Please describe your hobbies
I like to draw and paint whenever my imagination comes to me, ride a bike when I feel bored and want to free myself, go to the movies because I like to feel that I can be part of those amazing stories on the giant screen, go out to eat with my family and friends because spending time with those I love increases my desire to live, travel to fill my memory with my mental photographs and beautiful memories of the beautiful landscapes that our beautiful planet has and above all I love spending time with my family and my pets that are the most important and beautiful part of my life.
