About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel as much as possible and meet new people!

ABOUT ME

I am country girl, and generally a happy person. I enjoy traveling, whether it's in around my hometown, throughout the US or to different countries. People are so interesting, and it's exciting to meet new friends in foreign destinations. I love eating pizza and going to the movies.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to laugh and joke around.
A good friend is someone who can tease me and I'm laughing with them.
A very good friend is someone who I can enter their house without knocking and hang out with their parents or grandparents comfortably.
I crave summer nights when the sun doesn't set until 10pm and there is a warm breeze in the air and I can smell a bonfire.
I am happy to coincide with the lives of others wherever I am, and learning from them or learning about myself through interacting with them.
My biggest goal in life as of right now is to continue jumping off bridges and rocks into bodies of water and soaking in as much sunshine as possible, while figuring out just who has the best pizza.
