"The eyes are in the mirror of the soul" ... and so I like to write down everything I see in my blog. My name is Luisa Fernanda Alvarez and my blog is called "Raining crazy thoughts" And I study industrial design. Why did you call your blog "Raining crazy thoughts"?

So I wrote some crazy things, like the blog says, but at the end what I wrote wasn't so crazy.
