About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to do my best

ABOUT ME

Hi there!
I'm Elena, an Italian girl living in Barcelona since three years now. I've always been trying to find my place in this world,where I could express myself fully and this is the closest I can imagine (I don't mean for Barcelona only, that is a wonderful city, but for the situation I'm living in general)..but of course works are still in progress! I'm very independent and curious. I think I'm quite open minded, and it's easy for me to be comfortable with people, when they are sincere and sociable and have something to share,just like most of the people in the CS community. In the opposite, I must say I have always been on my own too, finding it difficult to get conformed with things I don't like and way of life that I don't feel mine, above all I hate the mass culture, the fact that the majority of people must adjust themselves to what is "normal" for the majority to feel fine..
So I just started to create my own little world in Barcelona, with my couch and life-mate, Alex(so I'd better speak about "our" little world).

PHILOSOPHY

A smile can make a day betterDo what you can, with what you have, where you are.
