I'm a pretty easygoing person. I work to travel. I think the only real way to see a place is with the people who live there. I love reading and the snow and the ocean. Im very political. Im spontaneous and usually down for anything. I can't party every night, but I can party. My heroes are Malcolm X, George Orwell, John Dewey and Rachel Corrie. Im a Middle East studies student, and I've mostly only traveled to that region, but I really am down to go anywhere.
I love the idea of couchsurfing because it requires an amount of trust so rarely found even among people who know each other. Trust is essential for community, and community is essential for democracy.
Its a beautiful thing.
Way too complicated to put down here
