Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well having someone from anywhere in the world coming over to my place – the thought alone is already exciting! Hosting brings variety to my life, and it’s such a fantastic way to exchange cultures, right in my own house!

There are some wonderful experiences to be heard by opening your door to strangers from all over the globe. And in most cases, those strangers, turn into great friends. At least, they all have for me so far!

Music, Movies, and Books

BOOKS I love fantasy. I have an amazing ability to completely lose myself in whatever I am reading. I enjoy Nora Roberts, I love Anne Rice, Anne McCaffrey, Stephenie Meyer, Phillip Pullman(The Golden Compass Trilogy), Christopher Paolini (Eragon & Eldest), and just generally anything the involves a mystical plot line. I occasionally read Stephen King when I can get past the first few chapters... his stuff normally starts out sooooo slow.
MOVIES As far as movies go, I generally lean the same direction as books. With the added ingredient of Drama. I love The Illusionist and The Prestige. I enjoy action flicks, Die Hard, Armageddon, The Rock, The Net. I'm not a huge comedy fan... though I will indulge on occasion when there is nothing else to watch and I'm bored. I love cartoons and watch Disney movies faithfully... Bedknobs and Broomsticks is still a favorite. My most recent favorites are The Spiderwick Chronicles and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.

MUSIC I am NOT a Christian Music fan and I will not listen to anything I cannot understand due to the amount of screaming involved. I am generally not a huge rap fan either. I enjoy current jazz (Corinne Bailey Rae), Blues/Soul(Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Fiona Apple, Bill Withers) Alternative(Tori Amos, Flyleaf, Audioslave, Pearl Jam, Nickelback, ) Folk Rock (DMB, K's Choice, Blind Melon, Damien Rice, Jack's Mannequin) Classic Rock (bob marley, Pink Floyd, The Doors, CCR, etc.)Some Metal... Some Country... and what I call chick music... Pink, Joan Osbourne, Tristania, The Veronicas. I also like Opera and Musicals. As you can tell my house is NEVER quiet. I don't operate well without Music.

FOOD Love Chinese & Japanese, Love Italian, Love good Mexican food(no taco bell please. :-P) I'm generally not picky except that I DO NOT LIKE SEAFOOD. Other than that I am pretty easy going. Let's see... other dislikes... Beans. Curry. Cottage Cheese. Tofu(EWWW). Lentils. Anything with a gritty texture.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It isn’t every day that we get a chance to do something extraordinary. As hard as we fight it, “home” eventually becomes boring and we stop seeing the wonder in everything around us (one reason I love traveling is because home seems so much more exciting when you return)

Yet the truth is that everyday life wears us down. It leads to apathy. We stop seeking out human contact and opportunities to do make a connection by helping people.
