I live life with enthusiastic and optimism, preferring to always face difficulty as a challenge. I never complicate and hate people who complicate. I love organizing time and spaces, I repudiate excesses and retain only what is necessary. I love a good dinner with good friends and talking through the night. I love summer, warmth, beach, jazz music and travel. I believe that true happiness lies in helping others.
