    I like cats, indie rock music, chocolate, reading, drawing, watching movies and eating pizza. ( I know... I swear I&# 39; m not five years old.) I&# 39; d basically like to find someone to practice my English with or who would like to practice Spanish. :) I also like Russian and French, which are languages I don&# 39; t fully understand but would like to learn.

    me gusta conocer cosas nuevas en la vida, al menos siempre que tengo la posibilidad lo hago y esta es una de ellas... además soy cariñoso, amable y buen amigo de quienes lo merecen, me gustan muchas cosas como por ejemplo: ver mi familia feliz y unida, también me gusta conocer las artes desde la pintura, la actuación, la fotografía, la musica, en específico la música clásica y la romantica aunque escucho todo tipo de musica, pero si puedo escoger lo hago, también conocer otros idiomas, para una mejor comprención y una facil comunicación ncon el mundo que me rodea y no permanecer ajeno al mundo exterior por así decirlo de alguna manera, esto es una pequeña reseña de lo pudiera ser una descripción personal. a todo aquel que tenga la posibilidad de leer este texto lo invito a que sea mi amigo ( a), agradecer además por su tiempo precioso y la posibilidad de que sea mi amigo
