    Я очень креативная, я очень ленивая, я большой патриот, и когда встаю на весы, я восклицаю О, my God! А ещё я рифмоплёт :) Вот как то так.... 0_о Im from Belarus. I live in Zaslavl. Im looking for friends all over the planet, and I&# 39; m against international discord ( including Ukraine). In me there is blood Ukrainians, Belarusians, and I am against the separation of peoples. And we, Belarusians, not Bulbash people like everyone else, we eat the same thing as you. :)))))))))) Sorry for the mistakes, I do not know much English and I use a translator.

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.
