Discovery. That makes me sound like a space shuttle, but it's true :)
As my blog says, In a nutshell: I'm a book-loving, travel-mad, semi-vegetarian (eating some meat while abroad) musician who studies environmental science at Allegheny College. I'm currently studying in Angers, France (et oui je parle français mais car j'utiliserai peut-être ce profile après mon départ, je l'ai écrit dans ma langue maternelle) and traveling as much as I can. Hence the discovery of couchsurfing :)

Why this quote? Because I like the "see the silver lining" nature of it (that's probably my real philosophy) and also because it makes and excellent motto for the city where I go to school, affectionately nicknamed Mudville for it's utterly despicable weather
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far not much. I'm hoping to stay with people while traveling and maybe go to events. However, since I don't have a place of my own I can't host. Sorry.
It's limited so far. Which means I couch surfed once using my friends profile. But hey, there is a first time for everything
I live to learn. It sounds silly, but it's very useful for a student to enjoy learning things. I also love to be outdoors. Everything from running to homework to outdoor adventures are improved by the fact that they are outdoors. For a laundry list of actual activities: reading, playing music, hiking, anything to do with the ocean, biking, running, cooking (and going to the farmer's market to get stuff to cook with), etc.

Music, Movies, and Books
Books: Fantasy, Science-Fiction, Historical Fiction and really anything (the family joke says if you leave a book on the coffee table long enough I will read it. My mother tried it with my SAT guides back in HS. It worked.)
Music: I'll listen to just about anything that isn't rap. But as a classical musician (I play flute) I have a soft spot for that genre
Movies: Just about anything that isn't horror. And action movies are only OK if they come with a reasonably intelligent plot.
