Timothée Paris meets Carlota Ruiz de Velasco

Question from Pierre B : If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be?

I guess one of my friend's cats. I wouldn't need to worry about a single thing. I just could lazily walk around and eat whenever I want. I am not sure I would be the kind of cat that lets everybody pet her, but I would not mind a few gentle carresses to make the humans feel useful and loved.

 Q1) How did you start your day today? 

Told myself that I should have put my book down way before 2AM. 

Q2) Do you have any morning rituals?

I tend to stare at the ceiling and go through everything I need to get done. I get out of bed, making sure my right foot hits the floor first. It is very important to get up on the right foot. Wash my face, walk to the kitchen to make tea, and check my phone.

Q3) What music did you choose to listen to today?

None. I don't listen to music. But when I need to dance, anything with a beat will do. I do love the R&B music from the manic 90s.

 Q4) What was the last thing that made you happy last time? 

Realizing that we were all in this mess together and learning that we should not care about things that we cannot control. 

Q5) Where is the best place you've travelled to and why?

 It would depend on what we were after.

Food: Peru. Best gastronomy I have tried, even better than the Japanese one.

Beaches: El Nido, Palawan. A little Island protected by Unesco with clear water and beaches that go on for miles.

Landscapes: Namibia. In the South of Africa, the country offers a diverse number of landscapes out of this world.

Q6) What's your current obsession?

Throuples. I am fascinated about the dynamic, and of course, by the idea of having 2 men to myself. I think, ironically, that having multiple partners brings a certain balance. You can count on more people, as well as have more opinions on a matter. You are a team facing the challenges of life. The same way a person may fall in love with multiple people during the course of their existence, who is to say that we cannot fall in love with multiple people at the same time? Polygamy is a way of life in many cultures, it’s a shame that the occidental countries see it as something abnormal. The questions we should ask ourselves, is: what is normal? And who the hell are we to establish what is outside the norm?

Q7) Who would be your ideal dinner guest and why?

'Meryl Streep’ 

I have been following her career forever. She is an inspiration and someone who we can all learn a lot from.

Q8) What is your ideal holiday? 

I don't mind the where, as far as there is time to learn the culture of the place, time to do some activities like hiking and diving, and time to just chill on the beach. I guess any country like Australia, Japan, Greece, Argentina and more are all perfect vacation spots.

 Q9) What life skills are rarely taught but extremely useful?

How to navigate life, we learn a ton about History, Geography, Math’s... but they never teach us how to cope. I guess our parents do their best, but in the end, I think it is up to us to learn as we go. We need to be challenged and fight for what we want. It is up to the individual to learn how to deal with it themselves. A person is the only one aware of their own limits and desires.

Q10) One word to describe yourself?

‘Quirky’ - I consider myself as someone that loves control, but I also say some random things or act awkwardly all the time.

 11) Which question do you want to ask the next person?

When do you think we will be able to party again?
