Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a poet, philosopher, artist, dancer, and adventurer looking for
fellow wanderlust travelers through space and time: people who
listen to music with their souls; who are quick to laugh at
themselves; and those who look upon this world with wonder, awe,
sometimes sorrow, but more-often-than-not JOY.
Soy malabarista de palabras, imágenes, y ideas. Nací en Manizales,
Colombia, pero me mudé a los EE.UU. con mi familia cuando solo
tenía quatro años. Por un lado, español es mi lengua maternal. Por
otro lado, a veces sento que es como mi mano izquierda porque el
inglés me vienen mas rápido y natural. Yo fui criado por dos
culturas muy distintas.
Je veux et j'ai besoin de pratiquer le français donc si vous savez
français, écrivez-moi! J'aime la philosophie et la poésie
française. Mon auteur préféré est Gilles Deleuze.

cool institution where everyone that goes or works there loves

because I will be living with two of my best friends. I'm starting

bars and clubs--think art gallery, theater, jazz club, open air
concert, night swimming, camping. A good Friday night is a group
friends have dinner together, then we share a bottle of wine, great
discussion, and a hookah. Another Friday night might be jamming
house party with a DJ and tons of people where I'll just start
dancing with strangers and by the end at 5 am we're all friends and
we're eating pancakes with maple syrup.
