About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I found out about Couchsurfing through my roommate, Kengo. He has been hosting guests at our house in Washington, DC. As a result I've been learning about hosting as well. It has been a great experience to learn about people from all over the world. There are a lot of problems going on all over the world, so I'm grateful that there are people out there that want to understand other people, parts of the worlds, and cultures. I hope that we can make a better world together.

I'm also traveling again. I'm studying Spanish and visiting Medellín, Colombia in August. I want to visit more countries that speak Spanish for now, and then other places later!

Encontré sobre couchsurfing de mi compañero de casa, Kengo. Él ha estado recibiendo invitados en nuestra casa en Washington, DC. Como resultado, he estado aprendiendo sobre couchsurfing también. Ha sido una gran experiencia conocer a personas de todo el mundo. Hay muchas problemas en todos los partes de mundo, así que estoy agradecida que hay personas allí que quieren a entender otras personas, otros partes de mundo, y culturas. Espero que podemos hacer un mejor mundo juntos.

También estoy viajando de nuevo. Estoy aprendiendo Español y estoy viajando a Medellín, Colombia en Agosto. ¡Quiero visitar mas paises que hablan Español por ahora, y despues otros lugares más tarde!

Music, Movies, and Books

There is too much music to list! It's hard for me to answer that question because I like all kinds of music. Rock 'n Roll, oldies, punk music, metal, folk music, pop music, etc. I've noticed that I'm most attracted to really fast, dramatic, and emotional music, like Panic! At the Disco. I also really like gothic music that is kind of haunting, like Hungry Lucy. I only really dislike country pop music. I'm from the deep south in the USA, so that music is everywhere there.

Movies: I love psychological thrillers and movies that make me think. I usually fall asleep during action movies unless there is some kind of sub-plot going on with the characters. I like some horror movies, but usually more supernatural things. I'm not a big fan of romantic comedy movies if they are predictable - if I can tell what will happen in the movie before I see it, I usually don't want to see it. My favorite movie lately is "Get Out" which is a bit of horror, psychological thriller, and is also about race in the United States. Great movie!

Books: I tend to read a lot of fantasy for fiction. Harry Potter series, but also "American Gods" and other books by Neil Gaiman. Also the "Iron Druid" series by Kevin Hearne.

For non-fiction, I like to read about social issues or psychology, or about paganism and mythology. Some that come to mind: "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel Van der Kolk. "The New Jim Crow" by Michelle Alexander. "Diet for a Hot Planet" by Anna Lappe.
