About Me

Hello, dear guest!

The photos of me in red was taken before a date before the world 🌎 experienced COVID, , when I worked cardio at least 3 times a week for at least an hour … straight each time , Bohemian Rhapsody first came out. Since then, I’ve shaved all my hair off, Colored it purple , many colors of blue and at once, and it’s growing back slowly. I’ve also. moved
three times since then.

Excited to keep it short and sweet - a warm welcome to my cozy two-bedroom apartment in lively Buckhead, Atlanta! 🌟 I’m a laid-back host, and if you’re a fellow female traveler, that’s a plus – navigating hosting is just a breeze. Meet Johnny Depp, my friendly British black Labrador, who’ll greet you with enthusiastic barks at the door. He’s a Labrador, so rest assured, it’s all about making friends!

Now, here’s the scoop: I’m a veggie enthusiast 🥗, though not a strict vegan 🌱. No worries, we’re surrounded by fantastic dining options in Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta. Cooking’s not my forte, but hey, a good old PB&J sandwich works wonders. Feel free to whip up something tasty, order in, or explore the nearby culinary gems like Virginia Highlands, Decatur, Ponce City Market, and The Varsity. It’s all about savoring the flavors and enjoying your time here!
Please bring your own bath towel. I supply shampoo & conditioners.

Can’t wait to welcome you to my little corner of happiness! 🏡✨

The one thing I ask is that when you apply to stay here, please will you let me know how you will leave your bedroom and the bathroom? All that information is clearly written in here. I really appreciate your suppor

That’s my short profile for people who have couch surfed before & who have hosting experience. Or who have just hosting experience.
Well, bless your heart! After your perusing my profile, I’m simply delighted to chat about your favorite dog. Mine was part Angel, part unicorn 🦄, part rainbow 🌈. She embodied a wonderful perfect humility in her graceful Love. Please Send me the sentence I wrote about her and remind me of those intriguing 7 sins. No need to break a sweat, sugar – I’m here to make it a breeze for you from then on. Ain’t no tooth-pulling required, promise! Let’s dive right in and have ourselves a good ol’ time discussing the finer things in life. 🌟😊🍑 COVID shots. Lol. If at all possible, can you bring your covid shot paper with you or take a photo of it for my health? I still have not had the most recent shot. Maybe we can go get that together. . . What could be more fun? Let’s try and make sure to become couchsurfing friends. I would like to add more of you to my friend section and need help remembering to do that. Can you help me there?
Embrace each day with enthusiasm and a sense of purpose, for your actions today shape the future you desire. Your potential is boundless, and the choices you make can create a world of positive impact. Believe in yourself and your ability to make a difference, because you are capable of achieving greatness.
I want to extend a heartfelt 🌈 welcome to my slowly getting better ❤️‍🩹 as extra items are put in storage or thrown away or given to you or donated to Goodwill…apartment, where I’m genuinely thrilled to have you as my guest. Welcome to my cozy haven, where your time is about to become an extraordinary experience! I couldn’t be more thrilled to have you as my guest. Let’s dive right in and ensure your stay is nothing short of fantastic. Your presence means a lot to me, and I’m looking forward to creating a memorable and positive experience during your stay.
Your enthusiasm and rational approach to this journey are commendable. Remember, you’re not just staying somewhere; you’re creating meaningful connections. I’m here to support you every step of the way, making sure your stay is as remarkable as you are. Please take a photo of yourself in Atlanta, Ga. & put at least one Atlanta, GA photo in your collection of photos for all to see when you apply to stay at your next CS location 🏠🏡🏘️🏚️🏬🏢🕍!. Seeing many pictures of a Couch Surfer with other people and also alone brightens up a profile.

