About Me


Mission is to learn Spanish and to eat som fried rice.


Well, I am Colleen, I really love travelling, really- to wake up in a new place and not know where you will sleep that night, to put your trust in people you dont know, to try and fail, to eat mountains of food one day and not have any time or sometimes money to eat the next- well i get a kick out of those kind of things.

I want to learn from people it can be from books, films, or other resouces-but i like learning from people best- stays with you the longest.

I consider myself very resourseful- rarely is there a problem or a situation that i would deem hopeless... pretty much there is always a solution.

lo que hay.

I am a person who cooks, dances, answers questions with occasionally inappropriate brutal honesty, hitch hikes, experiments, and feels socially akward much of the time, and loves the faults of humans- the liars, cheaters, over confident, and people who say the wrong thing at the wrong time have a special place in my heart.

okay that is quite enough.

Try to thrive in uncomfortable situations. and laugh.

Music, Movies, and Books

For movies i love documentaries. about anything that i can feel i learn about.
Music, for me, is for listening to and dancing to, not talking about...
and books. poisonwood bible, anything by Tony Morrison, Keroack and Tom Robbins and Cannary Row. I love satire.
