About Me

Well.. my usual habits are...nap sleep ! Read different books at the same time, write in the subway, use "..." in text message and "bam" in all conversations, drink red wine (Graves !), take pics of streetlife, accumulate id pics of everyone, repair my broken Holga, take the subway and observe people... I believe swim is the best hangover killer, drawing at 4am, think, question myself, guess, know, trust, even if I get lost... I'll always find my way (ou pas...), have cat nap (yes again!), smile for nothing, laugh, dance all night long and talk to strangers, go to the cinema for the midnight screening, marcher sous la pluie, discover...
