About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Still trying to figure it out...and trying not to go nuts on the way...(hard one)

ABOUT ME

I would say most of the time I´m a nice, fun and easy-going girl. I love the idea of getting in touch with people really different from me, from different cultures and backgrounds.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is rich of feelings and sensations and I don´t want to miss a thing.

I treat people as I want people to treat me. That means I do can be a bitch with people who treat me badly.

I truly believe I can learn something from pretty much everybody I cross on the streets, which may eventually makes me look like insane (talking to strangers on the streets). Sometimes I am just too nice, but I´m working on that. I just can´t be that nice in the morning, in the following 30 minutes after waking up :) I actually bite in the morning :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I really enjoy rock n´roll and I´m beggining to like samba music, which is great, I have to say! I also enjoy bossa nova (also known as new wave) and forro, both brazilian music.
I like any kind of music that makes my body trembles - powerful drums and guitar solos make that (Led Zeppelin BBC Sessions blows my mind)...also nice soft beats like Bossa Nova.
Movies: Almost famous and School of rock are my favorite.
Books: thousands. One book really touched me: Germinal. Great stuff.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Breaking free and starting aaaaaall over by myself. Scary. Totally worth it.

Diving in a cave at Chapada Diamantina was really great. Wanna do it again!

Sleeping on a desert beach under the stars and face a crab 10 centimeters away from my nose in the morning was also great (and a bit scary...I like my nose).

Hopefuly, more to come...

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a thing or two about life. And about Corporate Law. And I can cook. :) Hum...not enough, hum? Ok, I can teach you how to make a very good caipirinha! :)
