About Me


make the most of my life


To resume = what my friends tell about me inspired me my nickname
I like community
I got 6 siblings all younger and all marvellous ;o)
I worked 6 years as a computer scientist in a laboratory till november 2008 in Paris area
Then I realised (I accepted) that I wanted to be a teacher
So I quitted my job and now I'm studying hard to pass the competitive exam to become a biology/geology teacher in France
As I can study everywhere I moved to Sweden to follow my man
I've felt like moving abroad for a long time and wuhu now I realize how it's having an influence on your life

Now back in France I'm an happy teacher in life&earth sciences (as we call it in France) in secondary shcool - but soooooooo much work - don't got many time for now


pour résumer mon caractère = mon pseudo vient de ce que mes amis disent de moi
J'aime la communauté, j'ai 6 frères et sœurs tous plus jeunes que moi et tous merveilleux ;o)
J'ai travaillé pendant 6 ans en région parisienne en tant que bioinformaticienne puis j'ai réalisé (accepté) que je voulais être prof
du coup j'ai quitté mon boulot et en ce moment je révise pour passer le CAPES SVT et l'Agreg SVTU (eheh on sait jamais)
j'en ai profité, même si ce n'était pas le meilleur moment, pour suivre mon copain en Suède et ainsi combiner une autre de mes envies, vivre à l'étranger... impressionnant de voir tout ce que cela implique

De retour en France je suis prof de SVT, bien contente mais c'est tellement de boulot que je n'ai plus bcp de temps libre pour CS...


photos ;o)


live and love

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Working as a teacher is more work than I expected... not so much time for 2 years now but still in touch with what's around CS
I hosted a lot few years ago, met great people I'm still in touch with... what else ;o)


I won't host anymore until I come back to Paris

Music, Movies, and Books

all movies (hum actually... except horror's one...)
love a lot of music's style to sing, dance, enjoy from old french songs to hip hop, I love Dinah Washington & Billie Holiday so... depends on my mood
read lots of book also with a little preference for detective story taking place in ancient times (series as Eraste Fandorine from B. Akounine or the juge Ti from R. Van Gulick)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I finally met Africa with my travel to Mali and I'll never forget all the answers I found and all that I learned there in only 1 month
now I feel it let's talk about that (but there's no stop button...)
