About Me


Live, learn, travel


I am currently in what one might call an "in-between" stage, I'm trying to understand myself and the way things are. I try to travel as much as I can when I am not shuffling around uni grounds trying to obtain a formal education that doesn't really teach me much about the real world.

On the grand scheme of things, I know nothing for sure, except that I am sure I will never know everything. Fortunately for me, I have yet to give up trying.


- You make the best of what you have.
- Life's too short, don't think too much, just do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am talking and learning more about CS by meeting more people from the community.


I'm CouchSurfing neophyte and am looking to pop my Couchsurfing cherry in China.
