Join Couchsurfing to see Aiko’s full profile. It’s free!
To read strangers like books. To crawl into another's skin and see out of their eyes. To make sure that my roommate doesn't have us host serial rapists.
I teach, do, eat, breathe and sleep hairstyling.
I go to church in a bar. [An actual christian church in an actual bar that serves alcohol...and I'm agnostic and don't drink.]
I'm seriously involved with mental health volunteering.
I'm never without a bar of chocolate.
I believe that the purpose of life is to love and to learn.
Connection is everything to me. That's why I love teaching so much. It's the purest form of communication. Not only does someone have to listen to you, they have to process and regurgitate the information in their own way. Disconnection and miscommunication is apparent and whittled down until the two or more of you are on the same page...in the same place...in the same moment.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I ask our houseguests a million questions and probably drive them crazy.
I have never [yet]. I have woken up to many a complete stranger passed out on my couch...confused in my half asleep state, I usually pee and go back to bed. [Pee in the bathroom, not on the stranger].
Hair designing and education.
Random inspiring strangers.
Things with history. I don't necessarily want to know about it. I just want to feel it.

The unexpected kindness of strangers.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you:
Anything about hair.
About sedating mentally unstable people with [well intended] manipulation.
How to make the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich ever.
I want to learn:
About what it's like to be you.
Everything that you know that I don't...which I imagine is a lot.
