Fly by the seat of my pants.
I think my best friends would start off by commenting on my loyalty and dependability. I always have an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on. I can be spontaneous and in the moment but sometimes find myself a little shy as well. I like to have fun, try new things, and live in the moment. I'm dedicated and hardworking and would never let those relying on me to fall by the wayside. Despite enjoying personal time, I thrive completely off human interaction and love being with people. I can definitely be a party animal but when it comes down to it, I love nothing more than intimacy with the ones I care about. I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic although you'll never catch me admitting that. At this stage in my life, you could say that after graduating university, a chapter has come to a close. A new page and a new beginning is on the horizon and I'm looking for adventure, opportunity, love and learning. That being said, I've decided, now that I have no major commitments, to take this new chapter and see as much of the world, its culture, and its wild and wonderful people as I can.
Life is too short. Here for a good time, not a long time. Fly by the seat of your pants.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to this website but hopefully to meet some fantastic people and contribute as best I can!
I've had the pleasure and privilege of traveling with friends who have accounts and have couch surfed in San Francisco and Seattle. I decided it was time to get an account of my own and recontribute!
I can definitely say that I'm hugely into music. I love punk rock and metal and spend the majority of my free time at shows and live events. I also feel nowhere more at home than in nature. I've been living by the ocean for four years now and I can confidently say that I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. There is something to be said for the serenity and power of the wild and untamed earth. I'm also very much into writing. Currently the authors that influence me the most are: Kurt Vonnegut, Charles Bukowski, and Hunter S. Thompson to name a few. When I have time, I love painting. I also have prolifically been involved in the body modification community through tattoos and piercings. I often attend conventions and art shows based out of the artists I know within this community. What makes my life most engaging however, is being with friends, a good challenge, and pushing myself outside of my comfort level. What better way to learn your own strengths and weaknesses? I'm also very involved with activism and politics. If I could describe the one thing I learned from my degree it would be to think critically. I hope to take what I've learned with me on this adventure.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the moments that left me awestruck was when a couple of girlfriends and I were heading down to the Red Woods in California. We got lost on our way to Muir Forest and, what would you know, it was definitely worth it. We asked for directions from a small town tourist center and the woman there suggested we drive back down the San Andreas fault line coast back to the woods. I've never seen something more beautiful. The peeling Arbutus trees were the biggest and most colorful I've seen in my life and when the slim winding road popped us out onto the coast line, it was breath taking and amazonian. Sharp green cliffs that led down to white sand beaches and ocean as far as the eye could see. Comparable to New Zealand. The air was misty, hot and humid. We got out of the car and you could feel the electricity around you. I took a deep breath. The air tasted thick and sweet on the tongue from the eucalyptus. All I could think and feel was how something bigger than us brought us here. It wasn't an accident. Getting lost was meant to happen.
