To learn and meet new people. I am not meant to be a turtle in a shell.
Me? This is always the awkward part of stuff like this. Ok, I've more of less been planning a trip to Europe since I was about 15 and in 2009 it became a reality. I look forward to meeting new people and being out of my element. New York is all I've ever really known, I love it but I also love the idea of taking nice long breaks from it. Oh yeah, I'm actually really psyched about hosting other people. I take pride in overfeeding my guests(how Dominican of me) and also on knowing way to much about NY food culture, especially of the vegetarian sort. Um...what else? Oh yeah, if all turns out well I'll begin my studies to become a nutritionist in the fall.
Make love, not war.

Teach, Learn, Share
