    Crazy Indie rock and cats lover, genuine, creative, annoying and lovable! The kind of person you will be always happy with : D I am not a party girl, love the peace of my bedroom, love to read, to draw... It seems kind of boring but I would say I have a different conception of & quot; having fun& quot;... I have it, definitely. Hope to find someone that I can feel related to, start an awesome friendship and be able to help each other to improve language skills. See u then :)