Hosting and sharing feedback is a wonderful labor of love. For surfers, it’s essential to dive into profiles with care. 🏄‍♂️🏄‍♀️ I’ve dedicated countless hours ⏰ to create resources for exploring Atlanta. My aim is not just to inform, but to enlighten and transport Couch Surfers to the heart of Couchsurfing through this profile. 🌟 It’s a beautiful two-way street of respect and reciprocity, where hosts generously open their doors, expecting surfers to embrace the Couchsurfing values with open arms. 🤗🏡💫

Couchsurfing is like the Swiss Army knife of social experiences - it’s more than just a budget-saver, and definitely not a matchmaking app (no swiping here!). It’s a magical portal to connect with people who are brimming with positivity, honesty, and captivating ideas. Sure, it can offer you a comfy spot to catch some Z’s, whether it’s on a cozy couch, a plush bed, or even a dry, temperature-just-right floor - we’re all about comfort here!

But wait, there’s more! Couchsurfing is not just a place to wash off the day’s adventures in a nice bath (rubber duckies included). It’s not merely a pit stop for refueling your culinary tanks or hitching a ride to your next destination. Let’s be crystal clear - Couchsurfing isn’t some faceless Airbnb clone.

You might discover all these handy perks while couchsurfing, but the real magic lies beneath the surface. It’s about forming connections that go deeper than the cozy cushions. It’s about bonding with fellow travelers who, like you, are on a quest for genuine, meaningful experiences.

Now, about those short videos - after you’ve had your popcorn and video binge, do share with me the nuggets of wisdom you’ve picked up! Because in the world of Couchsurfing, learning is just as important as laughing, and every story shared is a thread in the tapestry of this unique and wonderful adventure. 🌟🛋️🌍🏄‍♂️🏄‍♀️

I have a passion for hosting and fostering positive Couchsurfing experiences. I desire for everyone to have a memorable and enjoyable time in Atlanta is commendable. Let’s all remember that while perfection may be elusive, the spirit of Couchsurfing thrives in the bonds we create and the shared experiences we cherish. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, and may happiness and good wishes abound for all who cross one another’s path..

I go by my middle name, Ashley, which holds a special connection to mead’s mom- Dorothy Ashley Lord.. As we embark on this journey together, I’m curious to learn about you and your name. Is it a family name? Does it carry a meaningful story behind it? Let’s get to know each other. When we meet, feel free to tell me anything you’d like me to know about you. And set the stage for an unforgettable stay with anyone with some sensible tips:

⭐️ BEGIN YOUR VISIT AWARE THAT YOU WILL BE MOST KIND IF YOU LEAVE THE SPACE THAT YOUR HOST GIVES YOU BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT (ask about re-making a bed with new sheet’s, you use, throwing the sheets you used in the washer, vacuuming the floor, dusting, …) Take a moment to truly get to know your potential hosts, once you are in their space. Think of it as embarking on a friendship, not just finding a place to crash. The more you understand each other, the more rewarding your stay will be. 🐕‍🦺

⭐️ Transparency is our guiding star. A picture paints a thousand words, so make sure your profile has at least six photos. Share your personality visually!

⭐️ Certainly, let’s present this information objectively, positively, and persuasively:

⭐️ When it comes to your Couchsurfing experience, peace of mind is priceless. That’s why we encourage you to consider verifying your profile to the fullest extent possible. For just $15 a month, this small investment is your key to enhanced safety and trust.

Think about it – $15, the cost of a few cups of coffee, offers you invaluable peace of mind when entering someone’s personal space. It’s a real value proposition, considering the trust and security it brings to your journey. Can you put a price on feeling comfortable and secure during your stay in someone’s home?

Your safety and the trust of your host are paramount, and this investment ensures both. So, why not take that extra step towards a worry-free and enjoyable Couchsurfing experience? Your peace of mind is worth every penny.

Make the wise choice today, and invest in your comfort and security for a seamless and enjoyable stay with your host. You can contribute to helping the entire community.

⭐️ Building a two-way street of trust is crucial. If you haven’t hosted before, don’t worry. Just be open about your experience when reaching out to potential hosts. Honesty is the best policy.

⭐️ Take a moment to read through the profiles of potential hosts thoroughly. Remember, this isn’t an Airbnb; you’re entering someone’s home, and it’s a unique opportunity to connect.

⭐️ Show your appreciation by being an excellent guest. Offer to help with chores, keep your space tidy, and embrace the experience wholeheartedly. It’s a win-win situation.

Now, let’s dive into the treasure trove of short clips I’ve prepared for you below. These gems contain practical insights to enhance your Couchsurfing adventure.

