Join Couchsurfing to see Stephanie’s full profile. It’s free!
To travel the world and learn something new. I want to see everything there is to see about the world and how truly beautiful it is.
I am a friendly and outgoing person who enjoys traveling and wants to see the world. I love people and I dislike people at the same time, there are so many different kinds in this world and that's what makes the world an amazing place.
I tend to enjoy being alone, but I want to broaden my views on life and learn about different cultures as well as expand my own personal boundaries.
I'm a bit of a nerdy type, I love to read novels, manga, articles (all kinds), and text books (on different topics). I enjoy watching cartoons and anime (Japanese cartoons) as well as movies, documentaries, and regular television shows (from Scrubs to Little Britain), and I also love video games.
I am also an outdoorsy sort of girl, I love going hiking, snorkeling, rock climbing, bike riding, kite boarding and really anything that involves exploring and exercise.
Basically, what I'm looking for is: adventure, excitement and meeting new people while also learning something new every day.
A customer at a job I worked at had once said "Have fun, enjoy everything and never take life too seriously", it is something I have always believed and I agree with.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet more people, help people out when possible and to be able to travel more efficiently.
Currently I am residing with a family so I cannot host anyone, for that I apologize. If I am available I will hang out with couchsurfers until I leave Houston, but my schedule has become more tight as of late.

Music, Movies, and Books
Favorite movies: Fight Club, The Ledge, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Saw, Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Lion King, Eternal Sunshine for a Spotless Mind, Interview with a Vampire, White Oleander, Seven Psychopaths, and films by Miyazaki.
Television shows: Scrubs, Invader Zim, Boy Meets World, House, Dexter, Supernatural, BBC Sherlock, Once Upon a Time, American Horror Story, The Big Bang Theory and many many anime.
Music: I like all forms of music in different languages. I'm not too big on some country music and rap, both can annoy me under certain circumstances, but it's not all bad. I have a collection of music in: English, Korean, French, Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese, Persian, German and Russian. I would like to expand this.
Books: Anything by Chuck Palachinuk. I also enjoy Anne Rice and Stephen King. A couple of random books I enjoy are: Mysterious Skin, The Flowers in the Attic (series), Harry Potter (cliche, I know) and the Eragon series.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
+ I've worked and sailed through the Virgin Islands, it was a wonderful experience.
+ I've explored Rio and Sao Paulo Brazil and met wonderful people while visiting. I plan to return so I can hike and see the rain forests.
+ I hitched a ride with a friend and traveled through many of the Southern USA states.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share information on how to use computers and many programs (I'm no expert, but I can learn programs rather quickly) as well as HTML.
I took a course in Psychology and studied it on the side, so I can discuss anything related to it.
I love science (astronomy and "earth-space" are my favorites, but I'm interested in all forms. I'd love to learn more and share what I do know).
I can help others with personal fitness, if they are interested.
There are many things I could teach and be useful toward others for and vice-versa, I'm interested in learning.
