Join Couchsurfing to see Jessica’s full profile.
To leave a positive mark on this earth.
Things that I am:
A dreamer, an artist, a sometimes writer; a thinker, a planner, a sometimes doer; a humanist, a realist, a disappointed idealist; a scholar, a drifter, a blueberry-picker.
The choices we make in life are who we are, because a person's will is his/her existence. Make good decent humanly choices, and you are a good decent humanly person. Shine in good will, and your life will be the sun.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Only positive couchsurfing experiences thus far. Since I plan on living abroad for the foreseeable future, I hope to make use of couchsurfing to see this world we share.
Equilibrium, philosophy, obsession, irrational thoughts, people of extraordinary genius, people of ordinary genius, stupid people, wordplay, travel Scrabble, aspirations, inspirations, keen observations, handlebar mustaches, listing my interests.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I served two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine, teaching English, which had been a long-time dream of mine...probably the most amazing thing I've done in my lifetime to date.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you anything and everything, but mainly, nothing.
However, I'd love to learn from you.