With immense positivity and a dash of logic,
Ashley🐕‍🦺and Johnny Depp in memory of Love🐕‍🦺

Here are a few friendly suggestions to make your visit at any host’s home more enjoyable:

Before diving into your couchsurfing adventure, I encourage you to watch the short clips I’ve provided below. They contain valuable tips and insights that can enhance your overall experience. If you’ve only stayed at peoples homes or just hosted a few nights, I’ll be asking you to make sure you have watched and enjoyed each short episode. It’s only fair. This is not an air B-N-B.

Once again, I’m genuinely excited to host you and make your stay here as enjoyable as possible. Let’s embark on this adventure together!

Warm regards,
Ashley🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺

Please show me that you know the 7 deadly sins😇 by writing them when you request to stay with me.

LODGING:
I prefer people who arrive via airplane ✈️. Please let me know your flight schedule and arrive at the airport (international) by 7:00 🕖 and within the US no no later than 8:00 🕗 . I like you to get Lyft or 🚖 Taxi 🚕 to my home. I live at The CoHo apartments, Colonial Homes Drive, Atlanta GEORGIA 30309 . When I accept you to stay with me, I’ll let you know my exact apartment and the building number. I really prefer hosting females.

If you take MARTA , you will hold your wallet tight and keep it on you the whole time you on MARTA or know exactly where it is. I keep it hidden. And keep your eye on it. go to the South Terminal (I’m pretty sure it’s South….you know you need to read signs and ask Airport employees where MARTA is, to double check me) and you will see a section of the airport at the main building where you can buy breeze cards. Please please tell a MARTA employee about your Atlanta stay, ask a MARTA employee for guidance as to what card to get and how to get it. One is paper in my plastic. The plastic one can be refilled.

Go up the escalator. There will be 2 Trains 🚊. Take a MARTA train 🚊 past 5 Points to the Arts Center Station. Art center station is in Midtown. You may see homeless people walking around. They normally will not hurt you. It’s a fairly safe area. I’m not scared when I’m there at all. Still, hold your wallet, tight or make sure you know exactly where it is.

The MARTA employees are consistently positive and good. MARTA employees will always be there to help you out. Feel free to ask them for questions.

Oh, once you are off the train, walk to the area for buses. It’s on one side of the Marta building. Take the 🍑 Peach. I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s called. I believe it’s Marta bus #110. Ask the Marta drivers of the buses 🚌 which bus 🚌 goes down Peachtree Street past Piedmont Hospital 🏥 and past the Shephard Center to Colonial Homes Drive, near Benihana, right at Emory At Peachtree Hills.

Let your Marta bus 🚌 Driver know that you get off at Colonial Homes Drive, below all the construction of Piedmont Hospital 🏥 and Shepherd Center at the bottom of the hill by the expensive restaurant called Houston’s and right at a Emory building. You can let them know that it’s after Piedmont hospital and after the shephard Center from the 110 🚌 . Ask for to to remember which spot this is when you drive up to it.

The Fresh Market, Benihana, Enterprise car rental, Bradford on Peachtree, and MEZZO and a BP gas ⛽️ station are on the street across from Colonial Homes Drive. On the Side of Colonial Homes Drive you will see Piedmont Hospital, The Shepherd Center, Brookwood Square with Urgent Care & 🌻 Cafe Sunflower 🌻 , Avita, pharmacy, BOYD, beauty, here, USA, twist, Buckhead, custom frames, lash, US Marines, third, Eye 👁️ tribe, Med, Health. Next you will see a brown building with green in front called Houston’s HOUSTONS with red plants in front of the green plants. You will see a sign on the left that says Emory At Peachtree Hills. Be ready to get off at the station or this stop. This is Colonial Homes Drive. Please thank the driver of the Marta bus. Their jobs are not anything but hard and difficult. Your walk down the hill.

From the stop, just walk all the way down the street to my apartment. You will see a large. COHO sign in front of a nuisance office.. (Once you and I make contact over Couchsurfing, I will let you know which one it is. You can tell your friends family that you are staying in an area in Atlanta called Buckhead.

