About Me

CURRENT MISSION Share stories!

ABOUT ME I'm a librarian (I know, it seems boring - and sometimes it is). I like people and their stories. I like to read, to hear and to imagine stories of any kind, but maybe the absurd ones are my favorites. I'm totally addicted to videogames, RPGs, animes and books and japanese stuff I love jogging, hiking, trekking, climbing and such! I absolutely love to dance until the night becomes day. I always try to be funny in these desciptions but it never works... like now...

PHILOSOPHY I think everything has to be well-balanced, but sometimes things can just be crazy and off balance. Ilove big cities, but I also love the countryside. I care a lot more about people than about things and almost all I have fits in my backpack. I prefer long and cheap travels than the short ones. I love camping. I love hitchhiking. I am a party animal when I want to be and I drink a lot when I have the opportunity to do it with people that I love. I also love to be superficial when I have the chance to do so, just because nobody needs to be always serious. I laugh hard. I am a better listener than talker. I talk random stuff. I dream about building a house where everyone that I love lives together in front of the ocean. I do my best to be a good person, but being nice 100% of the time is not human, so I may be boring sometimes. I do my best to my keep my attitudes according to what I believe. I believe in love. Any kind of love.

My favorite quote is: "We must begin by frankly admitting that the first place in which to go looking for the world is not outside us but in ourselves. We are the world. In the deepest ground of our being we remain in metaphysical contact with the whole of that creation in which we are only small parts. Through our senses and our minds, our loves, needs, and desires, we are implicated, without possibility of evasion, in this world of matter and of men, of things and of persons, which not only affect us and change our lives but are also affected and changed by us. The question, then, is not to speculate about how we are to contact the world - as if we were somehow in outer space - but how to validate our relationship, give it a fully honest and human significance, and make it truly productive and worthwhile for our world" - MERTON, Thomas. Love and living.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING I have been on couchsurfing for some years now and from time to time this place gets a little bit more weird. Anyhow, I like to host/surf-with people who are real travellers and have their minds open for another culture/people/place. Open minded people and those with no prejudices at all are always welcome! :)

Interests

Trekking, dancing, sunsets and sunrises, cooking, traditional music and food, arts, and weird stuff. I also tend to like hippies, people who do meditation and vegetarians - although I am not. I am very interested in hearing funny stories and having long conversations during the night. Also, I always love to dance, sing in a karaoke and doing sports.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: MPB, Bossa Nova, New Age, Rock, Pop and weird music from Japan.

Books: I like many, but Clarice Lispector is my favorite writer. And I have a crush for Shakespeare, whether he existed or not.

Games: Chrono Cross is my favorite, followed by Journey, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy, The Last of Us, Dragon Quest, Valkyrie Profile, Super Mario World and Donkey Kong.

Movies: Kill Bill, House of Flying Daggers, Mulan, any film from Disney, Little Miss Sunshine, Paranormal Activity and stupid horror movies, like Pirana 3D.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've done: Made 15 children scream "KABOOM" with me until our lungs give out, causing a pandemonium in the place. Learned how to say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. 9 months hitchhiking in South America. Learned to ride a bike at 23 year-old, yahoo!

I've seen: A pressure cooker exploding. An old man laughing uncontrollably. Antigos beach and its uncountable fireflies dancing in the evening. Carlos Birthday party in Jujuy. Mountains at the southest part of the planet.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can teach a little bit of Portuguese and Spanish. Also, how to dance samba, funk carioca and basic steps of contemporary dance. I can cook fantastic vegetarian pizzas, banana toasts and chocolate crepes.

Learn: Basics of any other language, cooking, capoeira, reggaeton, breakdance, hand-standing, cartwheel, martial arts.
