About Me


My mission is to live my life to its full potential and not let timidity or the unknown hold me back!


I am a writer, reader, dreamer, adventurer. I make friends easily, call everyone "hon" and daydream a lot. I adore road trips! I have training as an archaeologist and I'm interested in pursuing a Master's degree in either Archaeology or History. But first I want to travel!


I recognize that life is both precious and short and that I want to live up to my potentials and explore my interests as much as possible. I try to live my life by the Serenity prayer: God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things that I can and the Wisdom to know the difference. I know that everyone I meet has something to teach me and I wish to stay humble and open-minded so I can learn from them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am a verified member of CouchSurfing. I want to participate more by meeting others through the website by hosting Surfers and staying with other members in my travels.


I have not had the opportunity to Couch Surf yet. :(


I love camping, hiking, biking and just being outdoors. I love books and libraries, history and museums, music (I listen to all genres!), cooking, baseball and yoga.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite authors include J.R.R. Tolkien, Yukio Mishima, Neil Gaiman and Mercedes Lackey (I have many others).

I am currently fascinated by the movies of Takashi Miike, Akira Kurosawa and Stanley Kubrick.

I listen to all musical genres but right now a lot of country (Toby Keith) and opera (especially Wagner). But I also love jazz, cajun, soul, classic rock, folk and "gothic" metal.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just recently I camped at the Salton Sea in southern California with my boyfriend. The man-made sea is subject to massive fish die-outs which means the shore is covered in dead fish. I was walking on the beach when I realized the dune I was standing on was actually millions and millions of tiny fish bones! I watched the sun come up and the flocks of birds on the water and knew this place was like nowhere else on Earth!
