Feed the hungry, clothe the poor, save the whales, hug a few orphans, blah blah blah...
Friendly, a little quirky, always trying to do something new and cross things off my bucket list.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love it when my surfers offer a small gift to show gratitude for my hospitality. It can be helping to make dinner and wash dishes (even if you suck at cooking and hate cleaning), grabbing me a coffee (small, black), making a thank-you card or a bracelet, playing a song on your ukulele or your cello, putting on a magic show, mowing my lawn (yep, it's a push mower), helping me shovel my driveway (booo, winter), keeping me company on a drive to Chicago or to the East Coast, taking my dog for a walk with me, anything, as long as there's something to show appreciation for a clean room and a friendly welcome. Can you tell those are all things guests have done for/with me? God it's a wonderful world.
Also, when I get a request that lets me know you've read my profile it makes me feel special and *gosh* who doesn't like to feel special? That way I know we're on the same page.
The Couchsurfing Philosophy: I will offer you my couch free, along with the company of my friends and a tour of my favourite spots in my city. In return, you will give of yourself. In this way, we will be friends, if only for a day or two.
God, that's a tough one. I end up meeting a lot of (other) misfits and that makes things interesting. Learning from other peoples life experience helps me to not overreact to small setbacks.
I spend my time walking my dog, petting my cat, and planning my next trip.

Teach, Learn, Share
I have a love for learning things about other places and people. I might pick you apart with questions and also ask for some good swear words if you speak another language.
