i'm raquel and i'm from lisbon | the sea, a beer and jimi hendrix. that's all i ask for


this is one long ass text so you’re probably not going to read everything. i was also bored as fuck and that’s the reason this is so big.

yeah, so, i really don’t know where to start so i guess the beginning? i’m a GIRL. yes this country (portugal) is a piece of shit because everything is expensive as fuck and it’s not somewhere i wanna live in the future, which leads to the sort of 2nd part of my life. i wanna live in california, huntington beach specially. a town full of surf culture and it’s pretty much paradise for me. i plan on going with a very special and close friend. she currently lives in brazil. we met in 10th grade, and she’s been one of the most important people in my life. she’s black, i mean, almost black, but she acts like one crazy black woman. we talk everyday. i plan to get a job at the asp sometime. it’s my dream to travel around the world with the best surfers on the planet. my passion about surfing came when i first saw ‘soul surfer’. i wanted to know more about bethany hamilton so my best friend had the book and i read it like 5 times in a row. i started watching surf clips from alana and bethany cause they were pretty much the only surfers i knew. oh and andy irons! I DIDN’T KNOW WHO KELLY FREAKING SLATER WAS CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT SHIT? with time i started watching online competitions and i was glued to the computer watching every single one, as i still do to the present day.

i was always described as the funny kinda girl. i usually like to make everyone laugh, i like to make people happy. i also start crying when someone i like cries cause i cannot stand their sadness. which is lame and i’m not lame.

i like all kind of sports. i love soccer, in a country dominated by it, i’ve learned that soccer is awesome and proud to say we have the best player in the world (RONALDOOOO FUCK YOU MESSI). i love tennis, volleyball, basketball and so many other sports… i don’t surf now. i used to surf with my cousin in praia do baleal in peniche. i don’t surf because i don’t have a board, it’s fucking expensive and it sucks to live in a place where the waves are amazing and you just watch other people getting barreled and shit. 

i play guitar and the drums, i’m not a pro though, i know a few songs. i like everything a normal girl doesn’t like. i don’t like all that katy perry and nicki minaj justin bieber kind of songs. i respect who likes it, but i can’t stand those songs, i mean ‘baby you’re a firework’? for real katy perry? so deep. i like bands like arctic monkeys, the strokes, led zeppelin, the doors, jimi hendrix and so on.. but my all time favorite is radiohead.
