Since I was Little I have loved music, so now I love listening to it, sing, dance, and do karaoke, because in these moments I feel calm, relax, and i think that I can express my feelings when i do that. I listen to music daily, so I can say I sing daily too, I do karaoke with my sister weekly, it is a moment that we use to join, and to get more united. I love hiking, because I feel connected with the nature, and I have understood that is important to care my health so it is a good way to do it. In summer I love to go to the pool because it is very relax, I love sunny days so it´s a good way to take advantage of it. Now I want to change my lifestyle, so now I like to go to the gym, because I think I have to care my health. Also I like to watch movies and series when the day is cold, and I can´t do anything outside.