ABOUT YOUR STAY:

🛌 remember to make time in the visit at the end to wash the sheets, for the next couch surfing 🏄‍♀️ person AND REMAKE THE BED 🛌 WITH CLEAN SHEETS for the next Couchsurfer.

🛌Did you check under the bed & vacuum the floor?
🛌Do you clean up after yourself in the bathroom, for example? :
🛌Did you use the toilet & tub 🛀 ? Is your hair still in the tub? Can you please clean your toothpaste & hair out of the sink and shower 🚿 ?
🛌Can you 🧼clean up 🧽 after your use of the 🧼 the toilet 🚽 , and straighten all around , …make the bed 🛏️ for the next couchsurfing person ?

This is not an an Airbnb. 3-4 nights is USA maximum number of nights


🧓Right now, I truly prefer to host females. It’s just a comfort thing because the 2 bedroom apartment is small.👩‍🎤👨🏾‍🌾🧚🏼‍♀️👧🏼👧🏽👩🏼‍🦰👳🏼👮🏾‍♂️🧑‍🎤👨‍🎓

If a male has a large number of people who he himself has already hosted, I’m much more likely to feel comfortable with him. 🌼🌸🌺🪻

For those of you who have never hosted and feel slightly uncomfortable with my statements, you are welcome to your feelings. Now start hosting and get back to me. It’s nothing personal. It’s just the way I operate as a human.🌼🌸🌺🪻

🌼🌸🌺🪻
Verizon , for example, needs better setting up and maybe someone can help with that? I don’t want to pay a steep fee to set it back up. My pictures on my walls need nails to be drilled into the wall with my new Milwaukee drill. I haven’t figured out how to keep the mail in the walls.. Can somebody help with that? I have small shelves to put up. Those require nails…🌼🌸🌺🪻🌹

I’m in an excellent area of Atlanta called Buckhead. We have just about all a person needs to spend every dollar bill in their wallet in half a day on excellent food and enjoyable entertainment. I like to live on the frugal side if and when possible. I grew up in this neighborhood & survived because of others who loved me.🌹🌷🌼🌸

Please look at my photos 📸 📷 to see photos me from n the past and present and my many friends and family and Couchsurfer’s since 2017. 🌼🌸🌷🌹

Hope you enjoyed the jokes .😊Too many profiles I am getting and seeing have way too few details . It only costs $15.00 for a year: Please verify yourself for me or logically tell me what 🛑 stops you from getting 🌹🌷🌼🌸

Look no further if you are female and looking for a place in Atlanta, Georgia Fulton County, Buckhead 30309 USA 🇺🇸. You have found an excellent place to stay as well as someone who is happy to host you. Just could you please do me the honor of reading my FULL profile? Pretty Please? 🌹🌷🍄🌺

Ukraine 🇺🇦 people are welcome 🙏 anytime. Ukraine 🇺🇦 people find a place to rest here. Ukraine 🇺🇦 children and families and babies.

Please elaborate on why you may not have references if you don’t. Maybe you work for an American family. and care for kids. I understand. Couchsurfing culture has definitely changed. On too many occasions, it’s my observation that too many people just use a bed As a free place to sleep. The more thorough an individual’s profile is and the more detailed work the person puts into the process, along with photo work, the more investment in couchsurfing a new person can show that he or she has. At least to me. Which is very good. I hope my profile explanation helps any persons new to couchsurfing.🌹🌷🌼🌸

I really prefer to have Couch Surfer‘s who Are female or who are a couple (together) or couchsurfing guests who have already surfed with me to stay at my place. If I accept males, I strongly prefer for him to have strong hosting experience.🪻🌷🌹🌺

1.). I really prefer Couch Surfer to Have a lot, at least 10 to 12, photos of themselves on their page. This is a very easy thing to do, right? Post photos of one self? Even selfies with a host or hostess, person being hosted, pet, any recent photos from a cell phone. Takes 5 seconds a photo. Right? Who doesn’t have 10 to 12 pictures?🌼🌺🪻🍄

2,) I really authentically fill out the questions asked by the Couchsurfing where it asks the Couch Surfer questions about themselves on the Couchsurfing site. I expect the same from brand new surfers who don’t have references.

