    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.
