About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become a native of the world.

ABOUT ME

I do not believe there is anyone who has ever met me who would consider me normal. This is as I prefer it. I...am not sure how else to fill this that could be considered objective. So I will just blatantly state that I'm Awesome, and link a youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYws8biwOYc

PHILOSOPHY

Tech support motto: Always assume everyone is lying. Always assume everyone is telling the truth. Act so that it doesn't matter which.

Social motto: Everyone is a person. Just like you. No, really. Everyone. It is difficult to see this, it is also difficult to see that it is difficult to see this. The ramifications of these two facts are endless however. For individuals and society as a whole.

Life motto: Shine as brightly and as honestly as you can. Some people will be attracted to you, some repelled. The former are a thousandfold worth the latter.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I...don't so far! I may or may not remember to update this if I start to.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All I've experienced so far is travelling with a companion in hostels. It has been most enjoyable, however rather expensive in the places I would like to go. I would prefer to spent the money on something more recognizably valuable than a spot to sleep on and store my bag :) And so, I search!

Interests

Everything.
No, really, it is a most taxing job to try to bore me. If you pick something I know absolutely nothing about, it is likely I won't be very talkative, but I am always interested in learning or considering new things. Especially things that have no basis whatsoever in reality(although things that do are useful too of course.)

Music, Movies & Books

Terry Pratchett, Isaac Asimov, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman. These come to mind instantly, and I will typically pick up and read anything by them I haven't already.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

...Still working on it.

Teach, Learn, Share

When just arriving in a city, people in the airport/station you arrived at know this. Some will likely offer you things you may or may not actually need, for prices that may or may not be reasonable. Wandering around a bit and getting second opinions will probably not hurt you. Be wary of cabs that offer you a price up front. They have meters for a reason. Having said this, if you are happy with the price, and they are happy with it. Be happy. In the end it doesn't matter if you could have gotten it cheaper, and sometimes it's worth it to save the mental exhaustion.
