About Me

CURRENT MISSION

being-in-the-world/être-au-mond/Dasein

ABOUT ME

I love traveling above all other pleasures life can offer. I can both enjoy party as well as studying. I also love animals, I have 2black beautiful labradors: Camilo and Isolda. I used to have also a cat, but he sadly was killed on the highway :'(

I appreciate sincerity, honesty, I don't like when people make judgements on others just because their look is not the average.
Even though I am a bit shy, Im also easygoing

PHILOSOPHY

Jamás se convertirá en estrella
aquel cuyo rostro no irradie luz
Aquel que desea pero no obra,
engendra peste...
