Sobre mí

CURRENT MISSION

Don't visit, but LIVE in Barcelona!

ABOUT ME

I can be a bit quiet and a little shy, but I love adventures. I love new places and meeting new people. Sometimes I drive two hours to spend the night on the beach and go home when the sun goes up. I'm nocturnal. I sing at random without realizing that I'm doing it. I am a dog person, and I belong outdoors. I enjoy writing short stories, sketching, and painting, and eventually I want to be a writer. I am waiting to find something worth telling the world. When I graduate from law school in May 2011, I plan to practice immigration law in the United States. I am an advocate for immigrants' rights, and I recently took on my first asylum case as a student. Helping my client was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My only religion is love.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am new to CouchSurfing; I joined because I plan to study abroad during fall 2010 at ESADE in Barcelona. I studied abroad once before at UBA in Buenos Aires, and I still regret having only experienced the city as a tourist and only associated with other foreign students, always speaking English. In Barcelona, I want to meet people who can show me the city as it really is, and I want to be able to call myself fluent in Spanish when I get home. I think CouchSurfing will help me achieve those goals.

Música, películas y libros

My favorite movie is Almost Famous because the character who calls herself Penny Lane is so much like me, and at the same time so much like what I hope to become.

My taste is music is widely varied, but my deepest affection is for 1960s classics like Simon & Garfunkel or Creedence Clearwater Revival. As far as modern artists go, a few of my favorites are Ben Harper, U2, Coldplay, Ben Folds, Damien Rice, Jack Johnson, and James Blunt - but also Nine Inch Nails and Nirvana, and Mana and Juanes. I also have weaknesses for bubbly pop music and anything with a good beat - particularly reggaeton. I've recently been trying to expand my knowledge of Latin music in general.

As for books, I don't even know where to start! I don't usually read books more than once, and I've read more than I can remember, so making a list of favorites is difficult. I'll just say that the best I've read recently was Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides.
