My name is Catarina and I'm a 18-year-old girl who lives in a beautiful city in the north of Portugal called Porto. I'm very patriotic and I absolutely love my country that is full of History and has a unique culture of which I’m very proud of!
I’m on secondary school in Social and Human Sciences course. I’m passionate about everything related with languages and with the area of humanities. In future, I’m considering following Law.
I am very interested in knowing a bit of your language, so I ask you to, please, write a few words in your mother tongue in your postcard so I can become, gradually, familiar with a large number of languages. That is one of the things that fascinates me in Postcrossing: the possibility to have contact with a big range of wonderful cultures and countries! :)
I like to call myself a “professional dreamer”. In my opinion, it wouldn’t be possible for us to have goals in our lives without this little imagination side we all have in our hearts.
Oscar Wilde is my favourite author of all time, my main inspiration, since writing is one of my hobbies (and one of my future professional activities, I hope!). He wrote a sentence which totally defines who I am: “I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex.” The magnificent work he left us motivates me to appreciate the little things in our world, to never stop being myself and, most of all, to fight for my objectives.
Postcards, music (all genres - from rock to classical), anime & Japan, books & literature, photography, cinema and ballet fill my cloudy days with a magnificent rainbow. Animals also mean very much to me, especially cats. I’m a huge cat lover. Cats are in everything that I do, and in future I hope I can help many stray cats over the streets. The passion of my life is a lovely and cute cat called Freddie, a non-pedigreed American Shorthair which can’t stop giving me all his love and gratitude. We are very united!
Send me whatever postcard you want, I’ll be happy with anything that pleases you. If it makes you smile, it will sure make me smile as well! :D Show me something about you, write a little about it and your life and you’ll certainly make my day! Every card is precious to me *
Still, if you have trouble choosing what to send, here’s my wishlist:
-*city/country views* (famous monuments, historic places, something peculiar from where you live)
-cats & other felines
-cinema (movie posters, movie stars, movie directors,...)
-famous people of your country (especially writers, directors and musicians)
-food (typical dishes of your country,...)
-Disney (especially princesses!)
-flowers (especially red roses)
-cute images and figures (like Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters)
The most important is sending all your love trough your postcard! I’ll be truly grateful ♥
