About Me

ABOUT ME

"You met me at a very strange time in my life."
(Chuck Palahniuk)

romantic, adventurous, spontaneous

PHILOSOPHY

"When you buy something, you're not paying money for it. You're paying with the hours of your life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is one thing money can't buy. Life only gets shorter. And it is pitiful to waste one's life and freedom that way."
Jose Mujica