3.) I prefer to host somebody who already has hosted other Couch Surfer‘s so that they already know what it’s like to host other people. Is somebody who’s going to be using Couchsurfing for the culture of Couchsurfing it’s already involved with Couchsurfing and isn’t doing it for just a one time thing.

4.) I prefer to host Couch Surfer‘s who I’ve also been Couch Surfer‘s themselves.🍄🌹🌺🪻

5.) I prefer the Couch Surfer‘s offer someway that they can give back at the time of their couch surfers. Maybe they can do the dishes maybe they can vacuum the floor maybe they can help neaten up the house perhaps there’s someway that they can give back and they’re ready to give back and show gratitude for me hosting them.

6.) it is imperative for a Couch Surfer to have read my whole entire Novalea of a profile. If someone has not read my profile there is guarantee that they will not have a place to stay. Profile is something I work on continuously. I’ve had at least 70 parties staying at my places of living. I used to work really hard and Couchsurfing and making it a great place for people to come to. I am in a brand new apartment right now. It is all boxes now and I’m trying to get it sorted out.🍄🌺🌸🌼

7.). I prefer for my Couch Surfer‘s to bring their own towels and to bring their own toothpaste and to bring their own shampoo and bring their own food.
There are several places to eat across the street and up the hill from where I live. There’s a Publix down the road.

8.). The Marta bus comes right up the hill from me. The station 🚉 the midtowMidtownn station 🚉 the midtown arts Center station is the closest the art center station is probably the closest Marta station To the Colonial Homes Apartments where I live in ZIP Code 30309.🍄🪺🐾🌹

9.)You have to have patience if you’re gonna stay with me. Just to let you know. I precious I process things kind of slowly..
I have a brand new apartment. It’s small. It’s two bedroom. It’s brand new. I haven’t had time to write about it. It’s called Co Ho. Colonial Homes apartments. ZIP Code 30309.

10.). If you have been accepted to stay with me and you have dates arranged and you are on the way to stay with me, please ask for my phone number. Please call me and text me to tell me that you are in your journey to Atlanta if we have already set your 1-4 day visit up. Please make sure to make yourself important and. contact me the day before you arrive. Call me. Text me. Please make me aware that you will be staying with me. This helps me remember that someone will be staying at my place. It helps me stay aware. I really appreciate it in advance. Namaste. 🪺🌹🌷🌸🪻

11.). I cannot support Stone Mountain KKK Statues and influence.🪻🌹.🐾🪺🍄🌷🌹🌸🌺🪻

Please make sure you tell me that you have your booster shot and you have your card to show you have your 3 COVID shots. This is imperative. 🪻🌺🌼🌸

https://www.youtube.com/redirect?event=video_description&redir_token=QUFFLUhqbjRvRWFUUFlkMVpoNzRKX0JlVzVOQlhrRWN6d3xBQ3Jtc0tsNlpHT25MQzBncFc1QlZsVk13cEJiakt2MVhaRlFabEJ1X0xIWjZLNnNhRnUtdWpCNEtsTnBycnRjNDQyQWFwTGFMZkJaalZZMElfTjdsa1BpcmJFeE00UWJVa3YtejJicGE4UW1ERXRxTGgtWTExbw&q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.couchsurfing.com

🐥No hitch hikers, homeless people or anyone who only set this account up only to stay at people’s homes. Instead of pay for an apartment . I volunteer at a school for children who have lived homeless lives and inspire art out of them, hopefully, I adore 🥰 the children. They mean the world to me. I need them.

If you need emergency 🦖help, I hope to find some contact numbers to list below, soon:

Also, Hosting hitch hikers just hasn’t worked out for me. Too much anxiety for me last time. I reacted to the two homeless people and was very uncomfortable and became triggered . i’m sorry. Big mistake.

Unless you are an au pair or have a real good reason you don’t host right now, I need you to be active in the community for couchSurfing already.

