Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am French and I have been living in Barcelona for 14 years.

and I like a lot of conflicting things, and it's the tension
between those things that I find interesting.

outdoorsy type, although I really enjoy hiking once in a while. I
also enjoy yoga (the kind that makes you sweat).
Lately I am exploring meditation and consciousness, and it's a lot
more interesting and far-reaching than I used to think. Wow.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job. I love it so much. I get to explore a ton of different
subjects. I refuse to specialize, it would get boring.
Sniffing out bullshit.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a bloody nice person, polite and sensible. Yes.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, fruit, wiggle room, 8 hours sleep, nail polish on my
toes, personal space.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How government would be so much better in so many ways if
