About Me

ABOUT ME

Hi y'all!
I'm a funny french, cameroonian, austrian and swiss mix... free spirit currently figuring out what to do after 3 yrs in china..
I love finding myself in the craziest situations, meeting new people and having a great laugh (often too loudly lol)!
random random random
I always enjoy a chatty time with beers and cigs in parks...
I would describe my self as an outgoing & easygoing, open minded person... well yeah otherwise I wouldnt on here :3
I like to make fun of myself and this paradoxal world we live in...
um, here is an embarassing thing you kinda need to know; I have a bad bananaphobia ... no jokes it does exists : http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/confessions-of-bananaphobics !!

I am up for pretty much anything new so let's meet !

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that you're on this planet for a reason, you just gotta find a purpose i guess... anyway, haven't find mine yet but I'm enjoying life the way it is right now ;)also... normal gets you nowhere: every body is different in his own weird way and u shouldnt be afraid to show it :p" HIGH ON LIFE " This might actually describe my mindset. A friend told me this once, since then I am a true believer of this statement ! The highest on life you are, the better you feel =)
I just take things as they come and try to have the most fun I can. Life is all about the places I go and the PEOPLE I meet, share with, and experience.

Interests

Learning new langages such as chinese right now, dancing, partying, music, arts (contemporary, modern and street art mostly) willing to succeed to do a proper graffiti once ! & culture, independent movies, feminism (or egalitarism if you prefer, but i like feminism its related to a french historic movement)
exploring cities on foot, waiting for the sunshine to rise in the morning after a drunken party and deciding it's time to go to bed ah!
parties & gigs, music festivals, wines and spirits
I'm fascinated by abandonned buildings, if you're in paris check les frigos( full of artists and open galleries), looking forward to visit some more on the road !
I love accents sometimes obsessed with them ahah, I can fake a really good french cameroonian accent, Id be curious about your fake or real accents too!

movies: Fave screen writers : sofia coppola, wong kar wai, pedro almodovar. fave movies : two days in Paris, l'auberge espagnole, into the wild, away we go, broken english, the kids are alright, i have many more but lately I've been into the kind of movies that make you psychologically incomfortable, the twisted, weird, dark ones

Music: anything that has a great beat... I like punk rock a lot!! a few bands I really love : crystal castels, death grips, and the yeah yeah yeahs. also a hudge fan of electronic music ,dubstep,drum & bass, techno, cant deny my love for drum & bass parties !!! some reagga,...western n south african music !! shit this list is never gonna end
