About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I don't want to survive life. I want to live it.

ABOUT ME

Hmmm well, what can I say? I have decided to live in Istanbul for awhile... I am a typical Sagittarius. Bit of a dork. Bit of a nerd. I try to live life to the fullest. Strong urge to explore, strongly idealistic nature. I am a free-spirited, open minded person with a generous attitude towards life. Ambitious, loyal and kind. I'm usually pretty straightforward and I don't ever mean to be rude, but I am bluntly honest so sometimes it comes across that way... I can be unpredictable half of the time, studious one day and crazy-wild the next.

I am generally a leader, not a follower, but I tend to go with the flow. I try not to let my own fears and self consciousness stand in my way of doing what I want to do.

I am a great listener and always there for my friends and you will find I will treat you the way you treat me.

I love hanging with the guys and playing video games, baseball, kickball, volleyball or just going on adventures and walks outside. I love, love sushi. I pretty much will never turn down sushi...haha

I love fast cars, but particularly old muscle cars built tough. I love the smell of the race track and going to see the trailer races back home. I'm pretty sure it's because I am slightly a redneck at heart ;) Thanks dad.

I'm bad with history and dates, but I love to learn things and see places. Especially old historical places with a lot of character that just makes you wonder what happened there hundreds of years ago.

I might be scared, but I'm brave. I don't let my fears stop me. I can do anything! Or I will die trying.

PHILOSOPHY

Live life to the fullest. You only live once. Theres so much to see and so little time.

If you love somebody, let them go. If they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Interests

I really have an interest in anything and everything. Reading, writing, dancing, music (I have a guitar back home, but I wasn't very good at self teaching too much), art (again, any kind of art. I love looking at different graffiti) and of course photography :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Some people would say saving a life is an amazing thing to do, but really...wouldn't you just do the natural thing? You don't think you just react and trust your gut. Thats all I did and it allowed a man a little more time on this earth and I will never forget him.

28.04.2011 My first plane ride was to Istanbul summer of 2011 and here I am again this summer (2012). I am finally getting out there and seeing the world one step at a time and meeting awesome new people.

28.06.2012 I also spent some time in Greece this summer and met some amazing people I hope to see again! My dream is to come back to Thassos Island when I'm not working to really enjoy the sites. The food and the views are amazing! <3

28.10.2012 Hot air balloon at sunrise in Goreme. Rock climbing around Kapadokya and meeting great people in Mustafa Pasa ;) Also, saw Safran Bolu

28.08.2014 First domestic flight to Seattle Washington to visit my friend Emily :)

Every day life brings a new adventure and I'm just along for the ride.

Teach, Learn, Share

There are many things I wish to learn. Guitar, chess, scuba diving, sky diving, surf, different types of dance, to drive a motorcycle, drive a race car, the workings under the hood of a car, home remedies, graffiti, my nikon camera, learning to accept myself and be more positive! I could go on, but these are just some things that I can think of right now :-P

Oh, and I want to learn how to whistle REALLY loud haha
