Hello there! My names jillian, I'm an 18 year old female from Charlotte, NC (currently living in Charleston, SC) I'm beyond ready to start my life journey, and o plan to make it a good one. As I told my friends and family about my decision to adventure wherever the wind blows and to use couch surfing they told me I was crazy, but in my opinion crazy ideas often turn into the best experiences.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm couch surfing, because where else can you get to know locals and meet incredible people with incredible stories? I think this way of travel is cheap yet will enrich me in more ways than one. I just want to be able to look back on my life and be so filled with joy at all the crazy decisions I've made that have paid off and were successful. I feel like this opportunity is one of those.
I love life. Life is my interest. This entails anything that makes me feel alive. I am adventurous and I have no fear of death. I think that sets me apart from my friends is that I have an almost unhealthy amount of boldness and fearlessness. So, I am an adrenaline junkie (I can stop whenever I want ;) ) I also extremely enjoy trying new things! I'm open to trying just about anything. I'm also very interested in yoga, meditation, and the idea of holistic healing and alternative medicine. I don't know much about them but they're very intriguing in my opinion, and I hope to learn more about them!
Music, Movies, and Books
I love to read books . My favorite authors are earnest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. I also love movies (almost famous, water for elephants, the help, the boy in the striped pajamas, and Dallas buyers club are a few of the good onesi can think of at the moment.) music is one of my greatest pleasures in life, and I've recently discovered ModSun, but I also live by Lana Del Rey, Mumford and Sons, Sam Smith, Norah jones, jack Johnson, frank Sinatra, John Mayer, Michael buble, the weekend, Florence and the machine, imagine dragons, George Ezra,Carla Morison, Los claxons, the list goes on and on endlessly. Needless to say, I spend most of my time listening to music. I also really enjoy singing! If you let me in your house I'll sing you to sleep. (probably not)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Although I'm young I have been blessed to be able to travel with my family and alone as well. One of my most cherished memories from traveling was riding a camel through the dessert in morocco. It was by far the most incredible thing I've done!
Teach, Learn, Share
Being that I'm only 18, I am fully aware that I have so much to learn still. I'm very eager to learn, as well as teach. I feel that no matter what age you are, there will always be someone who wants to know what you know! I believe with my whole heart that everyday is a chance to learn something new and start fresh as well as impart your own experiential knowledge on others who haven't yet experienced what you have! I think the idea of teaching and learning is a beautiful one because it shows that when there's a goal, a community working to achieve it is a necessity!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I feel like I can best share my contagious sense of adventure and youth. Its too easy to fall into a stillness and I hope to be a light to people. I hope to give people a curiosity about this wonderful world or at least show them my own personal curiosity through stories and experiences. Overall, I promise to share all of myself (spiritually/mentally) because I believe there's nothing more interesting and beautiful than a person who is willing to just pour themselves out and be free. I value that open book quality in people and like to return the favor!
