To smile daily, and stare in amazement
What would my friends say about me? They would say that I am a big bundle of warmth and coziness. That I make any place feel like home and will try my best to always make them smile. When I am not going into OCD controlling mommy mode.
My only rebuttal is that is the nurturer in me. I want everyone to enjoy themselves doing whatever it is. Maybe that is why I cook and bake the way I do. I will bake the most delicious brownies you have ever tasted. Or at least you think that I am a mad genius in the kitchen with a 4 course dinner from nothing and under 35 minutes. (The kitchen is where my control freak comes in, fair warning).
Other than being a control freak in the kitchen the rest of my life is kind of left open. I can be a bit quirky at times, its usually do to lack of sleep. Which is a frequent thing as I do work overnights but hate missing the sun. I can be quiet at times. My job forces me interact with individuals constantly and I work in a rather loud environment so quietness is appreciated.
My philosophies are easy to practice and remember. The first being “Forget regret ,or life is yours to miss” ( Jonathan Larson) The second and most important is to live a life with love, compassion and honesty. If you can at the end of the day go to sleep with a happy heart you have accomplished your goal for the day.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
How do I participate? I host as much as humanly possible. I try to participate in the local Couchsurfing community. You can find me at most potlucks with baked goods in tow.
By leaving references. I try to leave references for most everyone that does surf my couch. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get there, but they get done. Also, at times when we have a couch crash I am so overwhelmed that I don't remember everyone. =(
I recently had one of the best experiences since Gelli. In July, my house full of surfers (4) plus those of us that lived here at the time(3) was feeling a bit small due to the crappy weather. After a very impromptu trip to Niagara Falls with two surfers in the pouring rain. We returned home to find one of the surfers cooking dinner for us. She decided to make a crepes and did she make them. She set the table with fresh fruits, cheeses, Nutella and everything an anything else you could imagine. She invited us to eat dinner , sharing the food and the days adventures made my house feel so warm and big. It left me with a happy heart and warm memories of those girls.
I once said that I was going to read the 100 best sellers of the 20th century before I am 30. I have revised that goal to be before I am dead. I am constantly reading, my kindle travels with me always. I do love to bake and would like to bake for you. I enjoy hosting dinner parties when my schedule allows. I also love patio/porch weather. There is nothing better than sitting on a patio with a few friends and some drinks. (This portion sounds like an exact read from Stuff White People Like.) I also love unicorns, hipsters, and flip flops.
Music, Movies, and Books
As I previously said that I love to read. Some of my favorite books from childhood to now are: The Giver, The Joy Luck Club, Love in the Time of Cholera, One Thousand Years of Solitude, Memories of My Melancholy Whore, The Captains Verses, Betty Crocker Cookbook, Sweet Pickles- Elephant Eats the Profits, Peony in Love, The House of the Dead and Poor Folk and The Birth of Venus.
Sitting here editing my profile with my iTunes on shuffle I have listened to college a cappella, Staind, Tiziano Ferro, Coldplay, Jason Mraz, NKTOB , Sugarland and some others. I do have very ecclectic taste in music and I am open to most anything
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have had a very fortunate life so far. I have given birth to an amazing human being. I have given a family the gift of life, by allowing them to be Daddy and Papi. I have moved to China on a whim. While there I was blessed with the friendship of some amazing individuals. I have found Couchsurfing, in it self is amazing. I also have a job that never stops amazing me. There is so much more of this life to live, I am sure this will change soon enough.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love the area that I live in and if I am available I would love to share the knowledge that I have of the city and the region. I can also teach you how to make some killer brownies or cupcakes.
