About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Is to live carefully every second of my life, I dont want to regret of not having done what i could. If I fall I'll always try to recover

ABOUT ME

I´m a very open minded college student, great listener and good talker, love meeting ppl from all around the globe to share our lived experiences, to hang out, visit the cities, to make any plans or just have a nice chat. I wish time doesn´t exist cuz I love travelling and getting to new different places, and time is not a good partner then. I have learnt to appreciate the most insignificant things in life, I see beautifulness everywhere and enjoy every moment of my life: From sitting on a train passing by the city night lights at dawn to manipulating ppl during chat (lol) I love languages and would like to learn 12 at least (5 now), love discovering new cultures! I like reading, painting, drawing, playing sports (swimming, tennis, cycling, non-xtrem downhill, jogging, walking, trekking, etc)I would say I´m a very easy going person but little bit desorganize, sometimes very stressed cuz of work and college.

PHILOSOPHY

Do watever you want to do but learn from the experience, even mistakes are lessons to learn from!! Dont spend time planning the future, but live every second of you present!! Lot of Buddhist teaching in my life have been usefull to find out what is the purpose of one self in this universe.