Speaking of cars 🚙 🚖🛻🚗 . If you are driving to my place. Please will you let me know the color of your car and your cars license plate number and your drivers license number. This is for safety reasons And also so I can get you a parking pass. And let me know the model of your car please.🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒

🏡 🏠 🏡 Also, wherever you stay, it’s always, always, good to cover your back and do all you can to arrange a back-up place to stay, just for yourself. I write this for anyone Couchsurfing, anytime and anyplace and anywhere. Just so you have a 100% success rate.🪼🦐🐠🐟🐬🐳🐋🦈🦭🐊🦎🦖🦕🐙🦑🐍🐢🦂🦋🦄🐝🐴🪱🐝🦄🐴🦑🐙🪼🐠

I know I use many words, I’m just very unskilled at being a minimalist. I’ve added the bottom paragraph about cleaning and organizing after thinking about how this place can be made better. Thank you for your efforts and your reading time, in advance. 🙏

Maybe the video will help people understand Couchsurfing.

My questions: have you hosted before? If you are an Au Pair I understand your situation and don’t worry about the rest of this paragraph. If you are not an Au Pair, please think 🤔 about my perspective. . . If you have hosted people before. what did you learn about hosting, from your experience? Can I add your information to my profile? If you are not opening your space to host others & you are asking to stay with me, Thank you.🦓🦍🦣🐘🦒🐫🐪🦏🦛🦘🦬🐃🐃🐂🐄🐑🐏🐖🐎🫏🦙🐐🦌🐕🐩🪶🐈‍⬛🐈🐕‍🦺🦮🪽🐓🦃🦤🦚🐇🕊️🦩🦢🪽🦝🦨🦡🦫🦦🦔🐿️🐀🐁🦝🐾🐉🐲🌵🎄🌱

VERY IMPORTANT Unless you are an Au Pair, With a few exceptions, people need to have already hosted at least a few times before I can consider hosting them. They need to be open to hosting and accepting guests and giving back to the CS community before I’m even going to consider being a host.

It’s also imperative that a person read the entire profile and look at photos and show me that they have really read and absorbed the information on this profile. I’ve worked way too long at hosting to not have someone already invested in their stay. You really need to be, unless you are an Au Pair, receiving guests, to show that you are going to give back ; as well as to take, with only a few instances as exceptions. This is what CS community is about, to me.

If I am able to accept you and to host you, please will you send me a text with your full name on it and your photo & the dates you’d like to be at my place, as well as requesting through the Couchsurfing app.. It just really helps if you have a text with exactly who is coming, when you will be here, how old you are, eccetera. No need for your zodiac lol 🤣. There’s a lot of security at this building. Thank you for understanding.

I have put a lot of time and effort into addressing just about any question a guest may have based upon my extensive experience as an admired and respected host. Please read this ENTIRE thing before you ask questions: the better someone communicates with me clearly, the easier it is for me; open communication and respect is essential. You can still ask any questions anytime when you are at my place. Please know that. Even now, you can ask any questions..

I do everything I can to make OUR Couchsurfing experience the best it can be. I will give you my WhatsApp number so we can communicate before your arrival and so you can remind me, please, of your arrival AT LEAST one day in advance. If I’m not here when you arrive, I’ll leave a key or the concierge will call me to let you in. Also, while you are staying with me, please give me a general idea of your daily schedule so I can plan accordingly, be aware of how to help you, & do I know that you are safe. Your safety is very important to me.

I have one big couch — only ONE — but people also sleep on the soft carpeted floor. Please, be sure and place a sheet over the couch before you lie down to go to sleep. This helps keep the couch neat and clean for the next person. Please be sure to leave the couch nice and beat each morning.🦙🦌🦌🐕🐩🦮🐕‍🦺🐈

I’ve slowed down a LOT in inviting people to stay at my place. If people help me clean up, tidy and organize . . I REALLY appreciate it, because tidy, organized, neat mindful role models help me with my living better.
Please be sure & ask for a clean bedsheet to place on the couch or mattress, in order to keep it clean for the next CS.

