My self-summary
Architecture + Linguistics

2013: I'll spend a year in Bath. Friends are more than welcome.
I'm coming to Bath in September 2013.

I've started 2012 with a wisdom tooth coming in.
(I had long withdrawn from painful knowledge.)

A traveler in January. [2011: I keep being a traveller, but not just in January, which is a holiday month between the autumn and the spring term, but during the summer and holiday breaks as well.]

I miss myself quite frequently. When I eventually find me I try to arrange my mind talking. [2011: I don't miss myself as frequently as I did due to the indecent sleeping pattern architecture provides.]

I'm looking for friends to have a coffee with, hang out or whatever.

I am a, shipwrecked, and person

[2011: My life's full of new plans everyday that keep me alive and thrilled. Everything remains hidden but it's potentially awesome.]
What I’m doing with my life
I'll take up again my Architecture degree in Spain in September. I've recently come back from Norway and an earth construction course. And I'm pointing to Ireland and Bilbao before beginning. I would like to end up the Summer among (or amid?) wonderful landscapes, dim light, maybe rain and good company.

I have become involved in some instant architecture I've created. I feel comfortable working with complex concepts trying to make them simple. (Most of time I can't come to a good solution). That's why I admire people such as Cecil Balmond.

[2011: I keep studying Architecture, but also an English Studies degree. (Hopefully I'll end up being a professor in the Applied Linguistics Department of my Technical School.) I now have a more critical approach to literature and language and, yes, I've learnt a new language: Italian! Latin is on the way.

And I'm working as a community manager in a Spanish-English free website and I'll be very pleased to show you how Spanish works.]
I’m really good at
taking things seriously. I'm a passionate argumentative (without harming anybody). However, I'm the first one that bursts out.

In self-defense, I would say that I don't expect anything from anyone; that means I really believe in the goodness of the human being itself.

[2011: Apart from that, I'm the only person that roller skates Madrid at night. This decade I've only fallen down three times.]
The first things people usually notice about me
They look at me as if I were made out of eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many books to decide; although I appreciate very much Julio Cortázar's novels and what I call "raw" poetry, specially by the poet Roger Wolfe. I will get on well with you if you have ever thought that some lines in a book were written for you. (Easy, eh?)
Sum up: Essays, poetry, novels.

Script writers deserve all my respect. By now I can't enjoy films if I don't understand fully. That wasn't a problem with "Margot and the wedding" (feat. Nicole Kidman, but I liked the plot) or "Funny Games" (really necessary).
Sum up: Well-written scripts.

These days I'm listening to a French DJ called Martin Solveig. Classy and simple videos for his catchy songs. I have used "Boys & Girls" to get down to work a hundred times. I'm keen on Spanish singer-songwriters and folk, although I could hear almost anything.
Sum up: Spanish songwriters and folk, French vague, modern composers, tons of English songs.

[2012: Since I will never be Giuseppe Barbera, I'm all amazed by his piano arrangements.

[2013: Astrud + Hidrogenesse]

If it's good, I like it!
Six things I could never do without
What will I save in case of sinking?

[2012: 1. Swimming naked in lakes to a point of not knowing if I'd get to the shore.
2. Travelling by train with a Murder on the Orient Express feeling.]

[2013: 3. Artistic performances that explain a complex concept better than a manual.
4. Linguistics and discourse analysis.]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Me without being selfish. Now I can easily dissociate what I have to think of while thinking about me. Somehow I'm thinking about waiting me in vain.

In fact everything that would make me wonder. Some interests: how to state a croissant (Enric Miralles), people that I admire, the complexity and simplicity of things... looking at the sky at night.

[2011: ... The way we argue, we create arguments. Trips by train. How I can get rid of those comments about the age they think I am. Again, I believe architecture kills you silently, except in case of an earthquake.]
On a typical Friday night I am
Attending lessons at university or listening to a good conversation in the underground.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't take things as they are.

Fernando Pessoa has replied to me:
"Things are the only hidden meaning of things."

[2011: The idea of the dawning of Rome. It keeps being a powerful concept in my life.]
