I am a girl. You can call me Anisa. I live in Eastern Europe at the moment, but I plan to move to another country sooner or later. I'm a feminist. I don't eat meat or use any animal products. When I need money I work as a street musician/performer. I believe that the pure art is the one that comes from the streets. I prefer living my dreams than dreaming. I love looking at the night sky and getting lost in the city. I don't believe in God. In fact, I believe that God is a very cruel person. (And I'd never believe in a male creature too). I respect your beliefs but you have to respect mine too. The only thing I can't tolerate is any form of intolerance. I'm a contradiction, but very friendly if you get to know me.
I'd like to hear from people with whom I have at least something in common. I don't know if I have something to say when someone talks about TV shows or their favorite celebrities. Then, I'd love to hear from European people, but if you think you have something in common, feel free to write me:) Last, I'm looking for friends who don't disappear. I'm not interested in writing to someone who picks me because of my location (actually, I won't mention it here) or someone who says he's my friend and then I never hear from him anymore.
