About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much as possible

ABOUT ME

Im a bit silly, and i am good at having fun :). I am always up for doing something strange and new, and for going out drinking and dancing. I do my best to be as honest as possible and live my life the way I want.
I really like art; makin it, doin it, lookin at it, helpin make it and bein it :D
I also really like learing more about computers, there is so much potential with them.

PHILOSOPHY

Atheist, there is too much to worry about in this life to worry about the next. Live life with a light heart, because "it is too serious to be taken seriously" --Oscar Wilde
The people we meet and the relationships we make with them with are the only things of true significance.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably a shroom trip I had recently was the most insane/amazing thing I've seen. Probably won't do it again but it really made me appreciate living.

But besides that the Colombian country side is gorgeous and so is Brazil.

I'm always amazed when I seen my much younger siblings and the way they visibly grow.

The things some people can do with some tubes of paint, some paintbrushes and a canvas, or a camera, or a computer, just damn.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach just about anyone how to code, but its another thing entirely to get me to do it. :P

and i make really good paper mache masks, and am very crafty in general

plenty left to learn
