About Me

CURRENT MISSION:

To travel the world! (still)

ABOUT ME: (I keep editing this every year and it's crazy how little it changes, but how increasingly trite it sounds; the parenthetic comments are the recent revelations )

I love to dance and to learn. (That sounds so bromidic and cliche because it is, but it's also accurate.) I'm outgoing and I love to meet new people! I live for adventure. (Once again, that sounds hyperbolically enthusiastic, but it is also astonishingly true. )

I'd prefer people to challenge me rather than agree with me. I was raised by a lawyer and though I'm laid back and easy to get along with, at heart I enjoy confrontation; don't let it scare you though! (Oh so embarrasingly accurate, still)

PHILOSOPHY:

Live and let live. That's all there is to it. Don't worry; it's a waste of energy. (Ahh the easy aphorisms of youth!)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I spread the word about this awesome site and host people when possible.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've stayed with about twelve different hosts and Couchsurfing has made me some amazing friends that have transcended beyond travels and into quotidian rituals. I love this site and all my Couchsurfing friends and memories!

Interests

Meeting new and interesting people is always fun. I try and appreciate the little things in life. I spend most of my time either studying, partying, or traveling. (True.) Cooking has recently become a great pleasure of mine as well. I despise shopping (Ooh, I have become more materialistic; sad to admit that.) and love reading. Also, I'm trying to be more active, so if you're fit, feel free to drag me on arduous walks or to strenuous activities; I don't complain.

Music, Movies & Books

Movie: American Beauty
Book: Catcher in the Rye (childish, but still true(ish)) and Sula
Music: The Doors, Kendrick Lamar, Biggie (ehh), Lana

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watching the sunset in Ibiza was one of my favorite memories. Another one includes standing on the end of a dock during a thunderstorm in Southern Ontario, watching huge lightning bolts shatter the pitch black--so amazing! Driving around in Mumbai, Carnaval in Brazil, quadbiking in Mozambique, hitchhiking in Udaipur, New Years in Bahia Solano, dancing... Everywhere!

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can dance, well. I can cook, fairly well. I'm knowledgeable. I am resourceful, very.
