About Me

CURRENT MISSION

time travel!

ABOUT ME

I'm rarely happy staying in one place or doing one thing for too long. It's like I have ants in my pants, ALL THE TIME. I laugh at inappropriate times and at inappropriate jokes. I haven't outgrown my childhood ticklishness and still squirm when getting haircuts. I still play with tech deck skateboards when no one's looking. I'm very easily influenced. Often I'll go out and buy a chocolate bar that was just advertised on tv. Oh, and I have an unhealthy dependence on chocolate. I act first, then think. Getting better at that though. I don't like making plans. Especially while travelling. I go where the wind takes me. Sometimes that's outside a train station at 4 in the morning with no money, no credit cards, nothing to eat in the foreseeable future and no place to sleep. I'm not a big fan of money. Unfortunately the things I want to experience require it. I have a terrible sense of direction and get lost at least once in every city. I'm almost always up for trying something new. I used to think people were always out for themselves and wouldn't lend a helping hand unless it benefited them. Then I started couchsurfing...

PHILOSOPHY

-No guts, no glory.
-Fake it till you make it
-Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
-It's better to regret something you did than something you didn't do.
-"It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man." - Jack handy
