I love people and being social. Meeting people and building relationships is essential to my life. I'm a big fan of doing new things. Family and friends are the spice of my life! Travelling is my absolute favorite thing to do. I like to learn, and I love Geology and Harry Potter. (NERD ALERT)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am leaving for Europe on June 14th, so I cannot take any CSers after June 10th. I want to use CS to meet new people, and to become completely immersed in a culture. Sure, I could stay at hotels or hostels the whole time I'm there, but then I wouldn't meet any CSers! I'm going to be alone, so I like that I can meet people before I go. I think meeting people from different countries is the best way to understand the world, and to avoid ethnocentrism.
Everyone I've hosted has been great! I thought it would be a hassle at first, but I've learned that most of the people in the CS community are generally laid back and quite adaptable.
Travel, producing, snowboarding, family, friends, laughing, cooking, having FUN..
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I snowboarded down Rendezvouz Peak (10,451 ft) at Jackson Hole Ski Area in Jackson, Wyoming with 0% visibility, 53 MPH winds, and a wind chill factor of -43F. Crazy. Stupid even.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you are afraid of people, and aren't willing to open up, couchsurfing may not be for you. I think that couchsurfing could help you break out of your shell, but you will have to work at it. I honestly don't know how to act around someone who is so shy they can't carry a conversation, and that becomes VERY uncomfortable when they are sleeping in my home.. lol
