It's awkward writting things about oneself. This self-summary thing is like an abstract, right?
Ok, I was born in miami.... no I dont think thats the right way to start... Jorge Figueroa, a specimen of the Homo Sapiens species.... no I dont think thats the correct way either... I am a fun loving, happy, free spirited .... Ah! that sounds, weak, i guess... I love to learn and read and constantly learn and learn... that sounds geeky...
This is harder than I thought. Well, I finished my bachelors degree (shouldt girls get bachelorette degrees?) and just started my masters. I value work, friendships and honesty. I spend more time that I would like to admit on computers and I like to dance alot. I still believe I can be a opera singer (even though I cant sing shit) and I am mostly looking for a mindmate. Be that in a relationship or friends I like to surround myself with inteligent, open, creative, ambicious, relax, determined people. I like to discuss current trends in politics and social issues, and to hypothesize solutions. In my mind I am always working on my masters and PhD thesis subjects, want to get it right!.
I like watching soccer and basketball (not too much either, only good games). You can catch me in a river or beach at least once every two weeks (more of a river fan than a beach fan).
I earn my living writting irresponsables students homework and tutoring.
But mostly, I like to live and learn.
That original introduction was a way of me trying a creative self-summary. Re-reading that thing now gives me an opportunity to understand me and create a better, maybe more real self-summary.
I am the sort of person that will invent a new way of doing things. Not every single thing, just those that don't pass a certain efficiency standard that's created in my mind. That ranges from international trade to sex.
I like experiencing new things, but at small doses. That means that I will go to anywhere and do anything but I will check for dangers first and if I'm going adventuring I will sleep at least 4 hours a day.
Thirdly, I don't have alot of male friends. Mostly my friends are girls, so if you are a jealous girl we can be great friends, just about it. Either way will probably end friends I can't seem to know when flirting becomes just for fun or turns into something more serious.
Finally, I'm writting this on a foul mood and I can't believe you are still reading this. So let me leave you with a joke. A skeleton enters a bar and orders a beer and a mop.
(Must have been written in a bad day of 2013)
Each person can operate on different levels. Each level a mixture of temperament, emotions, confidence, stage-of-life, believes, and the whole plethora of social and cultural norms that we believe don't affect us in the slightest. I believe each one of my self-summaries represents me at different "levels" of my life. Although they can still be me or may not, they still represented who I was. These levels don't supersede one another, I very much prefer Version 1 to Version 2, but represent us in the fluctuating world of having too much time on out hands to write philosophical bullshit on OkCupid :)
Me? Who am I? Well I am an ever changing human. That being said, I am not a chameleon, but I can adjust myself to many different settings, few situations will make me feel me uncomfortable. Well, I think a bit more situations will now, From my very extrovert persona I've become more of an introvert recently.

3) A laptop, pc or ipad
6) and a world where there is no peace and quite. (it would get boring really fast, no?)
On a typical saturday morning I wake up rather early, like 9 and either read or go exploring or play videogames.
On a typical saturday night I do the same things that I do on a friday night.
On a typical sunday morning I get ready to eat with the family.
On a typical monday I plan how to conquer the world.
Things like being sincere, responsable, faithful and be treated with respect are things I take as given and uphold them as obvious truths. If you are only looking for that seek elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you are looking for intellectual growth, passionate discussions, adventures, explore the island and try new things as a means of personal improvement! Well, message me.
But if you are not from around here, I like to talk about anything. It is good to have friends all around the world!
