Initially I'm a little on the quiet side, but after getting to know someone I'll eventually come out of my shell. I ramble lots, and go on lots of tangents. I like to think I'm easy to get along with. I'm happy to do anything, or nothing at all, so long as I'm in good company. I'm not vegetarian at the moment, but I usually prefer eating that way. I'm agnostic, but I like learning about different religions. I love dancing in my car. I have the fashion sense of a little kid that rolled around in a rainbow.
A lot of things I believe in are cliché, but there's a reason some ideas became cliché, right? Experience as much of the world as much as possible. It's never too late to start something. Life's too short for regret. If there's something you don't like about your life, fix it if you can--if it's out of your control, it's not worth the energy to worry about it. As vastly different as we all seem, everyone is essentially alike. Most of all...there is a time/place for seriousness, occasionally, but I don't think you're living if you can't laugh at most everything, including (and especially) yourself.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Any travels I went on with my grandfather before he died were really great--it's now one of my life goals to do as much traveling as possible, to finish what he started.
My first road trip a few years ago with a friend, amazing. I need another road trip.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can try to teach English, and probably random pointless skills, haha.
I'd love to learn just about anything! Other languages, cooking, art-related things, sports, games, how to build stuff, whatever you know. haha
