEFORE ASKING FOR SURF!

Hello Stranger!

Take this not as shouting, but as saying it very seriously:
I KNOW COUCHSURFING IS JUST FAMOUS NOW AND MANY NON SENSE PEOPLE ARE JOINING... IF YOU DON´T CARE ABOUT READING MY PROFILE AND MEETING ME, I WON´T CARE ABOUT SAYING NO TO YOUR REQUEST. YES, I AM AN OLD-SCHOOL COUCHSURFER.

This is the place where I´m very proud to come from (Recife, PERNAMBUCO): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5byO9CmhBDc&feature=youtu.be And being "pernambucana" says much about me, as I love popular culture, dancing and eating natural fruits (no problem to mixt with alcohol). So, please, don´t expect me enjoying impositive capitalist stuff or drinking coca cola.

I LOVE: to EAT and to cook, even I don´t have much time for it. At home our diet is varied and we cook meat separated from the rest, one of my sister is vegetarian and I don´t like meat a lot. Often my mom prepares something and we invite you to prove some tipical food and juice, but you can always show us some cuisine if you like to cook, bake, prepare.
I LIKE: [a lot] to talk. Time to have fun, let´s have fun. Time to be serious, I´m serious [I swear! I try!]. It´s not like: "I´m about this or that" - I believe that we have to live what is up to live at each certain time, there are moments for different things. I can watch a movie at home with my boyfriend, enjoying just drinking with friends, rock all night in a disco, go to a reggae concert and be pleasure in a monday-family-lunch. Did I mentioned I like to talk? Ah, and I really, really like receiving postcards
I UNLIKE: non-fellowship spirit, discrimination, LIES, gossip, not caring about the others, lack of consideration, no respect, rude people, parasitism, lack of iniciative.I don´t like pets since my beloved dashound Duda has gone. My BIG exception if for 'Bola Maria', my Calopsita, member of the family and owner of my great appreciation like few humans can.Closing remarks: Carolina REALLY likes city tours and going out at night!I always try to do the maximum inside my posibilities and lines, but I´m always busy and sometimes that busy I can´t accompany you, that´s why I ask your comprehension to know I´m not private guide or baby sitter. I know I may seem boring and/or scaring, but I don´t bit very strong.Myspace Cheer Up Comments

PHILOSOPHY

RESPECT, APRECIATE AND ENJOY THE DIFERENCES.

"Joie de vivre" [Me by Maxime]

"If you can dream it, you can do it." [Johan]

"Bom mesmo é ir a luta com determinação, abraçar a vida e viver com paixão, perder com classe e viver com ousadia, pois o triunfo pertence a quem mais se atreve. E a vida é muito para ser insignificante." [Charles Chaplin]

"Tudo é uma questao de tempo e fé."

Sun glasses are kinda like life and living it fully... Go BIG or go home! /O*O\ [Don]

Mandamentos do viajante:
1- Nunca medir a distância.
2- Nunca mediar a altura.
3- Nunca medir o tempo.
4- Ser dos caminhos mas não lhes pertencer.
5- Conversar com o silêncio.
6- Encarar o sol e a chuva como companheiros.
7- Não caminhar como se fosse uma obrigação.
8- Não encarar o caminho como um desafio.
9- Respirar fundo e pisar leve.
10- Repartir com todos o pão. Até com o cão.
