Easy-going girl in the late roaring twenties. Recently crashed due to moral hazard but far from being greatly depressed.

Would be described as shallow by non divers only, though I sometimes favor a simple chat too. Mostly in good mood.

I hope to improve my English with the help of a native speaker. In return I can talk and/or practice German with you.


If you think we can do better than the team of Phoebe and Joey (friends, in s10) with their horrible french tutions.. "mon Dieu!", I`d be happy for a collaboration!

I've been studying Korean for several months on my own now. It's working quite well and it's fun but sometimes I come across questions that I can't figure out because I don't know any native speakers.
I am looking for someone who could help me out (doesn't have to be regularly). You don't need to prepare anything, I am following an online course and have tons of questions prepared for you
