About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be happy and free :D

ABOUT ME

I travel like Bear Grylls ! You are a hardcore traveler with a stomach of steel, and you'll eat a grub out of a tree long before you are even hungry. You can't remember the last time you showered, but you still look good. What type of traveler are you? Take BootsnAll's Travel Quiz to find out.

I'm a 29 year old girl (23 when i joined CS eeheheh) who was born and grew up in Portugal..i always had a crush on being innovative regarding the way of thinking lololol I was always seeked to be a big intelectual or something like that lol a writter...a volunteer....whatever ehehe As i grew up i got obsessed about getting lost in this world and getting to know him as he knows me :P Now i can't think of myself as a normal girl who expects to have a common and following patterns life...i just want to live....be loved, love and make friends that always stay in your heart....But,there's always a but...sometimes i just speak to much and i get kind of anoying lol i'm highly independent and sometimes too much...

PHILOSOPHY

Life is two days and carnival three so enjoy it :)

Look always on the brighter side cause life is a lesson itself and hapinness is made out of moments :)

Dark clouds and bad feelings are similar..they pass trough and eventually they fade away eventually :)
