About Me

I am introverted and have decided to change. Or die in the attempt. I am basically a good person even if I am boring.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have always avoided travel and preferred my comfort zone. In an effort to change myself, I am removing excuses not to travel and this is one of my steps. I just received a shiny new unused passport and now I have joined couchsurfing. Scouting insane travel deals is next.

Interests

  • reading
  • being introverted

Music, Movies, and Books

I like 90s alternative rock and current top 40. Books, I enjoy espionage, action, thrillers, historical fiction. Movies, sci-fi and action. My favorite scene ever is Pacino and DeNiro in the restaurant in Heat. Tv, I will admit to liking Friends. I love Hogan's Heroes, Cheers, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Firefly, Babylon5, Deep Space 9, Monk, Burn Notice.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I ever did was pay off all my debt except student loans. It really makes you feel free. Then you want to shed all contracts and obligations. Cell phones and gym memberships feel confining if you are debtfree. I CAN NOT recommend enough becoming debt free. The feeling of accomplishment will have you smiling for a long time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love learning beekeeping or indoor hydroponics. I can share how I became debt free, the steps I took. Basically willpower and sacrifice. The debt snowball method.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I sometimes have really great ideas.
