I want to friend the entire human race
I'm a 28 year-old writer and hipster theologian preparing to start my graduate studies next year. I'm a consummate conversationalist and debater, an enormous Trekkie and general geek/dweeb, and hopefully a pretty solid houseguest. I'm engaged to a wonderful girl I'll be marrying in Fall 2013, and though I've never been outside the country, I've visited probably 36 states.
I'm a Christian Anarchist, a pseudo-pacifist, politically indefinable. I believe in human dignity and the common good.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've never done this before, so that remains to be seen.
I'm a comic book writer, hipster theologian, and an amateur historian with a passion for the revolutionary era and the Early United States. I'm Catholic and very well versed in it, but I want to stress I maintain strong friendships with people of a variety of religious persuasions.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When I was a kid, I would take these long, two-week trips with my dad in his 18-wheeler. I've been all over the country a dozen times, but nothing ever quite struck me so hard as walking through the freightcarrier parking lot of a truck stop one night and realizing that I was in a nomadic city, centered on the station itself. There, at all hours, it would be full to its limits with tired middle-aged men looking for a bite to eat and the space to rest, and everyone the next morning would be on their way. But while they were there, it was a fraternity. There was no backbiting, no politics. Probably because there was no *investment* in it. But sometimes you'd make a friend, and run into him halfway across the country, as both of you headed down the interstate in opposite directions, each of you reaching out into the aether of the citizens' band. That reconnection was brief, precious, and never to be repeated.
