About Me

CURRENT MISSION

adventures! constant expansion!

ABOUT ME

I think its really strange to try to sum yourself up in an unreal internet box, but here goes! I'm a 22 yr old vegetarian spastic queer. I love being on my bicycle, hanging out with my friends, exploring new places, playing my drum, listening to music, eating vegetables, and making art. I love campfires and I love when humanity surprises me with its compassion. I live in a city, but all I want is to be in the woods. I think its really important to keep moving and growing and sharing.

! I am seriously horribly terribly allergic to fragrances (lots of other things too, but this is the only superserious one - technically its MCS) which means i cant be near those reed diffuser things, glade plug-ins, fragrance sprays/perfumes, etc. i dont want to be a pain in the ass, but i cant breathe when it happens and thats a really big problem, so if you're here: self-spraying has to be done outside, and if i'm on your couch it would be great if there weren't any scent-emulating things in the room i'm sleeping in, thanks so much!!**

PHILOSOPHY

give back more than you take away
&
Share what ya got!
&
waste not, want not
&
use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i have hosted, i have surfed! working to create community is really important. :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had 7 complete strangers (and 2 accompanying friends) bunk in my house overnight on a whim. i think my grand total was 11? my friends know they can call me and have my couch on literally a moments notice. I've crashed on friends couches, and a couple towns over with some pro couchsurfers, philly, and camped around the country.

Interests

uh...
biking, artmaking (drawing and printmaking), planting, walking, cooking, playing (music and otherwise), making things, DIY....etc... see teaching/learning below

I LOVE TO MAKE THINGS AND LEARN THINGS im never gonna stop.

Music, Movies & Books

Books! madeline l'engle's books (a wind in the door), art books, bukowski, william blake, the phantom tollbooth, short stories, i LOVE books. childrens books especially, i have a small collection of good ones (including gender variant kids books, so cool)

Movies! i like fantasia and fern gully. four minutes. generally i'm not a fan of movies that are suspenseful or scary. i have a dvd of captain planet. i love to watch fraggle rock and the muppets.

Music! just about everything, beethoven, team dresch, things you can dance to, the gits, bikini kill, mountain man, riot folk/folk punk/punk, and the sound of my friends and i singing/screaming/banging on things.

One Amazing Thing I've Done
