About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to live and enjoy life. Explore possibilities and open my eyes to new experiences. Dance and laugh freely, see the beauty in the little things.

ABOUT ME

I look for the positive in every situation and am working on being less shy. I work a lot and I work hard, but play even harder. I've traveled alot, but only due to my family's military background. I would love to continue traveling the world and exploring every corner of it, and hopefully one day I will.

PHILOSOPHY

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving."
"Be kinder than necessary, everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
"When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

No real surfing experience. Crashed at friends' and family's places. I've always enjoyed it and want to continue surfing in the near future.

Interests

I love going to shows, not much of that in this area unfortunately. Video games is another huge part of my life, The Elder Scroll Games are my stomping grounds. Even though I like to relax with a game, movie or some tv, I definitely prefer physical activities. Longboarding is tons of fun, biking or just walking the local "nature trails" -that's what they call them- in the area. I also volunteer my time at the local hospital and animal shelter. I love animals, so that's my preference but I get much more from visiting patients who are so grateful for my time and interest. It's a humbling experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Alaska and British Columbia with my family recently. It was absolutely breathtaking scenery the entire trip! We went on a glacial trek across the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, AK which was a once in my lifetime experience. It was beautiful and inspiring. The best part of the whole trek was seeing a wolverine! I couldn't believe how lucky I was to be there amongst my family experiencing nature in one of its most amazing forms.
The second moment was in Seattle, WA. My younger brother and I went on a tour of historic Seattle and the underground remnants of the city, explaining how it was built on top of the burnt down original city. The history was fascinating and the tour was comical and kept everyone entertained, including my brother who's not usually interested in things like that. For me, it was just enjoyable seeing him actually get involved and interested in something with meaningful historic background. The tour was called The Underground Tour - http://www.undergroundtour.com/index.html check it out because we loved it :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my experiences. I can share my knowledge of certain recreational substances, but more so than that, I can give you a lecture for days about rpgs xD I'm not skilled in anything spectacular. My one redeeming factor that keeps me employed is my natural customer service skills, which translates to-I am a woman and I can manipulate. Ha.
What I would love to learn is how to be free and enjoy life. I want to break the chains of reform and society and just live my life the way I want to, unconcerned with other people's judgmental thoughts, looks, and snears about their jealousy as they see someone who took the route they were too afraid to. I don't want to be the jealous one. I want to be the one too free to care about everyone else.
