You're all right in my books :)
***Currently travelling*** All about me...hmmm...putting me on the spot there. I am from Ireland, I am 30 and studying how to me the best darn Cearúil I can be.
I write a lot and have released two books. One is called Bedtime Stories for Grown Ups and mixes humour, fairy tales and modern living. It is a short story collection. If you want a free copy then follow the link https://gumroad.com/l/JpTMy/1#
The second book is an educational textbook for secondary school students in Ireland. I wrote it so I could help young people better understand and manage the transition out of school into the wider world.
I am currently considering the advantages and disadvantages of political service. Hopefully that won't immediately put you off me ;) Bring on the fun and thoughtful train I got me a ticket to ride.
Such is life
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I let people know about hospitality exchange websites when I get a feeling it would be their sort of thing. I'm travelling through Iran and the Caucasus and hoping to meet people that way.
Couched in Chicago, thanks Jimmy, thanks Paul, couched in Mexico thank you Liz, couched in El Salvador thanks Amado. Couched with Brittany the whole way through, thank you Brittany. We did a road trip from Toronto to Costa Rica, good times. Had ourselves a band and 13 students over as well as smaller groups. Since returning to Ireland I have moved into a couchsurfing house so we have had a good few pass through here since June 2011. Had a great time being hosted in Portugal in last year too. Let's see what future brings :)
Politics and current affairs, reading, smiling, jumping. Being creative in my walking style, dancing, having a really good hearty laugh (tears optional). People interest me immensely particularly the ones that love who they are, their love is infectious.
Music, Movies, and Books
Aldous Huxley, Gore Vidal, George Orwell, Kurt Vonnegut do me just fine. Edith Wharton and John Galsworthy are good writers. Malcolm X is a fantastic movie but his book is better and his life inspirational and sadly misunderstood, Air, The Doors, Pink Floyd, throw in some Billie Holiday, Rage against the Machine too, don't forget the Kinks and presently Dead Prez, Queen, Easy star all stars, Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and Public Enemy again. More often than not I am listening to singles rather than whole albums.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Been lucky so far so I can't pick one, too hard.
Teach, Learn, Share
You are who you are, because you made yourself that way, if you don't like it you can change it. Never fear your potential, never bury it in the sand.
I have plenty of love for history and for dissecting it. I am more of a brain food person but want to learn with my hands and body so something more practical would be welcome (bicycle repair, knitting, maybe breathing exercises or the likes, I will give it all a go and see what sticks).
If you know anything about marketing books let me know. I have one or two finished that need attention :)
