About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world!!!

ABOUT ME

I'm a very social person. I love to be a part of big crowds! Travel is my #1 passion! Other cultures fascinate me and the idea of meeting new people excites me! I'm all about having a good time, I think life is WAY too short to just sit around working all the time, though that's not to say I'm lazy! I'm working towards my Bachelors in elementary education and masters in special education. I love the nightlife but I like the outdoors and any physical activity. I love my friends and can't wait to meet more here!!!!

PHILOSOPHY

To look back on my life and say I took advantage of what little time I was here. I want to see everything this life has to show me. I'm not motivated by money as much as I am with the life experiences I can have by making it. I want to be old as hell and say damn what a life!!!

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm very new to couchsurfing, though I first stated this page a few years ago, I only just now had the desire to try it out. Unfortunately I live in the dorms at Haskell University and cannot host anyone for now but I would LOVE to have a drink with anyone in town. I'm just wanting me meet new people and learn their culture and share a bit of mine!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I've been hosted once by a wonder women in Dublin who was very gracious and have rung in the new year both in Paris and Prague with a ton of great CS'ers! I've had nothing but great things to say about the people on CS and can't wait to do more!

Interests

Soccer is my sport. I've played since I was 4. Music is important to me. I love social events and hang out with friends as well as meeting new people. I'm involved in several activities in Lawrence Kansas and back in Fort Worth Texas where I am originally from. I work with the Douglas County Special Olympics team here in Lawrence. I also work with the West Side Animal League in Fort Worth Texas when I can make it out that way. I consider myself an athlete and even a sport I'm not familiar with I think I can play if I get the right teacher!

Music, Movies & Books

I like to read when I'm on those plane rides but I'm also a published writer myself working on my first full novel!!!!!! I love a wide variety of movies. I'm everywhere with my music too from Friendly Fires, Bloc Party, Doves, Men Women & Children to Kanye, Luda, and Andre 3000. Sprinkle in some David Bowie, Howie Day, Dashboard and Death Cab and I'm good! Basically Indie rock and Electronic dance music are my go to genres though.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

From Rhianna and Pharrell's private after parties in Vegas to skydiving in Houston to randomly hosting a NYE party in Prague for 10 or so Couch Surfers, I have no idea what would be the most amazing but I am truly grateful for everything I've been able to do so far!!!!

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Nicaragua, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State
