About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world through all the simple things in life.

ABOUT ME

I love life, its an unexpected ride. I keep my faith strong and my friends counted. I am just trying to get through the situations thrown my way the best way i can. I try to keep a smile on my face and a pen in my hand. I believe in honesty and trust no matter what the cost. Many friends have left me, in many different ways, but they are not forgotten and we will meet again.

I adore the culinary world and everything it entails. I love to cook and I love to eat. I was born to cook. I am also a child at heart. I enjoy a good laugh and getting messy. I love to dance and be active. I write poetry but only when I am depressed or down on my luck... probably because when I am happy I have better ideas on how to use my time. I love my family. My mother is my best friend. I have big dreams and a strong drive.

I tend to be stubborn and go after what I want. I take my life seriously, in the sense that I have places I want to go and I don't want to wait. But I am extremely silly and enjoying making a fool of myself regardless of what others think. I always have a good time and am always open to new experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

You only live once, make the most of it.
Life can be simple.
Childhood doesn't end, it just hides inside us to be used on a rainy day.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have yet to be in a situation where I can offer a couch of my own. I have surfed a couple times. I have also had the pleasure of meeting one of my former hosts back on my side of the world and putting him up at my mother's house. I show people around when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have stayed with several different hosts and both experiences were fantastic! My couch surfing experience made my travels much richer, wouldn´t have traded it for a hotel, even if you payed me.

Interests

Everything! I love to cook, dance, write poetry, watch movies, give massages, plan parties, make personalized gifts, finish things on my bucket list, play basketball, kickbox, practice yoga, read.... just enjoy life.

Music, Movies & Books

I have a wide range of tastes.
Favorite books: Harry Potter, By the River Piedra I Sat and Wept, The Giving Tree.

Favorite Movies: Silence of the Lambs trilogy, American History X, Primal Fear, 7 pounds, Date Night, The Intouchables.

Favorite Music: EVERYTHING! Lots of blues, jazz and alternative rock. I love Motown, I love country. From time to time I listen to fall out boy, randy travis, staind, ray charles, paramore, Elvis, Evanescense... A little of everything!

One Amazing Thing I've Done