My dear dog, Love (see in photos), is no longer with us; sometimes I now pet sit other dogs. For example: one time I was taking care of a dog and it was over-protective of me, so I hired a professional trainer to assess the dog and then used the trainer's advice to find a new home for the dog.🦮🐕‍🦺🐈🐈‍⬛

That is the type of responsibility I assume and action I take.🐈🐈🐈🐕‍🦺

My apartment is not to organized, it’s pretty big and it’s a two bedroom apartment now. I apologize in advance if my places a bit messy when you arrive; it’s a constant work in progress.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️HOUSE 🏡 RULES⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
If I am able to host you, please can you ask me for my e-mail address so that you can e-mail me a few photos of you along with your complete name and the dates you will be staying with me and any other information you would like to share with me. 🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺

No in/out of my apartment after 9:30pm / 21:00. This is important. Though my self discipline is limited, I do not function well when I go to sleep much after 10pm. If you need access one night, just talk to me before. Things can be worked out.

Please show you and me respect about time. I really appreciate when people respect my boundaries and understand that I’m giving my apartment up as a service to help them. Talk to me about any time after 9:30 🕤 that you will be at the apartment. It’s a matter of simple courtesy, accountability, and respect. I don’t believe I’m asking too much.

You need to be clean 🧼 and to be taking care of yourself. No longer can I promise to provide soap, shampoo, bath 🛀 supplies. . . I used to supply many items. Please bring your own towels, shampoo, soap, hair dryer, wash cloth, razor, shaving 🪒 cream , sanitary napkins, toothpaste, toothbrush… 🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🦮🐐🐈

please DO NOT change the temperature in the apartment, please make sure you talk to me about it. Usually it’s not a big deal, it’s just that communication is a big deal. I just talk to me about the temperature of the apartment. I’ll probably want to change it just talk to me about it. One time someone really change the temperature and it really wasn’t right it was totally inconsiderate the way they did it. That’s why I have to

Publix grocery store is basically across the street, a four minute walk, away. I actually work at Publix at this time. If you want a job at a Publix, I’ll be more than happy to be honest with you about the reality of the work culture before you apply.

DO text & call me at least 2 days ahead of time to me know and remind that you are still coming. We can set up a meeting place ahead of Time.7333

DO make sure to clean up after yourself.
7
DO. bring your own food and bathing and hygiene essentials & any self-care items as well as laundry supplies you may use. I’ll have to charge you to use my washer & dryer. Please do not use them and just leave your clothes in the washer it dryer. DO be sure to remove each once they are done. DO be sure to ask to use them before you put your clothes in the washer., Publix and Kroger are nearby.🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺

DO put the toilet seat down after you use the toilet, make sure your hair is not in the shower 🚿 when you leave & DO leave the couch neatly and carefully put back together in the morning.

In exchange for my hosting you, I do ask that you initiate asking how you can also help me get this place cleaner🧽 and/or more organized, by vacuuming the rug & 🧹 sweeping the floors, by organizing the common area with me, for example .

There is always something you can do to give back & help improve the environment. (I used to live in a larger condo with lots of space & now I live here. . .) I really appreciate when people are willing to give back by helping out. If you don’t want to help out, if you are unwilling to give back, I kindly ask that you choose another place to stay instead of my place. 🐐🦌🐕🐩🐈‍⬛🐈🐕‍🦺🦮

Please even if I don’t see you, Please can you help out making this place look more together. More organized, cleaner. It’s a daily task for me. I wish I had the strength to just throw it all away. But I can’t. I’ve got to figure out what to do each day.🐈‍⬛🐈🐕‍🦺🦙🦤🦃🦮

NO smoking in the building, in my apartment, or on my balcony. I do not smoke (anything) and I do not tolerate second hand smoke.🦥🐾🦨🦫

Keep the couch put together nice and neat during-the day and your belongings in the space I provide, NOT left out on the couch and spread out the floor or around the apartment.🦦🦡🦨🦜🦥🐾

NO long showers (I’m environmentally conscious) and please check in with me first if I am home; I can not be late for work, doctor’s appointments, etc. because the only bathroom is occupied. Also, please try to keep the bathroom and shower neat and tidy after you use it (i.e. hair in the tub / sink drain.)

