About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an accountant who is actually a passionate (yet useless) baker.

I hate routines, i like to wake up everyday and ask myself, what do I want to do today and do it.
I like to always challenge myself by doing new things and learn from everything.
I am the kind of person who doesn't care if he wins or loses, because the important part is the game itself.

I love talking with people as I think that is the only way to understand life itself, by seeking to understand all the 7 billion universes inside this planet.
I like watching all the simple things in life that make life worth enjoying.

PHILOSOPHY

•You can only be young and stupid while you are young.

•You will never be younger than you are at this moment.

•You can buy an expensive car, or a cheap car and many roasted chickens.

•History is not to be told, its to be done.

•Every day is a new adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share

Honestly I like every human I meet.
It shows me how society and culture have shaped each of us in a different way, and how we resist or embrace change.

TEACH

Switching your tv off, will make your life MUCH MUCH more enjoyable!

A smile changes everything, and its free! .... i wish coffee was free :(

Be humble, complain and induce change.

Shake your little bubble, and find out who you are.

Share!
