Go places, meet people, learn what I can
I'm a full time student with occasional part-time jobs. I've got a B.A. in Anthropology and German, A.A.s in Spanish, Health Sciences and Natural Sciences, and am working toward a credential to teach high school science.
I am a nerd and a recreational medievalist. I love languages and trying to wrap my mind around new ones. I'm also a huge bookworm. I'm not straight. Politically, I'm left-leaning by American standards and fairly centrist by northern/western European ones.
Explore, share, learn as much as possible. Do right by others. I don't really have a catchy phrase to sum it up.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've never hosted so far (when I have had a couch available, I haven't gotten requests), but would like to. At the very least, I'm happy to show a surfer around my area, have a picnic or give some tips if my couch isn't available. I've surfed on several occasions.
So far, I have surfed some. It has always been really great to meet hosts! I feel like I get a much better view of a city that way than just staying at a hostel. It's also great to stay up and talk philosophy, politics, or music and see how views differ between our homes.
Art and photography, languages, literature, travel and adventure, ukulele, and nature.

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Blackbook, Destry Rides again, Der Blaue Engel (and anything else with Marlene Dietrich), Das Leben Der Anderen, But I'm a Cheerleader, Lola, La Vie en Rose, the original Star Wars trilogy, and anything off-beat
Music: Eclectic - I like individual musicians more than I like genres.
Books: Stephen King, Bill Bryson, Stephen Pinker, biographies, or (nearly) anything else... Currently reading: "Lea" by Pascal Mercier and "Lili Marleen: a song that moved the world."
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
On the island of Inis Mór, there are steep, wave-sculpted cliffs facing the Atlantic Ocean. Little streams trickle up to the edge, but the strong winds blow the water back up into a sort of an inverted waterfall. I could have watched it for hours.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can cook Lebanese food and I can sew/embroider a bit. I can also curse profusely in American Sign Language.I can draw pretty well and might draw something for you if you want.
