To meet someone who speaks a different national sign language.
I am 24 and I am about to backpack through Europe for a month. I graduated from university 2 years ago and have already paid back my student loans.
I love to laugh, and to make people laugh. My friend onetime said I'm "mostly funny all of the time." And I love learning new jokes, I'm always down to hear a good one.
I'm a really hardworking, responsible person, and sometimes I need to be reminded to just enjoy life. I'm not a workaholic, I just tend to be the one taking care of others, and sometimes I forget to "stop and smell the roses."
Even a bad run is better than no run.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to the site, so right now I'm just getting to know the community, but I'm hoping to start surfing soon.
Running--this spring I ran the Fargo North Dakota Marathon, and I'm hoping to run a half-marathon in Paris while I'm abroad. I also enjoy cycling and working out, but running is my favorite, because its a great way to see a city, and it keeps me happy.
I also love to cook. I love finding weird recipes and then recreating them in my kitchen, like brownie batter dip, butterfinger brownies or beer bottle chicken.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I walked through a waterfall in Northern Minnesota, and swam in its basin. I've camped in the Boundary Waters between the US and Canada. And I went "Deadliest Catch" style fishing in Sitka, Alaska.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm very good with technology--computers, phones, remotes , both setting them up and troubleshooting. I also know some American Sign Language, and it would mean a lot to me to be able to share that. Also I'm great at arts and crafts, and good with kids! I'd love to share recipes, and learn how to cook new foods.
