I really don't know, I never did, what to write here.
About me, what. WHAT DO YOU WANNA KNOW ABOUT ME?
Overall I can be very different, just like many others.
I've heard people calling me like, sharp/dumb, nice/bitchy, generous/mean, passionate/sweet, smart/easy to read, conventional/revolutionary so and so.
I personally think I'm more of a, well, nice person in general. I'd like to be at least. Kindness is a virtue. I'm ok with people, like I've worked in hostels and bars and stuff so I'm very talkative and open minded although I sometimes can be introverted. You are not likely see that side of me though as we'll probably just meet up for few days while one of us is traveling.
I'm straight forward and honest, at least I seem so, that most people would agree.
I'm also a huge fan of traveling, adventures, cinema, literature and most of all music!
I study sociology, which means I'm pretty political. Worry not, I won't jump and attack you with weird theories and names of politician. Actually I'm just an idealist, very romantic too, and I don't follow the politics of every country existant. I'm totally left tho, so If you ever vote for the right party, you probably don't wanna meet me. Same principal works on you being racist, sexist, homo/trans/biphobic and all, you know the kind. In that case, just run away from me cause I WILL jump and attack you and you'll have to call the police.
As a matter of fact, you should really ask yourself if you are totally, or if you try to be, -ism/-phobia free. The thing is that, you thinking or pretending you are a more less politically correct person when you aren't is like the worst and it sucks balls for me to deal with those 'I'm not a homophobe cz Ive gay friends' type. Really, please, I don't wanna be reminded of your existence.
Err I think you must have an idea on what kinda person I am right? I'm not that agressive though, especially with people I meet on the road, I'm just a very nice girl who likes to drink some and chill.
That's my film student side! I did a film school and I make films whenever given an opportunity, so I can be, and am often nothing but that easy going, talking about art and meaning or meaninglessness of life kinda bullshit with a cigarette on her hand sort. Just wanna have fun(no sexual subcontext here), see?
So please don't be afraid, I have tones of shit to talk about and most of them are fun, so if you find me interesting and you're not unbearably stupid("we're loosing our jobs so fuck refugees and immigrants" stupid I mean), even if you are a big fan of 50 shades of grey, yes, even so, we'll get along fine as I do with most of my couch surfers and hosts!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Cause it's economic? And could be really awesome(sometimes.)
As for the hosting, among all those meaningless stupid(I mean it) requests, there are few that are from some genuinely interesting people and I adore getting to know them!
Movies, Making movies, Music, Cooking, Books, Travel, Alcohol, New stuff. Staying sensitive.
Music, Movies, and Books
OH, don't even get me started.
I'm listening to Joy division and Arcade Fire a lot these days. Have always been into Nirvana, David Bowie and Pink Floyd, also The Doors, Pearl Jam, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Placebo, Cream, Amy Winehouse, etc etc. Basically almost all the classics and "some" cool Indies. I've been into Jazz as well lately and... Ugh. You should simply come and see my itunes library. I can tell you that I LOVE music, more than I've ever loved any person alive(let's say apart from my mom)
I like 'Le troisième mensonge' by A.Kristof, Maurice by E.M Forster and many of Victor Hugo, cause he's awesome, well, and few of Hermann Hesse and so and so.. Oh, Ursula Le guin's great. Any good SF makes me happy. Sci-Fi rocks, Childhood's end? Story of your life? Do I even need to say a word?
And movies! Did I mention that i'm like a film student? that I like, make films? that I like, go to the cinema at least twice a week? There are a lot of films that I adore. Can't just pick one. I love Running on empty(one of my favorite from the 80s), thought We need to talk about Kevin was brilliant, and 2013's Canne, la vie d'Adèle(Blue is the warmest color) was the sexiest movie of the year. Totally. Ida was breathtaking. Django Unchained was one of the most magnificent movies of Tarantino, I loved Whiplash and Short term 12 recently and er... What else, In a better world is one of my favorites, I enjoy Woody Allen, David Fincher's so great that I even hate him, Xavier Dolan's interesting, Lars von Trier and all the big directors, all those talented people. I dunno, there are just too many. If you wanna talk about movies, oh, I AM ALL YOURS. We'll just need few bottles of wine(or something else) and a long long night.
And as I'm editing it now, I just saw a documentary called Le sel de la Terre, and it was astonishing, simply beautiful.
That was 2014. I could go on with a list of movies I liked on 2015-2016, but it's just.. too much. Carol, though, was the most perfect film of Todd Haynes, maybe not the best, but the most perfect. Good movies come out every week, and I miss most of them but it's always a great pleasure talking about them.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was working in Sahara, summer 2013. Many dunes around, windy, hot, isolated, no electricity no water. Didn't do much during the day, but when the sun goes down, I went lie down on the dune, with a blanket and a bottle of gin. Sand all over my body, I smelled bad, there was no internet, nor friends nor lovers, but there were countless stars, blue and violet sky, the milky way and all. I had never seen anything like that before. It was overwhelmingly beautiful. I watched it for hours and hours. I know all of this sounds so cliché, but really, for the first time of life I knew what it's like to see the stars. I couldn't count them for they were so many, I couldn't see all of them within eyesight and it was frustrating. And nights like that went on and on. Some nights there were people playing drums, and I sang and smoked at the same time. Cheap gin tasted better than the finest wine I'd ever had. And I wondered what kind of person I would've been, growing under that sky everyday.
Well, must say there are other "amazing" things I've done, sure, but that was really something.
