ABOUT ME

My life is incredibly boring. I go to nursing school and I study a lot.

PHILOSOPHY

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've haven't really had a lot of couchsurfing experiences recently but hopefully I will get some soon.

Interests

Art, acting, traveling, movies, tequila, theater, hiking, camping, gardening, bicycling, shopping, getting lost on purpose, sushi, rock climbing, dressing up, culinary adventures, serendipity, destiny, murder mystery dinner parties, horseback riding, hole in the wall bars and sometimes yoga.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: The Roots, The Pixies, Nick Drake, Anthony Hamilton, The Smiths, Ray LaMontagne, MGMT. I also like country and any 90s music.

Books: Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote, Ordinary People by Judith Guest, and Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. Oh and The Alchemist.

Movies: I am addicted to movies. I love any foreign, Tarantino, Coen brothers or Hitchcock movie. City of God, Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys, Auberge Espagnole, Secretary, Talk to Her, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Unfaithful, Showgirls, Let the Right One In, and Slumdog Millionaire are some of my favs. I feel like movies lately have really disappointed me. I had very high hopes for Precious and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by they did not live up to them. I did like Mammoth and Breaking Upwards.

TV: The Wire, Six Feet Under, Veronica Mars, True Blood, and any Joss Whedon shows (except for Firefly which I have never seen)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most amazing thing I’ve seen recently is a Bedouin village in the Negev Desert. They have a couchsurfing lifestyle in a way; in the desert if you get a guest you have to welcome them into your home and show them hospitality. They way they live is so beautiful and I felt more alive while I was there (riding camels, sleeping in giant tents, seeing how close their community was) than I have in a very long time. I would really love to live like that for a couple of months, maybe years so I’m going to try to learn a little Arabic.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can knit! I also make an awesome madras.
