    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 :)

    « Algo de mi» Si... sincero, simpático y sociable cuando hay que hacerlo... Tolerante hasta no mas poder. Me gusta leer mucho y escribir unos cuantos garabatos... Pero algo escribo. Soy amigo para el quiere un amigo!! No veo actualmente y ni veré en el futuro inédito ser mejor que nadie, me basta con ser único en la autenticidad personal. (...) (:
