Join Couchsurfing to see Amanda’s full profile. It’s free!
Experience the historic and local culture of as many places as possible, and paint them too!
I'm cool and collective, getting the job done right-kind of person formally, but tend to get silly and have a great time in a non-alcoholic, new experience kind of way once I've connected with friends.
Something of an introvert in that I don't really talk unless spoken to/mean to say something; I believe real communication is listening to learn about each other.
There is no good/evil right/wrong outside of our individual perception, only your choice of emotions and the ever quest to satiate our curiosity to understand that.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Surfing/hiking/wildlife watching in Tofino, Vancouver Island isn't just an amazing thing I've done, but an immensely amazing place that I come back to year after year. I've never felt more free, whole, and serene than I do there, and I'm an avid spiritualism seeker.
Teach, Learn, Share
Really my best card is art. I don't have a degree because there is no school that can set the career of an entrepreneur artist on the internet. I grew up with one of the more successful ones as a mother and with a knack for finding the right learning materials in books, magazines, and workshops. My specialties cater to fandom and fantasy communities with digital art made with a tablet.
Secondly, I have a thing for self development; the kind of stuff that innovates your perception. Here are a bunch of titles I recommend you look for if you want to improve your life. I don't swear by everything they stand for, but they did some pretty cool things for me: The Secret, 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Champions, Lost Language of God, Centerpoint - Holosync Technology.
I also study Feng Shui in books, my practice isn't professional, but it seems to work well enough. I can give my hosts energy flow advise about their floor plans.
Some things I hope to learn through couch surfing is Japanese language/historic culture, most everything of lesser known countries, new places rarely touched by man full of life and beauty, photography (how you make a business out of it), conservation, and eco living.