(It’s also greatly appreciated if/when a Couchsurfer surprises me with a pack of Charmin toilet paper 🧻 and/or puts effort into helping me organize some aspect of the apartment, I really appreciate help cleaning 🧼 this place, also🧹 & if I have a dog 🐕 Who I’m caring for, help walking the dog and taking it to go P.)

I am held responsible by the building management and my neighbors for the actions and behavior of my guests. I also care about others who live and work in my building. It’s important to be kind and respectful and considerate to the concierge. FYI, there are security cameras in and all around the building.

Wash your solve & dishes, of course.

Be aware that I do my own house cleaning before and after you leave. I’m not at all the most organized person, though I do honestly try.

I love it when people help me out with my house cleaning. That really really helps me.. You can really add to the environment by doing some cleaning or organizing... sometimes my home is super clean.. Most of the time it’s not organized real well. If you would feel better, you are more than welcome to help with maintenance in the apartment. You can really help me this way. I happily welcome your help in exchange for staying at my apartment for free. You are welcome to also look under my sinks & in the hall closet for cleaning 🧼 supplies that I already own & to use them, even if I’m not home. If you see some way that you believe you can make the apartment look better, by all means, cleaning 🧽 any extra dishes, dusting, being sure the tub is extra clean after you shower, polishing the wood table with furniture polish, using 409 to clean,.. . organize and/or straighten up any areas that you think 💭 need help. You can also be real helpful by extra vacuuming of the thick rug and or sweeping in 🧹 the apartment and on the porch. I really appreciate your help. Please write “Love was an incredible, priceless, amazing dog” in your request to stay with me so i know you’ve read my entire profile. . Your writing that will show me that you have actually read this short novella of a profile.

I’m about an hour from the Atlanta airport via MARTA public transportation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My friend in my apartment building introduced me to couch surfing and my older brother who used to live in a penthouse in San Francisco & go to Burning Man & loved couch 🌊 surf 🏄 ing.

I truly love ❤️ meeting positive people and animals. I like to give to people in Society. I like making new friends and spending time with new people and learning to cook new dishes and showing people around Atlanta and sharing my Atlanta knowledge of 44 years living in Atlanta.

Interests

****(who spoke in the Johnny Depp and Amber heard trial, I absolutely am on the thinking that, my dog ,Johnny Depp is the one who has the most honesty )

Music, Movies, and Books

🎶 I’m especially fond of hearing Queen, REM , U2 , Indigo Girls 💜Billy Joel 💜 John Denver Paul Mc Cartney I like almost all music from the 80’s on back, along with Flight of the Concords and some newer stuff. Please, feel free to educate and share your taste of music with me.. 🐕‍🦺I adore, going to concerts. I love going to concerts. I’m going to Queen when they come to Atlanta. I could not afford any ticket but the nose bleeds. Still, that’ll be 🫅🏻!!!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I’ve had the honor of living and being bonded , for 15 years, with an incredibly amazing soul in the form of a Black Labrador from a shelter in Texas who I named “Love.” I miss her dearly each night and day.🦝🦨🐾🐕‍🦺

I also survived The Cascade School in Whitmore, CA. And I have some positive memories. It was excruciatingly difficult emotionally and spiritually and mentally. I was one of the lucky ones.

I have extreme sadness and empathy for and compassion for and my heart 💜 and my total being goes out to the courageous, strong, loving , trusting people who were hit hard by the hard, frozen, powerful counselors . These counselors were trusted then, yet abused and misused their authority. I would like to put those manipulative ones on Death 💀 Row.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you that there is always hope.

I can share my dog with you. You’re going to fall in love. His name is Johnny Depp and people say he’s better looking than Johnny Depp. You can decide. He’s a British black lab and he was born January 11, 2022.

I can share my time with you sometimes, sometimes I can just share a couch and a space to sleep. It really depends on the day and the time, because sometimes I have time and sometimes I just don't.

I can share with you a second room in my home sometimes.

I can share with you a Home full of a lot of things I don’t need. Hopefully I can give you some of the things because I have way too many. They’re really getting the way of my function in life. I can’t figure out who to give them to and how to get rid of them. If you’re female or if you like female clothes, and I have not been able to purge all of them, I can probably find you some clothes that you would like and you can take with you on your journey.
